Any way of adding luggage ONLY ONE-WAY with Ryanair after booking? (Online it charges both ways)

Found 29th Nov 2008
Travelling with Ryanair for xmas hols and now need to add golf clubs and a bike onto the booking. We only want to take them there (not bringing them back), but when I try to book online it charges £50 for each item and automatically books them both legs . Anyone had success phoning Ryanair and getting the one-way price?

yes, I'm hoping some people might confirm whether this has been the case with them too.

Less than useless, yes. And they charge per minute for the privilege :roll:

Good thanks; hope you're well too

I've never checked luggage in with them either. But this time we need to bring these these as they will cost about three times the amount to buy there.

Thanks for the link - maybe I should send emasu a PM - he knows a lot about all things to do with aviation!

I don't know if you can, but have you tried booking two lots of one-way?

Doesn't give the choice because the flight booking has already been made - months ago - so when I log into my account to make changes it only gives the single choice which includes both segments

Ah. I just checked that it is possible to do the separate booking of the two one-way flights so it might just be cheaper to start all over again and junk the original booking. I have noticed some free(ish) flights Manchester - Dublin for instance

Going to Marrakech, one of the those places Ryanair rarely apply the heavy discounts to unfortunately. If I were to re-book today , it would cost £1,063.08 before excess luggage costs! :w00t:

Not a brill idea then!!:roll:
Is there a lot of golf in Marrakech and cycling? Buy them there?

Hmmm.... I take it you will have hold baggage with you anyway? Otherwise the whole party would have to do airport check in if it did work online.

Anyway, it looks like the only option will be the call centre. The online system might have a bug about both flights being on the same reference number. It's best to ring up ASAP because if you try it at the airport, the hold might have other bikes/sports equipment already allocated.

That £12 is probably better spent on piece of mind than worrying that it might go wrong at the start of the trip.

When I tried to do this in the summer I popped into the ryan air desk at stansted a few day prior to flying and they said they can do it one-way, however they charge differently to online and it was a stupidly expensive so it worked out cheaper for me to go home and book it for the return than it would have done for one-way from the desk......typical ryanair logic

Well our place is next to (perhaps) the best golf course in the country and we need an extra bike for local cycling. Both things can be bought there, but the quality foreign items we want are much more expensive - about 3 x. Local stuff is very cheap of course but their quality items are limited to hand-made artisan stuff, nothing that involves shaping aluminium or fibreglass...

Thanks both :thumbsup: Yes, sounds like emasu's advice is spot on then. Ok, bite the bullet time and phone the call centre (grrr... I hate being exploited in this way, but doesn't seem to be any choice - although I will try one of the landline numbers listed on saynoto0870 first).

Rep added. Thanks again, especially to emasu for flying in especially :-D
