Ryanair are now doing flights for a fiver one way - that's a tenner return, in case you were wondering.
As usual, many flights are not in the deal, they will come up at higher prices with taxes etc.
If you select the correct flights, there are no tax charges - you CAN buy a return fare for a tenner.
Choose your starting airport from a drop-down list "click here for more departing airports" - it then tells you which destinations are included.

A Full idiot's guide to booking with Ryanair and paying the minimum amount.
1. Only Book when they are advertising flights at a given full price, and only book these flights.
If your chosen flight comes up priced up full of taxes - it's not included in the deal - try another flight or time.
2. Get yourself a Visa Electron card / Post Office Travel Money Card / Entropay.
Co-op Bank / Halifax Bank bank and a few others do Visa Electron. Note that for the Post Office Travel Money Card and Entropay there is a fee for putting money onto it (so for best bargains get yourself an Visa Electron). My tip is to stick a couple of hundred quid (if you have spare) in the account / on the card, that way you don't have to load it up when a deal you're after comes along.
3. Do not take any "Hold Luggage"
You'll be surprised how much weight 10KG is. You can buy cheap suitcases that conform to Ryanair's size standard from a variety of places. Sports Direct (or whatever they're calling themselves this week) do one for about £8. In my experience, one of these jam-packed weighs around 9kg (unless you're taking lead weights for a diving holiday).
4. Check In Online for both legs of your journey before you go.
Print off the boarding pass (I print 2 in case the bar-code isn't read on one) and keep them safe.
5. Do not take out Ryanair's trave insurance.
When you get to the confirmation page, you click on the box that says "please select country of residence" and select "no travel insurance is required"
6. If you have an infant or push-chair then it's going to cost more. *may still be able to take infant / pushcahir for free according to subsequent posters (see later post)
This is just how Ryanair is, and they won't change it. It costs extra to take an infant, and to take a push-chair you have to check-in in person for which there is a charge (although the actual push-chair isn't charged as extra baggage)
7. If you don't want to pay silly money on the plane for a snack - eat beforehand, or take your own grub.
Often airport food is expensive. However, most flights are only 2 hours or so, so you should be able to manage from one meal to the next. You're adults - work it out.
Finally, if the cold voters can tell me where I can get a return flight round Europe, on a reliable airline that has outstanding punctuality for under a tenner, I'll vote this deal cold myself!!
#2
Or you could wait until the 1 penny flights are on offer again like they were last week. ( I booked 10 return flights for 6 people. Total cost £1.20 )
#3
There's always a chance of that, of course. The penny flights were a better deal, but that's gone for now, and not guaranteed to return. A tenner return isn't really to be sniffed at - 2p return was just the deal of the decade for flights.
#4
I need to take issue with point six m8-travelled ryanair to paris twice this year-one piece of infant equipment is carried free-even when you check in online -I can state from my experience that it costs nothing extra to take a pushchair.

I vote your deal hot btw

Try looking on the panel on the left. It says which airports (from drop-down menu) and where to.
#8
Halifax "EasyCash" savings account comes with an Electron card (no charges for online payment). Best to drop into a Halifax branch and pick up an application form, or apply online @ halifax.co.uk.
Takes about two weeks to set up and has no minimum opening payment.
#9
I got my Electron from the Co-Op Bank. Took 10 mins max on the phone.
Then I stuck a couple of hundred quid in the account so it's always there when I want to buy a flight.
#10
As an aside, I was looking at flights from Liverpool to Alicante in December. They aren't on the £5 list - probably because they're £25 ! - but that includes all taxes etc - worth having a mooch around if a destination you fancy isn't listed - £50 return to Spain for a few days of golf
appeals.

True - but with each offer you seem to get different destinations. For example Faro and Mallorca from Liverpool weren't on the 1p deal but they are on the £5 deal. On the 1p deal it was basically Ireland or Oslo. For £10 return I've got 2 weekends booked before Christmas... true they may be £1 or 1p next week but Mallorca doesn't come up that often on cheapo deals from Liverpool.
#12
This offer has been extended until 13/09/2009. Seems to be a few new destinations too.

True. Gran Canaria is now on the list from Liverpool - but there are NO flights at £5 from Liverpool as they claim. Either they made a mistake or they all went between midnight and now.

What's that got to do with the price of fish?

EDIT : Oh - I see. If you want an electron card then that is one way of getting one. But not quick enough to take andvantage of this offer. For that you would need to know someone who has a card, use Entropay or get a Post Office Travel Money card.

For completeness then :

http://www.postoffice.co.uk/portal/po/jump2?catId=19300207&mediaId=26800661

If you apply online it may take a week to get it. Better to go into a PO that does foreign exchange with a passport/proof of address and some money. Costs approx 1.5% loading fee.

I opened an Electron account with Entropay just for these Ryan Air deals. You pay a small percentage when you top up but it's peanuts really.

And it's instant too.

::edit:: Beaten to the punch by a FAR more informative post :)

As these flights have free online checkin, followed by Ryanair's "bag drop" facility, it is now possible to take a push-chair for free on their flights (previously you had to check-in in person, thus facilitating an extra charge)

Thanks

You can check-in online up to 14 days before the flight. So the best thing to do is to check-in for the outbound flight a day or 2 before you fly, and check-in for the return leg at the same time (provided you're not away for more than 2 weeks) - saves having to find a computer / printer whilst on yer hols. Have a good time in Milan !

If it's Bergamo you are flying to then there are Terravision buses which take you from the airport direct to Milan. As you are only staying 2 nights then you may even want to consider staying in Bergamo itself - more authentic and romantic than Milan. Could even do a day trip to Milan from there on your second day.

Check on here for a 10% off code for Hotels.com. Most of their booking have no cancellation fee for cancellations up to the day before you're due to arrive so apart fom paying up front you are not losing out on anything if you find a better deal in the meantime.
banned#24
Yea it is Bergamo, might do that, will ask my girlfriend what she would prefer to do when i tell her Saturday.

Aparantly buses run every 30mins from Bergamo -> Milan, takes about 1hour and costs under 10euros.

If anyone has ever stayed in Bergamo, then PM me and let me know how it went. Again rep & heat for the help.
#25
From Bergamo you could even go up to Lake Iseo for the day - suppose it depends on the weather. I'd look at the trains to Milan too if you stayed in Bergamo.

I remembered another site I used recently to find hotels....

http://www.hotelscombined.com/

It seems to check loads of different companies for hotels in the area you want. Was useful for me.

I was going to stay in Bergamo but my dad died when we were due to fly. I was going to stay in a B&B there as it was easier to get near the old part of the town that way.... so can't give you any advice from actual experience - I just did all the planning!

It looks like there might be an end to the default hold luggage + travel insurance charges:
Ryanair faces ban on luggage charge auto-opt-in [The Register UK]

Not that it will change much Ryanair's cowboy way of things but secretly I can't help rejoyce when somebody spoils their fun. Is it bad, doctor? :p

Doesn't that just mean that the tick won't be in the insurance and hold luggage by default?

So what's the big deal? Your savvy money-saver should be well aware of this. It's not like it's hidden away - you just tick the box you want.

I personally don't see a problem with RyanAir's pricing policy. You add on what you want. A person taking loads more baggage than someone else pays more. It's just they, along with EasyJet, challenged the 'norm' for air travel and as a result companies like BA are changing their way of flying.

Some info I just picked up on anews website. Thought it might come in handy.


Ryanair no longer accepts driver’s licenses as ID

In a move to try and reduce any confusion, Ryanair has issued a reminder that it will no longer accept any forms of identification from passengers who fly with the airline on domestic routes in the U.K. other than a passport or National Identity Card issued by the government. As of the 1st October 2009 passengers will no longer be able to produce their driver’s license as a form of identification when trying to board one of the budget airline’s aircraft.

There is no law at the present time that requires passengers to present passports or National ID cards as a form of identification when travelling on a domestic route, but Ryanair has introduced identification checks as part of its company policy.

In May this year Ryanair decided not to allow any of its passengers to check in on line using a drivers license as identification and as of October anyone without one of the two recognized forms of identification with them will be refused access to a domestic flight.

A spokesperson for the airline said that Ryanair felt they had to do something to tighten up the rules as it was seeing an increase in passengers in certain areas trying to travel without the proper identification. The spokesperson gave the example of Northern Ireland where people were trying to board ‘planes using their electoral register cards as their form of identification.

On 1st October the airline will also require all of its passengers to check themselves in over the internet. The idea behind the move is to cut down on queues and delays at the airport. All baggage that needs to be checked in will then be left at a drop off point by customers when they get to the airport.
