Low-cost airlines have let middle-class and low-class people have access to trips without spending too much money. Thanks to cheap flights these people can visit new sites and also visit relatives.
When it comes to low-cost enterprises you can find leading companies such as Ryanair and EasyJet, among others, and some small companies such as Air Berlin, VolarWeb, Air Madrid (recently disappeared), Volatis, Click Air, and BMI. These companies usually offer cheap flights opportunities to fly to Europe at very convenient prices, between EUR20 and EUR50 average. Sometimes you may also have access to one-way tickets special promotions for just EUR0.01, but of course, then your return ticket will cost EUR14.99. You will also have to consider taxes and some other charges that will be added to your airfare, so your round ticket will be worth about EUR70. Anyway, nobody has so far complained about this airfare.
Why are these companies offering such low prices? Because they are not offering the same comfort large companies offer. Generally, companies which offer cheap flights do not normally reach traditional European destinations but secondary ones, and by doing this, they are saving money regarding taxes. If you are willing to travel to Madrid, your plane may not land in Madrid exactly but in a near airport; so, you will have to get a means of transport so that you can finally reach the capital city of Spain. Planes normally have a lot of tourist-class flights and therefore, more low-cost seats to sell.
Companies which are running the cheap flights business are also saving operating costs regarding their staff because they are selling their tickets on the Internet and, by doing this, they do not need to have big offices for sales and customer service. Their pilots are usually not very experienced and the flight crew has fewer people than usual.
Besides, companies are saving service money as they do not offer meals in their flights. They just provide sodas and candies for their passengers. In addition to this, these companies do not reimburse tickets or money and they have baggage limits. Tickets do not normally have a magnetic strip or attractive designs. Instead, they are printed pieces of paper and they have other companies' ads. Cleanliness is another issue you should be aware of. This is not the best service cheap flights give their passengers. Flights normally take about thirty minutes and that is why planes cannot be fully cleaned.
As you can see, there are many things to take into consideration when planning a trip. If you are interested in traveling without spending a lot of money, then cheap flights are the best option. You can visit Europe with little money.
