“Free” flights from the UK to Ireland – September to November 2014

Aer Lingus is currently running a sale from the UK to Ireland, offering extremely cheap flights from a number of UK to a number of Irish airports. In a number of cases, it is actually keeping costs to a bare minimum by charging nothing for the flight fare.

The sting in the tail here, of course (and I must apologise for my slightly sensationalist headline), is that you still need to pay the taxes and fees.

However, with taxes as low as £12.99 each way, this still leaves you with a number of budget options. Factoring in the £14 admin fee, the lowest return flights we could find, with the “free” base fare, were £39.98. 

For example, there are currently a number of £39.98 return fares between Birmingham and Dublin:

Slightly oddly, given that the fare is often nothing, Aer Lingus seem to be marketing this promotion as “25% off your fare”. While they seem to be doing themselves a disservice with this description, it does appear that where you are charged for the fare itself, you will get 25% off that.

You need to book your flights by 4 August, and fly between September and November 2014.
