    Get to know the low fare airlines in Europe before you start your trip to Europe. There are so many different low cost aka cheap airlines there, that it pays to do some research. It's a great way to travel fast between major European cities without breaking the bank.

    We'll share our travel experience with cheap airlines, so you know where to get a bargain on travel. Vueling Airlines is a cheap airline based in Spain delivering unbelievable value for money.

    Why Vueling is one of our favourite cheap airlines

    In 2004 Vueling started flying from Barcelona in Spain. The airline was modelled on the concept of Jetblue in the USA, offering quality transport at an extremely low price. It's basically a cheap airline with service and friendly staff: low prices, high service. And from the first flight on Vueling, this proved to be true.

    The planes are either brand new or young and well maintained. Plus the interior is clean and vibrant, with yellow and grey accents everywhere. Seats are nice and comfy and come in the flavours:

    • Space One (from €20 extra) – first row and 20% more space. Added bonus: priority boarding + 2 pieces of cabin baggage
    • Space Plus (from €14 extra) – between rows 2 and 4, which means more space. Added bonus: priority boarding + 2 pieces of cabin baggage
    • Space(from €10 extra) – plain and simple: 20% more space
    • Front and back rows (from €2 extra) – just a seat, no added extras

    For all of these seats, you'll pay a small extra fee on top of the low fares. So you decide how much you want to pay for your travels and how much extra comfort you'll get.

    Where Vueling flies to: cheap flights all across Europe

    In 2008 Vueling merged with competitor Clickair, making it what it is nowadays: “Southern Europe's most dynamic, most innovative airline”. Their words, but we definitely agree. They now have bases in various European countries from which they serve almost every country in Europe.

    Basically, you can fly on a cheap airline Vueling from Aalborg (Denmark) to Zürich (Switzerland) and many cities in between and beyond. Think awesome European cities like London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Munich, Rome, Paris, and heaps more.

    Have a look at all Vueling destinations. A big plus is that Vueling flies to major airports and not to regional airports like some other cheap airlines do.

    The proof is in the pudding: show us the low fares! Flights from €13.49

    Please note that prices of flights can change at any time due to supply and demand. The above-mentioned “from prices” were correct at the time of publishing. If you see a deal that suits your plans and budget, book it asap as you don't want to miss out on low prices for flights to amazing destinations in Europe.

    What are the baggage rules at Vueling?

    At Vueling, you are always allowed to take a cabin bag and an under-seat bag for free. All their fares include 2 items of hand luggage free of charge, “but the cabin bag will either be carried onboard or checked in at the desks, according to the type of booking”.

    Adding check-in baggage to your booking is always cheaper than adding it to your booking at the airport. When you pre-book your check-in baggage at Vueling, the costs will be ‘from' between €8 (15 kilos) and €25 (30 kilos). That's the from price (lowest possible price) as it also depends on your destination. Their booking site will show you all details when you book one of their low fares.

    Our experiences with Vueling

    Vueling is definitely one of our favourite budget airlines in Europe. We have been travelling on Vueling for years now. Our last Vueling flight was from Malta to Amsterdam with a quick stop-over in Barcelona. Both flights were on time, so no issues at all. However, unfortunately, the 1-hour stop-over at Barcelona airport wasn't enough for the baggage handlers to get our checked-in bags to our next flight.

    No worries. The Aviapartner staff was friendly and made sure our bags were delivered to our accommodation within 24 hours. Even though our accommodation was located 200km from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

    Cheap airlines rule, but Vueling rocks

    Forget about other cheap airlines that lure you with fares that seem extremely low but add a fee for everything from printing a boarding pass to checking in online. Vueling is a friendly cheap airline that flies to major airports, that have good public transport connections.

    So where will you be going? Have fun in the sun in Spain or Italy? Have a romance with the nightlife in Paris? Or…??? Simply book your next flight on Vueling and fill in the blanks. Travel cheap, travel happy!
