    Can someone just confirm to me issues I have surrounding checking in. I booked flight back in Feb (Birmingham to Reus June 3rd) and paid for airport check in as we're taking one checked in baggage item with us, so had no choice but to do this. Now there's a little confusion with the fazing out of airport check in.

    1) Can I carry on to airport and everything will be ok as I've paid for airport check in?

    2) On checking my flight online with Ryanair it seems to be giving me the option of on line check in. Can I do this as I've paid for airport check in, and will it cost me anything and would I gain anything from doing it?

    Regards

    Was it really necessary to add the final sentence? :confused:

    The OP asked a simple question, he wasn't railing at how Ryanair 'rip' people off or 'scam' them.

    :confused: Hello newbie speaking so forgive any poor protocol please..
    My question is related to Ryan air and the required 'photographic identity'.
    I booked a flight at the end of June (destination within the uk) online. I knew I needed change the name on my passport ( It is not the same as the one I use now and that I booked the flight in). It is the only photographic ID that I have. I have very limited time now and feared that I wouldn't get it back in time for my flight .So have not sent it off.
    Ryan air says you won't be allowed into the country of destination without it. and that I can change my name by phone calling a number which is I think costs 1 per minute. I have called a number of times and to date I have not got a reply.
    any suggestions? There are Two issues: The cost of hanging on to an unawered phone,Is that being charged to me?
    and more importantly What should I do about the names not being the same on my passport and flight reservation. Thank you for any help.

    You don't actually have to call them to do a name change - it can be done online (but it will cost 100). It costs 150 if you do it by telephone. So it might be cheaper to just book a new flight.

    You *might* have some success trying to call them and explain the situation, and hoping that they'll do the name change for free. Contrary to what many people have said I've found the Ryanair call centre people polite and helpful. No guarantees here but you might be lucky - no harm in trying. Please see this post on the subject of calling Ryanair without paying 1/minute: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showpost.html?p=21107515&postcount=2 (see the international callchecker on this site for details of discount call providers).

    I'm not sure I understand your post completely, but you seem to refer to a passport application that you didn't send off - is this the one that would correspond to the flight you booked with Ryanair? If so, you still have a month to apply for it - why not pay extra for the faster service? It's cheaper than a name change with Ryanair.
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks
    On a rotating plate, with spikes like Flash Gordon
    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning
  • fluffychick
    thanks Steve that is certainly one option..
    I have changed my name before, you would think I would have learned wouldn't you? I was charged extra then but not a great deal about 6, but don't know if that is still possiible to do. I forgot about the passport problem that's the trouble!. I am hoping that someone may have recent experience of this issue too.
