Spot of spring sunshine? Get inspired for your next trip, be it a short break or summer holiday, somewhere new or an old favourite, with these six great value flights – all starting at less than £48 return.1. Pisa, Italy from £41You can’t go to Pisa without getting a photo of you holding up the Leaning Tower. You may find yourself in a feature called ’10 cheesiest holiday photos’ but there’s a time and a place to be a total tourist, and that’s here. Photo opportunities aside, there is much more to do in this pretty, romantic Tuscan city. Like eat. Pick a place for pizza in Piazza dei Cavaleri or a tourist-free trattoria around Via San Martino, order a bottle of sun-nourished Suvereto and raise a tipsy toast to la dolce vita. 5. Frankfurt, Germany from £34Frankfurt is all about big business, but there’s more to this pin-striped powerhouse than skyscrapers and banking HQs. One benefit of being business-orientated is that hotels lower their prices in the holidays, so you should be able to find a bargain room for a summer city break. Swap the cityscapes for chocolate box streets in Frankfurt’s Old Town – pictured below. 4. Paris (Beauvais), France from £34Ok, the cheapest flights to Paris are usually to Beauvais, which isn’t quite slap bang in the 1st arrondissement, but a bus journey (offering the chance to see some unheralded French countryside!) takes you into the heart of Paris, so you can save your money for splashing out on an atmospheric hotel in Montmartre to impress your other half. Or you could just fly to Charles de Gaulle and get the regular RER train into the city centre. 7. Aarhus, Denmark from £41Aarhus is no Paris or Rome in the iconic city break stakes, but art lovers to whom the Tate Modern is old hat would relish a trip to the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, one of the largest art museums in northern Europe (so says the brochure). Its highlight is ‘Your Rainbow Panorama’, a 150-metre-long seven-colour walkway on the roof. 8. (Glasgow) Prestwick, Scotland from £38If you like to get away from the stresses and strains of modern-day life, and a week by the pool with your favourite Catherine Cookson isn’t your idea of a peaceful retreat, head instead to a real retreat. Sitting just off the Scottish island of Arran, Holy Isle is now a spiritual retreat run by a Buddhist Lama. Come for just a day, or more, either to simply wander the land or enrol in more spiritual endeavours by taking a course in yoga or meditation. There’s no pool, but the Firth of Clyde is your oyster. 2. Cork, Ireland from £34Fancy a pint? If you’ve already done Dublin or would prefer somewhere less rowdy for a pub crawl, try Ireland’s second city. The perfect place to start sampling the local brews is not on the plane but at the Franciscan Well Brewery, which not only serves one of the best selections of beer in Ireland, but also boasts probably its best (heated) beer garden.

Santander, Spain from £34Better known these days as one of the world’s largest banks, Santander, the port city in Cantabria, northern Spain, came first. One way of getting there is by ferry, from Portsmouth or Plymouth, which despite taking 20 hours, has its advantages, like the chance of seeing cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises). Or you could just take a short flight for a short break. Take a windswept walk up to Cabo Mayor lighthouse to earn yourself a plate of rabas (fried calamari) and blow your entire holiday budget in neoclassical style at the Gran Casino del Sardinero. 3. Gothenburg, Sweden from £37Stockholm has a reputation for being an expensive city to visit, while Gothenburg is both cheaper and less visited by tourists. Splash your spending cash on a shopping spree on Kungsportsavenyn Boulevard – it has been compared to the Champs Élysées – while Saluhallen market is a must-do for foodies.
