Cheap flights to Europe: Play has $99 fares on sale
Now that To play, a low-cost airline connecting the United States to Europe, has finally started flights from the United States, there are sales galore. Last week it offered 25% off flights to a handful of destinations in Europe. Now it’s celebrating its maiden flight from Boston with another discount to a quartet of European destinations.
Play will fly from Boston to Iceland for the first time on May 11. So, from May 9-12, you can find flights from Boston for as little as $99 to Iceland, Paris, Dublin and Copenhagen. The price is enticing, but like other low-cost airlines, you’ll have to pay for amenities like carry-on, checked baggage, or a meal.
The airline began flights from Baltimore in April, will soon offer flights from New York Stewart Airport and add Orlando in the fall. However, this sale is only for flights departing from Boston, and there are definitely some fine print to note.
You can enjoy $99 flights to Iceland with trips on Sundays from September 4 to November 13. Flights to the other three destinations start at $129. These flights are available on Wednesdays from September 7 to November 16.
Although the options are a little limited, it’s a cheap trip to Europe. Plus, Play offers free layovers in Iceland if you want to stay there for a day or two before heading to your final destination. However, this free benefit is currently not available on its website. So you have to call a rep to book, a rep previously told Thrillist.
You should always know what you are getting into with a low cost airline. The extras can add up and the experience is different. (Read our experience on Play’s first flight from the US.) Be sure to add the extras you’ll need before you buy. Still, it’s an easy way to save a little on your trip to get a little more out of the destination.
