In protest to Gordon Brown's increase in air tax, ryanair are giving out free flights. I'm all for green taxes, but come on, free flight :D

however this offer is only available until tomorrow, so get booking

So you put your principles aside for a free flight? Least you could have done is try to get one for yourself, and not give Ryanair any further free publicity :(

maybe free...but they just hike up the taxes so one still really pays the same price...unless you fly at poxy times on poxy days were you might be able to get a half decent deal...other than that free flights for me mean noubt...

the thing with free flights is, that it only works for a certain time...eg
fly out on friday night at 9pm!!! who wants to fly at 9pm? on a friday?
and come back on sunday morning at 8am....more of a waist of time.

No, the total flight is free!
And you would be surprised how many people visit a city for just a day, to go shopping or something.

Last february I was in Germany for a week, the ryanair flight was 27 euros taxes included for a round trip. I don't think there are better deals..

maybe...but the thought of been on a flight of anything between 2-4 hours would be off putting! plus if your from ireland / uk then other countrys are anything between 1-2 hours a head! which means you lose more even time.

travelling for 1 day isnt ideal, thats like me flying to london for a day...i wouldnt get to see much at all...

maybe if someone wants to christmas shop for a day then fine...

It surely is not my kind of way to travel or visit places either. And most destinations served by ryanair are crap anyway

well i know the taxes wouldnt be levied just because of this, and i cant get a ticket myself since the offer is only availabel for if you wish to fly during non-peak times, ie, when im in school :(

Wow.
But u dont need to be in too much of a hurry, to buy. Ryan air often sell tickets, for one cent. And they have been talking for quite a while, about making all their flights free of charge.

But, tell us where u bought flights to.

Taking a ryanair flight doesn't mean you have to spendonly 1 day in one city. It can be a very good way to reduce the cost of a longer one, like a 2 weeks trip.
