Traveling for the holidays means a few things, stressful airports, jam packed lines, and spending way too much money on a last minute ticket. But one airline is changing all of this for the better, WOW airlines is just in time for those Chicago travelers and/or those who may want to gift someone a plane ticket!
However, if one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to travel more, now may be the perfect opportunity to pick up a Christmas present for yourself. #TREATYOSELF.
Straight out of Iceland, the airline WOW air is offering a 50 percent discount on round-trip flights from O’Hare Airport to Europe. Customers booking flights from 6 a.m. CST Friday to 6 p.m. CST Saturday can get the discount using the promo code: WOWXMAS.
Right now, you can book roundtrip flights from O’Hare, and other U.S. cities, to places like London, Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Barcelona, and over a dozen other international destinations WOW flies to between now and May 15, 2018 for literally hundreds of dollars less than you would normally.
In fact, after a few quick searches we were able to find roundtrip flights from New York to Paris for $225, roundtrip flights from Los Angeles to Amsterdam for $250, and roundtrip flights from Boston to Reykjavik for $165. The cheapest flights we could find on any other airlines for the same travel dates were $389, $728, and $441. You’ll also need to book before 6:59pm on December 23, when the promotion expires.
“WOW Air knows that the holidays…can be a little stressful,” WOW Air founder and CEO, Skúli Mogensen, said in a statement. “[We] hope this exciting deal will put a smile on all of our customers [and] give them a chance to relax in the New Year.”
Of course, since WOW Air is a budget carrier, there are some restrictions and fine print to consider. For one, you have to pay to select your seats and for any baggage, yes that includes a carry-on, besides a personal item.
Also, every flight makes a stop in Reykjavic, so unless that’s your final destination you won’t be flying non-stop. That said, those are two minor factors to consider when you realize how much money you’ll be saving in the aggregate.
Happy early Christmas travelers!
