I booked a 1p flightout to dublin with ryan air and have now realised I ve booked in my married name but my passport is in my maiden name.
If I take my marriage certificate plus my drivers licence will they still let me fly?
I aint paying no £75 charges, I d rather not go!!:p

    Do you need a passport?
    Do you have a photo driving licence that could be used instead.

    Are there any more 1p flights available for your trip? If so, just re-book and don't worry.

    Good point, I'd not thought of that.

    why not ring passport office and see how they could change your name on passport. I think when i had to change my name i just had to go to passport office with marriage certificate. I think they just wrote name new name on passport and stamped it.

    That must have been a long time ago! Now, the charge for a name change is the same as for a new passport. Not worth it for a 1 penny flight, that's for sure!

    you just take your marriage certificate and that should be fine. Happens with loads of newlyweds on honeymoon :)

    Thast just the problem I m not a newlywed!!!! I just refuse to pay 66 £ for a name change when my current passport is valid until 2012. i m not stingy or anything!!

    I do have a photo driving licence and I will be using it as part of my ID but always like my passport with me too.

    Thanked 30 Times in 21 Posts Photo ID to Dublin with Ryanair


    I have booked flights for a daytrip to Dublin with Ryanair. One of the party doesn't have a passport and only a PROVISIONAL driving licence. Does anyone know if this is an acceptable form of ID?

    Thanks in advance

    From ryanairs website

    A valid driving licence with photo is ONLY acceptable photo ID for travel on domestic flights within the UK and domestic flights within the Republic of Ireland.

    To be just safe i would phone them and check 0871 246 0000 (10p per minute)

    Check the say no to 0870 website they maybe have another line
    Thanks everyone! :D

    Not with Ryanair it won't be. They will stick to the letter of their T&C. Anyone else and you'd stand a chance.

    Use your photocard DL as suggested.
