There may be no place like home for the holidays, but if your thoughts are to get away after the holidays, take advantage of these two airfare sales to Europe for travel as soon as next week, and an airline contest with prizes including a week of skiing.
WOW Airlines, the discounter based in Iceland, is offering half-priced flights to and from its 38 destinations if you book a new round-trip ticket before 7pm EST on December 23.
The WOWXMAS promo code is valid for select new online bookings when making return flights within December 27th, 2017 – May 15th, 2018. The promo code will not be valid when booking a WOW Stopover.
Note that all flights go through Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city and international airport, so you will not be flying direct to Amsterdam, Berlin or wherever. That adds time to your trip, although it saves money. And there are other restrictions, including baggage.
Swiss, the airline of Switzerland, is having a sale to its destinations in Switzerland, including New York to Zurich from $576 round-trip and Basel from $726.
This is a great deal for skiers and snowboarders, since the airline will transport your first set of skis or snowboard and boots FREE of charge, in addition to your standard free baggage allowance. So you can consider that a $35 to $75 additional savings on baggage fees you are not paying.
There are ten top ski resorts within 90 minutes by train or car from Zurich, including Titlis, with it’s world famous revolving cable car, and Rigi.
Swiss also is running a contest, with prizes that include round-trip business class flights for a week of skiing, train travel passes, and ski clothing. Enter here.
