Budget airlines cut flights

Holidaymakers may have to step up their search for cheaper travel insurance if they want to cut the costs of their holiday, following the news that many airlines are cutting the number of flights they are running.

With flight numbers beginning to drop, the number of cheap deals will also significantly reduce, adding to the overall cost of a holiday.

The rising cost of oil is causing many airlines to reduce the number of flights they run, with budget airline easyJet the latest to cut flights.

And the news comes only weeks after Ryanair announced that it was cancelling 250 of its winter flights.
