Where to find cheap flights from Iceland

Iceland is actually a great port for finding cheap flights, but to raise your chances of purchasing the lowest fares you can do a number of things. A top tip is to book as far in advance as you can, particularly for long-haul flights, as these tend to get more expensive the longer you leave them.

Keep your schedule versatile, and consider flying during off-peak seasons. You can do a quick browse of what these are using the calendar feature, and review the spread of rates month to month.

Last minute flyers should look for flights that depart mid-week or for routes leaving early in the morning or late at night.
