Cycling Holidays: Low cost airlines & air travel destinations

The pandemic might have halted international travel for millions, including for ourselves in the travel and tourism business, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start to look towards the future and a brighter tomorrow! Especially considering the huge advancements that have been made in the fight against COVID thanks to new vaccines.

As the UK and the rest of the world slowly begin to emerge on the other side of the pandemic, we here at Freewheel can’t wait to see our customers enjoying the very best cycling holiday experiences money can buy!

But when it comes to air travel, depending on your specific holiday, what’s your best option? Where should you land? Who should you fly with? There are so many variables to consider! 

With that in mind, here are just a few of our personal favorite cycling holiday destinations, your ideal airport to arrive at, and which airline could take you to your dream cycling holiday destination!

Austrian Lakes | Destination - Salzburg Airport | Possible Airline - EasyJet

Our Austrian Lakes cycling holiday truly is one of the most scenic cycling holidays you’ll find anywhere, especially for those of you with a taste for glistening lakes and towering mountain peaks!

Named after the iconic classical musician, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Salzburg Airport serves as the ideal landing ground for those seeking a traditional Austrian Skiing holiday in the local area. But it also acts as the perfect starting point to take you to the exceptional locations that make up our Austrian Lakes cycling tour!

EasyJet, one of the UK’s most cost-efficient airlines, currently advertises flights to Salzburg Airport running from major airports in Bristol, Liverpool, and London, giving you plenty of options to reach your next Austrian Cycling Holiday.

Leisurely Loire Valley | Destination - Charles De Gaulle Airport | Possible Airline - EasyJet

Our Leisurely Loire Valley cycling holiday is perfect for those looking to soak up the beautiful, natural views the French countryside has to offer, on a relaxing tour suitable for cyclists of all experience levels.

Keeping your cycling distance under 60km per day, this tour will treat you to some stunning, traditional French villages, as well as magnificent castles - many of which have been preserved and protected to a level of eye-popping beauty.

You’ll be able to land at Charles De Gaulle Airport - named after the army officer who helped lead the resistance against the Nazis in France during World War Two. A few miles outside of Paris, there’s just a short drive to get you to your starting point of Orleans, before you set off on your French cycling adventure. 

Once again, EasyJet lists Charles De Gaulle as one of their landing destinations at affordable prices. So be sure to check them out when booking your flights!
