12 cheap places to fly to this Autumn from Manchester Airport

I for one love a good deal and if it’s one that means I can get to a nice country for cheaper than it costs to get 50 miles from here, I’m bloody in.

This time of year is great because it means you can either visit Christmas markets in their place of origin or you can still chase the very last of the sun in Portugal or Spain.

So if you love a good winter city break or a milder beach holiday, here’s a roundup of the absolute best and cheapest flights out of Manchester this autumn / winter.

Barcelona
One of the greatest cities on Earth for a fraction of the price you would pay to travel there in summer, you probably couldn’t laze on the beach in November but you can most definitely hike up to Parc Guell, admire the Sagrada Familia and eat in every amazing restaurant and bar in the Gothic Quarter.

New York
Talk about a bloody bargain! Walk the streets you’ve only ever dreamed about, be it off the beaten track or Times Square and Broadway, for just over £200 return, you’d be mad to miss out on this!

Brussels
Brussels is absolutely beautiful in itself with architecture to die for and a history to match. You can even get a train to the wonderful Bruges for as little as 12 euros which, as a combined trip, is cheaper than a return to Birmingham. Don’t forget to drink your weight in strong lagers.

Berlin
Have you ever heard anyone come back from Berlin and say they had a terrible time? That’s because it’s impossible. You could be there in a blink of an eye for less than your commute to work.

Catch some winter sun in gorgeous Faro and discover all of its hidden little gems. Even though it won’t be as warm as the summer, you can still go and take advantage of the breathtaking coastline.

Hamburg
Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany. It’s also home to Reeperbahn – a notorious party and red light district offering as many bars, cafes and street food as you could ever want.

From £45 return

Shannon
Being an Irish company, Ryanair will smash out these kind of flights around 30 times a day, but if Dublin is too expensive then you’ve always got Shannon – conveniently located on the other side of Ireland and a massive contrast to the capital. Just a few miles from the town of Limerick, Shannon is perfect for a few days of holiday action, featuring everything you would need in a few short days.

Belfast
The city has completely reinvented itself over the last few years and is quickly becoming one of Europe’s go-to destinations, not least due to the fantastic bar and night scene, the stunning scenery and of course – Game of Thrones.

Oslo
Oslo is a great place for a short break and winter is the perfect time to check iy out. Of course it’s going to be absoliyrly freezing but get wrapped up, walk around the harbour, see the Winter Olympic ski slope and visit great live music bars around the city and you won’t be disappointed.

Dublin
That’s right – you can get yourself to Dublin and dance the cold away with a Guinness in one hand, and music in your ears. There’s always a banging party down here in Ireland’s capital and although it’s not the cheapest place – it’s always a lot of fun.

From £26 return
Ryanair

Alicante
You can’t beat a bit of Benidorm. Expect full English breakfasts served with an ice cold pint while Only Fools and Horses plays on the 60 inch screen in front of you. Top beaches too actually.

From £34 return

Nuremburg
Home to some fantastic historical sites and architecture, as well as an apparently brilliant clubbing scene – Nuremberg has moved on from silly Rallies and Trials for sure. Expect great food including sausages, wonderful kebabs and even better beer.
