Thanks for the tip!

I took the family (2 adults + 2 children) on a day trip from Bristol to Dublin last week (4th July). We had a great day out and it only cost 8 PENCE IN TOTAL!!

Just need to 'remove' the online check in / priority boarding option when you come to book it!

With 250,000 seats on offer I might give the Ryanair 5 flights in a day challenge a go!! It can be done, just, on this routing:
BRS-DUB / DUB-ORK / ORK-LGW / LGW-DUB / DUB-BRS. However there is a tight connection at LGW!

Hi!

I've got a question. I've booked a return ticket GRO-HHN HHN-GRO for just €0.02 and would like to buy an outbound flight a couple of days earlier. Would I get any penalisation if I don't show up for the original outbound flight. Would I still be able to use the return leg?



At the bus station, buses stop. At the train station, trains stop. At my desk, I have a work station.

I just looked and it works perfect for me, plenty of 0,01 EUR offers. But I won't book, driving to the middle of nowhere to fly to the middle of nowhere is pretty pointless IMO, even if it is for free. I had to spend a boatload of money for gas to get to/from NRN (over 100 km from here), another boatload of money to get from my destination airport to downtown and back (just saw that NYO is 100km away from Stockholm city), and a boatload of money for the parking fee at the airport because NRN is not reachable by public transport.

I can't see any free flights. The smallest amount is £0.01 before tax.

Great prices for you guys in the UK or Ireland, but checking their web site on flights originating from RIX, the cheapest destination to anywhere is GBP 14.99, not including taxes, to anywhere.

Yeh I got that page too. But then I am still paying 2 pence for a return flight. Not free.

But I booked PIK-DUB-PIK and EDI-DUB-EDI for the sake of it.

I think Ryanair have to charge something - even 2p - because if they actually give the flight for free it affects some laws or something. They have to charge to cover themselves (that's what I've heard anyway). I do hate the way they say it is free though!

We did this on Thursday last week - EMA-DUB for the day for 4p in total for two of us! Brilliant offer and Ryanair were actually really good - watch for the trip report coming soon!  Smile

Today I've booked STN-SXF-STN for the day (spotting trip), the following week STN-SNN-LPL-TRF-STN in a day (just for the hell of it) and the week after that STN-TSF-STN for a day out with the wife - grand total of 10p!! Not even any credit card charges for booking the ex-SNN and TRF legs on a Visa card!

I wonder the same. I am waiting for the transaction to post into my CC statement so i can see if they charge the 0.01 Euros, but nothing so far. I actually bought another ticket with my US Credit Card, where I can see (through online banking) if there are pending transactions and nothing from Ryanair...

Just booked two return tickets, end of September STN-OPO for 4p return in total! Plus as an extra bonus our outward flight is on a Saturday(as usually these flight offers are midweek flights only), so it minimises the time I have to book off from work!  bigthumbsup 

I got stung with the £10 suitcase fee, which I am sure I can live with!  banghead

Nothing at all - I've had to book two legs of my "round robin" flight on my VISA as you can't use a UK Maestro card for flights from abroad. I was expecting a credit card charge but have not been charged at all.

The credit card charge is normally shown when you choose your payment method (it adds it onto the cost of the flight that you see before you click "Pay"). By law they have to state clearly what the credit card charges are before you submit payment.

So the answer is - no charge at all!  Smile

I "played" a bit with the booking engine yesterday night and I found out that they always added taxes to "Web Fare" while "Reg Fare" was always without taxes. Could that be the reason?

Don't think so as when i looked earlier, the web fare was displayed and no taxes added, same for yesterday.

Just my luck i guess  Angry
