The main two airlines that provide cheap flights to Valencia are Ryanair and easyJet. There are others such as British Airlines and Iberia, although they tend to be with connecting flights. Deciding which airline is best for you usually comes down to the price of the flight tickets, although both are budget airlines, so there won’t be too much variation in the costs. One thing to be aware of it that they tend to charge a premium for checked-in baggage and any additional extras, especially during the summer, so bear this in mind when you’re booking or searching for cheap flights to Valencia.
The easiest way to get to the centre is to jump on the underground. There are trains that operate very regularly from the airport and go directly to different parts of the city, so you can get off where it’s convenient for you. If you are taking the metro, you’ll want either lines 3 or 5. A cheaper option would be to take the Aero-Bus which operates from 6am until 10pm, with buses every 20 minutes. Again, that has several stops along the way so you can decide where is best for you to get off. Another bus is line 150. This goes to the centre and is even cheaper than the Aero-Bus, however the timetable isn’t as frequent. Lastly, you can get a taxi to the centre but make sure to agree on the fare before you get in. It’s also worth travelling with friends if you can, so you can split the cost and save some money.
