You Can Fly to Europe for $99 Right Now
You can buy certain U.S.-to-Europe flights for as low as $99 via
Icelandic low-cost airline WOW Air
, which recently expanded to four Midwest cities.
WOW is offering cheap non-stop flights to Reykjavik, and slightly less cheap flights to cities such as Amsterdam, London, Paris, and Tel Aviv, from 12 U.S. cities. (Flights from Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, and St. Louis won't start until next spring, but you can book them now.) Some return flights are just as cheap, so you could get to Paris and back for as little as $300.
As always, shop around first, and keep an eye out for later discounts. (Last week, WOW sold some flights for a nice low $69.)
Read Business Insider's description of a no-frills WOW flight . Wear layers, bring your own meal, and pack light-anything bigger than a backpack costs $40 extra. Expect a less-than-luxurious experience. WOW Air has a 3-star rating on TripAdvisor , comparable to American or United. (JetBlue has 4; most-hated airline Spirit has 2.5.)
