Transavia is selling cheap tickets for nonstop flights to six cities in Northern Africa (mostly Morocco). Monastir, Tunisia is the cheapest destination at €96. The cheapest fare including checked bag is usually €80 more expensive than the roundtrip fares. Availability is excellent from November 2022 through March 2023.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
You can reach the following airports nonstop for less than €120 roundtrip:
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Transavia with your preselected flight dates. You can also check what OTAs have to offer, as they sell these tickets up to €5 cheaper.
All flights are Boeing 737 services with a standard 3-3 seat alignment.
Search & Book
As with many other low-cost carriers deals, there are no fare rules that we could pass on to you. It’s a typical ‘first come – first serve’ deal, and as soon as all seats are gone, the deal will end. Availability is fairly good, as you can find multiple departures weekly (in some cases daily) at the lowest fare during the entire travel period.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
Transavia issues all tickets in booking class N. It won’t get you any miles in any program. By booking the basic fare including luggage, you can earn 16 XP on Air France and KLM’s Flying Blue.
