"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YUL." - Chris Myden

Montreal to Iceland, London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, or Dublin - $278 to $531 CAD roundtrip including taxes for spring and summer 2016 travel

Newcomer airline WOW Air has just loaded their fares from Montreal to various places in Europe for spring and summer 2016, and flights can be found starting at $278 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

WOW Air has been flying out of U.S. airports for a few years now, and by launching in Montreal and Toronto they are attempting to bring their cheap Europe flights to Canadians.

Their claim to fame has been offering '$99 flights' to Europe. This is somewhat misleading, but a great way to gain attention, as their prices do not include *anything* (everything is extra, beyond just the flight) - and it's usually difficult to find cheaper date combinations mixed amongst the higher priced fares.

A list of WOW Air's additional charges & fees, for anything beyond just the seat on the plane, can be found here.

But, with a new route comes planes to fill, and by being the first to check out these fares, you might be able to spot some very cheap roundtrip prices before they are snatched up.

Here's what I've found to be the most realistic prices one can expect to find...

UPDATE @ 12:19 PM EST: The WOW Air website was overwhelmed by the sudden burst of traffic (sorry guys!), and their server went down. The WOW Air twitter team has stated that it will be back up in 15 minutes. Take this time-out opportunity to ask your boss, family, or friends about vacation time in spring or summer 2016.

UPDATE 2 @ 12:41 PM EST: The WOW Air website is still down, but Facebook group members are reporting that it's possible to book by phone. The number is 1-866-512-8364. Unfortunately though, there appears to be a $26 fee to book over the phone in *each direction*. Lame. (I told you they charge for *everything*)

UPDATE 3 @ 1:49 PM EST: Yes, the WOW Air website is *still* down, and people that have attempted to book by phone are now reporting that WOW Air is unable to even take bookings over the phone at this time.

UPDATE 4 @ 2:07 PM EST: Now able to get through to the WOW Air website .

UPDATE 5 @ 2:33 PM EST: What I've seen from searching so far... (this can change within minutes as destinations sell out)

- May/June will generally have the most availability.

- Quite a few June dates are available for Amsterdam (departure and return) for $407 roundtrip. Similarly, cheap roundtrips are currently available for June 2016 travel to and from: Amsterdam Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Paris, Reykjavik (Iceland), and Stockholm. London doesn't seem to have any.

- July 17 departure is the one date to focus on for Amsterdam in July. Plenty of return dates.

- August doesn't seem to have as many of the cheap ones, but focus on late August departures (August 22 to 31) with a return any time in September. Most destinations have availability in this range. Amsterdam doesn't seem to have return flights in September.

How to find and book this deal

Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) - $278 ($99 / $168) -- where all of their flights connect through, similar to IcelandAir.

Dublin, Ireland (DUB) - $376 ($149 / $227)

Berlin, Germany (SXF) - $391 ($149 / $242)

Stockholm, Sweden (VST) - $394 ($149 / $245)

Paris, France (CDG) - $402 ($149 / $253)

Amsterdam, Netherlands (AMS) - $402 ($149 / $253)

London, UK (LGW) - $531 ($149 / $382)

And remember, WOW Air charges extra for *everything* on top of 'just the flight'. That's their model.

Flying into one European city, but back home from another?

WOW Air's website does not support multi-city flight searching or booking, so you would need to book two separate one way flights. Obviously you should check first to make sure they are both available before booking the first one.
