We’re thrilled to announce the launch of EuroCheapo’s new and (vastly) improved budget flights search, which scours Europe’s budget airlines in search of the best flights deals.

Our new search tool, which is powered by Momondo.com, quickly shows you the cheapest short- and long-haul flights between major European cities, and between North America and Europe.

What’s new?

EuroCheapo’s new flights channel has several new features that we’re excited about:

• Ticket prices for low-cost carriers: We’re now able to show prices and times for flights from carriers such as Ryanair, easyJet and others.

Our new flights search also includes Eurostar trains, when they compare favorably to flights. In this example, the Eurostar costs almost the same as the Air France and easyJet flights.

• Easy booking: Once you’ve found the carrier that works for your trip, we’ll pass you off to make your booking directly with the carrier (such as Ryanair, easyJet and Vueling) or with one of our reservation partners, including cheapOair, Bravofly and others.

• Flights vs trains: EuroCheapo’s new flights search also includes Eurostar train results alongside flights, when the train offers an affordable and convenient option. For example, when you search for London to Paris, results for the Eurostar high-speed trains appear next to flights from Air France, easyJet, British Airways, and others.

Keep up in the air

In addition to launching our new flight search tool, we’re happy to be bringing on Hilary Bown, a Berlin-based travel writer, to regularly cover European budget airline news for us. Hilary will be posting weekly about the latest trends and developments with Europe’s discount airlines and most important airports.

Last week, for example, Hilary covered easyJet’s carry-on baggage guarantee (if you can call it a “guarantee,” that is!), and this week she examined the often overlooked and “hidden” costs of certain budget airlines.

Thanks, as always, for reading and using EuroCheapo. Together, we can afford to go anywhere!
