  • Book at least 1 week before departure in order to get a below-average price for flights to Europe.
  • High season is considered to be July and August. The cheapest month to fly from the United Kingdom is January.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Europe flight deals.
  • If you want to visit Eastern Europe on a backpacking trip and visit several countries, it’s worth flying to airports such as Krakow John Paul II Balice Airport (KRK) or Warsaw Modlin Airport (WMI) in Poland with Ryanair or easyJet, from London Stansted (STN) or London Luton Airport (LTN). These flights are usually cheap, and you can connect to other European cities like Prague and Vienna easily by train.
  • When flying from the UK, cities in Europe like Paris, Amsterdam, and Dublin are among the easiest to reach. These flights offer benefits such as weekend getaways, business trips, and the opportunity to explore diverse cultures, culinary delights, and iconic landmarks close to home. Ryanair is one of the most common airlines operating flights within Europe and has the most affordable rates.
  • When flying from UK cities such as London, Manchester and Glasgow to any European destination, unlike long-haul flights to other continents, direct flights are cheaper, so try to avoid flights with layovers if possible to get a better price.
  • When booking flights with low-cost airlines like EasyJet and Ryanair from the UK to other parts of Europe, there are a few things to consider. Look out for additional fees for baggage and seat selection, as these can quickly increase the overall cost. If there are stopovers en route, check whether they're self-transfer stops or if luggage transfer is included.
  • If you’re travelling on a budget and want to save money on flights from the UK to Europe, it’s recommended to check out flights with airlines such as Wizz Air, easyJet and Ryanair, through KAYAK. These airlines provide good deals. You’ll find that most major European cities are serviced by these airlines.
  • Those of you needing to stay connected in-flight should consider major airlines like British Airways, Air France, and Aegean Airlines, which offer onboard connectivity throughout their flights. You'll find flights with British Airways between nearly every major European city and the UK.
  • If you want to visit mainland Europe, sometimes it’s best to check for flights to neighbouring countries, which may provide cheaper and more regular flights. For example, if you’re visiting Slovakia, you can fly to Vienna instead and reach Bratislava easily by bus or train, while Austria is well connected to other countries like Germany and Switzerland.
  • Should you be planning on visiting countries such as Denmark and Sweden in one trip, a good way to save money would be to fly to Copenhagen in Denmark and hop on a train to Malmo in Sweden, generally arriving within 30min; that way, you won’t need to book another flight.

I liked boarding the crew were excellent but the seats are too close together for such a long flight.

I liked boarding the crew were excellent but the seats are too close together for such a long flight.

The seats could be better as they’re not very comfortable and the arms would be better padded. Only place we found to fill our water bottles was at the Castle Rock bar who had one small sticker on one pillar saying they would refill your bottles with tap water for free! Need some/more refill stations around the departure area.

Boarding went well, seats could have been a little more comfortable

Great flight from malta airport, all on time & no delays, Birmingham Airport a little confusing with the ongoing upgrades!

The plane was late in so we were late leaving. The plane had been cleaned and was tidy, the staff were welcoming. Our standard seat had good legroom but after an hour or so of sitting, the Seat started to feel uncomfortable. We didn’t have any food so can’t comment on that and there was no entertainment available. We did buy some duty-free goods and the prices are good. We made up the lost time and landed slightly early.

Nice seats with matching colour coded seat belts to make it easy to identify the correct two parts.

We waited about an hour outside the aerport building after boarding by the gate waiting to board the plane. the plane wasnt there yet.... It was freezing, 8 degree Celsius, barely chairs to sit, no staff to ask question, no screen with information.... The plane arrived, after about forty fives minutes wait there, and until it was emptied, passengers, suitcases.... only then we allowed on board. there was there babies, and older people, besides of the rest of the passengers. it took me over an hour to recover from the freeze. It was a disaster. I don't understand how the airport crew decided to do boarding by the gate forty five minutes before the plane landed. would love to hear a reply from you. i will send this message to PAPHOS INTL AIRPORT as well.

Flight was first class Experience at Edinburgh Airport was appalling

Left on time arrived early first class ground and air crew

Smooth process, great in flight crew you wouldn’t want to travel more than 3.5 hrs with them as the seats are slightly hard

I travel business class because I like to lie flat on the flight and sleep. I achieved that on this flight, and I really do like BA's new cubicles. As regards the rest of the experience however, I could have been in Premium Economy. The lounge was crowded, and the food/ drink in it was nothing special. The in-flight food was also nothing special, and the in-flight service was pretty perfunctory. Sorry, BA - you need to provide a better service. Cheers

I was told and paid extra payment to have extra leg space seat but we got surprices only. Such a long hour flights seat leg space to be improved

Flying basic economy is never a bed of roses. But with British Airways, at least you get a comfortable seat, decent food, and good entertainment. The service is okay, too.

It was my worst experience. Flight was delayed, without any proper communication. There was not working entertainment panel. We were not even able to watch movies. Food was really bad. Only positive was crew which was great. I would never ever travel With British again.

Cons: "I expected more from business class. I wanted more comfortable seats and better food. The food was blah."
Cons: "The seats are too small no entertainment No fast track for business class"
Pros: "Food and flights being on time and ran per schedule"
Cons: "London airport NOT OFFERING WHEEL CHAIR even there was a wheel chair assistance required. My mother has to walk despite choosing the wheel chair assistance. Now she is in pain."
Pros: "The flight was great and was on time. Down side, no entertainment at all."
Cons: "Lack of entertainment"
Cons: "This is the second time your plans have been late! You were late leaving from Venice to London Heathrow on August 1 which I barely made the flight to Glasgow and then coming back your flight is late leaving Edinburgh to Heathrow And my luggage doesn't make it again! You don't even serve water on the airplane which is ridiculous! Your flight crew were nice but you really need to be on time or not schedule flights with such short layover times! And I hope no one takes anything out of my suitcase! And I'm sure nothing will be done so why do you even do a survey?"
Pros: "Food was good, especially breakfast. Flight wasn’t full at all so plenty of room to stretch out"
Pros: "Board on time or at least updates why we are waiting."
Cons: "Communication"
Pros: "We knew that the gate would close 15-30min early since we traveled to Europe before. We also knew that checkin differs from American standards-you get a few minutes notice to board or get left behind."
Cons: "Warn travelers of exorbitant check bag fees. It's ok to pay 120 euro if you know you brought a lot of clothes for comfort, but if it's a surprise expense, not so fun."
Cons: "The seat was broken, it did not recline so it was super uncomfortable. The crew was not very friendly, the boarding was late"
Cons: "I have travelled many easyJet flights but today’s ground crew in Nice were rude, hostile and not nice to passengers"
Pros: "Speech from the pilot. Only person to explain the situation during the 4hour delay"
Cons: "Everything. Poor customer service. Atrocious service. Would not recommend"
Pros: "On board crew great."
Cons: "EasyJet crew were terrible and short staffed. Queues outside the gate entrance and not in the gate waiting area. They should have had staff to move people to seated and cooled area"
Pros: "Price and timing."
Cons: "Seats are very close, but it was a short flight."
Pros: "Easy and well organised. No long waits."
Cons: "Check-in process for colleague's musical instrument appalling. For lute safety requires window seat. Can't be done online or at automated check-in desks. You have to go to customer services and wait in long slow queue for 2 assistants. Staff constantly bring others to desk in front of queue."
Pros: "Crew were funny"
Cons: "Slow boarding, having to stand in line and wait for the plane without being able so sit down. Flight was late also"
Pros: "Everything was fine apart from the delay in flying out. I am a Special Assistance traveller and due to the delay I had a very very long and late journey back home. So the delay added two hours (plus the flight delay) to my trip home from the airport."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The check-in process is a joke! They do everything by paper, couldn’t find my booking, and so made me pay an exorbitant fee, and then wrote by boarding pass with a pen and paper! Unbelievable!"
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Rates"
Cons: "Customer service on boarding, which is now necesary related to rates"
Pros: "Nothing really stood out"
Cons: "Rude air hostess who was ignoring us in particularli where I was nearly fainting"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The seats are very small, but that’s what you get for flying Ryan Air"
Cons: "We did not make this flight due to an unrealistic connection time. We had to buy a new ticket to get to our destination."
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
Pros: "Pünktlichkeit"
Cons: "Preis des Gepäck und das ich 40€ für 10kg zahlen musste"
Pros: "Excellent pilots did their job very well, despite bad weather."
Pros: "Reasonable price."
Cons: "Was sat nowhere near my group of friends, know one on the plane was sat with who they travelled with. Plane was running late."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Priority upgrade should be easily available directly on the gate before boarding - rather than payment in the long line outside of the security area"

The cabin crew on that flight were super fantastic and super helpful. They were so polite and considerate that i felt i travelled with a 5star airline.

Delayed delayed delayed - always with Wizzair. Staff were friendly and well mannered but clearly the company is unorganized and the aircrafts are outdated.

It's a budget airline. Great for short flight. Smooth landing.

4 hr delay and only told less than 2hrs before. Only given water and nuts on the flight as complimentary service. Left to wait in rain before boarding.

To be honest I did not like anything. Communication to why my flight was cancelled mid air 2 and half hours into my flight. Customer service desk were not helpful with providing information or a solution on what can be done.

I have been treated unacceptably by WizzAir aircraft crew in a previous flight, they threatened me and abused me, and I received an OFFICIAL written apology, but only two (2) months later. This flight had no such unacceptable behaviour, but it's not nice to be left waiting in the walkway (from gate to aircraft) for a long time, just so that the 'boarding' appears to be early, even if actual departure is not.

What I liked new airplane Sitting was extremely uncomfortable! Crew not smiley at all Always chewing gum

The flight was cancelled just 4 hours before the take off...

No food on board. Not comfortable. Had to move seats was delayed more than 3 hours.

Pros: "The food and beverage selection as always. The seat was quite pleasant as well."
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve me when doing meal service. I got up and food but found it interesting that 2 flight attendants walked right by me without saying anything. The flight was late departing and arriving."
