Fancy a cheap city break? How about Rome? Spot of sunshine? Fancy Spain? Get inspired with our pick of six great value flights on Skyscanner – all coming in at under £50 return.
1. Zadar, Croatia from £32
The secret is well and truly out and now many of us are heading to Croatia for our Costa-free dose of summer sun, but Zadar on the Dalmatian coast is still not quite on the tourist radar. With flights as cheap as this, that mightn’t last for long, but you’ll still find peace and natural beauty if you go swimming or diving along the coast or hiking or rock climbing in the Velebit Mountains close by.
2. Frankfurt, Germany from £34
Big business is done in Frankfurt, but there’s more to this pin-striped powerhouse than skyscrapers and banking HQs. One benefit of being business-orientated is that hotels lower their prices in the holidays, so you should be able to find a bargain room for a summer city break. You better book well in advance if you fancy going to the Frankfurt Book Fair
– the world’s largest - in October.
3. Rome, Italy from £38
Save the sightseeing: when in Rome you could live off food alone. Start your day with locals’ favourite combo of cappuccino and sugared croissant, stop in at Giolotti’s gelataria for some of the best ice cream anywhere, whatever the weather, and head over the River Tiber to Trastevere for a choice of authentic pizzerias.
4. Dublin, Ireland from £40
There’s nothing wrong with spending a weekend in the pub…or several pubs. Whether you’re on a weekend-on-tour with the lads sampling the local Guinness and who knows what else; a boozy hen do doing, well, pretty much the same, or even a hand-holding romantic breaks with your dearest other half, Dublin is a go-to destination. You could both spend all weekend in the pub.
5. Paris, France from £43
Ok, it’s to Beauvais, not Charles de Gaulle, but if you can cope with a bus transfer through the French countryside into the centre of Paris, it’s a good deal. If you have children in tow then Disneyland may well be your Parisian destination, but there are plenty of kid-friendly attractions in Paris, like the fascinating and fun Cité des Sciences, complete with giant IMAX cinema… and dragon slide!
6. Almeria, Spain from £44
Spring has sprung at last, but it’s not exactly barbecue weather, so if you fancy a proper bit of sun, it is hot, hot, hot in Almería. Andalucía is the sunniest part of a sunny country and temperatures are pleasantly in the 70s just now. The region boasts many gorgeous beaches, such as Genoveses, a long sweep of sand backed by mountains.
