Easyjet - don't want to check in all passengers

I've booked flights with easyjet for 4 people, but only 3 of us are definitely going now, and one very likely isn't.

I've got a button saying 'check in all passengers' but don't know whether this will then give me an option to untick one passenger or will just check all of us in, which I don't want to do. I can't click it to check in case we're all checked in then and person 4 doesn't come!

I'm losing sleep over this (born worrier!) - can anyone help please?

Check everyone in and then one person doesn't turn up.

We had this when DS couldn't join us this summer. We couldn't have had a refund anyway so kept our options open.

So did you just tell them at the gate that one person wouldn't be boarding? I was worried they'd be looking for them otherwise!

You can only check in all of the group or none of you, but why would it matter if you check them in and they don’t turn up? Just tell staff on the day if the person isn’t coming so they can release the seat.

They won’t be looking for them as their boarding pass won’t have been scanned at the first check when you head into departures.

Thought you could do individuals as long as lead name is done first.

Ah, thanks for putting my mind at rest smile

Wish I could just go on holiday without worrying so much about everything!

But presumably you cannot later get the taxes refunded if you check them in.

I didn't think you could get a refund on easyjet? How would I find out how much tax was paid so whether it's worth looking into?

Our no show did get a refund but only with a doctors note.

Taxes would be refundable . Amount depends on destination

Years ago we checked in for a flight and were then unable to travel. By the time Ryanair had taken off their admin charges the refunded taxes amounted to less than £10 for flights that cost over £250.

Have you got seats pre-booked? If so is is possible to check in individually everyone who's travelling?

We told them at the gate.

Too much hassle to tell them online.
