Finding Flights

I have just got back from spending a week in Paphos, Cyprus. 

The weeks running up to the holiday were busily spent hunting for last minute flights for the very last minute holiday. Now I know August is the height of the holiday season but the majority of the flight prices for 2 adults and 1 child were eye wateringly expensive. So expensive that I could in reality have booked an all inclusive break with flights, transfers and food & drink!

It is suffice to say that I have seen my fair share of flight sites recently, all claiming to have the cheapest prices to send me away on my sunny week break. I am just glad that I looked under every stone in the time that I had, it turns out that it was cheaper to book the outward and return journey individually this close to flying out.

I found my outward journey for all 3 of us for under £300 at a price that was well and truly under everything else I had been quoted by the other flight operators. Unfortunately the flight back with Jet2 was full already so I had to locate an alternative operator that cost considerably more. 

I have flown with Jet2 before on a rescue flight from Egypt back in 2010 when the volcano in Iceland erupted and grounded an astounding number of flights. It was actually for this very reason that Jet2 came to my mind when looking for flights. They offer reasonably priced holidays and flights as well a great service, and although we all go looking purely on price to start with we all want a good level of service to go hand in hand with that.

If you are in the market for flights at the moment and are within travelling distance to any of the airports that Jet2 operate from:

- Blackpool
- East Midlands
- Glasgow
- Leeds Bradford
- Manchester
- Newcastle

Then I highly recommend you check them out.

I am now back from my week away and I will have a full post on what we got up to, how Leo was on the flights and more in the coming days.
