Cheap flights with Ryanair can make for a very cheap holiday to many destinations in Europe. As with all of the budget airlines, prices change by the day, however. Since they alter their prices on a supply and demand basis, you are more likely to get a bargain if you are as flexible as possible with your destination and the times you can travel.
Ryanair flights leave from most of the international airports in the UK, including the major London airports (Except Heathrow), Edinburgh, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and East Mindlands and much more.
The cheapest flights with Ryanair start at £9.99 excluding all taxes and optional extras. While they do offer occasional tax-free flights, this is fairly rare. The price of the taxes varies with the airports connected with your trip. In addition, you need to pay for baggage and online of offline check in.
For late summer holidays, Ryanair offers some cheap flights from many London airports to places in Spain and elsewhere in Southern Europe. Flights to Seville, Zaragoza and Valencia, for example, start at £22.99 from London Stansted. These prices, from ryanair.com, include taxes, but do not include other fees such as the optional ones.
Longer haul flights such as those to the Canary Islands start from £47.99 from London Stansted, though cheaper flights to Tenerife leave from Liverpool and East Midlands with prices starting at £30.99.
The above prices are the minimum prices that you can expect to pay with Ryanair, although they will often be considerably higher if you have to fly on a specific date.
