Basically a pile of seats at £4.99 - includes taxes etc - only optional extras will increase your price. The usual guide to follow..
Personally, I found some of these yesterday (Leeds to Alicante) so there might be more than the advertised destiantions available. If it comes up with all the extra taxes etc - move on - it's not in the deal.
You will also find some flights at other "inclusive of taxes" prices, have a mooch around.

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.
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!!

Much as we take the *&^( out of Ryanair. They are the most punctual airline around. Strange but true. It helps that they fly between "minor" airports, on the whole. No need to wait for permission to take off behind 15 more 747s

That and the fact they add about an hour to the journey time to help them "make up" any delays in flight.

My other half takes them alot, they are very punctual. They are still **** though.

Voted hot however, I'm not sure compulsory paid for check-in is an "optional extra"!!
;-)

Really? That is a suprise. I have only used them twice admittedly but both times they were late and no one had a clue what was going on. Anyway, they are still **** and the only airline now that I will never use again unless there is absolutely no other choice. The constant adverts/announcements on the flights do your head in! :roll: :-D

I've just applied online at the Halifax site. It's the EASYCASH account you require for a Visa Electron Card apparantly. :thumbsup:

With respect (none) that's total bull****. The flights LEAVE on time. That's why they are so punctual. The flight times are the actualy flight times (give or take 5 or 10 mins - after all it's uphill 1 way :-D).

You need to read the idiot's guide. On these flights the online check in is free. Therefore, if you're choosing a different flight and paying for your check-in, then it's an optional extra.

Be prepaired to fly in your underpants,for a cheap flight with Ryanair lol.

If you are thinking of bringing luggage with you or taking it back home then it will probably be cheaper to charter another plane for your luggage. lol

Joking aside do read the guide above before booking as dealing with this company is like dealing with a loan shark,the costs can be alot more than you exspect.
Oh and dont even think of buying a sandwich on the plane.

I used entropay last time as I didn't have time to open an Electron account - it'll only cost about £1 in charges on this deal (4.95% of the amount transferred) - frankly I'd quite enjoy paying them £1 knowing I'd deprived Mr O'Leary from £20 :thumbsup:

Would love to take advantage of this and maybe go away for a long weekend next month for my birthday.
Not really bothered where just somewhere hot and a nice beach would be a bonus abd also fairly near to the airport would be fantastic lol.

Anybody know of anywhere they could suggest?

The guide helps (which is why I wrote it).You'd be surprised how much you can get in a 10Kg carry-on case - people forget that basically you're taking your case in the cabin. 10Kg seems stingey, but in my experience, filling a bag that fits their dimension criteria will still be under the weight allowance. Failing that a 20Kg case in the hold only costs £20 - so you can still be flying to a European destination for under £30 return - case and all. I honestly think that's still competitive.

Excellent just booked 5 flights to the cousins wedding in Dublin for £12 each bargain! Thanks x

You've got to laugh. -2 degrees, yet no cold voters have offered me a cheaper alternative. I don't think some people understand how this site works.
