only a handful of destinations available at this price, but if that works for you and are happy with the baggage allowance, extra charges, location of airports etc then good. Not voted
#2
thanks

voted cold, only because I've booked flights under two of these 1p deal recently and both sets of flights have been canceled at very short notice.

If Ryanair cant make money on these sorts of deal then they shouldn't offer them.
#3
cold because they are a bunch of c**ts!

says october to december but there's nothing beyond 28th October for the destinations I wanted :(
was the same for the last 1p offer

I hate this company,the worst so called cheap flight airline of the lot.On the surface it always looks like a good deal and cheap.Be prepaired to fly out in your underpants and do not attempt to bring any luggage back with you otherwise it will be more ecconomical to charter your own plane.
Can't wait till sleaze jet gives it some competition.

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 a push-chair then as long as you check-in online, it goes for free.
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.
8. You cannot take large amounts of liquids onto planes, so what can I do about toiletries?
Generally 100ml is the maximum size of a liquid container you can take onto any plane in hand luggage. This does not mean you have to take a suitcase in the hold for toiletries. Personally I use small containers (of the size and type one might find if one stays in a hotel - ahem) and fill them up before each holiday with shampoo / conditioner etc. Alternatively, you can always stock up once you're through security, but that seems expensive and wasteful. Likewise - if you want to take drinks with you, take an empty bottle, and fill it once you're through security (most airports do have drinks fountains).
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 2p, I'll vote this deal cold myself!!

Ok so I'm an idiot! Quite happy to be one.
Is there an idiots guide to Ryanair? If not, why not? I wish I had read it before I did my first flight with them.
MSE is the best place i have found for tips on the way to avoiding all the bitty little charges!

And that's a reason for a cold vote? So if someone puts up a deal for a DVD, do you vote cold 'cos it's not the DVD you're looking for?
Fortunately you only get to reduce the heat by 1 degree. Perhaps if you gave more to the site, you opinion would count a little more.

used them loadsa times with no problem--"more economical to charter your own plane??" if,on top of the cabin baggage allowance,you want to take a suitcase,its TEN QUID-where exactly can you charter a plane for that?

fed up with people slating ryanair deals-get an electron card and be flexible with dates and destinations and you can get some great weekends away.
#17
I've said it before and I'll say it again, how you vote on Ryanair deals are a fantastic barometer for how thick you are! :-D

Ofcourse they don't have flights from ALL airports on ALL days at ALL times for 1p.
However, if you can be a bit flexible, open-minded and use a modicum of intelligence, it is possible to bag an absolute bargain. An example:

Bournemouth to Pisa 14 Oct 12:10pm = 1p
Pisa to Bournemouth 21 Oct 10:35am = 1p

Good flight times to a beautiful part of the world ( Tuscany that is, Pisa is a one trick pony! :whistling: )

I know this because I did it before, paid with a Mint Gift card, took 10kg hand luggage each, checked in online and 3 of us got returns for 6p!!!

When this offer was on a few days ago it reached about 1000 degrees.

I'm afraid its cold from me, i'd happily fly for 3p (for me, my partner and baby) but oh wait our flights are 1p, but they charge £20 each way for an infant when she's going to sit on my knee anyway - disgusting. Why can't i pay 1p for an infant too?
#20
Damn Ryanair, i have no more holidays left from work or i would be booking something AGAIN. I am off to Dublin again for 2p in the October half term, also went to Dublin last year for 2p and booked Bratislava for £2.

Robbing swines :-)

you can't take any bottle larger than 100ml through security- even if empty...

Strange yes that they charge more for an infant, but the 3 of you can still fly for £20.02p and you vote cold, find a cheaper deal and post away please

Yes but its not 1p then is it? I'm not saying i can find a better deal but i'm not going to vote hot for 1p flights when my infant costs £20 each way and doesn't even take up a seat.

wonder how they can afford to do it
#26
deals can be good....but the company and crew are rubbish. I have 2 babies and they never helped me!!!!! they DO NOT care!!
had few problems and always find an excuse not to refund therefore I dont take their inssurance anymore and just got our own travel inssurance with our bank.

I have no choice but to use them to go to the south of France.........
ryanair c'est de la merde!!!!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, how you vote on Ryanair deals are a fantastic barometer for how thick you are!


I voted cold because because I perceive these 1p deals to be high risk.

Ryanair tends to limit these offers to flight legs which are mostly undersold.

In the current climate these undersold legs are at high risk of cancellation or amendment at short notice. It is my perception that RA are worse than any other carrier since their customer loyalty sucks. And thin margins only increases the pressure to do this.

( i've booked 2 sets of these 1p routes, to different destinations, in the last 6 months. Both routes were either significantly amended departure wise or cancelled).

Consider: 1p flights are a false economy since you need to pay a higher price for flexible/cancellable hotels/trains etc, or buy more expensive travel insurance which refunds all costs in the event of flight cancellation.


Thick? No... just smarter than you.

That's certainly not the case in Luton.
My OH likes water so she usually takes a couple of empty 500ml bottles and fills them up from the drinking water the other side of Customs.

She asked security and they recommended it!

Cool... Can you give me one... *serious*

Looking to take the wife away for our anniversary and don't want to end up miles away from our destination... So that rules out Girona...

It amazes me the number of times this pops up on HUKD and still people still dont seem to get it.

For people voting cold, you need to understand what HUKD is about. Voting hot or cold is not based on whether you can make use of that deal... It's whether or not it's a good price for the product. If you dont think the deal posted is good value, and you think it's cheaper elsewhere, then vote cold (ideally pointing out where it's cheaper). If however you think it's a good deal and a very good price for the product, then vote hot. And yes, it really is that simple. Can you get this product for less money elsewhere? Y/N? Then click the Red or Blue buttons....

Bearing that in mind....

Is 1p a good price for the product? - Whether you can make use of it or not doesnt matter, the fact it might not be convenient for you doesnt detract from that simple question - Can I get this cheaper?

So by voting cold all that your saying is you can get flights for less than 1p. So please post details of where....
#35
If Ryanair cancel my return flight, would they offer me another flight at the same price or do I have to pay for full fare to come back?
#36
bearing that in mind, I think 1p for a flight is a good price, I dont think you'll find that cheaper elsewhere so heat from me.

Yes but its not 1p then is it? I'm not saying i can find a better deal but i'm not going to vote hot for 1p flights when my infant costs £20 each way and doesn't even take up a seat.


That's a fair argument - but perhaps you should have asked the OP to correct the deal title to "RyanAir 1p fights (£20 for infants) are back" before voting cold.

very good deal. just back from Venice. tickets for two both ways costed 4 pounds! cant get better.

Good question - especially in light of Realdealseekers post - does anyone know the answer?
banned#40
@graybags totally agree mate. I can't belive that people complain about a flight that cost less then a day underground ticket. With any other company taxes have to be paid also, extra luggage has to be paid for, extra service has to be paid for, yes nothing in the world is free - get over it! At least Ryanair gives you the option to save money...

If other people can't be bothered to get a Electron card, not pack an extra 15kgs of crap they dont need, pay the taxes which are allowing us to fly in the first place or read the damn T's and C's then fly with someone else cause I sure as hell don't want to sit next to someone who is unhappy with the service after they just spend more on a M & S sandwich then what they did on the actual flight.

And if it is the location of the airports that bugs you, then read where the airport is before you fly. I don't belive that these same people would fly to NY to find that JFK is 1 hour out of the centre.

Ryanair provides a 'bus' service for cheap to hundreds of locations and it works peferct.

BTW... Hot!
