Fancy a last-minute Euro getaway? There’s currently another sale on at Ryanair, perfectly timed for a spontaneous trip to the Continent. Best of all, the budget airline’s prices are seriously, seriously cheap.

For as little as a fiver, you could be relaxing in the baths of Budapest or grabbing a cocktail in Trapiani. Other sunny Italian destinations like Milan, Bologna, Bari and Ancona are all under £10, as are Almería in Spain and Bordeaux in France. And if you fancy a spot of culture, flights to tourist hotspots like Krakow, Rome and Barcelona are also heavily discounted.

Most importantly, many of the places won’t require any sort of quarantine (or even testing) for fully-vaccinated travellers. But such is the nature of travel after the pandemic, you should be sure to check all these things before you book.

Several airports across the UK are included (London Stansted, Gatwick and Luton, plus Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle), and the sale covers dates throughout all of May. But you’ll have to be quick: the deals only last until midnight tonight.

This being Ryanair, there are no doubt more than a few extra costs beyond the retail price. But when the upfront cost is so low, who can really argue?

Check out all the deals and flight availability on the Ryanair website.
