Cheap summer flights are still available for Ibiza, but book soon!

In past years I have sometimes paid a fortune for London to Ibiza flights by forgetting to book until a few weeks before departure. So this year I decided to do things differently by booking in January for the year ahead. 

Luckily, British Airways has flown all winter from London City airport. The other airlines serving Ibiza from the UK - Monarch, Thomson, Ryanair, Easyjet - all get started around Easter time.

I notice that BA are now serving Ibiza from Heathrow, which will be great for people living in West London. I think this shows how the demographic of visitors to Ibiza is shifting with more middle class people choosing the island for holidays which combine clubs, beaches and touring the countryside. The roads certainly seemed busier as we cycled around last summer.

If you use Martin's MoneySaver flight checker (old version) you can ask it to show cheap flights for the whole year. It is still possible to find return flights to Ibiza for under £100 during the summer months. Combine this with a stay at our apartment and you will have a competitively-priced holiday!

We are going to stay in February to check the apartment is looking good, and then returning for Easter in April and then in May with friends for the Ibiza Medieval Fair which is very atmospheric. Finally, we plan a trip in August to get a taste of the full summer experience.
