By Air 1- Budget Airlines aka “Low-Cost” Carriers
Budget flights like Ryanair or Easyjet provide a speedy way to travel through multiple locations in Europe. Some of the downside of budget airlines is that they may service smaller airports in remote locations and are more restrictive in their baggage allowance.
By Air 2 – Full-Service Airlines or Air Pass on Airline Alliances
The other option is to go on a full service airlines. This option may be more expensive but we need to weigh out on other factor – these airlines may service major airports near city centers may help cut traveling time and transfer costs to your destinations.
An airline alliance is a network of two or more airlines – Star Alliance, oneworld, and SkyTeam are examples of airline alliances. It is possible to get regional air passes on these networks. It may be possible to get a better priced offer by getting a regional air pass.
