5 Budget Airlines To Consider When You Travel Within Europe

5 Budget Airlines To Consider When You Travel Within Europe

Traveling in Europe can be costly, but it doesn’t have to be! While most of the major airlines charge high fares, there are plenty of budget airlines available that can get you from one country to another for a surprisingly low amount of money — without sacrificing comfort or convenience. That way, you’re spending less on airfare and more on seeing the sights!

1. Ryanair

Ryanair is one of the biggest budget airlines in Europe, with flights going from Ireland and the UK to Greece and Romania, and everywhere in between. The site features flights for as little as 10 euros for a one-way trip. In addition to flights, Ryanair also has deals on rental cars and hotels. Often, these can be combined with flights to create a discount package, so you can save money on every aspect of your trip. Because Ryanair is such a popular company, there are also many flight times offered. This saves travelers the hassle of sacrificing convenience of travel time for price, because Ryanair can deliver both.

2. easyJet

easyJet  is a UK-based company that operates mainly in Europe, with many destinations flying in and out of England and Scotland. However, this company also has deals on airfare to other locales, like Egypt and Israel. easyJet has teamed up with Bookings.com and Europcar to bring customers package deals on hotel and car accommodations, and the airliner often has holiday package deals for 3-5 days. Coordinating an entire vacation can be difficult, but these packages make it much easier to plan everything in one sitting, without having to deal with multiple companies or toggling between websites.

3. airberlin

airberlin has one of the most extensive lists of flight options out of all the European budget airlines. It often has deals on flights from UK-based airports to cities on the European continent, with additional savings when hotels are booked simultaneously. However, airberlin also travels to Asia, the Pacific Islands, North America, South America, and Africa. Customers have the option of choosing from several flight plans when booking with airberlin. The airline has options ranging from JustFly, which gives customers the option to have only carry-on luggage, all the way to FlyFlex+, which gives travelers more luggage options, plus larger seats, priority seating, cancellation abilities, and more. There are four options in all, making the trip totally customizable to suit your needs.

4. Flybe

Flybe offers travelers cheap flights to a wide variety of cities — not just the major or capitol cities in Europe! For jet setters who would like a change of scenery from the hustle and bustle of cities like Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, and Rome, Flybe is a great option. With choices like Isle of Man, La Rochelle, Palma Mallorca, and Sofia, the sky is the limit (literally!) for European vacationers who want to explore a little off the beaten path. Flybe also provides special offers, such as Pre-Christmas getaway packages for as low as £24.99.

5. Transavia

Transavia is a Dutch-owned company, run by the same group as bigger Air France-KLM. Operated out of the Netherlands, Transavia is based primarily in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Portugal. However, the budget airliner offers flights to a wide variety of European locales, and even some nearby African cities like Fez and Casablanca. Those looking for a Mediterranean holiday can book a flight to Mykonos or Chania, in Crete, while people hoping to explore a colder climate can hop on a plane to Reykjavik, Iceland. With so many locations and special offers on flights as low as 25 euros, Transavia is a hard airline to beat! Even farther locations like Tel Aviv start at just 70 euros a ticket.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
