Get Away From The Stress Of Black Friday This Christmas Period With Bravofly

London, UK.Low-cost flight comparison website Bravofly offer affordable winter shopping trips this Christmas for those looking to get away from the stresses of Black Friday and holiday retail.

Whilst the Christmas period gives people the opportunity to take a much needed break from work, the holiday season can quite often become a stressful time for many.

Buying presents, ordering the turkey, shopping for the family and getting everything ready for the 25th can be a nightmare. But Christmas shopping needn’t be a traumatic experience.

Instead of spending your weekends braving shopping centres and supermarkets on Black Friday (the infamous sale-day after US thanksgiving) this year, online travel website Bravofly are offering low-cost flights so you can do your shopping in some of Europe’s most inviting Christmas markets.

A Bravofly spokesman said: “Whilst many do not like to travel around the Christmas period, Bravofly suggest that those who have previously spent Black Friday – one of the biggest retail days of the year - endlessly spending, consider experiencing the festivities and joys of shopping in some of Europe’s top Christmas markets.

“From the 14th century markets of Marienplatz in the heart of Munich, Germany, to the beautiful shops and stalls of the Soleils d’Hiver (Winter Suns) festival in Angers, France, there are hundreds of European Christmas markets just waiting to be discovered.”

So, whether you’re looking to grab some Glühwein in Innsbruck, bag some Glögg in Stockholm, or stock up on Lebkuchen in Hamburg, it seems European winter city-breaks are the perfect alternative to the hustle and bustle of the Christmas madness back home. 

The spokesman continued: “And with low-cost flights to a wide variety of countries and destinations this Christmas, there’s no excuse to be stuck at the checkout this Black Friday.”

With return flights to European cities and winter destinations starting at just £44, Bravofly can help you to organise the perfect winter break without burning a hole in your pocket.
