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.

How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

1. Relax as You Meditate

A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

2. Practice Daily Affirmations

Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

  1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
  2. Use present tense (I have)
  3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
  4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.

Begin practicing these positive thinking tips right now. And I wish you continued empowerment and growth on your positive thinking journey.
