WOW Air is at it again! One-way flights from Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik, Iceland, are $99 for travel through March 2016!
Update: WOW Air has added $99 1-way fares from Boston to Iceland! And flights from $149 1-way to Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, London, and Paris!
This fare is a great deal if you do NOT check a bag. Because their baggage fees can add up fast!
These fares are a great deal TO Europe. But expect to spend ~$135 and up to fly back, which is still a fantastic price!

Check out my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton points!
Note: Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals. But you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).
If you’re feeling adventurous or want to stay in a more residential area, Airbnb is a great way to save money, especially for longer stays.
WOW Air has 1-way flights from Washington, DC (Baltimore), to Reykjavik, Iceland, for $99. This is a great deal if you can pack light! I’ve flown WOW Air and had a good experience.

And fares back start at ~$135, which is still very cheap!
