The most romantic day of the year is approaching, and while some enjoy the celebration others recoil at the thought of a day to celebrate romance.

For those not in relationships, Ryanair wants to spread the love.

Introducing the Valentine’s seat sale, the airline hopes to encourage proud singletons to enjoy a break alone.

With fares from just £16.99, solo travellers can treat themselves to a break in one of the many European destinations Ryanair serves. Who needs Roses when you could be living it up in some winter sun?

Whether you fancy a trip to the ‘city of love and romance’ to gaze upon the beauty of the Eiffel Tower or a weekend of culture, art and architecture in Vienna, Ryanair’s Valentine’s seat sale will bring you wherever your heart desires.

To help twist your arm on solo travel even more, Ryanair has listed what it believes to be the best parts of travelling alone:

  1. “Zero compromising when choosing a destination – you have all the decision making power
  2. Treat yourself to a window seat on the plane AND book the middle seat - we all need our space
  3. Airport time is your time – browse, dine and shop with no judgement on your questionable duty-free purchases
  4. Imagine travelling with someone that STILL doesn’t understand the liquids / hand luggage rules – immediate ‘ick’!
  5. Realising your certain someone claps when the plane lands – MORE ‘ick’!
  6. ‘Czech out’ your favourite European city your way, on your terms. We see you, Prague.
  7. No heated arguments, just the heat of some much deserved winter sun on your face
  8. Zero judgement at the breakfast buffet – you can even make a trip for seconds (and thirds!)
  9. Potential for a holiday romance – there is no excitement like a holiday fling
  10. Did we mention fares to the likes of Copenhagen, Rome and Lisbon are available from only £16.99 for travel until 26th March when you book by 16th February?”


A spokesperson for Ryanair said: “Roses are red, adventure is great, you should try flying solo – you don’t need a date! We’re calling on all proud singletons to take the plunge (not THAT plunge) and book a trip ‘from me to me’ this Valentine’s and enjoy the ride (of a Ryanair flight).

Fares are available from just £16.99 for travel until March 26 when you book by February 16.
