How to Book an EasyJet Flight Before Tickets for It Go on Sale

For some time, travellers have been able to book easyJet flights that the search function on the company website showed as unavailable. Here is how you can do so too: On the easyJet homepage, search for a flight to your desired destination but specify a date that’s not too far into the future (e.g. next month). Then, to search for a flight on your desired dates (such as ten months from now), use the Year-view or 3-week-view tabs or the New Search button.

This information should be enough to help you book your flight, but in case it isn’t, a step-by-step explanation of this method follows below. Read more

I Love Lowcost, but Here’s Why I’ll Never Travel with Easybus Again

How to avoid EasyJet’s high prices

Tired of working? Dreaming of a week in Tenerife? Get your family and your swimming suit and go for it! Easyjet offers daily flights to Tenerife, so finding the perfect flight shouldn’t be a problem.

But wait! The final price of a return flight from London to Tenerife South for a family of four (travelling without hold luggage!!!) is £1,785! This is the price you get on the EasyJet website on the 12th of July 2012, for a return flight departing on the 12th of August 2012 and returning on the 19th of August. If this is way too much for you to pay, you should definitely continue reading in order to find out how to get a much lower price for that Easyjet flight, in that exact period! Read more

Travelling with children by plane (part 2)

As I already mentioned in part 1, flying with infants or small children is different from traveling in a group of adults, so you should be prepared for it. Today I will answer a few other frequent questions about traveling with young children. Read more
