Skyscanner reveals the best value destinations for 2020


One of the best things about living in the UK is being able to pop to another country for the weekend.  

Fancy a French baguette? Hop on the Eurostar. Need some winter sun? A weekend in Seville is just a flight away.

And weekend getaways don’t need to be costly – which is why Skyscanner has revealed its most affordable destinations for 2020.

Sam Ayles from the flight booking app says: “When looking back over our data we found a number of cities which are seeing phenomenal price drops, with Bratislava leading the way with a staggering 71 per cent drop in average flight prices, that’s a saving of over £1,200 for a family of four.”
