Advantages: a focus on fast turnaround, cheap offers, clean, no hassle, excellent punctuality
Disadvantages: for ANY extras prepare to PAY, no frills,
I have travelled with Ryanair several times over the years and frequently travel with other budget airlines. I think I am well placed to give a measurable opinion on it.
Watch out for - hand luggage, take only one piece and make sure it fits in the cages - they are strict about this. Do your research on where the airport actually is...the airports can be a significant distance from the cities - just make sure the transport links are regular, economical and are not too far away.
Be prepared for a scramble to be first in line as seats are not allocated, personally though I have been last in the queue and still sat with my group of four - if it's a worry get priority boarding
If you make any mistakes on the booking and need to call and change they will fleece you! It's apparently £1 a min to the call centre.
If you've got only hand luggage opt for online check in - it's less time to hang about at airport and you will save money. It can be done 14 days in advance.
Go for it! Just be savy!
Summary: a great way to see places on the cheap
