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. If you see a flight priced at £0.00 it will NOT be in the deal and taxes etc will be on top. Sometimes there are complete flight prices (inc. taxes) at prices not advertised on the main page, so it can pay to check.
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). NOTE if you want to buy duty free before you fly, you will have to be able to stick it in your hand-luggage case/bag - you will not be allowed 2 bags onboard. If you do need more luggage a 15Kg case is an extra £20.00 (return)
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.
However, infants that need to travel on your knee will be charged at £20. That's just the way Ryanair works.
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 under a tenner, I'll vote this deal cold myself!!

After January 1, you won't be able to use that for free, there will be a charge

Fortunately this deal ends on Friday, so it is not an issue - but worth noting for the future.

I think from Jan 1st you need a prepaid mastercard - am I right? These are pretty easy to come by aren't they?

Off subject I know - sorry! Hot deal anyway... I've been on 5 ryanair trips that have cost me a grand total of £26 for two of us this year. Going to Morocco in 10 days, that broke the bank though. £20 return!!!

£20 return to North Africa? Are you made of money? LOL

Yeah Pre-Paid Mastercard. i don't know how easy they are to get though

Yes from 1 Jan the Visa Electon goes back to being a normal/charged payment method so it would be inadvisable to take one out now especially to blag free Ryanair payment.

A Mastercard Prepaid card (from today) is the new free (and obscure of course!) method that allows Ryanair to advertise prices without bumping them up by their totally outrageous debit card charges (with credit cards it's less clear cut how much profiteering is achieved by them as they do get charged a % of the transaction value, rather than pence per transaction for debit cards).

I did try to post news of the new deal on free payment at Ryanair yesterday but it got shunted off into Miscellaneous graveyard:

It's the 'free payment by...' that is changing from today and first Jan.
From today they have added MasterCard Prepaid cards as a zero surcharge payment method.
From 1 Jan they change Visa Electron from zero to normal surcharge ie £5/€5 person/flight

No effect on gift vouchers that I can see there.

entropay do a pre paid mastercard

Found a lot of £14.99 flights to the canaries going from Stanstead even though they initally advertise them at £29.99. Nice bit of winter sun, yes please. See you all on the plane.

Have a look ;-)

I saw a lot of flights from Liverpool that had the £5.00 on-line check-in (so not actually part of the deal) but had no taxes, so a few flights in the £15 region. You've got to check.

Graybags - Excellent guide!

You're clearly the messiah when it comes to booking with ryanair so in your opinion when would I be best to book flights Luton - Dublin going late May Bank Holiday??? Its currently £20 each way inc taxes but wondering if I should wait till January Sales??? WDYT?

Oh, and the fiver flights are back. There's also a lot that are just the basic price plus an on-line £5.00 booking fee (i.e. no taxes) so quite a few bargains to be had outside the deal.
