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.

The Importance of Making a Camping Checklist

Camping can be hard work, but it’s the preparation that’s even harder. There are usually a lot of things to do in order to make sure that you and your family or friends have the perfect camping experience. But sometimes you might get to your destination and discover that you have left out one or more crucial things.

There is no dispute that preparation and organization for a camping trip can be quite overwhelming, but if it is done right, you would see at the end of the day, that it was worth the stress. This is why it is important to ensure optimum planning and execution. For this to be possible, it is advised that in addition to a to-do-list, you should have a camping checklist to remind you of every important detail.

Why You Should Have a Camping Checklist

Creating a camping checklist makes for a happy and always ready camper. It also prevents mishaps.  A proper camping checklist should include every essential thing you would need for your camping activities, organized into various categories such as shelter, clothing, kitchen, food, personal items, first aid kit, informational items, etc. These categories should be organized by importance. However, it is important that you should not list more than you can handle or more than is necessary for your outdoor adventure.

Camping checklists vary depending on the kind of camping and outdoor activities involved. You should not go on the internet and compile a list of just any camping checklist. Of course, you can research camping checklists, but you have to put into consideration the kind of camping you are doing. It could be backpacking, camping with kids, canoe camping, social camping, etc. You have to be specific and take note of those things that are specifically important to your trip, and those things which are generally needed in all camping trips no matter the kind of camping being embarked on.
