easyJet is offering big savings on some of its flights
Low-cost airline easyJet is slashing the price of half a million seats to celebrate its 20th birthday.
Holidaymakers can get up to 20% off scores of flights to and from the UK between February and July next year.
European cities like Geneva and Alicante are among the discounted destinations, plus far-flung places like Marrakech in Morocco.
UK airports including Bristol, Newcastle and Manchester are also involved.
Peter Duffy, easyJet's commercial director, says the carrier has challenged the high price monopolies of the legacy airlines and enabled a new generation of people of all ages, incomes and interests to travel.
He claims fares to Scotland have actually fallen over the past 20 years, rather than becoming more expensive.
Travellers can now fly to the country from £27.49, compared to £29 in 1995. Mr Duffy adds fares in the birthday sale will be even lower, so is encouraging anyone and everyone to pack their bags and get exploring.
Wherever people choose to go, travel insurance is a must. It provides cover should something go wrong - for example, lost luggage is a nightmare while treatment for injuries abroad can be very expensive.
A European Health Insurance Card is not a substitute for travel insurance, even though it gives access to emergency state medical care across most of Europe.
Skiers are expected to be among those taking advantage of the cheap flights to Geneva, while sun seekers will be attracted by the warm temperatures, white-sand beaches and blue waters of Alicante.
The savings are available on flight bookings made between now and midnight on January 13, for travel from February 4 to July 6.
The airline flies over 240 aircraft on more than 800 routes to over 130 airports worldwide at present.
