      If you’ve ever considered visiting Britain for a vacation there are at least two very good reasons for doing so. First, there are all the extremely interesting contemporary and historical things that visitors to Britain can see and do while on holiday there. Second, and this is what I’ll concentrate on in this review, is that it makes an excellent base for travel to other European countries, since it is so close to continental Europe.

      In fact, at its closest point, Britain is less than 30 miles away from France, just across the English Channel. Travel within Britain can be quite expensive, especially by train


      and car, but it is now much cheaper to fly whenever possible.

      This rule also applies to travelling from Britain to the Continent. There are quite a few low-cost airlines operating out of the greater London area, both to destinations in Britain and in Europe.

      I have personally often flown with Ryanair and easyJet and have always arrived at my destination on time. It’s true that you won�t get free meals on board, but that is why the fares are so low and you can buy snacks and drinks from the crew during the flight.

      Other airlines that were once the more expensive national ‘flag-carriers’ ...


      • are also now offering low fares both within the UK and to elsewhere in Europe. British Airways (BA), for example operates out of quite a few different airports (but mainly London Heathrow and London Gatwick) and offers fares that can often match or even beat those of the low-cost airlines.

        Also, in my experience, BA will offer free meals and will go just that extra little distance to give more helpful personal attention to passengers. One of the best things about flying in Europe nowadays is that you can very often buy your ‘ticket’ online.

        I say ‘ticket’ because you never actually receive

        a ticket! Most of these airlines are now ticketless operations, so all you receive is a reference number that you give to the check-in staff, together with your passport or other ID document. This means you can book your ‘ticket’ online from anywhere in the world, while you’re planning your trip.

        One final thing to remember is that most of these airlines give the lowest fares to those who book way in advance, when most of the seats are still unsold. Then, as the flight gets more booked up, the remaining seats get more expensive.

        So, the best thing to do is book your flights right away for great savings on your European trip!
