Weak krona makes Iceland cheap for foreign tourists

Iceland ExpressLow cost airline Iceland Express hopes to sell more flights on news that Iceland is now a cheap(er) place to visit

Iceland‘s weakened currency is offering visitors better value for money as their foreign currency stretches further.

Iceland Express, the country‘s budget airline, says that there has never been a better time to book flights to Reykjavik, Akureyri or Egilsstadir.

Iceland Express is responsible for making Iceland cheaper to get to than ever, but the favourable exchange rates are just a stroke of good luck for the traveller. Indeed, a big, frothy helping of Iceland‘s notoriously pricey beer cost comparatively the same or even less than in Copenhagen, Paris or Berlin in the first week of April.

Away from the bars and clubs, the discounts continue. For example, three nights in Reykjavik‘s Hilton Hotel costs EUR 441.90, GBP 334.10 or DKK 3,341 on 1 January, but only EUR 351.30, GBP 275.80 and DKK 2,618 on 4 April.

The savings extend from restaurants, car hire and clothes shops all the way to Iceland‘s famous whale watching tours, costing (on 4 April) EUR 9.10, GBP 5.80 and DKK 72 less than at the beginning of the year.
