    Easyjet Tricks - guide discussion 1st Jul 15 at 4:53 PM


    Hi all,

    We've written a new Easyjet Tricks guide and would love your feedback.

    How did you find the info? Was it useful? Do you have any other tips you'd add?

    Thanks for your help!

    Does the website always update at 6 am?

    And is it possible to know the exact release date?

    It's not necessarily 6:00am on the dot. I had a couple of alerts set up and received text messages and emails at 05:24 and 05:25 for Route 1 and 05:26 and 05:34 for Route 2 respectively.

    Booking acknowledgement received at 05:44.

    And where do you set up alerts for this?

    Closer to the time the actual date will appear on the easyJet site - at least it did this time and has before - and was also reported here on MSE.

    lowcostroutes.com for alerts.

    I was looking to book return flights to Naples and the return flight was £127. I just went to book and it had reduced to £90 saying only 4 seats at that price. Is that a 'sale' regular or something new from Easyjet - and can prices go down further before departure (35 days on)?

    Hi, has anyone had experience of booking easyjet flights on release day using emirates air miles please?
    Are the flights available at the same time?
    Thanks

    Drinking water at Bristol airport
    I have to take tablets regularly, so this is important to me. All airports are now required to provide free drinking water, so ask staff if you can't find them (although, in my experience, staff often don't know where they are!) There have been drinking fountains at Bristol airport for a number of years but they are not neccessarily obvious. They are marked on maps of the airport (e.g. search 'bristol airport terminal map') - they are at the entrance to the toilets and at the start of the corridor to the departure gates from the mezzanine level.

    Delving for the first time into the murky world of seat release day tomorrow so after a few tips


    I've heard it's better just to book basic tickets on the flight we need to be on and then add bags/specific seats afterwards. Is this the right way to go about it?


    Any tips from veterans of this process much appreciated


    Thanks
    In deep...

    I've never had flights in my basket time out as such due to picking seats. From my experience, once you've selected a flight it's yours at that price and won't change during the paying process.

    Got flights this morning to Israel for passover (peak period). Was online within a minute of tickets released, basket said total for 6 flights Inc bags, seats was £3250. Pressed pay now, got a popular that my reserved seats had been taken by someone else. Passed no to rebook different seats, and got confirmation of booking with cost of £3600! Surely that is illegal??

    In reply to the person trying to book flights from Manchester to Gran Canaria...
    If you're signed in to the EasyJet website, try signing out to see if that makes a difference. Please let me know if it does.

    Charged twice!
    The EasyJet app failed at the payment stage and said couldnít process and to try again. I did as instructed and now Iíve been charged twice! And there I was congratulating myself on getting up early and saving money only to land myself with a shed load of hassle.
