Low-cost Airlines

For a wider selection of regional airport departures we are able to book a number of alternative airlines for European destinations. These offer a no frills service with an in-flight service limited to drinks & snacks which you purchase on board.

We can book the following low-cost airlines:

  • easyJet
  • Flybe
  • Jet2

Please be advised that we charge a modest administration fee for bookings with low-cost airlines, however, booking the flights and accommodation with us will provide you with financial peace of mind under our bonding schemes.
