Again, the Irish carrier creates unnecessary passenger anxiety to have to find the Internet and a printer while on holiday to print the boarding pass for the next Ryanair flight. That must be done in the 4 days before departure (not 7 currently). Otherwise you face a FINE at check-in at the airport of £45. They sure know how to grab the money.

I know from experience what a nightmare it is to get the paper boarding pass done while away. And yes, Ryanair says a number of airports cannot accept the alternative, the mobile phone boarding pass as it is. At those airports you are well and truly stuffed.


thanks Admin for that useful post.  Lets hope word gets around on Crete, and enterprising business  put sign in their windows advertising they have a printer, albeit at a charge &/or for paying customers. A talking point at the start of a holiday to ensure one knows where to go in the final days.

I was taken aback last year one of our pop in places a large internet Cafe had closed due to lack of business as so many people now using free WiFi in varying places or had their own cheap sim.

I suspect most car hire places would have a printer, I would offer a Euro per booking or something along those lines for the favour, have the coins read, don't be rude and offer a 50 Euro expecting them to change it up (yes I know a Euro around a £).  It never ceases to amaze me people who do not spend in a business expect to use toilets etc for free, they have to pay to empty tanks as well as keeping them clean.

Common sense if you are booking a car with them for a week or so (or even less), to check if they can help you out with the print out later, whether they accept a donation or not for the cost when they do it for you play by ear.
If you are not doing a booking then definitely you should offer to pay, donate a little something.

Cretan hospitality does vary.  I had often heard of people being stuck somewhere late evening, looking for taxi a short distance (less than 10 miles) and someone recognizing them as a previous customer, shop or restaurant, then getting one of their staff or relatives to give them a lift for free, as no taxi available.  Personally I would have insisted they take a little something unless no small note to cover at least the cost of petrol on arrival destination, particularly if knew would not have time to go back to use that shop/restaurant again during trip.

Ryanair - Another £45 Inconvenience

Again, the Irish carrier creates unnecessary passenger anxiety to have to find the Internet and a printer while on holiday to print the boarding pass for the next Ryanair flight. That must be done in the 4 days before departure (not 7 currently). Otherwise you face a FINE at check-in at the airport of £45. They sure know how to grab the money.

Ryanair will soon charge for online check-in if made more than four days before departure.

Ryanair will be charging passengers £6 each to check-in more than four days before flights. This means holidaymakers spending more than 4 days abroad, will need to check-in online and print their boarding pass during their trip, to avoid the fee. The change comes into force on 1st November 2016.

The change applies to both new and existing bookings. Those with existing bookings who are unwilling to accept the change, are allowed to cancel their reservation free of charge. The new rule contradicts Ryanair’s “Always Getting Better” slogan – as well as recent efforts to improve its no-frills reputation.

Ryanair’s, Kenny Jacobs said: “From 1st November, we’re offering those customers who wish to reserve seats more time to choose their preferred seat, by reducing the check-in window from 7 to 4 days pre-departure for those customers who prefer a random seat." (Notice the double speak -  the quote does not make sense. Ryanair is doing a favour to passengers by shortening the window of opportunity to do what is necessary?)

Treat fairly, those who treat you fairly. To shout is a sign of weakness. Confucious may have said: "Don't be easily hurt or offended. Take a deep breath, count to 10. Log off and make a cup of tea.
