For this month’s instalment of cheap return flights from Glasgow, I’ve managed to find the cheapest bunch of flights to date. Like I mentioned in my March post for cheap flights, Ryanair are cutting their flights from Glasgow International to just three routes at the end of this year, so it’s best to take advantage of these cheap flights while you can. As always, I’ve used Skyscanner to source these flights and you can read my full review on how to use the website for cheap flights, hotels and car hire by clicking here.
Frankfurt, Germany: Frankfurt has been featured in these posts since I began them last November, so it’s always a location to keep in mind if you’re looking for a cheap European break. You can fly return to Frankfurt from Glasgow for as little as £18 all through April, making it the cheapest European getaway on the list this month. Just under two hours away, this city strikes the perfect balance between architectural tradition and modernity. You can also travel to Berlin this month for just £30 return.
- Girona, Spain: This is my first time featuring Girona, and after doing some research I think I might actually book a trip for this quaint Spanish city during the summer. It is famed for its Medieval architecture, lakes and rivers. If you’re looking for a base to travel around Catalonia, or to cross the border into France to visit the French Riviera, Girona is the perfect pit stop.
- Barcelona, Spain: Barcelona is another location that has been featured on many of these posts, and is just a three hour flight from Glasgow. There is great shopping, food and sightseeing in Barcelona and it also has its own beaches. You can see plenty of photographs from our last trip to Barcelona on my blog post by clicking here.
- Brussels, Belgium: Brussels is, for me at least, a European city that you have to visit at least once. Not only is there incredible architecture, but there is some really good shopping areas as well as plenty of great bars and restaurants. Brussels also has train links to Paris,Amsterdam and other Belgian cities like Ghent and Antwerp that are all just a few hours away – so if you want to visit one of these places but flights are a little pricey, work out train fare plus these cheap flights and see if you can make the trip fit your budget.
- London, England: There are, of course, countless things to do and see in London. From the art galleries and museums, to theatres and palaces. London has something for all ages, so if you’re looking for somewhere to take your family, friends or partner and don’t want to travel too far, you can be in London city centre just 2 hours after you take off from Glasgow. It’s also an option to book flights to London then fly long-haul elsewhere, as flights from there tend to be much (and by much I mean usually over £100) cheaper than those to the same destinations from Glasgow.
After putting a poll on my Facebook page – please show some support and give the page a like if you haven’t already by clicking here – I’m going to start posting these cheap flights posts as well as new series on cheap long-haul flights.
