Search & Book

The fare rules don’t offer any restrictions like a travel or sales period. A minimum stay of five days is necessary to get the lowest fare. According to Google Flights (instructions), flights from Luxembourg are primarily available in early 2025. You can find much better availability from Paris and almost daily departures at the lowest fare from Lisbon or Porto.

We recommend looking for suiting flight dates with our calendar above and proceeding to flytap.com directly, even though Skyscanner offers cheaper tickets.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Mileage

The tickets are issued in booking class O, meaning that a Luxembourg – Madeira roundtrip should roughly get you:

  • 500 Award Miles + 80 Points on Miles&More
  • 332 Miles on Turkish Airlines Miles&Smiles
  • 332 Award Miles on Emirates Skywards
  • 332 Miles on Air Canada Aeroplan
  • 332 Miles on Egyptair Plus
  • 268 Miles on Hainan Fortune Wings Club
  • 166 Miles on Azul TodoAzul

Destination

Hotel prices in Madeira usually start at roughly €40-50, depending on the hotel category and specific dates. Whichever category and hotel you opt for, make sure to get the best price! Our recommendation is to search on booking.com, or even on our own Travel-Dealz hotel search:

The island’s capital Funchal is famous for its steep hills and streets, while the island is best known for the fortified wine namend after it.

Similiar to the Canary Islands, Madeira enjoys a mild climate all year round. Average temperatures never climb above 25 degrees or fall below 15 degrees. While November through February is more rainy than other times of the year, precipation is still much lower than on mainland Europe. If you want to go swimming, water temperatures are highest from May to September.

From the Airport to the City

Madeira’s Cristiano Ronaldo Int’l Airport is located in Funchal and served by a huge number of leisure airlines from all over Europe.
