Ryanair no luggage? And Belfast

Hi All,

Booked a flight with Ryanair, and selected no extra bags etc, so the baggage came to nothing - as only going on a daytrip!

My Question is : Are you allowed to take a handbag on board even though i selected no bags? Just for my purse, phone, Childs drink etc, will be smaller than an A4 piece of paper.

Also, were going to Belfast, do they take Euros there?
If so, and i cant be bothered to go and buy any Euros (which i probably wont as im lazy!) will i be able to pay for things via my debit card without a charge being put in place (Im with Halifax)
Also, just to be a pain, if i have to buy Euros, but dont get any before i go, will i be able to buy them over there?

Thanks, and sorry for the essay!

yes a holdall-backpack size-no drinks unless for an infant. You can take an empty bottle through security and fill in depatures or buy a drink at departures to take onboard

if you have a nationwide account there will be no charges and we use ours in the cash machines and duty free etc. You can open an account online easily.
Hope this helps?

i can also see done a google search n ireland is £ sterling?

Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom as well as Scotland Wales and England. All of which use sterling.

However...the currency notes that Belfast use are Bank of Ireland, Northern Bank and Ulster Bank. These notes can not be used in Scotland, Wales or England even though they are sterling. I know strange but true.

Northern Ireland (Belfast) is part of the UK and therefore they take pounds just like if you were in England, you can also use cash machines over here just lke you do at home.

Euros would be in the republic of Ireland - you know Dublin et al...

You can take a wheely case up to the dimensions stated but sometimes they make you put the handbag inside it, although they haven t done that lately, so you can have 10kg of luggage as long as it fits in the sizer at security. Sometimes they weigh mine as it is quite large, still only 7.5kg with about 5 days worth of clothes.Avoid taking shoes, they put the weight up.

well the notes can be used in the rest of the UK - done it many times - sometimes they have a bit of a look at it,
you can use your bank of england money here just the same - don't worry!

april in liverpool-a wheely case wouldnt fit in the rack they have and the handbag had to go inside the bag(one item only strictly!) thats why i said a holdall backpack type as that fits-and yep they allow 10kilos but hard to get into a bag size they allow? size is on the website anyway-but op said they just want to take kids items for a day trip so dont think she will have a problem:thumbsup:

i did also note easyjet have much larger size cage and a big ad says that they allow larger bags! i wil try to use easyjet next time!!

Thanks for the replies, forgot id made this thread, lol!

Only going on a daytrip, so dont need to take any spare clothes lol! Just wanted to make sure i could make my fella take his man bag, and load it up with all my rubbish - LOL!

Thanks again

Ill just take whatever cash i have laying around, and take my debit card, seems the best way!

Louloo I have a wheely case made for the job, many places sell them, they take the full 10kg

Funny thread... some weird comments :).

It'd be like me going to Wales and asking if they speak English or not.

Anyway... at least you know now that N.I is not part of the republic hence no special arrangements required.

They even take sterling over the border when you're nipping over for cheap(er) fuel.

no euros in belfast only southern ireland they take uk notes change at bank

no liquids on plane unless brought after security

i wouldnt change your money for euros anyway they probaly take them too in most places best to take sterling english scottish pounds bank of ireland pounds as euros are at sucha rubbish exchange rate at the moment and for one day wouldnt be worth it

We flew at christmas if you check their site it tells you what size bag you can take on board its a decent sized over night bag, but if you take a bag and hand bag you have to put one inside the other.

Places in Scotland will usually accept Bank Of Ireland money but lots of places in England will not, I have been stuck in England before with money from Northern Ireland and found out the hard way. They accept all U.K. currency in Northern Ireland but just make sure you only take English notes home with you.
