Stuck For Time? Book Your September Weekend Getaway From A Small UK Airport

Whether you're after a relaxing weekend with sea and sand or want to explore somewhere new, these European weekend getaways have you covered.

Small airports have many advantages: shorter queues, speedy security checks and hardly any people. However, they often get overlooked for airports such as Heathrow, Luton or Stansted in a bid to find the cheapest price. But, isn’t it worth spending a bit more to be stress free, closer to the airport and have more time? We think so and have found the best deals for your September weekend getaway.
