Another Ryanair One Pound/Euro Flight Offer...

Ryanair do this every two to three months and offer a load of flights at One Pound/Euro...

They have today just launched their latest seat sale, and just come off the phone to my friends and seems like were off to Barcelona (flying to Gerona!) from Luton for a few days in September...

I am just brushing off the cobwebs off my Visa Electron bank card which I have in the darkest depths of my wallet and will transfer to money to the account so I can avoid the credit card charges! (Is the only time the card gets used!)

Key to people booking the cheap fares and avoiding the charges is, be flexible, pay with a Visa Electron Card and don't travel with hold luggage!

If you need to take hold luggage and paying with another card type, CONGRATULATIONS you have just been charged about another £40 return for your £1 ticket!  Wink

Be cool to know where other people are off to, and taking advantage of the offer...

I also have an Electron specifically for booking with FR.

Absolutely. Along with: once you've found a fare you're happy with, book!

Yep. And, don't forget, 99% of their 'surcharges' are optional.

I shall now have a look at opportunities from EMA.

And don't forget the coach ticket fee, to actually get to Barcelona! I have an idea it was 60 Euro, return, but it was back in 2006 and it may have been for a couple of seats.

Great choice of city though...

Return for one person is €21 and takes around 75 minutes each way. http://www.barcelonagirona.com/bcn-bus.htm

No chance of that happening if you continue to give FR free press on A.net!  sarcastic 

I wonder how the EU allows FR to stay in business this way.... If an airline pulled that crap here in the U.S. the D.O.T. won't be very happy.

What is your point?

1) Naturally not every fare will be available for the lowest price;
2) Online check-in fee is included within the actual fare structure yet just shown as being separate; and
3) Fares that are part of the deal appear as £1/€1 not 0.00GBP/0.00EUR. With such fares, you don't have to pay online check-in. An example of this is below:

Depart:
East Midlands 06:25

Arrive:
Belfast (City) 07:30

1 x Adult 1.00 GBP
Fare: 1.00 GBP
Online Check-In: 0.00 GBP
Taxes / Fees: 0.00 GBP
Total Price: 1.00 GBP


I found loads of £1 tickets with no taxes or online check-in very quickly.

There has been a warning on its website stating errors. I have experienced some problems.

Unlucky then. I'm booked up with four return trips, two for £12 and two for £16 all in. All flights I have to take regularly anyway. Hardly BS.

There's two in Stockholm I think. Neither are that close to be honest.

I had a couple of £1 all in flights a few years back to Dublin. Great if you can get them!

Whoever says they can't get this offer, are doing something wrong. I just booked the following:

BSL-MRS (1 CHF)
MRS-BVA (1 EUR)
BVA-GRO (1 EUR)
GRO-PMI (1 EUR)
PMI-GRO (1 EUR)
GRO-OPO (1 EUR)
OPO-MAD (1 EUR)
(all without online check in fee)

All of this on September 14-15-16

I don't have an Electron card, it doesn't exist in my country, but there is a trick, you can get a virtual one on the internet and just load it with your credit card. Easy enough.

I'll enjoy this trip, and it includes one day at the beach in Mallorca! YEAH
I just emailed PlymSpotter if he wants to come along on parts f this trip. If anybody else wants to come...

Th common one used by Ryanair is Sthlm Skavsta situated 80 minutes coachride from Sthlm City terminal. A return costs 20 Euro.
As a comparison the coachride to the main airport Sthlm Arlanda takes 40 minutes from Sthlm city terminal. A return costs 20 Euro here as well...

Its the same company that runs the coach service to both airports.
And no Skavsta isn't close to Stockholm, probably about 80 km away while Arlanda is about 40 km away from the city.

However its only an additional 40 minutes, the coach costs the same, and if you manage to get a flight for 1 pound sterling, those 40 extra minutes on the coach are probably not a worry...
