WOW Air: $99 all in between Toronto or Montreal and Iceland!!

A few short weeks ago we let you know that ultra low cost Icelandic carrier WOW Air announced new service between Canada and Iceland. At the time prices had not been released however whenever they enter a new market they are low. We know in the U.S. their launch prices were $99 each way and figured in Canada it would be $149 but we were wrong! The launch prices are only C$99 between Toronto or Montreal and Iceland! Or go to mainland Europe via Iceland for only $149 each way!

And we checked to make sure and you bet there are seats available at the $99 ALL IN level!
Now what you have to remember however is that WOW Air charges fees for almost everything else so unless you are just taking a carry on to Iceland your fares will be more than this in the end. Still you can end up travelling to Iceland or Europe for very cheap!

Here are examples of the extra charges:

Now think about this, at $99 each way all in you can fly to Iceland for $198. Take a card like the American Express Gold Rewards card that has 25,000 point sign up bonus that is equivalent to a $250 travel credit. So you go to to book your flights with the Amex Gold Rewards card using your sign up bonus to put a credit towards that charge when it shows up and voila, your flights were free and you still have $52 worth of points to use towards extra charges!
