Ok, so we've been here before! The clever ones vote it hot, the stupid ones vote it cold!

NOT all flights are £1.
NOT all dates are £1.
BUT some are £1, if you're lucky you might get one.

Need to book by midnight 8th October.

I have posted the brilliant 'idiots booking guide' in post 1, with many thanks to Graybags.

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!!

hot from me-and regards part 6 of the idiots guide-I am flying ryanair tomorrow and confirm that pushchairs ARE free,and you dont need to check in in person at any extra cost-you just take them to the bag drop and they put them on the plane.

You certainly get what you pay for - rush for the seats, rude staff, dirty aircraft etc
Easyjet are far better and cheaper on a lot of routes!
(That was proved on Watchdog!)
That Michael o'leary was a smarmy git with pound signs in his eyes!

PS Just because you vote cold doesn't make you stupid - everyone is entitled to their point of view!

HOT from me...............cheap and uncheerful, gets me a £12 return from france so fine by me

I dont care if I have to stand for 4 hours and share the cabin with chickens for this money.
Honestly what do you expect?
Off to Barcelona at the end of October for 5 nights. £2 return! Hot Hot Hot.

course you are entitled to your point of view m8-I have personally never had a problem with ryanair-the watchdog programme proved nothing as far as I can see-representative sample of what? 30 people? also they dont seem to understand that ryanair prices rise the closer to flight date so comparing prices for flights departing the following week was hardly fair-as watchdog knew fine well,but it suited their story to conveniently overlook that.

I have flown easyjet too and found them excellent -I am taking a family of 6 to paris tomorrow for 6 quid each way total-dont think you can get an easyjet deal like that anymore can you?

Like I said,each to their own-for the price I have paid I dont expect 5 star luxury-I just wanna get to paris cheap and ryanair will deliver that.

I don''t recall any comparisons to the quality of service onboard the plane between Ryanair and EasyJet. However, I do recall that they used just 3 routes, so how you can claim "cheaper on a lot of routes" I don't know - especially as they will refund the difference if you find a cheaper EasyJet flight...

The programme also didn't take their frequent £1/1p etc. sales, which are the times I imagine most users on here would use them (I know thats the only time I use them - show me a £1 EasyJet fare and I'll happily switch).

Have always used Ryanair with no problems. We have French family in France & we can get long weekends when these offers are on for a couple of quid each. We always take hand luggage & check in online.....its simple :whistling:

I am flying to Dublin in about 2 weeks with Ryanair for a massive 2p return. (not the first time either)

To be 100% honest, i don't care where i sit as long as i get a seat. The staff can fart, belch and scratch their ***** if they like and if their is a few sweet wrappers on the floor so be it, i'll keep my shoes on.

After all i am only on the plane for about 35/40 mins.

Or i could book through someone else, have an escort to my seat, receive hand shakes off the pilot and all his crew (maybe a few kisses from the girls) and then find the plane to be sparkling all over and plastic still on the seats. I don't think i would get this treatment for 2p though.

So i can either pay 2p with Ryaniar or £80 with British Airways (easyjet do not fly there).






Also just like to add, that in all the times i have used Ryanair i have not seen a rush for seats, any rude staff or any filthy planes.

thanks for this, hot for me!

Usually fly further afield, and Ryanair only do short haul!
Have voted cold - deal with it!

ive travelled with ryan air & had no problems. Heat added

Booked 1 penny flights a couple of weeks ago with Ryanair, taking the family to Bristol for a day trip and Liverpool another day when the kids are off school for Halloween. I have traveled to Majorca with Ryanair and many internal UK flights - never any problems. Even if you detest Michael O'leary (as many do) instead of criticizing Ryanair it might be wiser to use their cheap flights for your own benefit. You may well be able to connect with other airlines to broaden your option for different destinations. Heat added

'The clever ones vote it hot, the stupid ones vote it cold!

- Would have voted hot and added to reputation but the above comment was not only rude but I personally sensed a desperation to get good ratings seemed more important to the poster than a real need to help ppl..

- Obviously wont vote cold coz the deal is gr8 but just wish ppl understood the spirit of this forum...

ta ta

Hmmmmm - well I hate rudeness so maybe I'll vote cold for that or for the same offer having been available quite recently or because it's one of those "offers" where it's so hard to find availability you may as well give up.

i have voted old ones cold but agree I was wrong. You have to look long and hard to get one of these but they are there. I am going to ireland for a weekend and it was gebuine. Only thing for me was I found ithard to get the return journey at the same price. Oh Well, keep digging and you will find your bargain.
Ryanair are crap, but get what you can and you get what you pay for,. Its worth up to 10p I think! :-)

in case this hasn't been mentioned, theres now a £5 online check-in fee which you can't avoid
unless you're very lucky and your "promotional fare" is excluded

good luck

Interesting comment. Personnally couldn't really give a stuff what you think! :thumbsup: History has shown three things when it comes to Ryanair deals:
Some people get really cheap flights.
Some clever people appreciate the deal, because they get a bargain or realise bargains are to be had.
Some morons **** the deal off, because it doesn't suit them.

So Sherlock, how did you guess my life revolves around getting hot votes and reputation on this frothy little website? :-D (Sarcasm, incase you missed it.)

Also, what is your definition of 'the spirit of the forum'? I ask because you have been a member for 9 months and yet have posted NO deals!!!! You just come on here and cherry pick what suits you, but don't help others.

"Easyjet are far better and cheaper on a lot of routes!
(That was proved on Watchdog!)"

You included the service quality and the cheaper price in the same sentance, followed by "That was proved on Watchdog!". You may not have meant it, but that sentance structure implies it was proven on Watchdog. I see you also didn't dispute that their survey only took place on 3 routes and didn't take account of the sale prices Ryanair have almost constantly. Again, you have selectively ignored the bit about Ryanair price matching Easyjet.

Trickyjabs, thanks to you i have just booked a return flight for myself and my wife to Milan for £4 which is great::thumbsup:

Last week I booked a return trip from Belfast City Airport to East Midlands Airport with Ryanair for my wife and me. Total for the trip was 4p. I have a visa electron card so I don't have to pay credit card fees. Make these deals work for you not the airline company.

not a fan of ryanair to be honest due to 2 bad flights with them (only been with them for 3 flights in total so not a good percentage success rate). i wont bore you with the details but needless to say I have decided that i will never again go with them again.

Face the facts - there are many people out there who think Ryanair are sh1t!
Simple!

Good guide from the OP and I have certainly benefitted from many flights costing no more than a few pence each way.........you do have to be flexible and follow the RYANAIR rules to get it for that price.

However, another little rule to add to the game, 4 of us travelled last week from Lpool to Cork for a few pence. Checked in online and just had cabin baggage, approx 9kg. Once through security, had a coffee and bought the some duty free for rels back home. BUT cabin bag size checked again at boarding, Remy Martin made case too big............so we unloaded trousers, tops etc and wore them so that we could fit the duty free in.

Girl was not amused. Said we should pay £30 to check the extra in (and miss the flight).

New game, if going by Ryanair....no duty free allowed, unless you leave capacity in your hand luggage.......My fault, it was stated but never had problems before taking duty free as well as normal hand luggage.

Why in the name of Christ do people keep putting this outfit on HUKD.I would imagine the whole world and his mother knows by now that you can get flights for twopence each way and it,s the best thing since sliced bread,God give me strength
