Default Online booking on Ryanair

So I am looking to book some flights as I have decided to go to Berlin (yay!) And the flights I got are pretty good but I was wondering if there is a way to book them without the £10 extra charge for online booking?

There is no way to avoid this fee unless you are using a visa electron card, but thats a limited time offer. Ryanair Fees

Remember fees and add on sales are how Ryanair makes its money. I take it you've never flown Ryanair before but you must know about their reputation. Basically the whole flight they are trying to sell you something from take off to landing.

I have flown Ryanair before-I remember getting a flight to "Brussels" and a flight to "Berlin" and a couple of other flights in between-its just something I always wondered. Its all good though, its still cheaper than anywhere else.

What dates are you looking to fly and from which airport? Ryanair may not even be the best option for you.

Yeah even with the fees, Ryanair is about 67 quid versus Air Berlin which is 121 quid. On Air Berlin, you'll get a nice little snack and won't have the flight attendants trying to hawk crap to you all the time, but for most people, that's worth saving 50 pounds.

Crap hawking Stewards/Stewardesses don't bother me as I can just wear my MP3 player, close my eyes and wake up in Berlin and tune them out.
Landing in Schoenfeld bugs me a little but again, as I recall its like €10 to Berlin so its still cheaper than easyjet or airberlin- thanks for looking up the flight though.

No problem. Schoenefeld has train service, both the S-Bahn and an express train - either one only costs 2,80 euro each way. Or you can get the day pass for 6-something.

What £10 booking fee?!!

When did they bring that in? I don't ever remember paying that, it sounds ridiculous is there no fee for booking over the phone?

I haven't flown with them in a while I'm an Aerlingus man meself. Their constantly doing all in deals if your dates are flexible.
