(Please note that these low cost airlines very often rely on local government subsidies and they come and go as they please accordingly)

These are all direct flights, there are other combinations if you are prepared to change in Barcelona. Alternatively, Iberia and BA might also fly, but we haven’t used them.

Brittany Ferries sails to Santander and Bilbao (we prefer Santander) from Portsmouth and Plymouth. We are members of Club voyage and we can get discounts for friends and family. This route, taking your own car, can sometimes work out cheaper than flying and hiring a car, specially if you go for more than a week off high season.
