Cheap Flights to Tallinn - Consumer Insight
Tallin has quickly become one of Europe’s most talked about city break destinations and British holidaymakers are flocking there in droves. The Estonian capital has plenty to offer, but for many the city’s main selling point is its lively nightlife. Tallinn has become a regular fixture on the stag weekend circuit, but there’s much more to this medieval showpiece city than first meets the eye.
Tallinn’s reputation as a Baltic party zone has helped to fuel the demand for cheap flights and competition between airlines is becoming increasingly fierce. However, the city has yet to make its mark on the no-frills airline map, although it’s only a matter of time before one of the budget dot coms snaps up the route.
There are plenty of scheduled airlines serving Tallinn and if you spend some time shopping around you should be able to get a reasonable deal. Fares can be cut further still if you’re prepared to stopover and change aircraft en route. If you’re on a tight budget you’ll find that the cheapest seats depart at the least social hours and you’ll have to forget any plans to travel on a Friday or Sunday.
Estonian Airlines flies from Gatwick every day and is one of the cheapest carriers. However, you shouldn’t expect to get much change from £150 for a return flight and supplemental taxes usually push the figure higher still.
The Internet still throws up the odd bargain so it’s worth having a look around to see what you can find. The Web may have changed the face of travel, but the majority of holidays are still booked through high street travel agents. If you still haven’t landed that elusive flight bargain spend a Sunday morning leafing through the back pages of the travel supplements.
A final option is to book a cheap no-frills flight to Helsinki (Finland’s capital), from where it’s a two hour boat trip to Tallinn. In the peak summer months ferries depart every hour and cost a fraction of making the journey by air.
