    Crikey - the stress of booking a Ryanair flight !

    Going through endless screens of options for extra insurance, travel bag offers, hotels, cars, priority booking then hitting the button and being frozen with fear that you've spelt one of the names wrong ! My missus' surname on passport is her maiden name and I was one click away from confirming the booking. Went back in again and price had gone up £16 ! Is it worth the stress !!!

    They are the cheapest though !

    The more people who are discouraged from booking Ryanair, the better

    If you think the website's bad now, you should have used it a few years ago. For starters, the drop-down list of destinations was in no logical order whatsoever. It was like a game of Where's Wolly, but Where's my Destination?

    They can even ruin a spotting session when there are too many of them. Same old boring scheme and no variety of aircraft type. Why can't they do a few special schemes ? !

    Nearly booked a package holiday involving Ryanair flights recently (though not directly through them) till it came to the baggage options, which were either no bags at all, or paying for all 4 of of us (inc a 2y/o and a 6 y/o) to have bags. No way would it just let me book one or two bags. Gave up in disgust and went elsewhere.

    One has to be careful of that with package holidays. Sometimes, Ryanair is the only option even on some quite upmarket packages.

    I would rather not go on that particular package than fly Ryanair. For me, that is a deal-breaker.

    No, it is not worth the stress. I'd rather not go, than go with Ryanair.

    My parents flew with them last year. They vowed never again. I could only say "Told you so!".
