What better way to get into the festive spirit than to jet off to a European Christmas market?
There are a stockingful of seriously cheap flights available for the penultimate week of December and, from just £20 each, you could be sipping gluhwein and cosying up with your nearest and dearest under the twinkling lights of a tree in locations such as Luxembourg City, Barcelona or Brussels.
Liverpool to Barcelona is £28 return, Stansted to Luxembourg City is £26 and Brussels is only £20 from Manchester! And, if it's an authentic German market you're after, Manchester to Stuttgart is a mere £32.

The leaves are starting to fall and the mornings are getting darker. What better time to plan next year's summer adventure?
Grab your flights NOW before prices rise. You can deal with the finer details (such as accommodation and car hire) later but you need to secure the cheap airline tickets before the end of the September if you're wanting a bargain break.
We've just booked our flights. Two weeks in Northern Spain next August for £55 each with British Airways. That £55 includes taxes AND luggage! So, for just over £200, we've got a holiday in the making. With glorious beaches and rugged coastline, this region of Spain promises not to disappoint.
Don't fancy Spain? There is a world of bargains waiting to be grabbed.
Next July and August there are some fantastic flights currently available.
In the region of £40 for a return flight are Denmark, Sweden and Germany.
£50 will get you to Spain, Poland and Czech Republic. And, for just £60, you can jet off to France or Norway.
Reasonably-priced flights, combined with self-catering accommodation and car hire, means that a fortnight's tailor-made European holiday for a family of four, can come in at under £2000, including spending money.
Finding these flights is easy! Using www.skyscanner.com, search UK to EVERYWHERE for the WHOLE MONTH of August. This will give you an overview of available destinations and a quick tweak of dates and airports will get you up and away next summer.
