The additional cost of Ryanair

Advantagesquick, easy to use website and affordable fares

Disadvantageshidden charges and having to pay for airport check-in

"I have just booked a long weekend away in Berlin with 7 friends for next year (May 2007). I have never flown with Ryanair before and only booked on this occassion because it was the cheapest option (£49.09 return including airport taxes etc). The website, whilst garish and full of flashing banners is fairly infomrative and realtively easy to use. However when it came round to actually booking i realised why Ryanair claim to have the cheapest fares ..." Read review

Oh how very cheap!

AdvantagesVery cheap airfares to an within Europe

DisadvantagesBasic travel with basic seats

"So i wanted to go to Scotland but didn't want to pay an extortionate amount - welcome to Ryanair. The online facilities were easy to use and it was just as easy to book. No faffing about, just straight foward pages of easy to read info; remember that you do need a printer though as this is a ticketless airline! Of course being my first flight ever it would have been nice to have the comforts of one of the bigger and more expensive airlines, but Ryanair ..." Read review

ryanair bargain fares

Advantagescheap ,quick,clean,safe,punctual,book lastminute without needing to wait for tickets to arrive as its a ticketless airline.

Disadvantagesno good if you want anything more than basic service.flies to less central airports in many cities e.g from stansted in london to oslo torp which is about 1.5 hours drive from oslo city centre.same applies for flights to stockholm etc

"ryanair is great to use if you can be flexible on travel dates and often throughout the year you will find from midnught friday till midnight monday,most bookings are offered online only,at promotional rates-i took advantage of these a few times this summer.generally the majority of flights they offer (which are european only) were on average 5-9 pounds return plus tax!which is so cheap you cannot go wrong .most recently i flew from stansted to oslo ..."

Advantageslurverly people and ever so cheap :)

Disadvantagessquished bum syndrome

"Well I just had to tell you about the cheapest flight I have ever bought, the company Ryanair is marvellous. I got a return fare from Birmingham to Dublin for a mere £29 including tax. I know from visiting their web-site again that they are beating this price now and are offering flights for only a pound (this does not include tax). Their destinations are from all of the main UK airports to Ireland, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Scotland, ..." Read review

Rip Off Air!!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesEverything

"First, we paid £339-10 for 2 return tickets to Gerona, spain, hardly cheap is it! The outgoing flight took off 25mins late, but somehow arrived more or less on time. I wanted a drink onboard and was offered a WARM 33cl can of Carlsberg lager at £3-80! I declined their kind offer. The return leg was a completely different kettle of fish! On arrival at Gerona airport we joined one of the 2 queues for our flight, we were about 15th in the queue, 11/2 ..." Read review

Hello did some say BARGINS OF THE CENTURY

AdvantagesCheap, quick, easy and instant confirmation.

DisadvantagesYou can get carried away and there is only so much of Europe you can see.

"...aka "the travel bug" then Ryanair.com is for you. If you are looking for a trip away or just a weekend away to somewhere in Europe then check this site out. They offer time-limited offers. However, note that though the flights are offered at £1 a seat they will add on airport taxes which will mean the average price of a return ticket will be about £20 minimum but you'd be a fool to shake your head at that. If you appreciate Ryanair for what it is ..." Read review

Tip

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesTakes some playing with

"Ryanair's website is cleanly designed, easy to navigate and use. It actually makes online booking easy. However, there are a few quirks in the system that you can use to your advantage when it comes to finding the cheapest fares. Check out the difference in prices by changing your flight dates slightly. You'll be amazed. Weekends are more expensive - which is understandable - but you can reduce the price of both outbound and return flights by changing ..." Read review

Easy online booking service

Advantagessee text

Disadvantagessee text

"...again. My Dad recently used Ryanair.com to get a flight to Norwich and that reasonably cheap as well. So, if you haven’t tried flying, it’s not for business people or rich people, it’s a really affordable means of transport. Delays are few and it’s really efficient. Just make sure you give the right details when you book online and everything will be fine. For cheap, no messing around flying that is quick and efficient, ..." Read review

a good service that gets a poor rap

Advantageshugely improved website - large variety of destinations - low cost

Disadvantagesexpensive extras - poor customr service

"Although I have been a regular user of Ryanair services for around 12 years, I have never written a review, although I regularly debate the relative merits with other people. I feel that Ryanair get a very raw deal, with people often complaining about things that are beyond their control. Yes they offer a very basic service, yes their staff are not well trained at customer service, yes their seats are small and uncomfortable, but are they CHEAP?? ..." Read review

Ryanair? Worth the Money?

AdvantagesCheaper

DisadvantagesMisleading

"Well, where do I start with Ryanair. Last year in december I decided that I was going to go and see Metallica live in London. I had been waiting to see this band for years, and now was my chance, I pulled together all the money I could lay my hands on in order to be able to afford the ticket, the flight and the hotel. So I decided to go to Ryanair.com. Flights: Well, I was online and the website was incredibly easy to use, it did not take me ..." Read review

CHEAP or CHEAT?

AdvantagesOK. FOR FLYING AT SHORT NOTICE

DisadvantagesSTRAIGHTJACKET SEATING

"This is purely by example and not specific. I have travelled with Ryanair about 6 to 8 times a year for about 4 years now and have found them very useful, in fact I still use them occasionally now if it suits me and my journey is no more than 2 or 3 days..but, the fact is that this company are not so cheap if you consider the overall picture, for example..if you travel out of Birmingham to Spain(now changed to East Midlands) the flight may be £29.99 ..."

Up-to-date information

AdvantagesPromotion on the front

DisadvantagesNo payment with swift

"I started traveled with Ryanair since September 1999. I always buy my ticket on line because it is the most convenient way for me. The site of the company is fairly user friendly. You can easily find your way around in that site. In addition, they always put the current promotion at the very front page so that you can easily get the most up-to-date information. However, there is one problem which I always experience with that site. When I try to buy ..." Read review

Why pay more if you can have for much less?

Advantagesair tickets booking online for much less

Disadvantagesthe tax is a shame

"Last year I had to go to Hamburg in Germany with my boyfriend and we bought than two return tickets, but the price that we paid was about £140 pound for each ticket. Now you can go nearly everywhere in Europe with Rynair and booking online for nearly nothing. The price of the TAX that you have to pay is more than the price of the ticket that you have to buy or want to buy. I must admit that when the ticket was £1 pound the tax was about £30. But it ..."

No frills means no frills, keep this in mind and get a bargain!

AdvantagesCHEAP, number of destinations available, regular promotions

DisadvantagesVery little to complain about considering the prices! Changes are expensive

"In terms of value for money, this airline is very hard to beat. Yes, they may not offer the best service and their seating leaves alot to be desired but when your flight costs less than a sandwich, you have little to complain about. I have used Ryanair several times and found them to be very good each time. The prices that this airline offers at times are beyond amazing and you may find that you spend more money getting to the airport than the flight ..." Read review

Hassle free booking

AdvantagesQuick, easy and inexpensive

DisadvantagesMust travel from certain airports

"ryanair.com is a wonderful, hassle free way of booking an airfare on the Internet. I could highly recommend it to anyone. I went with a friend to visit our mate who works in Biarritz. Within five minutes of suggesting the trip we had both arranged our flights. It really is that easy. The format for booking is simple. Firstly you are given a list of airports that they fly from and to. You merely state where you want to travel. Outline the dates ..." Read review
