Ryanair flash sale has cheap flights from £5.99 this autumn – but the best fares are to quarantine destinations


RYANAIR's latest flight sale includes 50 per cent off 10,000 seats on flights running from October to December.

However you need to be quick - as the sale only runs until midnight tonight.

The sale means plane tickets can be bought to destinations like Barcelona, Madrid, Faro and Pisa from £5.99.

There are also Lanzarote fares from £7.99 and Gran Canaria, Malaga and Lisbon from £9.99.

Nearly all of the destinations at the lower end of the price scale are for countries that aren't on the UK government's travel corridor safe list though.

That means that you would have to quarantine on your return to the UK.

Brits who are happy to risk quarantining back in the UK can take advantage of the deal, but families are being cautioned over booking holidays abroad far in advance as more countries are placed on the quarantine list.

There are currently a number of great deals on offer via a number of travel operators for anyone hoping to go away this autumn.

Last minute foreign trips this half-term are at rock bottom prices compared to your average autumn school holidays.

Package prices start from as low as £240pp for seven nights for two adults and two school-children leaving for Greece, £249pp to Madeira and £228pp for Cyprus.

There are more spaces than usual in hotels and on planes heading to the various destinations, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and a summer of restrictions placed on travellers by the government.

That means package operators and travel agents have spots to fill, so the prices are priced to try and make that happen.
