Unlike most travel Websites, where the coverage of plane tickets, and airfares focuses almost exclusively on traditional "legacy" airlines and flag carriers, NoFrillsAir.com is devoted to the hundreds of scrappy new low cost airlines out there that are turning air travel into the fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to connect any two dots on your travel map.
Designed, written, and maintained by a professional travel writer with more than 20 years of experience in traveling Europe , this site aims to provide travelers with all the details, advice, and resources they need to research, find, and book these great alternative airlines, with names like Southwest and JetBlue in the U.S., Ryanair and easyJet in Europe, and tiger and Bangkok Air in Asia.
You can even now connect the continents cheaply with long-haul no-frillers like Eurofly, which has multiple daily flights from the United States to Italy often for far less than Alitalia or major U.S. carriers, and Condor, which flies from Germany to (among other places) India, Thailand, Kenya, and Morocco.
This site has several sister travel sites to help you travel better and more cheaply in Europe:
- BeyondHotels.net - Hotels aren't the only places where you can lay your head for the night, and this site has advice and resources on two dozen alternatives to hotels.
- EuropeTrains.org - A site chock full of hints, tips, and insider's advice on railpasses and the European train system.
- EuropeHostels.org - Even more in-depth information about Europe's most tried-and-true method of finding a truly cheap place to crash for the night.
