Booking a holiday.....

So i'm booking a 'package holiday' for my sister. I book online all the time but never thought about this Q as i dont book package holidays for me.
OK so when booking, the flights are with RyanAir. I'm well aware that with Ryanair you have to check in online. So how will they go about Ryanair's checking in process.Obviously if you book with them you have to check in online and if you dont you have to pay (i think)
I can't word what i'm trying to say but surely if we book via another site with a Ryanair flight we will get penalised for not checking in but have no option to?
HELP!! xx

Yes but the booking isnt directly via Ryanair.I havent booked yet but maybe they give you your flight details and you log in to Ryanairs website to check in ? I'll ring the holiday company up in the morning!

The holiday will be booked via lowcostholidays if this helps anyone?

Didn't know Ryanair did flights as part of package holidays, but if so then ask the company arranging it, i'm sure they wouldn't let you be out of pocket. Maybe they check in on your behalf as you would have paid them for the "package"

I LOVE booking holidays! x

I booked a holiday in September....can't remember, but I think it was Lowcost. The holiday company gave me a ref number, and impressed that I had to go online to check in. It all worked out fine (and cheap), and we just printed out our own boarding cards. No probs

Remember transfers etc...

I looked at doing this for our last holiday. I couldnt find any saving doing it this way. Due to all the add ons such as transfers. I have used Rynair plenty of times but would never take kids on their flights due to the nature of boarding. My advice would be to check on Thomas Cook or Thompson Holidays site and get the agent in town to price match it. You can then check everything in the shop and you are better protected if anything goes wrong.
