Anyone Know A Webpage With Best Price European Flights?

Fri Feb 18, 2005 4:45 am

Hi,

Thats a very good question. I spent many an hour trying to find a website that offered flight prices and comparisons for all European LCC airlines (hoping to find a LCC version of expedia.co.uk)

Unfortunately, expedia seems to only list major airlines such as BA, KLM, AF, BMI etc etc.

After much hassle I just decided to do a search for European LCCs and look at the individual prices, I did find a couple of airlines that were really cheap (apart from EasyJet and the dreaded Ryanair) such as jet2.com and flybe.com

Too bad a LCC version of expedia doesn't exist, theres an idea for someone!..

The only site I've found that searches *some* but not *all* of the LCCs in Europe is: http://www.aerfares.net/v11/index.php

The nice thing is on the results page it lists the total price including fees and taxes to give you a fair comparison.

Their home page needs updating though, it still lists BasiqAir which I think (?) isn't flying any longer.

Another site I've found useful is http://www1.mobissimo.com/travel/search_airfare.php that searches more traditional sources along with consolidator sites and discount travel outlets for fares.

Cheers.

Depending on what time of year you are flying the majors are often cheaper than the low cost carriers, try expedia.

you are best off going direct with the airlines, ie easyjet.com, ryanair.com whateverairlineucanthinkof.com where you will get the best fares. most sites like opodo and expedia only have scheduled airlines (although sone of these do offer loco flights). You will never get EZY or FR on these sites or the like.

but as with anything, reserach and time looking for cheap fares will bring you the best results

A great little website is www.skyscanner.net. this website lets you put in your routes and dates and will compare airlines prices. You can also look at the route for the whole month to see when is cheapest. It doesn't have all the airlines, but is very comprehensive.

A very good 'general' flights site for Europe is . It's a metasearch of many other travel sites and seekout the best deals....

Skyscanner is really good. Never been able to find a site that offers flights from Bournemouth Airport before.

I am surprised that nobody mentioned Expedia.de. There I found always very good fares for flights in Business and Economy Class.

Don't know where my link above went (Reply 7)... Here it is again:

http://www.easyvols.com

As mentioned, it is a meta-search engine and includes input from many of those sites listed above, hence saving a lot of time.

http://www.traveljungle.de/

http://www.traveljungle.co.uk

http://www.traveljungle.co.us

As far as I remember, they include LCCs

Thanks for all the help. I was actually looking for a good flight between ZRH and DUB. There is not much choice: Swiss or Air Lingus. Air Lingus is a bit cheaper. When you choose a flight via London or MAN (e.g. BA) it is more expensive. There are no LCCs between ZRH and DUB.

Hi all,

There is a very good one which is Italian based and only gives you the Low Cost Carrier operations. They also can do comparison and the site advises you when there is a cheaper mainline alternative and you can even book it.

http://www.volagratis.com

I think its a great site.

Kind regards,
