    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.
