Hey you guys in England, is this for real? http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/

Free tickets on Ryan Air from the UK to various places in Europe. Last week they were only 5 pounds each way, now they are free? TGTBT

It's for real, but the key is to purchase your tickets early. The taxes will make the end price closer to 50 or 60 quid (round trip)

The airports they fly into aren't the major airports, so you'll end up renting a car or paying bus/train fare to get to the major cities.

Well, fares are back up to 5 pounds each way, and the website says the fares are inclusive of all fees and taxes.

You'd have to pay bus/train fare to get to the major cities from the major airports also. I'm probably not going to do this, but I was wondering how they can offer such low fares. I figured that it's either a scam or they have some hefty government subsidies over there...

its all correct guys, friend of mine uses them regularly he's got a place in italy, so no problem for accomodation, what you really have to do is not be tied to certain dates you want to fly, he regularly got the flights for a couple of pounds each way untill a month ago now he,s getting there and back for about 20 ($15) dont know how the airlines are doing it guess there just filling up the plane.
