Where do budget airlines fly to?

Traveling with cheap airlines is becoming more and more popular, because most of us don't mind saving some money. What parts of the World would the inexpensive flight take us to?

  • A ticket that's several times cheaper than usual? Nowadays it's possible mostly because of popularisation of the cheap airlines. Although the low cost airlines fly in many directions, they mostly handle the short distance routes around Europe. When visiting a neighbouring country, you can easily use the budget airlines. However, you should remember to book in advance when flying with the cheap airlines.

  • Something you should know about the budget airlines is that they usually fly to the airports located a little bit further from the city centres. Unless you're going to a smaller city with just one airport – no bother then. The airports served by the budget airlines are usually located around 10-30 km from the city centre and they're easily accessible. You'll be able to use the public transport or a taxi without any problem. You can also rent a car for the time of your stay.

  • The best time to book your holidays may be during the summer. This is the time when many companies offer cheaper flights and bigger discounts. This option allows us to tick off an exotic trip on our bucket list, so get ready for a holiday outside of Europe. What's typical for the cheap airlines is that you can't use the buffet cabin free of charge. This is not a problem though because the airports always offer plenty of caffes and restaurants.

Which airlines are the cheapest?

It turns out that most people value the price of the ticket more than the comfort on the plane. Is there anything else you should take into consideratio than the price of a ticket?

  • There are no specific companies that would offer you the cheapest prices in terms of the flights. The case is that the flight costs are small because they're lowered by the comforts during flight. If you go for the cheap airline ticket, you simply let go off free drinks, buffet or VIP room access. For many people those aren't necessary elements and they're happier with a possibilibty of travelling to their holiday destination fast and inexpesive.

  • The cheap airline flights are usually around 3 hours long so you usually don't even think about the lack of comfort while flying. Consider the fact that budget airlines don't fly to every country. Be thorough when checking where your plane lands and what's the distance from the airport to the city centre. A good tip is to find out the fare for public transport. It might turn out that getting out of the airport would be even more expensive than your flight ticket.

  • The low cost airlines are certainly good for the weekend breaks when you don't have to bring a registered luggage. It's price is not included in your ticket fare, so if you wish to bring a larger bag – you have to pay for it. However if your stuff fits into a sizable bag usually up to around 10 kg capacity, you don't have to worry about extra charge. Cosmetics or hygiene products may be bought when you get there.

Airline deals

It's no secret that all passengers are interested in airline deals and discounts. How to find them and save up?

  • Promotions are the most stimulating factor in terms of triggering sale, this applies to aeroplane tickets too. No wonder if you can go to a desired destination in less than half price. How do you search for cheaper flight deals? First of all check out the carriers' websites. There's usually one day of a week when all flights would be cheaper. Bare in mind that the websites are usually under a lot of traffic then and may be running slow. But, as Leo Tolstoy would put it - „The two most powerful warriors are patience and time”.

  • Another good way of finding flight deals is visiting the platforms that gather information from all different carriers about their promotions and discounts. This way we might actually find a flight to the spot we were hoping to go on holidays in the first place. If you haven't specifically decided on the place you wanted your holidays in, you might actually end up booking a great holiday for the whole family. So go ahead and look for those deals to save some money.

  • Even though you search for cheap flights, you should also check if any other promiotions aren't running for regular flights, you might be surprised. Many people travel like that around Europe and they don't necessarily spend a fortune on fares. An interesting fact is that deals are usually offered on the openings of a new connection to one place or another. That way it's worth your while to follow several carriers with their offers and keep your eyes on the prize.

  • Which arilines are the safest?

    Traveling on a plane is considered one of the safest means of transport, even though this fact may shock some of you. It's hard to differentiate between various companies because the standards are the same. Every plane is tested before every departure and is double checked on many points concernign safety. Needless to say thay every eary, all aeroplanes undergo an annual examination to verify their condition. The cheap airlines fleet undergo the same process as the more expensive carriers. The difference may be only in the comfort of flying. For example, some planes would have expanded leg space and other ones more comfortable seats. However that isn't in any way a safety factor.
