Other Policies to Note Before Flying Ryanair
Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Ryanair is Europe’s biggest low cost carrier and the one all of you have heard of. Check out all of Ryanair’s destinations.
Here’s what you should know before flying Ryanair:
- Ryanair does not offer connecting flights. That means that if you need to take two Ryanair flights to get where you’re going, they won’t be on the same ticket, you might have to pick up your luggage from baggage claim and check it in again to get on the next flight, and if the first flight causes you to miss second, they won’t claim responsibility.
- Check in online. Checking in at the airport will cost you a little under $50. Print your boarding pass beforehand too unless you want to pay $16 for it.
- If you miss your flight for whatever reason, you can get re-booked on the next one for a little over $100 if it’s within 40 minutes before departure or one hour after.
- You have to pay to choose your own seat. Prices range from $9 to $16 depending on what kind of seat you want to reserve.
