Ryan Air flights

Hello, just after some advice really. Last year we flew for the first time ever and went from Bristol Airport to Girona Barcelona, flew out on 28th August and came home on 7th September (day before school started). I booked the flights on the 10th August and got them incredibly cheap - about £38 return each - 2 adults and 3 children.

I've been keeping a watch on the flight prices this year - same airports but for about the past ten days or so, the prices have been going up and up - all dates in August. Feel I might have lost out on cheap flights this year, as a couple of weeks ago they were down to around £25.99 and £38.99, now they are over a £100 each for a return flight. Does anybody know, who perhaps takes flights each summer with Ryan Air, if the prices will start to drop again in August. As we have only flown once with them, I don't have the experience of knowing if they do drop them again in a couple of weeks time? Any advice most appreciated, thank you.

The closer you get to the departure date the more expensive the flights get in general. I have flown a lot but not much with Ryanair so can't say if they are the exception but the industry on the whole usually does cheaper flights in advance with say tickets bought on the day being extortionate at time capitalising on peoples need to get somewhere at short notice. It may be worth checking skyscanner or something like that because there are other airlines that do similar priced flights.

Buy early and buy cheap, they seem to have set numbers of cheap tickets and as they sell the next price range are released until finally they are maximum price. When you see e.g. "Four tickets left at this price" that is what it means.

with ryanair its best to buy at a price you are happy to pay,they operate a system that will vary the price according to demand,so if someone buys a flight it will go up in price,then if there is no activity it will reduce in price.
Also before you go on their site clear your cookies.I fly often with ryanair and have found that it is nearly impossible to predict prices,hence buy at a price you are happy to pay!

I've read a bit about the cookies thing - that they know when you are looking at the site and put prices up to reflect this! However, I cleared my cookies earlier and have now looked, and the prices are the same as before, so don't really know if this is true about the cookies? Thank you.

It's supply versus demand. Easyjet do the same. Nothing you can do I'm affraid apart from what has been said above, buy at a price you are happy to pay.
