Thumbs up Another option - adioso.com

adioso.com is another good option. Only Asia-Pacific at the moment (Australia, NZ + SE Asia) but supposedly expanding to cover other areas too soon.

Lets you do fuzzy searches over different dates/destinations to find out cheapest options all on one page. Very handy.

Monarch and Inside Traveller

Hi - just joined. Two things: Monarch doesn't quite count as an LCC but its scheduled service model matches. And it pips easyjet to ACE ex LON oftentimes. Anyway they seem to already do what Ryanair are currently in the news for - last week my online check-in was billed at 5 and was an unavoidable cost.

Second I used to get a publication called Inside Traveller that didn't just cover LCCs but gave lots of useful tips across all levels of the industry. I googled but couldn't seem them - on page one at least. Does anyone know if it's still going?

Their "saver" rates sell out fast.
It has been listed in the LCC since 2005...

Not sure if this is the right place for this question but here goes:

Is there any way to see where or at least the country of Ryanair/Easyjet cities?
I've been searching the 8 pound fares, but don't know where half of the cities are, and have had to search in google maps. Is there anywhere within the airlines site itself that tells you?

I saw the link to http://www.low-cost-airline-guide.co...ine_routes.htm in this thread, so doing a ctrl+f is probably an option, but was hoping for some trick within the booking tool itself.

Basically I'm interested in cheap fares first, and interesting places second...

Not sure if I understood your question, but do you mean a route map like this? http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/dests.php

Hi, I hope this is not spamming (if admin takes it like that please cancel this reply not me! I really start to enjoy being here and reading the forums)!

But almost all of you write down your favourite sites...So these are mine favourite:

http://www.flylowcostairlines.org (you can search connections: airport-airport, town-town, country-country...information about airports and airlines..) - very nice website, however it is not possible to book flights there

http://www.myairdeals.com (it is very nice - but on the other hand i think there are plenty of sites like this one. You register for free, than you choose connections you are interested in and when there is a deal or discount on selected routes, you will receive an email with some info - also you cannot book directly at the websites)

My favourite low cost airlines (mainly for Central and East Europe):

http://www.smartwings.com
http://www.click4sky.com
http://www.wizzair.com
http://www.airberlin.com
http://www.germanwings.com
http://www.skyeurope.com
http://www.danubewings.com

I have some other tips, however it is not in English :-( so i hope you enjoy my sites too :-) and btw thanks for your tips

Admins don't deal with SPAM, that's what they have us volunteer moderators for

Glad you enjoy the forums, they are quite addictive. Just wait till you read Mileage Run forum ....

BTW, what is your home airport? It would be nice if new members would include that info in their profile.

BTW Lizinka, I edited your post for a couple of typos, but did not change anything else.

An outstanding site for a U.S. based passenger who was having mucho trouble booking a European LCC with a U.S. issued credit card. No problem at all making the booking via bestflights.com.^^

I'd add also http://www.flyograpy.co.uk - budget airlines interactive map - very nice overview of all low-cost carriers flying to and from UK and Ireland presented on interactive map.

Any LCC flights between Singapore and Delhi, India?

Are there any decent LCC's operating between SIN and DEL (India)? If so, I'd appreciate some pointers. None is showing up in normal portal searches.
