Does anyone if once you buy a one-way ticket with Ryanair, you can add the other leg at no extra charge? (apart from the cost of the ticket of course)

Yes, it would be two single tickets (if that's what you mean?)

All Ryanair tickets are single one way tickets. You can buy any ticket you choose, but yes, if you have already bought a (for example) Liverpool to Dublin ticket, you can buy a Dublin to Liverpool ticket just by going on the website.

Thanks chatwoo and BarbaraofSevillle

Sorry I was not clear - I know I can buy the other single ticket separately, but as Rynair also charges per transaction I thought I could somehow add it to the same transaction, if that makes any sense?!?

Charges per transaction? I don't understand. What 'transaction' charges are there - I've never noticed any, but if there are, I doubt that you'l be able to add a second ticket to an already completed transaction to avoid them.

I have no idea what you mean. If you want a return you buy a return. If you want 2 singles you buy 2 singles. If you want to buy the outbound separately from the inbound you need to buy singles. What's the charge per transaction thing?

You mean the payment fee?

No, you wouldn't be able to add another payment on later for a return flight without paying that again - it's charged per payment, so you'd need to pay for everything in one go to only be charged once.

Yes, exactly what AnchorDownDeepBreath said

I always get confused as Ryanair and Easyjet deal with this differently

What's the payment fee?

AnchorDownDeepBreath Tue 15-Jan-19 10:37:57

What's the payment fee?

You pay a fee when you pay on Ryanair - something like 0.5% for debit cards, 1.2% on credit cards.

potatoscone Tue 15-Jan-19 10:40:57

Oh fgs. Seriously?

BarbaraofSevillle Tue 15-Jan-19 10:42:03

Are you sure there's a payment fee on Ryanair? As I said above, I've never noticed it and the last time we flew with them was only a few months ago.

But if it's a percentage, it doesn't matter anyway, because, well, it's a percentage, so two flights are always going to cost proportionally more than one, however you book it.

BarbaraofSevillle Tue 15-Jan-19 10:45:48

This suggests that you only pay a fee if you use a corporate or non EEA card, and it's a percentage anyway, so the cost is the same whether both flights are on the same or separate bookings.

IamAporcupine Tue 15-Jan-19 11:22:29

I was convinced it was a flat fee not a percentage, hence the question!

It was a long time ago - it used to be £6 per person per leg (so cost our family of four £48 to pay, then more recently it was a flat rate to pay by credit card (£3?), but free by debit card, I booked with Ryanair the other day and paid on my credit card as although I looked and looked and looked I couldn't see that this would be more expensive.

Thanks Janek

Walk it would be better than flying with Ryan air

We are flying into Sweden and out of Norway so 2 singles - second single is originally in Norwegian currency then converts so a bit over return price but not much.
