You Could Get $99 Flights to Some of Europe's Best Christmas Markets This Winter (Video)
Plus, $69 flights to catch Iceland's Northern Lights.
The Christmas markets of Europe are known for their festive displays of chalets that sell delectable local pastries, mulled wine, and handmade ornaments and toys all against backdrops of Medieval castles, churches, and squares.
And if you’re looking for a chance to experience one of these markets for yourself, you can snag a seriously cheap flight thanks to WOW Air's latest sale.
The budget airline is offering deals to a slew of popular European cities, with one-way flights starting as low as $69 to Iceland and $99 to stops like Brussels and London.
You’ll find $69 one-way flights to Reykjavik departing from a variety of U.S. cities that include Cleveland, Detroit, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Cincinnati, giving you a chance to head to the country around its peak season for the Northern Lights, which is typically from November through March.
Depending on your home airport, you’ll also find deals to cities beloved for their holiday markets like Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Paris that range from $99 one-way to $179.99 one-way.
Return flights for most of the deals (excluding $69 one-way and $99 one-way deals) start at the same price as your outbound trip, meaning a one-way deal starting at $159.99 can get you a round-trip flight to the destination from about $320.
Return flights for $69 one-way deals start at $99 while return flights for $99 one-way deals start at $199.99, giving you round-trip totals of $168 and about $300.
Most deals are applicable for travel from September through March, though prices for most destinations typically start to rise in January, depending on your home airport and final destination.
For example, Boston fliers will find $159.99 one-way deals to Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, London, and Stockholm from September through the end of December.
Meanwhile, deals from Washington, D.C. include $159.99 one-way flights to cities like Frankfurt, London, and Edinburgh, but they rise slightly to $199.99 in December, and $179.99 one-way flights to cities like Paris, Dublin, and Stockholm that also rise to $199.99 in December.
If you’re flying from Los Angeles or Chicago, you can catch Copenhagen’s famed market and the lights that abound on its lakeside willows and at the historic Tivoli Gardens amusement park for $179.99 one-way, or Frankfurt’s market (one of the biggest in Germany) for $179.99 one-way from Los Angeles and $199.99 one-way from Chicago.
