If you're looking for the ultimate low-budget getaway then Ryanair has got your back with flights to Spain and Italy for as little as £5.
A single fiver. It's literally the smallest note we have in the UK, and on a typical day would probably buy you your lunch or one drink at the pub. Today, though, I'd advise skipping the drink and heading to the airline's website to bag yourself a quick getaway.
There are less than 10 hours left on Ryanair's flash sale, which is offering a number of flights from as little as £4.99 from various airports across Britain.
Anyone looking to get away after numerous lockdowns - which, let's face it, is probably pretty much all of us - can travel one-way to Hungary, the Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Spain or Romania from certain airports.
If you're willing to shell out a couple more pounds - perhaps forego stocking up on chocolate on your way home from work - then you could make it to even more places, including Denmark, France, Slovakia, Poland, Ireland or Sweden, with prices ranging from £7.99 to £23.39.
Admittedly the rest of the trip would probably cost a bit more than £5, and the cost might increase a bit when you add on your baggage and return flights, but there's no denying that a pint in Italy or Spain is sure to taste better than one in the UK - and you can pretty much guarantee you'll get a tan at the same time.
Flights can be taken from London Stansted, London Gatwick, London Luton, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Derry, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle, meaning people all over the country can benefit from the flights.
Ryanair notes that 'all fares are subject to availability', with the sale relating to travel between 1 May, 2022 to 31 May, 2022.
The sale comes after the UK government dropped its remaining coronavirus travel requirements, meaning travellers do not need to complete a UK passenger locator form, take any COVID-19 tests or quarantine when arriving in England.
Other countries do still have restrictions in place, though, and the UK government encourages those travelling abroad to 'check the testing and quarantine rules when you travel abroad from England'.
Those going to Italy must complete a passenger locator form, as well as showing either proof of vaccination, evidence of a negative PCR or a negative rapid lateral flow test, or a COVID-19 recovery certificate.
In Spain, travellers must prove they are either fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months.
