Gettin’ there…

27 Jun

If you haven’t already, it’s about time you buy that flight to the islands. If you’re flying from the U.S. it’s definitely not going to be cheap, but there are a couple of sites that can help you find the best deals. For those of you who are students and/or are under 26 , you can check out STA Travel. Skyscanner is also widely used around Europe and can help you find some good deals. 

If you decide to fly into a bigger city like Madrid or Barcelona and hang out for a couple days (there’s always fun and free summer festivals going on), you can find a cheap connecting flight through Vueling, AirEuropa or Ryanair. But beware! The cheaper the flight, the stricter they are about luggage allowances. They’ll more than likely make you shove your carry-on bag into the baggage sizer at the gate right before you board the plane. So plan ahead and good luck on your search!
