With exactly a month to go before Cupid fires his arrows, it’s about time we started thinking about Valentine’s Day. We’ve scoured the Internet for flights departing from all over the U.K. for less than £50 to give the wallet a break after Christmas and New Year.

We’ve tried to cover all bases with the destinations — from the classic city of romance and love, Venice, to off-the-beaten track Bilbao in Spain, there should hopefully be somewhere that you and a loved one can escape to for a romantic Valentine’s weekend.

Remember, Ryanair and EasyJet’s lowest fares don’t include a checked bag. But, if you’re clever with your packing, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Don’t forget that flying low-cost doesn’t mean you have to have a low-cost experience. Check out our guide on how to upgrade your low-cost experience.
