Feeling that nip in the air and can’t wait to escape those late-winter chills? Luckily there’s another sale on at Ryanair, perfectly timed for that last-minute Euro getaway – and the budget airline’s prices are as ridiculously low as ever.

For as little as £5 (!), you can jet off to culture-stacked metropolises Milan, Barcelona and Warsaw. For under £15, you can get to an enormous range of European tourist destinations, from French beach paradises Nice and Biarritz to other sun-drenched tourist hotspots like Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Fez and Pisa. Overall, more than 300,000 seats are available for less than £15. Some very tasty deals indeed. 

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 Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, Manchester and Newscastle), and the sale covers dates from March all the way through to July. 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? 

The sale has now been extended until midnight tonight (March 3). Check out all the deals and flight availability on the Ryanair website.

You won’t have to worry about quarantining when you get back: the UK has scrapped all travel testing requirements.
