It's so hot here in England that you might as well stay put, as the hassle of the budget airline getaway is not always worth the flight...

Budget airlines have changed the world. How else could we get a 3.42am flight to Bratislava for £17.99? And it’s not just the exotic destinations it has unlocked, it’s the whole experience of no-frills flying. It’s the adventure of on-line booking, dodging those tick boxes and hidden charges like Indiana Jones in a cave system. It’s the challenge of cramming two-weeks’ worth of clobber into a bag the size of a cereal box. It’s the pioneering spirit of travelling on a plane where the seats and toilets are treated as guilty pleasures. It’s the moorish indulgence of paying £7.50 for a packet of crisps and bottle of water.

And then when you finally arrive, you find that you’re not actually in Bratislava - but a small airfield on the ‘outskirts’. No problem, it’s just a short hop away, about five-hours in a bus.
