PLEASE NOTE:- Ryanair as of March have changed some things, like who can check in online, flexible dates on the booking system and some others. I will endeavour to update the guide as soon as is possible. Cheers!
We all know Ryanair by now. They're very much a marmite airline. Either you love flying with them, or you hate flying with them. They've become famous for their low fares approach to flying. They've become infamous for their sneaky ways of managing to charge you for either things you don't want, or things you shouldn't think you should be charged for. But hey, thats the way Ryanair work.
Seeing as this airline seem to be the most questioned on the forums, I'm going to try and write this guide to booking with them and flying with them to try and answer as many questions as possible, and give tips on Booking/Boarding/Flying with them.
I apologise in advance for a) if this seems long and b) if it seems a bit patronising, but for those who have never flown or booked with FR this might help and condense everything into one place.
For this guide, I will mostly refer to Ryanair as FR (Their IATA Code)
Part 1 - The first stages of booking - selecting when and where, plus knowing where you are flying.
Part 2 - Breakdown of fares available, how to get the best ones and how not to be overcharged for things you don't need and also Baggage Information + Associated Fees.
Part 3 - Contact Details, Confirming your flights, Payment (+Fees) & Submitting Your Booking
Part 4 - Checking Your Booking / Checking In (Check In Online / At Airport / Priority Boarding)
Part 5 - The Flight - Before & During (Boarding / The Aircraft / Inflight Service) & Members Tips
***DISCLAIMER:- I will not be held responsible if you follow this guide and get yourselves intro trouble or mess up your flight - I've written this as accurately as possible to help you out***
