Iceland: Nonstop Starting at €108 From Europe in October 2020 (Hand Luggage Only)
Icelandair offers cheap nonstop flights from numerous European cities to Reykjavík, starting at €108 for a roundtrip from Oslo. This is a base fare that includes beverages, a cabin bag and a personal item. If you prefer travelling with a checked bag up to 23 kg both ways, we would advise booking directly with Icelandair, where a checked bag adds €50 to the roundtrip fare. From London, you can use British Airways‘ nonstop service.
Iceland has announced to re-open for tourists starting June 15. Arriving passengers have to self-quarantine for 14 days or do a Covid-19-test, that can be purchased at the airport for the hefty price of ISK 50,000 (~€331). These regulations are scheduled to end on August 31, but may be extended.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend to book with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
