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 Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

Review Your Past Flow

Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
