Dreaming of an escape but on a budget?
Your wanderlust has come at the right time, as airlines are slashing the price of fares for Black Friday weekend.
Plane travel can be expensive, but if you book at the right time you can snap up flights at a fraction of the cost, with a wide range of destinations and dates to choose from.
At budget carriers like Easyjet, flights to locations across Europe are available from under £20; perfect for a weekend getaway or sightseeing city break.
If you’re planning on going further afield, the savings get bigger too. The BA sale, for example, includes trips to far-flung destinations around the world – all with purse-friendly reductions.
Here’s where to nab the best deals on flights to and from the UK.
For city breaks, Easyjet offers some seriously tempting discounts.
Over 60,000 seats are priced at under £25, including UK flights to Amsterdam from £20.99, Milan from £19.99, and Lisbon from £22.99.
Beach and ski destinations are also reduced: fly to Majorca in January from £18.99, or visit Geneva in April from £19.99 each way.
Prices are based on two people sharing and the airline doesn’t offer a comparison service, so double-check before booking to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
You have until midnight on November 29 to get your hands on reduced seats with BA, with extra savings of up to £300 when you book flights and accommodation or travel extras.
There are a range of fares from £35 each way from Gatwick to destinations including Faro, Portugal, Tenerife and Turin, as well as flights to the US from £309 return.
Deposits start from £25 and holidays include a 23kg baggage allowance too.
Irish airline Ryanair is known for its super low fares, which are among the lowest we’ve ever seen on Black Friday or otherwise.
Flights are available from just £7.99 each way, with travel dates from now until February 15. Destinations include Paris from £11.99 and Alicante from £14.99.
Ryanair’s Cyber Weekend promotion sees new offers each day: until midnight tonight, it’s buy one, get one half price.
TUI doesn’t just offer package holidays – it’s worth considering the company for flights too, especially while they’re discounted.
This Black Friday, you can save £30 person on short and mid-haul return flights, or £50 per person on long-haul return flights, valid for travel from January 1 2023 to April 30 2024.

Almost 3 million fares (for travel between January 9 and April 1 2023) have been slashed by 25% in Wizz Air’s Black Friday offer.
Destinations include Reykjavik, Rome, and Rhodes, with over 300 routes to choose from.
The ultra low cost carrier has a no-frills approach, but will get you from A to B for far less than you expect.
