The past decade has seen the popularity of last-minute city breaks soar… quite literally. With an increased focus on low-cost holiday lets and private flat rentals instead of swanky five-star hotels, more customers than ever are opting for affordable getaways and prioritising authentic experiences with exploration at their heart. It’s no wonder then that Ryanair continues to lead the pack as Europe’s number one low-cost airline. Safely guiding over 130 million passengers on their travels per year and landing 2000 flights a week, Ryanair delivers an expansive service at exceptionally competitive prices.
The Sky’s the Limit
Flying to 220 destinations across 35 countries, Ryanair is the first airline to have hit the one-billion passenger mark back in 2017. Perhaps you’re planning an annual holiday. Perhaps you’ve been put in charge of your friend’s stag or hen do and want to pull a showstopping city break out of your hat. Perhaps you just need a last-minute getaway to de-stress a bit. Whatever the reason for your break may be, Ryanair may have the flight for you.
Increasingly expensive rail fares have prompted many UK passengers to fly locally. With flights to from London to Edinburgh coming in as cheap as £46, flying with Ryanair may well be a cost-effective and convenient alternative to your long-haul train journeys. You’ll be guaranteed a seat, arrive in under half the time, and take in a spectacular bird’s eye view of your chosen city as you come in to land.
A recurring gripe for frequent flyers is the cost of upgrading their standard ticket. It’s always a disappointment to find that adding additional luggage allowance/comfort enhancing perks to your ticket can hike prices to eye-watering amounts. You can upgrade to a Ryanair Plus ticket for as little as £24 and benefit from a 20kg check-in bag allowance, priority boarding, reserved standard seat, and two on board cabin bag allowance. The fact that Ryanair’s flights are so cheap to begin with really takes the sting out of optional upgrades.
