Found 14th Sep 2009
Flights with Ryanair £1 each way. Includes a few destinations not available previously.
Left hand menu gives the UK airports available (from drop-down menu). Then select your destination. Only choose the £1 flights that come up - if taxes etc are added - it's not on the deal. You CAN get return fares round Europe for 2 quid - see the idiot's guide below.

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 under two quid, I'll vote this deal cold myself!!

It is a great deal. Just a shame I can't find any to Faro!

wow hot - nice work thanks for the effort OP

Excellent guide mate, have some rep
Sadly there'll still be some trolls who wander from out from under their rocks ;-)

Thanks for the info and guide OP, Rep'd

I'd like to take advantage of this and take the mrs and maybe the kids somewhere but just for the day, i.e fly out early morning and back late that night.
We've just back from Ayia Napa so pennies are a bit short so i was thinking a cool day trip for 2 quid each would be GREAT! Problem is i have no idea where i can go that won't require a lot in taxis or whatever to get anywhere.
Anybody got any ideas?
Cheers

used the flights for a penny deal last year and went to pisa italy, had fanastic weather for a week, hotels where cheap but nowhere near the equivalent star rating found in this country. the train service is excellent over there and can get you easily to many other must see places. if you would like any further info and are considering pisa pm me and i'll give some reccomended places to go. ;-)

Great deal, great guide. I tried to do something like this for the last ryanair £1 deal but this is far more thorough! Have some rep.

Depending on what airports are handy to you, why not come over to Belfast for the day? It's an easy day trip and not too tiring. You could take the kids to W5 at the Odyssey arena for a fun and informative few hours. Belfast City airport is only about 3 miles away and a few quid in a taxi... see W5 info ] [COLOR="Red"]HERE [/COLOR] ... and Odyssey info ] [COLOR="Red"]HERE[/COLOR]

Noticed that you could take a week in Gran Canaria from Liverpool for £2 flights, but then there's accommodation etc

Yeah, that's the real killer as always. What we need is a website that ties together cheap flights like this with cheap holidays. Or is there one already and I just don't know about it?

im after somewhere nice fromm stanstead but not sure of the airports and areas

Cheers for the info, Rep'd.
It would have to be something really inteesting for the kids as 1 is terrified of flying (and hates shopping) and the other 2 havent flown.
The other half wants to go to Ireland but i think more for a w/e for a couple of nights out rather than just a day trip.
Is there anything else within easy reach of the airport?

Well, this guide deserves a medal or something.

Looking at London to Turin (London is the only airport that goes to Turin in the UK, even though Im in the North West) and it came to £14.99 each way, for the ticket itself, online chieck-in and no taxes etc. Any advice on getting from Blackburn to London Stansted? I heard that back in the day, theyd give you a free flight from UK airport to UK airport so you could get to where you were going.

Shame I dont have a passport, but these sort of prices make me wanna get one.

EDIT: £5 in March. Even better!! :-D

Some ideas:
Pisa is the ideal destination for day trips since it is a short walk from the airport to the centre of town.
Edinburgh is good - get on the number 35 Lothian Bus at the airport and buy a day pass on Lothian Buses. You can buy the day pass on the bus. This takes you to the centre of town, but does take about 45 minutes. Alternatively take a short walk to Ingliston 'Park and Ride' car park where there are other (faster) Lothian Buses to town centre. The Airlink bus from the airport is the quickest, but not included in the day pass.
At Dublin airport the equivalent fast airport pass is included in a bus day pass (about £6). Buy this pass from the information desk inside the terminal, I don't think you can buy it on the bus.

i cant seem to find anything at a quid. I can go anywhere, just cant find anywhere on the list! Any suggestions?

Gutted!
Was gonna book this morning but thought id wait till i was home, now they all have taxes on!!!

They do this all the time.

can't find anything in November for Bristol - Limoges lower than £5 each way

Limoges isn't on the £1 list for Bristol.

Just booked 3 seats to barcelona at the end of October. £6 return!!

The only thing to really advise is pay by visa electron if possible. Ryanair will charge £10 per person if you're paying any other way.

Is there a lot to do/see in Pisa?
Leaning tower?

"PISA AIRPORT CLOSED DUE TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS - 14/09/2009"

Having been to Pisa, the leaning tower is good to see (an the obligatory "pushing the tower" photo). In the same square is a cathedral. The rest of the city is a bit of a dump!
