Europeans really have it made... good beer, great cheese, awesome nightlife. And– most importantly to us pirates–insanely affordable airlines! Once you touch down on European soil, it's remarkably easy and affordable to get from one place to another. Whether you're looking to city-hop, discover a lesser-known gem like Vilnius, or save on that dream vacation to Greece, budget airlines offer an easy and affordable solution.
Remember: Budget or low-cost airlines offer cheap fares by reducing the number of services offered in-flight and before departure.
Check-in: Timely check-in is essential; late-comers will and are frequently left behind, so be sure to leave plenty of time to check-in and make it to your gate. Some airlines (like Ryanair) charge extra for airport check-in, so make sure to check-in online where possible.
Baggage/ In-flight services: Checked baggage costs extra and carry-on allowance is limited (see table below). Restrictions are often enforced more strictly than on traditional airlines and it's important to adhere closely to baggage guidelines to avoid hefty fees at the airport. In-flight entertainment and refreshments are typically not offered or are available for an additional fee.
Pack light, prepare a good playlist, bring a few snacks and enjoy the savings!
