A RYANAIR passenger has revealed how to save up to £50 on your flights without skipping luggage – and everyone was astounded by this clever trick.
Tiktok user Clóda Scanlon shared a video explaining how you can save money when you book flights through the Ryanair app.
She started by booking her flights as usual, filling in the location, date and number of passengers.
The app then gave her the option to add priority boarding, one carry-on and one 10kg baggage, for €21 per person, per journey.
The final total was 192.76 €. However, instead of switching to the app’s billing section, she opted to use the airline’s Value Fare instead of the regular Fare advertised by the app.
The Value Fare comes with one small carry-on baggage while the Regular Fare comes with priority boarding and two carry-on baggage.
When Clóda chose Value, the app removed the €21 bags she had previously added because she was no longer entitled to the bags.
But when she clicked through to the next page, the app gave her the opportunity to add the same perks she would get with Regular Fare – priority boarding, hand luggage and 10kg luggage – but this time it’s €13, which is €8 cheaper than last time.
She added the bags and went to the final checkout stage and the price dropped from €192.76 to €133.56 – saving €59.20 (£49.70).
TikToker, who uses the handle @orangeobtionarysaid: “I almost paid €192 and instead of paying for identical flights and identical luggage, I would have paid only €133.”
“Take small luggage, fare value, and then go to the end. Same baggage was almost 50% less.”
The video has been viewed 980,000 times and received hundreds of comments from people hyped by the tip.
One person wrote: “Omg, I just saved £50-60 on my family holiday! Game changer.”
Another said: “I do this all the time. It has saved me a lot of money over the years.”
Another said that Ryanair was ‘tricking’ customers by changing the price of extra luggage. They write: “I do this all the time – they trick a lot of people in other ways.”
Another agreed, writing: “I noticed this completely by accident when booking my last flight with them. Can’t believe how sneaky they are.”
A woman has revealed how she always has a Free in-flight extra bag.
And one frequent flyer revealed how you can always Weigh your luggage for free before you check in, so you can avoid a hefty bill.
