This is not a drill.

Round-trip fares to Europe for less than $300 are not something we come across very often.

This time, they’re courtesy of Icelandic ultra-low-cost carrier PLAY Airlines and include departures from airports up and down the East Coast from Baltimore (BWI) to Boston (BOS).

Let’s take a look at the details of these fantastic fares.

Fare Deal — Details

PLAY Airlines is in its third year of connecting the U.S. and Europe via its hub at Keflavik (KEF), Iceland’s main international airport.

As an ultra-low-cost carrier, checked bags and in-flight meals aren’t included in the lowest of its fares, such as these deals.

Here are some of the best fares we found.

  • Class: Economy
  • Routes: Baltimore (BWI), Boston (BOS), New York Stewart (SWF) to Copenhagen (CPH), Dublin (DUB), Paris (CDG), and more
  • Dates: March through May 2024
  • Rates: from $282 round-trip

The cheapest of all was from Baltimore to Copenhagen from just $282:

For just a few dollars more, you can fly from New York’s Stewart Airport to Dublin:

Edging closer to the $300 mark is this deal from Boston to Paris:

Best Ways to Book

As PLAY Airlines doesn’t have a loyalty program that lets you use points to pay, the only way to snap up these deals is by using cold, hard cash.

When doing so, we recommend using a credit card that will reward you for spending on travel, such as The Platinum Card® from American Express. Using this card would earn you 5x Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on flights when booked directly with the airline or through AmexTravel.com (limit of $500,000 per year).

Hot Tip:

One of the other excellent perks the Amex Platinum card comes with is a Priority Pass membership (enrollment required), which means even when flying a low-cost airline like PLAY, you’ll be able to start your journey from both ends with a visit to a lounge (where available)!

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for a cheap getaway to Europe in the next few months, then look no further than these ridiculously low fares offered by PLAY. Act fast, as deals like these usually don’t stick around for long.
