Bloody Ryanair

Remember the tax increase that the government imposed on Spanish airports?

It seems that Ryanair have decided that passengers should pay it and have written to those who booked before 1st July to tell them their credit cards will be debited for the amount.

So how much are we talking about?

In the case of Alicante – 1.92 Euros: Murcia – 1.72 Euros and Valencia – 1.87 Euros. The passengers at Madrid Barajas and Barcelona El Prat are the worst effected because they will pay 9.12 and 8.95 Euros respectively.

Pamela and I booked flights to and from Barcelona but made the booking on the 3rd so we will have already paid the extra tax. This is the first time we will have flown with Ryanair and it will hopefully be the last! Their booking system is a minefield where you have to opt out of things like insurance rather than opt in and the final price is a massive hike on the advertised price.
