Are you traveling Europe on the cheap? What are the low-cost airlines in Europe?
Before booking a bus or a train, it’s best to check the flights. You may be surprised by how much you can save. I traveled to many European countries, and my tickets never reached 150 euros.
Here are the top budget airlines in Europe you would love to know about.
Top tips for finding cheap flights to Europe
I always check Skyscanner first to see my options. I also shop around the dates and times and check which destination is cheap for a certain period.
Some days are more expensive than others, so if you can arrange your time, you’ll save a bunch. You can check my budget flight websites to learn more.
Sometimes I also find cheap flights by checking airplanes’ websites directly since some good deals do not appear on comparison websites.
Top budget airlines in Europe
Ryanair is my go-to airline for cheap flights. You can save lots of money with this airline. I have used it several times, and these are my reviews.
- Incredibly cheap. You can find good deals starting from 15 Euro.
- User-friendly website
- You can bring a carry-on suitcase with a bag on board.
- Hassle at the check-in if you don’t hold a proper passport. If you travel around Europe and are not an EU resident, you must do a passport checkup at the check-in luggage point.
- The seat is very tiny and not that comfortable. If you’re tall, you feel very uncomfortable during the flights. However, I think it’s acceptable if you’re looking for a cheap option to go from place to place in a short period.
- High charge if you bring extra luggage. Therefore check out the allowance rules carefully before you fly.
- They play many commercials on airplanes, which isn’t very pleasant. It’s quite understandable that Ryanair tries to have more income from selling stuff on the plane.
Norwegian is one of my favorite airlines in Europe because its service is excellent. You can have free wi-fi access on board. There is no hassle in the check-in part.
Sometimes the price is a bit pricey, but if you are under 26, you can use the promotion code: UNDER 26, and you can see lots of deductions from the regular price. It can even be up to 50% off.
3. Wizz Air
Wizz Air provides cheap flights, even less expensive than other competitors. However, it’s quite inconvenient if you have more than one piece of luggage.
You will need to pay an extra fee if you bring more than “One piece of cabin baggage.”
EasyJet is also one of the cheap flight options, and the seat is quite small.
I flew with this airline a few times and had nothing much to complain about, except it was late with the boarding time.
Some people will say SAS is quite expensive to fly, but it’s cheap if you book ” Young flights” for those under 26 years old.
Also, the price of SAS is a bit similar to Norwegian. You can get free coffee or tea on the plane, and the service is fantastic.
