This is just a theory I have. My brother used to live in Barbados and when people used to visit him, he used to book the flights from there as it was much cheaper. I have also heard that some of these airline sites check where the enquiry is coming from by ip address, so they can tell what country the enquiry originated from. From a UK ip address, the trip to Almeria with Jet2 on October 23rd is £4.99, but they get you by the short and curlies on the return which is £99 and £119 respectively. We only want to go out to set things up after completing and there are no more flights from Leeds to Almeria until 2008!!! Although they will still fly into Murcia.

I am just interested if someone from outside of the UK could check and see what the prices are for me please?

Thanks

Mark

You don't state what the return date is.  I have checked from here in Spain and a flight from Almeria to Leeds is:

23 Oct - 74 Euros
25 Oct - 89 Euros

There are pre tax prices.

Hope that helps.

Justin

That was the return flight Justin, it is only £4.99 to fly out. Your reply pretty much confirms it then! The flight on the 25th is about £10 cheaper than booking it here (I used 1.46 as an exchange rate).

The flights might be coming out more expensive at that time because its October half term in the UK. I know Jet2 haven't yet released winter flights from Leeds to Almeria but Monarch have from Manchester to Almeria if that's any good for you.

Does anyone know of a site to book return flights from Malaga cheaper. i have only been able to find the cheaper return flights as part of a return package. But when I try to book the one way flight it will not allow me book it.

Janmet,  you don't say where and when you are flying to in UK.  BMIBaby has flights to Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff and East Midlands.  If you click on one way, it will give you a flight one way.  The cost for a single Malaga/Manchester in November is €23.09.  If you pick a european airport to fly from, it gives you the price in euros.

Any help??

Easyjet does it for around €90 so not exactly cheap, I'm afraid.
