Why fly on European budget airlines?
Europe has a large number of low cost airlines offering cheap flights to almost every European country. European low cost airlines offer budget priced fares, flexibility on when and where to travel and serve many destinations not flown to by full fare airlines.
How and where to buy tickets
Most European discount airlines only sell ticket over the Internet and via the phone. Usually you can't shop tickets for these airlines via travel agents.
You book, pay and receive a confirmed ticket on the airline's web site. You pay for your ticket using a credit card and receive an electronic ticket that you bring with you to the airport on the day of departure. In order to check-in for the flight you need to produce the booking reference number and a valid photo identification card. Some airlines, most notably Ryanair, require that you print the electronic ticket and bring it to the airport. This is because the ticket contains a bar-code
Using Euroflights.info you can easily find routes and destinations served by European discount airlines and go on to book your cheap vacation or business flight.
Flight shopping – How to find the best priced tickets!
Tickets for flights on European discount airlines are not sold at a fixed price. Most airlines increase the price as seats are sold and as the date of departure approaches. Buying a last minute ticket on a discount airline can sometimes be just as expensive as travelling on a full fare airline.
To get the best ticket prices when travelling on low cost airlines you usually have to buy your tickets well in advance of the date you want to travel on.
Some low cost airlines have sales and promotion periods where you can get tickets for cheap flights inside Europe at a fixed price independent of the number of free seats on the flight. You may have to travel on certain days of the week and book a minimum number of days before departure. Information on such sales periods is often only published on each airline's web site and can also be found in the news section of Euroflights.info.

Cancelling or changing a ticket on a budget airline
Few, if any, low cost airlines will give you a refund if you need to cancel your reservation. Some offer an insurance that can be paid at the time of booking and which will allow you to cancel the flight for certain reasons.
Many European discount airlines allow you to change your reservation for a fee. This fee is on to of a charge for the difference between what you paid for the original ticket and the price of the new ticket at the time you change your reservation.
Travelling on European discount airlines
The European budget airlines offer tickets at a low price, but this does not come for free. Read more below.
- Luggage usually can't be checked through from one flight to the next. If you are connecting between two flights, you will usually have to pick up your luggage and check it in again for your next flight. This even if the two flights are with the same low cost airline.
- No free food. Few discount airlines serve free food or drink, but many sell good quality food at a reasonable price on board.
- Little or no support when flights are delayed. If your flight is delayed or cancelled don't expect to get any compensation from the airline. A few discount airlines offer a limited form of compensation. Should you miss a connecting flight because your low cost flight is delayed, you should not expect to receive any assistance or compensation from the airline.
- Single leg flights. Flight times are not coordinated with other airlines and some airports are not served frequently. This means that it can be hard to join two flights without considerable waiting time.
- Limited baggage allowance. Baggage allowance on low cost airlines is often somewhat limited compared to traditional full fare airlines. Usually baggage is limited by weight and to only one carry on item per passenger. Expect to have to pay extra for any baggage exceeding the allowance.
Changes in the European airline industry
The European airline industry is adjusting to the reality of low fares airlines capturing a large and increasing share of European travellers.
Many traditional full fare airlines are adding new fare classes offering a limited number of tickets at prices approaching those offered by the true low cost airlines. The airlines do this without removing the old business and tourist class fares.
The new low priced fares come with more restrictions and fewer services compared to the more expensive tickets:
- cancellation of tickets may not be possible
- name change on a ticket may not be possible or only for a fee
- changing date or time of your flights may not be possible
- in-flight meals may not be included in the ticket price
The new budget airlines are causing increased competition for the old airlines in Europe, and several have already had to cease operation, including Belgian Sabena and Swissair. The increased competition from discount airlines is also driving airline mergers like the one between Air France and Dutch KLM airlines.
