Because in May you will find the most and cheapest flights to the south.


  • May is the best month to find the cheapest flights to the south.
  • Tours offer more security in the event of cancellation, but may be more expensive.
  • Charter airlines often sell available airline tickets at affordable prices.
  • It is important to check the accommodation before booking flights.
  • The most popular destinations in May are Cyprus, Mallorca, Crete and Rhodes.
  • The cheapest round-trip air tickets cost less than 1,000 NOK.
  • The cheapest charter flight is from Oslo to Alanya, Turkey, with a week's stay in a 3-star hotel for NOK 2,495 per person.

Many people like the security of purchasing an airline ticket and a hotel stay at the same time. A holiday package gives you extra security in case your trip is cancelled. Then you can also get a refund for the hotel.

Pack the trip yourself

Tourist warns: – The debate must be taken

If you plan to package the trip yourself, by purchasing separate plane tickets and separate hotels, it would be smart to make sure the hotel stay is refundable. The same applies to plane tickets. But then you have to expect the price to go up a little. So you're paying for a little extra freedom. For many, it is worth the money.

Remember, it is also considered an all-inclusive holiday if you book and pay for a flight and a rental car in the same process.

Package tours

May is the big start month for the biggest tour operators. This year's travel map is set with flights to most of the season's destinations over the next few weeks.

– During the month of May, we have launched all our summer charter destinations, and there is a wide range of different holidays. There are some departure airports where tickets are sold out in May, such as Alesund, Bodø, Evenes, Kristiansand and Tromsø. But if you fly from Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim or Oslo, there are still some flights left, says Marie-Anne Zachrisson, president of Ving Norge.

She continues:

– Most trips are to Cyprus, Mallorca, Crete and Rhodes in May. Then there are some smaller destinations that have almost full departures.

I would love to hear from you

Hello, my name is Odd Roar Lange and I am a travel expert and journalist for DinSide and Dagbladet. Do you have a holiday travel tip in May and want to tell your story on Norway's largest consumer website Or do you have an experience, question or clever suggestion that others should hear about?

– Most prices range from 4 to 5000 NOK per person for a week in the sun and heat. If you want to make a very good purchase, you can find hotels of a high standard at a discount. But now that we've sold out more than 90 percent of all May trips, the choice of hotels is much narrower, Zachrisson says.
