Desperately seeking flights from UK out of season!

In the process of buying a house in Koskinnou. Slight problem - no direct flights out of season. Been checking routes with transfers - I can either do a trip of 17 hours via various bits of europe (£500 ish), or 1 change for the sum of £1,750 per person. Help! What's the cheapest and quickest way of getting from UK to Rhodes and back in December?

I can't even get to Athens!!!!

Just to add to the above post.

If you're flexible with your December dates, there are direct flights from Heathrow to Athens (return) with BA and Aegean for less than £200; with Aegean and Olympic flying Athens to Rhodes for €150 to €170 return.

Obviously you have to juggle times and dates.

Further north there are flights from Birmingham to Athens , with a change at Amsterdam or Paris, for around £200 (return) . Check the KLM website.

Hope this helps.

Easyjet to Athens then Aegean or Olympic to Rhodes.

We have done it several times and are returning to UK that way in a month for less than 100 pounds each.

Just got to look at their own websites and pick the cheapest. However as said it is easier if you are flexible and don't have work constraints.

You can book return flights with Aegean to Rhodes in December (if as said above you are flexible on dates) for under £250.00. Change of flight in Athens.

I would have thought London is the best airport to fly to Europe cheap. Have you checked with easyjet flights to Athens in December, they advertise 35 and 46 Sterling Pounds (coming and going) fares at the moment.

have a look at airtickets.gr site for flights to Rhodes.
