Cheap Airlines: Use Skyscanner to find them

To find cheap holidays to Gran Canaria, the best website for flights is Skyscanner. It compares all the airlines, including low cost ones like Ryanair and Easyjet, and even combines two different ones to get you the best deal.  It is definitely recommended to give it a try. Click here to go to the Skyscanner page (opens in a new window).

For example, we entered the dates November 29th to December 6th for a flight from London to Gran Canaria. Skyscanner returns a combination of Ryanair + easyJet for just 77 euros return (66 pounds), which is a real bargain.

This website lets you create an alert, so that if the price varies, the system sends you an e-mail automatically.

This is another great website to look for hotels in Gran Canaria. This company belongs to the Tui group. You can find great deals here, like apartments in Maspalomas, for 17 Pounds (21 Euros) per night for October.

Search for hotels in the Canary Islands with Hotelopia – This website will help you find deals in tickets, hotels, car rentals. – This UK website lets you find all the airline tickets, including low cost airlines, as well as hotels. I really like this website because, unlike the Ryanair website, you don’t have to be putting those annoying Captcha codes each time you have to do a new search. You will also get an online booking discount every time you make a purchase.

There is a trick that can be used to plan your cheap holidays to Gran Canaria. If you don't mind stopping at Barcelona El Prat airport for a few hours, you can get even better deals on tickets. You will have to book separately because most online travel agencies rarely use this city as a hub. From London to Barcelona you can use low cost airlines like Ryanair or Easyjet. From Barcelona to Gran Canaria, you can use Ryanair or the Spanish airline Vueling, which every now and then offers tickets starting out at 39 Euros each way. The most important thing to do while booking via Barcelona, is to make sure there is enough time to switch flights.

We hope all this information helps you plan your cheap holidays to Gran Canaria. If you need help to calculate the cheapest deal, just fill in this handy form, with departure city, when you want to come, and how much is your budget.
