Ryanair extends €0 change fee for all bookings before 31 March
"Book now and if your plans change, so can your booking."
Ryanair has announced it is extending its €0 flight change fee for all customers who book flights before 31 March 2021.
It is also allowing up to two booking date moves until 31 October 2021.
Ryanair said it's aiming to give customers "greater peace of mind" when booking their Easter and summer 2021 holidays, when Ryanair believes air travel will re-open following the successful roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccines in the UK, Denmark and many other EU states.
A Ryanair spokesperson said: "If your plans change, so can your booking. To provide as much flexibility and confidence as possible for Ryanair customers, we have extended our €0 flight change fee for all bookings made in January, February and March.
"Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, Ryanair is now allowing up to two free flight date changes on all such bookings up until 31 October 2021.
"Customers can now book flights to see family and friends this Easter or book a well-deserved summer 2021 break with confidence knowing that if they need to postpone or change their travel dates, they can do so with a €0 change fee until the end of October 2021".
Currently, much uncertainty surrounds the prospect of overseas travel for the majority of the 2021.
As it stands, in Ireland, individuals are not permitted to travel outside of their 5km radius, preventing trips to the airport for non-essential travel. Speaking earlier this week, Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan said that current restrictions on travel may become stricter as time goes on.
Passengers arriving into Ireland without a negative PCR test in the 72 hours before arrival will have to stay in quarantine hotels for at least five days, under new plans expected to be approved by Cabinet today.
Speaking on Monday night, Leo Varadkar said: "We wouldn't want to open up flights before Christmas so people who maybe would like to take a summer holiday in August, people maybe would like to see relatives this Christmas they haven't seen, that would probably be off the agenda."
