Pirates, fly direct between Edinburgh and London on the new Ryanair route for cheaper than taking the train!

With train prices on the rise and recent strikes, this new budget airline option is a great way to travel between the two. The flight time is just over an hour and prices start from £27* return. We checked similar timed train prices for the same dates and they were over £100.

There's lots of availability for June and Summer, December dates are a bit more expensive but last year we saw these from £19* return so it might be worth waiting.

The flight times mean you could even fly there and back in the same day to save on hotel costs.

Additional Information

*We might be Pirates, but we’re an honest bunch. We check all our deals when we review them to make sure everything is available. Here’s the catch: with deals this hot, things change quickly. Flight prices fluctuate, hotel rooms sell out, currencies yo-yo. Mainly, demand for the best deals means the lowest prices don’t last long. But, if you’ve missed out this time, don’t worry: we’re working on more great offers.
