Are you the sort of person who starts thinking about Christmas months in advance? Dream about reindeer and mulled wine and snow-capped fir trees all year round? Well, you should probably take a look at Ryanair’s most recent flight sale. 

The budget airline has launched a new London-to-Lapland route – and tickets cost as little as £19.99 one way. The flights run from London Stansted Airport to Rovaniemi Airport in northern Finland from November 3. Return tickets start from £21.99 – making a trip to see Rudolph and co an extremely affordable winter getaway. Later in the month, the flights cost around £80, so the cheaper options are likely to get snapped up quickly.

If you can’t wait until the end of the year for a holiday, Ryanair is also selling cheap tickets for the Easter break. These include one-way tickets to Budapest for a frankly ridiculous £4.99, Vienna for £7.49 and Berlin for £12.99. You can get to Agadir in Morocco this summer for £19.99, too. 

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to the Ryanair website to make the most of the sale.
