This is the first part of the “Europe Low Cost Airlines” series.
EasyJet is one of the largest low cost airlines in Europe. They operate an ever-expanding network offering cheap air flights on 267 routes between 75 key European airports. (At least so they were on the date of writing) For this year they announced new routes for Split and Rijeka in Croatia, Marrakech in Morocco and Istanbul in Turkey.

You can book their tickets same as most low cost airline tickets - by going to their website, or by calling their sales center. On the website you can get a ₤10 discount on return flight.
Payment is done via credit or debit card and some handling fees apply. Advertised prices do not include airport taxes, which you will also pay.

Since Easy Jet does not issue tickets, all you need for check-in is your booking reference and some form of Photo ID. Check-in desks are open from two hours till 30 minutes before flight departure. Make sure you are there on time since low cost airline tickets are non-refundable. If you have only hand baggage, you can check-in online. EasyJet is introducing self-check-in kiosks. They are already operational at Nottingham East Midlands, Geneva and Berlin.

You can take only one piece of hand baggage with you. Free hold baggage allowance is 20 kg. Charge for extra baggage is ₤5 per kilo. They are very strict about it, so better weigh your baggage before you leave home.

EasyJet operates a free seating policy based on priority boarding system. This means, the sooner you check-in, greater the chance that you will find the seat you like.

Important: If you are having connecting flights leave enough time between flights to collect your baggage and check-in again.

UPDATE: I have written some update regarding hand baggage and hold baggage rules here.

Hope I helped you find some low cost airline tickets with Easy Jet. Take care and have a nice flight! :-)
