German low-cost carrier Condor is promoting a new Munich-Pescara route, which it will be flying twice a week from May 15 onwards. One-way fares begin at €59 (plus €23 in taxes), which means the cheapest roundtrips come to €164. Pescara is the main transportation hub for the Abruzzo region, one of Italy’s less touristed areas.

Condor is also promoting €29 fares (€64 with taxes) between German cities and Fuertaventura, Lanzarote, and Tenerife in the Canary Islands. All well and good, but when we tried to book return flights we found fares beginning at €254 once taxes were taken into account.

Though annoying, this little trick on Condor’s part was a useful reminder that navigating low-cost air fares skillfully can feel like stumbling through a maze.
