The low season of travel is upon us. Between now and the December holidays airlines will be competing to get your tourism dollars with bargain basement airfares. Right now is the perfect time to score a big travel win and snag a super cheap deal. If you’re willing to fly on certain days between now and March, you’re in luck. Prices are as low as $40 each way around Europe and there are some serious discounts for flights around America, too.

Let’s jump into a few options!

WOWAir

Iceland’s WOWAir is changing the game when it comes to discount air travel between the USA and Europe. The budget carrier just announced a new route between Dallas and Iceland. That gives WOWAir 13 destinations in the US to choose from to get those cheap seats.

Right now you there’s a slew of tickets from American cities to European cities for $99 each way (although some of the deals are for next summer). Flights go up only incrementally from there. You can chase Jon Snow and snag a ticket from LA to Reykjavik for only $129 each way.

Aer Lingus

Ireland’s flagship airline just started a big winter sale if you fly between November and March. Prices for flights between American cities and Ireland start at €169/$203 each way from the east coast and €219/$263 each way from the west coast.

Once you’re in Europe, Aer Lingus’ sale extends to the rest of the continent as well. Flight from Dublin to an array of European destinations start at €29/$34 one way. Winter wonderlands and Christmas Markets await!

Spirit

Spirit is running a big sale until midnight tomorrow. One way tickets around America, Mexico, and the Caribean are as cheap as $25 for members and $45 for non-members. Of course, that doesn’t include baggage fees and incidentals, but, damn, that’s cheap. 25 bucks to fly from Chicago to Boston is a steal.

Norwegian

WOWAir’s competitor for dirt cheap trans-Atlantic airfares is Norwegian Air. And they’re throwing down some competitive fares right now from all over the US to Europe.

One way flights from New York (area) to Belfast are only $89 each way in October. Even flights from the west coast are cheap. Seattle to London is as low as $159 one way in December. Who’s ready to do all their holiday shopping in London this year???
