Ryanair is offering fares from as little as £5, in a 48-hour seat sale today and tomorrow. The bargain giveaway is available across 1 million seats, with destinations including Barcelona, Milan and Bordeaux.
You’ll have to travel light, as the £5 fares include hand baggage only. To avail of a 10kg cabin bag allowance, you must upgrade to a ‘Regular’ fare – which of course comes at a premium (around £22 extra, each way). For example, flying from Stansted to Thessaloniki, Greece, on September 8 costs just £5 one-way for hand baggage only; or £27.85 with hold luggage.
Departure airports include London Stansted, Gatwick, Luton and Southend, as well as regional Ryanair hubs across the UK – such as Birmingham, Belfast and Bristol. Ryanir currently services 240 destinations.
