Deal of the week: 40% off flights to the USA and Canada with WOW Air

23 August 2018

Holidaymakers looking for a quick getaway can grab a huge 40% saving on flights to the United States and Canada with WOW Air.

What’s the deal exactly?

Enter the code WOWSALE when booking a round trip with WOW Air travelling between 27 August and 15 December and you’ll save a huge 40% on the cost of the flights to and from North America.

Why should I care?

This promo code is valid on all WOW Air routes with some significant savings to be had – for example, you can book a one-way flight to Reykjavik for just £29.99. Flights to the US or Canada start from £149.99 one way, before the 40% discount is applied. The offer can be used on flights to various US destinations including:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Cincinnati
  • Dallas-Fort Worth
  • Detroit
  • Los Angeles
  • Montreal
  • New York
  • Pittsburgh
  • San Francisco
  • St Louis
  • Washington D.C.
  • Toronto

What’s the catch?

All flights across the pond involve a layover in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital and base for WOW Air. The code is not available for stopover deals (where you book stayover time in the capital on the way to another location). 

You need to book before 11:59PM (GMT) 27 August to take advantage of the deal.

The discount is only applied to the airfare, so you’ll still pay the normal taxes and service fees.

What are the other options?

The benefit of this sale really is getting to popular US destinations or even just to Iceland itself. However a low-cost alternative to WOW Air could be Norwegian which offers one-way flights starting from £99 to the US.

You can technically use this deal to fly to WOW’s European destinations – by buying a ticket to Reykjavik and then buying another ticket to your European destination and back –but it is not advisable as it will add significant time to your journey. Plus, low-cost airlines that fly direct will have similarly priced flights, and booking multiple itineraries will potentially add to your overall costs in fees and taxes too.
