Iceland airfare cost
It’s difficult to take a long vacation for ALLIE to work, so we chose toLunar New Year HolidaysSet off. The air ticket price will definitely be much higher, but due to the leave relationship, it can only be done like this. We fly AirChina fromTaoyuan International Airport (TPE)arriveLondon Gatwick Airport (LGW), In the middle ofChengdu Shuangliu Airport (CTU)Turnaround. The departure time is in the evening in Taiwan, but it is early in the morning to London, which happens to be the beginning of the day! The return journey is at 17:40 in the local evening, which is also a concept of going early and returning late, so we can play more London ?All air tickets cost about 35,000 per person on average.
Taipei-London round-trip air ticket 61006 yuan / 2 people (including foreign transaction fee 902 yuan)
London-Iceland round-trip ticket 9739 yuan / 2 people (including foreign transaction fee 144 yuan)
▼Outbound flight: Taoyuan-Chengdu-London-Iceland
▼Return flight: Iceland-London-Beijing-Taoyuan
We reserve a lot of time from London to Iceland to avoid flight delays. At that time, I chose WizzAir which departed at 16:10 in the afternoon, and the return flight was at 19:55 in the evening. European low-cost airlines heard that luggage is more expensive than people. I found out that it was true. Because winter clothes were too heavy, we dragged a suitcase by one person. At that time, we bought two 20kg luggage to check in, and could bring two personal luggage on board. (<10kg, 40x20x30cm).
Iceland accommodation costs
During the nine-day itinerary, two days were on the plane, so six nights' accommodation was booked.
We booked five nights in downtown ReykjavikIsland Apartment(Including kitchen), the total price is22,819 yuan / 2 people(Including the handling fee of 337 yuan for foreign transactions). We expect to travel to southern Iceland for two days and one night in the middle, and return to Reykjavik on the last night, and fly back to the UK the next day. But at that time, the price of booking for four nights on the booking website was about the same as booking for five nights (almost the same), and we were afraid that it would be inconvenient to move the luggage, so we booked a five-night stay in Reykjavik, which is equivalent to staying in Brunnholl in southern Iceland. The accommodation in Reykjavik actually overlaps with Island Apartment in Reykjavik for a day. For accommodation Brunnholl in southern Iceland, please refer to the following article?

And stayed in a cheap hotel the night back to England in IcelandHoliday Inn Express London Luton Airport, Located next to the airport only, the price is2234/two people(Including the foreign transaction fee of 33 yuan). In addition, after getting off at Luton Airport, because it is late at night, I don’t know how the security is going there at night. For safety, we have booked a taxi to take us to the accommodation. The price is1053 yuan(Including a foreign transaction fee of 16 yuan). But it turned out that there is no need to add a reservation, and the accommodation is not far from the airport.

All purchases in Iceland are done with credit cards, It's really super convenient, you can use no cash at all. Therefore, it is relatively easy to check the bill. In addition, we exchanged about 10,000 Taiwan dollars in pound sterling before departure, but almost all of it was spent later, so the total cost has to add 10,000 Taiwan dollars.

To sum up, the total cost of 9 days and 7 nights in Iceland + London this time was 182,288 yuan, and the average person spent about 91144 yuan.It is a bit more expensive. Because it is a New Year flight, the flight is not particularly cheap. In addition, when traveling to Iceland in winter, I am not familiar with snow driving, so the cost of traveling with a tour group is still higher.In fact, I still feel that I must go with a group when I go to Iceland in winter. Iceland is very windy, and there are often squalls and snow when driving. If you are driving by yourself, it is really too dangerous!If it is summer, you can consider driving by yourself. The above is the cost of our New Year trip to Iceland. Share it with friends who are interested in traveling in Iceland in winter.
