What’s the deal with insanely cheap flights to Europe?
This fall, you can fly between Boston or Washington and Amsterdam or Paris for an amazing $99 one-way with low-cost carrier WOWair, but you need to hurry, as seats are limited.
The $99 fares are offered only one day a week on each route and some flights connect via WOW’s hub in Reykjavik, so taking longer than direct flights. Also, the price only includes 7kg carry-on, but at this price there had to be at least a little catch. If you want to increase your on-board baggage allowance to 12kg, add $38 to the price, or $67 for 20kg of hold luggage.
If you need a round-trip ticket, you may be able to get one for around $350 if your dates match up, but if you just need a one-way, grab this fantastic $99 all-in deal while you can.
