not really worth it then
#5
been searching and finding nothing!
#6
They're up! And as always, if you're flying without checked luggage and pay with Visa Electron it actually is free! Have been allover Europe literally for free with Ryanair!
#7
brilliant stuff. every flight has cost me £0.02 but i'm off to ireland, france and italy for 6p! great deal!
banned#8
charged me £10 debit card fee..damn should have read the small print
#9
lots of bargains, shame no wkend flights from bournemouth though (that I can find)
#10
not "free" at all. impossible to avoid the "optional extra" of checking in online fee.

I accept that you can fly at 5.20am on a tuesday morning from prestwick to ex-milatary base 3 hour coach ride from civilisation, avoid baggage and use an electron card. And that for some is a good deal, but because of the check-in. It is not free.

Still affy cheap for flights, just not suitable for everyones needs.
#11
when i clicked on the flights at 1p, it said online checkin was free also.

it is slightly misleading, in that these flights are not free. they are 1p each way. which is as close as u get to being free.

the only reason i aint booked any, is because couldnt find any for less than a week between departure and return. was hoping for a few days away somewhere.

but these are great bargains, grab them while u can
#12
Does anyone have any tips on how to get from the airports, once you've arrived, to somewhere of interest, cheaply. It's all very well paying 2p for the flights there but if I then have to spend £50, say, to get away from the airport it ruins the deal.

Shows how often I travel! I didn't realise buses and trains went from airports, thought I'd have to get a taxi to them first! :oops:

most continental airports have far better services and cheaper too.

e.g. flew to barcalona airport (about 10 miles outside barca), and train was £1.50 and was supremely comfortable and went every 10 mins - on time!
#17
A real rip off! I just booked 3 flights from Bournemouth to Dublin in Dec for 6p return. Yes, a real rip off:whistling:



Thanks to OP for this post. Off to Dublin for 3 days, no baggage (holdalls), paying by Electron. Get the 16a bus into town for £1.20 each. £50 a night for B&B. Sorted.

Google the name of the airport that you are flying to and look at their website. Almost every one of them has details of the connections to/from the airport and prices.

Brilliant deal. Thanks.

You obviously did not fly with Ryanair, if you went to Barcelona airport. Ryanair use Girona and Reus, both 100km away. Transport links to the main airport are very good.
#22
It seems the 1p flights are the cheapest overall e.g. from Gatwick to Cork. All the free flights seem to add £10 on in fees.

I think I saw a Gatwick - Parma flight that was was completely free outbound, but not cheap on the inbound.
#23
Not 'Free' at all, 0.01 each way...........then a £20 handling fee when you pay with any kind of card but Electron.
Voted cold........misleading by using the word' FREE'
#24
List of routes: http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/cheapflights.php?dest=BHD&base=STN

If the price is £2.99 then it's actually £37.26 with taxes and fee on top without any bags! :? ONE WAY

It might be a good deal but ONLY for selected routes.
#25
small point

how does one obtain an "electron card"?
#26
I just looked and flying in February cost 0p each on the way back, BUT with £5 online booking fee(which you cannot get round), taxes /fees = £75.69 (£108.78 to go out tickets were £5.89) so definetly not FREE

Halifax online.


Just applied for mine and it says:

We are currently experiencing very high volumes of the Easycash application. This means that it may take longer than 7 days for us to begin the review of your application.


I wonder why? :whistling:
#29
Has any one noticed the "Free online checking Tickets" work pre December i.e. you can find flights with no tax and no check in fees but as soon as you hit december (even within the 17th December cut off and following all the other rules) that a £10 tax per person per leg is being added.

I can't see any reason why this would happen.......

....


Hmmm, not as impressed as previous offers.
Im booked for Barcelona at the end of Oct from a PREVIOUS offer for £2 return. no fees at all. (electron as well).

These routes, from what I've looked at all add on £10 per leg per person. Not so good. :?

Am I missing something or is the FREE Ryanair promotion as advertised on the back of the Panorama program a bit of a swizz and just a quick way for Mr O'Leary to get some more bums on seats with paying a penny to advertise?

Call me cynical but it does appear that way.
#31
As with all of these offers, voted hot.
Just back from an Ryanair trip to Bologna for £6 return though so better hold back for a while!

I have to agree with one thing said yesterday (“Panorama”). You CAN get cheap or even almost free tickets with Ryanair if you are REALLY flexible. These tickets are for Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays or Sundays (sorry but to be honest I can't be bothered to check again) on SPECIFIC routes. So it's not really good for me, if i want to go to my hometown, which is not included in a free offer. So well done to all these that are either lucky or flexible enough with destinations and dates as you can actually take advantage of this offer :) But no, I wouldn’t say that it’s a great offer and as always with Ryanair read the small writing and double check the price before you pay. And for the record, I am using Ryanair for a long long time so I do know how to book my tickets :thumbsup:

I've just tried a random booking and 1p flights are widely available across a lot of dates, with no web check in fee. I've gone right through to the point where credit card details are entered and it is quoting me £0.02 for a return flight. Assuming you use Visa Electron there is nothing to add on to this.

I agree that there are probably no free flights, with the cheapest likely to be £0.02, so technically not free. I've tried to edit my opening post to change the cost to £0.02, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

If you're flexible, travelling light and have a Visa Electron card, then return flights are definitely widely available for 2p.

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.

Thank you for all that effort. I love Ryanair but dislike that T*&d O'Really. If you 'play the Ryanair game' wisely, you can fly for pennies.

Took a bit of effort checking dates but got myself a trip to Oslo and back for 4p, used an electron and no extra baggage so final tally was indeed 4p! Awesome!
