As we enter December and the countdown to Christmas creeps ever closer, winter is in full effect and the weather is certainly reflecting that.
Manchester is in the midst of a cold spell, with temperatures hovering around 0C during the morning commute today.
But in some news that’s sure to warm you right up, Ryanair is currently doing a load of super cheap flights to a range of sunny destinations.
As part of its 10-day cyber sale the budget airline has been offering new discounts daily, and now as we enter day 9 of the sales things are really heating up for bargain hunters.
Today is Cyber Monday and Ryanair has stepped things up, offering £5 deals on select flights from Manchester to places like Alicante and Barcelona.
You can also get £5 flights to places like Faro in the Algarve, Thessaloniki in Greece, and Naples in southern Italy. As well as the £5 deals, there are also a load of other cheap flights going to a wide range of destinations.
In total there are £5 fares on 50,000 seats up for grabs, with the travel dates falling between December 2019 and January 2020.
While temperatures won’t be as piping hot as they would be later in the year, you can still get highs of 17C in Alicante, 16C in Faro and 15C in Barcelona – a lot warmer than we’re going to be getting at home.
The bad news is you only have 24 hours to grab yourself a bargain, with the offer running out at 11.59pm tonight, so you best be quick – check out their website here to get a cheap flight.
