Absolutely hate Ryanair and would never use them as we have a baby and they charge through the roof for a baby! However if you can travel with just hand baggage, and use the various methods to avoid the surcharges etc then you can get the cheap flights and £1 a flight is fantastic.

So, sadly, heat added! lol
#2
how much to come back?
#3
I got so fed up with all their surcharges and then the final insult of having to pay £40 just for paying (whatever method I used) I cancelled and went easyjet.

A sneaky promotion to make you think you can get a return flight for £2. Normally your outbound flight is cheap (in our case only £10 each) but then to come home it was £50 each. Good if you are flexible with dates and only have hand luggage. Extortionate charge for payment and hold luggage. Hot if you can make it work for you.

Well including tax and 'fee's' for 2 x adults and 2 x children our return price was £300. Mmmmmmm? Not so hot then!

Fee is what? What belongs to the fee?

At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself if 4 return flights for a total of £300 is a good deal. Many would say "yes".

How do you cancel. Could I get a refund for a booking made? I was charged too.

Voting hot on Ryanair deals as always,

You wont get back any credit card fees etc. I think you can claim back some or all of the taxes if any were paid but thats about it.
#10
trigger_andy, your tickets will not have been ones that were included in this sale then. The £1 tickets (just found one to dublin from gatwick on the 24th of feb) include taxes and fees, but not the handling charge.
So unless you've got a visa electron, that makes it £6/person, assuming that person can check in online, doesn't want insurance, has a passport or ID to travel, doesn't have luggage and knows at least 3 of the world's 6 most secret handshakes.
Incidentally, these appear to be being applied Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday outside of school holidays.

Once again the conversation we have every time a ryan air deal is posted THIS INCLUDES TAXES. Want an example?

NO TAXES Adult
1.00 GBP
Wed, 25 Feb 09
FlightFR 9319 06:30 Depart
09:50 Arrive

NO TAXES Adult
1.00 GBP
Wed, 4 Mar 09
FlightFR 9318 10:15 Depart
11:35 Arrive

There you go, try that flight yourself. 1 week in stockholm for £2 both ways. If you take no insurance, hand luggage and check in online then that leaves just the card charges which are £5 each way. Admittedly this is annoying but you can avoid these by getting a visa electron or if you are in a hurry using the method below to get the flights for about £17

I'm writing this in a bar in Girona, after getting flights during their last £1 promotion. Ok it came to £20 return after card fees but I'm not complaining. The trick is to bring handluggage only. Not as hard as you might think.

I'll be booking again if this offer is still on when I get home tomorrow.

PS Girona is beautiful!
#14
Is this "one-way" sale something to do with their habit of getting you out there and then cancelling the flight back so you have to pay £500 for the next flight? :p
#15
Ryanair's charges are ridiculous, you get charged a fee just for paying them, and if you're going for any length of time you ned to put baggage in the hold, which costs an additional £30 per bag. So, if you're going for a short break where you can take hand baggage only, and are paying by Visa Electron, this is a good deal. If not, it's extremely mis-leading and therefore freezing cold (I'm not voting either way).

sorry, cancelled before submitting payment when it asked me for the forty quid. at least easyjet are more up front with the final cost.

#17
So are Ryanair, they tell you the price before you book it - not so hard..

Just get a VISA Electron if you want the flights reallllly cheap.
#18
i used to fly with easyjet
but how could you beat £2 return
belfast to lpool
pay with visa elecrtron
no charges im loving it !!!
#19
is there anyway to quickly get a visa electron asap?
#20
I have a normal Visa Debit card (the one that comes with a Barclays current account, no mention of electron on it). I have just booked 2 return tickets to Dublin for a total of £4. Do they charge the £40 for using a debit card at the time of booking. If so, I wasn't charged the fee.

Voted hot.

EDIT: I have just checked my email confirmation and I have in fact been charged £20 for using a debit card! Never mind, still cheap at £12 each for return flights to Dublin.

Post Office -Travel Card - take your passport or DVLC when applying and charging with a minimum of £50 plus £3.50 commission....then you have to wait until the next day to activate.
#22
I use them loads to travel to london and back, I can get the cheapest flights as i don't have set dates to come back, i just come and go when i feel like it, the only thing that p*ss me of on these cheap flights, is the hold baggage cost more to take than it costs me to go :o
#23
Fewer destinations in their promotions now. I got some good deals last year (hand luggage + Visa electron card) but now they are just putting fewer and fewer destinations
#24
Its very simple,only take hand luggage .no priority loading and use a electron card for payment.Just back from Genoa cost £8.00 for 4 rtn.Also book a hire car through them and get a discount.Remember what would you expect for £8.00........................Hot

Not really that simple - and designed to trip you up. It's not easy nor expected to make do with hand luggage when travelling abroad for more than a day, nor is it expected to have to make payment by some obscure method most people are unable to use. Think about it: applying for a special payment card just for Ryanair...

In the time it takes you to think about it most people could have filled in the application form and got their card. What people are unable to use an Electron?

[COLOR=Red][SIZE=5]*TIP*:- [/SIZE][/COLOR]to achieve the cheapest flight, you need to make sure:-

You select 0 bags & online check in
You pay via Visa Electron
You do have valid Photo ID for your flight (standard stuff)
You do not want to be one of the first people to board the plane (ie you do NOT want priority boarding)
And you do not want travel insurance. It initially displays “United Kingdom”. Click on it, and scroll upwards to find “No travel insurance required”.

Hardly! :)
What people are unable to use an Electron?
Very few - because I believe they are the lowest common denominator, offering the fewest facilities. And that is why many people don't have them.

seems like thye do this offer forever!!!!!!!! u could never find a good destination and times are so restricted when u go for the cheap deals! cant be bothered!
#31

no more than a DAY?? What the hell do you carry round with you? You can take a 10k bag! There are plenty of small suitcases you can buy that will be allowed on the plane. My girlfriend manages fine for a week and she's a girl and everything.

Thanks for that - didn't realise it was 10kg (although if they still limit the dimensions to that of most airlines then you might only be able to get 10kg of lead in it :)).

Well they do have a size thing your bag is supposed to fit in but I have flown with them maybe 20 times and no-one has ever checked. I usually take a standard size rucksack and my girlfriend takes a small suitcase. As long as you can carry it and put it in the overhead compartment without attracting attention you should be fine.
#38
I wish easyjet would have more of these types of sales, as Ryanair don't fly to Geneva!

I tried to book a weekend away last night, and found out that if you have no hold baggage, but inconvenience Ryanair by checking in at the airport, you get charged an additional £10. Absolute disgrace.
