Europe insider flight tips

  • For the best flight deals to Europe, look at visiting during November to March. The continent has a lot going on during these months, especially in the north. Think fairytale Christmas markets, woolly hats and cosy fires. You can also make your budget stretch further by heading for low-cost destinations in Eastern Europe, Spain and Greece. These have just as much to offer as their more obvious counterparts and often without the crowds.
  • Most online travel booking websites have a multi-city option allowing you to book return flights into one city and out of another. Booking a one-way flight to one airport and a separate one-way flight back to Australia from another airport is almost always a very expensive option. Major airlines discount their return fares to ensure you fly with them both ways.
  • Even if you include an extended stopover, there’s no way of getting around a painfully long travel time to Europe. The key to minimising jet lag is sleep and natural sunlight. If possible, choose a flight that leaves in the later part of the day and plan your stopover so that you land at your final destination in the morning. This way you should get at least a few hours of sleep on the plane and after the first full day in Europe, hopefully you’ll be ready for bed by the time night falls.

How to get from the airport

Most airports in Europe have multiple transport options including taxis, public transport and private shuttles. You should avoid taxis from the airport unless you’re travelling in a group as they tend to be expensive. Uber is available in most major cities. Information is always available in English around airports in Europe. Major car rental operators familiar to Australians operate from European airports. There’s plenty of competition, so use an online car rental comparison site to make sure you get the best deal.

It’s usually cheaper to pre-book airport shuttle transfers and it saves time queuing. Most airport websites list transfer companies in their transport section, but you might have to visit the individual company websites for tariffs. Public buses do not service all airports, but this option could save you money if it is available. Airport express and train services are generally pricey but frequent.

If travelling intercity, you can plan your journey on major train operator websites. Search for Bahn in Germany, Trainline in the UK, SNCF in France and Renfe in Spain. Consider a rail pass if you’ll be travelling extensively. Budget airlines like Ryanair, Easyjet and Jet2.com can also get you from city to city for as little as $20 with a travel time of 30 minutes to two hours.
