Booking your flight

The Ryanair website offers many different ways to book your flight. Let’s say that you’re using the fare finder and found a cheap flight on a convenient date from Liverpool to Ibiza. After you click on the fare finder result, you will see the price chart around your dates:

The chart gives you the option to select the date with lowest price or another date if you prefer. When you are done selecting your dates, click Continue in the top.

You will then be given the option to select the specific luggage requirements and the respective price depending on the fare.

Important! Make sure you get familiar with the luggage policy of Ryanair. Several low cost airlines have recently updated their cabin bag requirements. This means that your usual cabin bag may no longer be allowed without an additional fee. I used to bring a small suitcase which was allowed on board, but now their policy includes only one small handbag. For more details check Ryanair’s info here.

The tickets will be added to your basket. Click Continue and you will have to confirm again your choice of bag. It’s irritating and slows down the process in my opinion.

Click Continue again and you will be asked if you want to choose your seat. This will cost you an additional charge, so skip it if you don’t have a seating preference.

Click Checkout and you will finally be able to confirm passenger details and pay for your tickets.

What to be careful about

Low-cost airlines, including Ryanair use several tricks in order to sell you a more expensive ticket. Be careful for these hidden fees:

  • choosing a specific seat
  • trip insurance
  • luggage options
  • fast checkout
  • rental car offers
  • airport transfers

Alternative low-cost airlines in Europe

Other very popular low-cost airlines in Europe are Wizz Air and Easy Jet. Wizz Air have a convenient trip planner tool here and you can check my guide on how to use it here. Easy Jet have a low fare finder tool, which I haven’t tested yet.
