Tourist destinations such as Prague are most likely to devour your travel budget unless you plan the itinerary well in advance. Looking for cheap flights to Prague is one such option if you are planning a budget trip.
Booking flight tickets come with an unwarranted extra burden of taxes and airport fees that might leave you economically drained. But discount airlines in Europe such as EasyJet, RyanAir, airberlin, WizzAir, Jet 2, Bmibaby and SmartWings offer excellent relief, leaving you with an extra penny or two to enjoy your Prague holidays.
Discount airlines sell their tickets online or over the phone and not via travel agents. An e-ticket along with a confirmation number is handed over to the traveller. This may seem easy as a pie, but cheap airline companies like EasyJet, Ryanair and WizzAir do not offer connecting flights to the next destination. Also, the prices vary largely with season, holidays and airline industry competition. The price graph keeps on fluctuating every all the time. Your probability of getting inexpensive fares is by travelling during midweek, early in the morning or late at night. Also, try to fly during the off-season to get the best rates.
Some other points to be remembered while choosing a discount airline is that these flight companies are strict about baggage allowance and unlike traditional airlines instantly charge for extra baggage. They do not serve food on the flight and no in-flight entertainment is offered. The airbase for low-cost airlines is located far from the city such as the Paris Beauvais Airport, which is about 90 km from Paris. They are particular about the check-in time and can suddenly change scheduled flight timings, just a few days before departure. Furthermore, they may ask for a compulsory internet check-in.
Withstanding all these restrictions, taking off on a low-cost airline is a preferred mode of travel by many budget vacationers. Certainly, they have changed the scene of air travel within Europe dramatically.
