It's easy to shop around for cheap flights to Portugal. UK airports offer an abundance of direct services to airports across the country, from Faro in the south to Porto in the north. That's partly because Portugal is one of the most popular destinations in Europe.
It sits on the southwestern edge of the continent, with Spain on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other; with classic package holidays in the Algarve, cultural city breaks in Lisbon, river cruises on the Douro, and much more, it is a long-standing favourite with holidaymakers – and that shows no sign of changing.
Portugal is hugely popular as a summer holiday destination, which means there is considerable seasonal variation in flight prices. Prices peak during July and August, when the kids are on school holidays, and the variation is most noticeable for flights to Faro, the gateway to the Algarve. If you’ll be travelling during this period, a number of budget airlines offer services that can work out cheaper, including easyJet, Vueling, and Norwegian.
If you’re not tied to the school holidays, you might want to consider visiting Portugal outside the peak season, which can save you money and keep you away from the crowds. The spring is a great time to visit Portugal, when the countryside is in bloom and the weather is warm, but not too hot.
