Five flights for £50: bag a bargain now!

The best flight deals are almost always found in advance, so we’ve dug up five fantastic offers to top winter and spring destinations that you can fly to – for under £50 return! Bag your bargain flights now to one of these super cities and have a holiday to look forward to!

Brussels, Belgium, £34

Belgium isn’t boring. It’s got brilliant beer and if you want to get a little light-headed on lager that beats ‘big brand’ gassy stuff, in cosy surrounds rather than cheesy chain pubs, Brussels is the place to do it. A great spot in winter or spring, wet your lips on a gorgeous Grimbergen Blond at A La Mort Subite (Sudden Death), where perhaps a more appropriate beer would be the Optimo Bruno that checks in at a fearsome 11% alcohol!

Venice, Italy £31

Even the most ardent romantic can be cheap now and again. So pick up a bargain flight and treat your other half to a hand-holding break in Venice. Winter or spring is an excellent time to visit one of the contenders for the world’s most romantic city. Summer’s uncomfortable combo of crowds, heat and canals that whiff are long gone, leaving you to amble arm-in-arm around the world’s only pedestrianised city. Find cheap flights to Venice

Barcelona, Spain, £36

From the Sagrada Familia to the Nou Camp, there is much to admire in Barcelona. Whether your idea of genius is Antoni Gaudi or Lionel Messi, you are sure to be captivated by the Catalan capital. Barcelona is mild during winter and spring, so wander the streets and admire the amazing architecture of the Casa Batllo, lose yourself in the quirky shops of the Gothic Quarter or admire the aquatic beauty of seahorses and sting rays at the impressive aquarium.

Marseille, France £38

Marseille is booming; the capital of Provence, it’s a thriving, exciting, engaging city ideal for a weekend break. As it smartens itself up in the run-up to being European Capital of Culture in 2013, it may well shed its reputation for being a bit rough around the edges, but there’s still time to catch the unpolished feel of some of the cooler districts. So go local, prop up the bar with a pastis at 10am and get yourself down to La Boîte à Sardine for super seafood fresh off the boats. Find cheap flights to Marseille

Faro, Portugal £39

The Algarve’s welcoming capital makes an excellent base to see this lovely region. One of Europe’s most popular summer holiday destinations, exploring the Algarve is more pleasant in the quieter, cooler months outside summer. Faro itself has more of an authentic Portuguese feel to it compared with many other resort areas in the country, and its charming old town brimming with outdoor cafes and plazas are perfect for soaking up the local atmosphere.
