Ryanair is selling £3 flights to one of the world's best places dubbed 'Tiger City'

Ryanair is selling £3 flights to one of the world's best places dubbed 'Tiger City'

You can genuinely go on holiday for a few quid

Saving the pennies has become standard practice so we can all enjoy a week or two holidaying overseas every year.

But a game-changing deal currently available on Ryanair has flights available for a couple of quid - literally.

The budget airline is well known for its cheap flights that give pretty much everyone the ability to jet off - especially if they budget right.

Already this year the Irish company had released £20 tickets to the 'Maldives of Europe', which is a truly stunning destination.

There was also £15 flights to a hidden gem city that has pints for as little as £2.

But Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary has bettered himself once again and to a point where we're struggling to think of a time when flights were ever this cheap.

Right now, you can fly to one of Europe's prettiest cities for £3.

Dubbed the 'Tiger City', it's one of the continent's most vibrant capital cities and is closer to home than you might think.

It's a city with a rich history and played a large part in the Viking Age of northern Europe, with the city founded back in 1040. That's old.

We are, of course, talking about Oslo, the capital city of Norway.

It's one of the best cities in the world according to Lonely Planet, which put it in it's Top Ten Cities list for 2018. The guide praised the city's 'innovative architecture and unmissable museums alongside cool bars, bistros and cafes'.

The Wall Street Journal also described it as the 'newest capital of Nordic cool'.

The city itself is beautiful and packed full of innovative architecture and museums with an ever-growing scene revolving around food, fashion, art, and music.

Among the attractions you can visit are its landmark Opera House, where you can walk on its roof, as well as the Astrup Fearnley museum, which is one of Scandinavia’s most notable locations for contemporary art.

When it comes to food, there's something for everyone. You can opt for Michelin star restaurants or, if you're not wanting to splash the cash quite so much, take a look at the choice in the city's food halls and food truck locations.

Norwegian ingredients and traditions can be found across many menus and is definitely worth trying for a true deep-dive into Scandi culture.

And fear not, Oslo is regarded as one of the safest places to visit in all of Europe. Keep your belongings close, but it's nice to know quick-fingered thieves aren't as common.

A large statue of a tiger can also be found outside Oslo Central Station, a regular spot off for tourists wanting a picture. Oslo's nickname of 'Tiger City' is likely inspired by a 1870 poem by Norwegian writer Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, which described a fight between a horse and a tiger - the tiger representing the dangerous city vs the horse's safe countryside.

Nowadays, the nickname has positive connotations with it being used to describe exciting things happening in the city.

A bargain can be had.

To take advantage of the £3 flights, you'll need to book for a trip on Thursday, 21 March from Manchester Airport. Return flights a few days later on the Saturday go for £27, meaning you can get there and back for less than £30.

You can also get a hotel for less than £100 a night, making it a well-priced trip all-in-all.
