Im flying with ryanair and im confused at what time your meant to get at the airport, what with online check in etc.

Check in up to 2 weeks before the flight online. (both in and out bound)
Make sure you print your boarding pass (i would do it twice and have them in two separate places) for both out and inbound flights.

Get there an hour and a half or so before your flight

Fly with a different airliner

greenmachine12 - You could just look at the Ryanair website!

be at the airport 2hrs before flight (if you have luggage)
Maybe a bit late now for you but if you have a phones4u prepaid mastercard (online or bought in the shop, online you can do through topcashback) you then dont have to pay the credit/debit card fees which i think are £5 per sector per person.

As for flying with another airline.... if somebody could please tell me where I can fly to Spain and back for £20 then i would be gratefull for the info..

Just used Ryanair for a trip to lanzarote. First time we have ever used them and to be honest they were great. We paid for priority boarding and both times we sat at the front of the plane in extra legroom seats. We took off and landed on time , all for a silly price. Would cost us more than what we paid going from Birmingham to London by train.

As above arrive 90 minutes min before departure and enjoy your break

2 years ago we booked a flight back from Girona for 1 euro..Ryanair rely on a quick turnaround which ensures also that their times are bang on and delays are at a minimum. You can also save a few quid paying the flights seperately as their exchange rate from euro's to £'s is pretty decent..

£9.99 for phones4u prepaid escape card and you get about £7 back from topcashback, see my earlier qote.

I know, i read it, and got confused. Baggage drop, i mean does that mean there is someone there? Why do you need to print your own boarding passes off if someone is there!

Confusing company!

Thanks for the other replies

Book through travelrepublic and you don't pay the credit/debit card fees for the same flights

We flew Ryanair last week. If you know what to expect, it's fine. I use a Net+ card. It avoids Ryanair charges but doesn't recognise the difference between a debit and credit card. Decided the £1.50-ish charge was worth it. No charge for the card otherwise.
Also have a virtual card for one off use...never used it though so can't comment.

Used travelrepublic before, fairly good company but if they go under, Ryanair will not cover your flight as it's booked through a 3rd party.

As for finding the thread, I find Google is a better HUKD search tool most of the time!
