Ryanair is one of the biggest and most established low cost airlines in Europe. It flies from UK and Ireland to over 100 destinations around Europe. They are often the cheapest on routes where they compete with other low cost airlines. They are infamous for flying to remote and secondary airports. Consider this when calculating the price off your trip.

You can book your cheap air flights ticket through their website or by calling their Reservation Centre. Payment is done via credit or debit card. Some fees apply. Ryanair has its own Ryan.com credit card. You can get some extra free flights just for joining and later again for using it.

Ryanair does not issue tickets. At check-in you need booking reference and a Photo ID. Check-in desks close at 40 minutes before flight departure. There is a possibility of an online check-in for EEA passengers. It is very useful for those with only hand baggage. It allows you to check in (online) 72 – 4 hours before flight, so you can skip airport check-in and go straight to the boarding gate. Passengers who check-in online get priority seating.

Check-in baggage allowance is 20 kg. But note that it is not free. You have to pay 5 € per bag. Fee for excess baggage is 5.50 € per kilo. You can take on board only one hand baggage of maximum 10 kg weight.
They have a free seating policy.

Important: Same as EasyJet, Ryanair is a point-to-point airline. They don’t offer connecting flights service. If you miss your second flight because the first was late they will not accept liability or refund you any money (even if both flights were theirs).

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

Hope this helped you plan your trip and get your cheap air flights ticket. Take care and have a nice flight! :-)

In the article about EasyJet it was mentioned that since EasyJet does not issue tickets you need a booking reference and some Photo ID to check in.

Now, question is, what type of Photo Id is acceptable?
Most low cost airlines are not very precise. They just say they accept a valid passport or national identity card. This usually means:

- A valid passport
- A valid National Identity Card issued by a Government of a European Economic Area (EEA) country.
- Valid UN Refugee Convention Travel Document issued by a Government in place of a valid passport.
Some airlines may accept valid EEA driving licence with photo on domestic flights.

The same applies for children under 16 who are travelling with an adult. There are some situations when children can travel without a Photo ID, but that depends on the airline you are using, country you are citizen of and country you are flying to.

Please check the carrier regulations for more information and when in doubt which Photo ID to use – just use your passport.
