Gain a full refund

I gained a full refund, however, I owned a non-refundable ticket. You might be wondering how. No need to be concerned; according to the Ryanair refund policy, a flight canceled during the lockdown would not incur cancellation fees.

Incredible plans to save more

I used to fly with Ryanair more often, and I've never had to postpone a scheduled flight. The in-flight services they provide are absolutely amazing; but, due to COVID, I was searching for Ryanair cancellation policy this time. This website was very helpful to me; thanks to it, I was able to more effectively comprehend the policies and save some money on the total sum.

Ryanair refund policy has been designed to help

I can confidently say that the Ryanair refund policy has been designed to help the passengers; unlike other airlines that keep fleecing you off your hard-earned money in the name of cancellation charges.

by Neil L. Wilson on Reservations Number
it was quite a good experience

Canceling an airline booking can be a nightmare. But, fortunately for me, it was quite a good experience as the Ryanair cancellation policy was quite easy to understand. I saved myself from shelling out cancellation charges by canceling the booking on time.

The customer agent was very nice

I canceled my Ryanair Airline ticket through reservationsnumber.org. And, it was the first time. I felt so accepted while canceling the flight, there was no fuss, the customer agent was very nice and supportive. So, in hospitality, the airline is at its finest. They helped me a lot to understand the cancellation and refund policy of Ryanair Air. The best part about reservationsnumber.org is that they do all the required steps by themselves and you just need to wait for the refund, if applicable. Unfortunately, in my case, the refund was not applicable as I canceled the flight 36 hours before the departure time. Nevertheless, I am very happy with reservationsnumber.org’s customer executives who helped me understand the process and did all the formalities on my behalf. They assisted me with the best solution and I am very happy. I am looking forward to booking tickets via this website.

The customer executive was very cooperative

During Covid-19, I booked Ryanair Airlines flight 737-800 from Budapest to Milan from. However, I had to cancel my flight because I was not feeling safe while traveling with the flight during COVID. I again contacted reservationsnumber.org customer executive and they understood my situation. They suggested some of the existing solutions based on the Ryanair Cancellation Policy. Ryanair Airline doesn't follow 24-hour cancellation policy. If you want a refund, you must cancel the flight 30 days before the departure schedule. However, there is no refund if you cancel the flight 1 day before the schedule. As I canceled the flight 40 days before the schedule, they helped me get a refund by paying a small amount of cancellation fee. The customer executive was very cooperative and handled the problem very well. I would suggest you all contact reservationsnumber.org for any issues related to Ryanair Airlines and they will surely help you in the best way possible.

Did'nt received refund for Cx flight

"I tried going on line as I did not receive my refund for this Cx flight. Your record showed I received the refund, but I have not. Since I booked the flight the credit card it was billed to was hacked, so I got a different credit card. The new number is Mastercard 5524860413218002. Exp. 4/24. Can this refund get redirected ?

Cancelation Due To Coronavirus

Dear Ryanair,
I would like to cancel my flight ticket from London to Porto and Barcelona to London. This is due to the seriousness of Corona Virus. As there is now 120 cases of corona virus detected in Spain, I would like to cancel my trip to Spain and Portugal. Moreover, I'm having my final exam of my university after the trip, I would not want to risk my life and have a bad experience while travelling in Spain and Portugal if I get infected by corona virus. My family are also very worry for me when Spain and Portugal is now seriously overwhelmed with corona virus. I am here to request refund for the flight cancellation because most of the airlines issue refund to their customer when the destination is a country seriously affected by corona virus. As the number of corona virus cases keep on increasing in Spain, it is not a good idea to have a trip there during this easter month. Attached is my flight information for me and my friend with reservation number K92Y9Q and S7WDJW. I really hope Ryanair will issue refund for my flight cancellation.
Thank you.

Best regards,
Lee Hao Hui.

To get any refund amount

My wife and I booked tickets from Rome Ciampino to Athens for 11th April 2020 (Reservation number: T53P** & D9S***). Email used for the bookings: vikrantwise@gmail.com

Due to change in my onward flight from Athens to Singapore, I had to book another tickets from Rome Ciampino to Athens for 10th April 2020 (Reservation number: VY4**Q & I3JD**).

Is there any way to get any refund amount out of these flight on 11th April 2020 as I had some add-on with the flights. Please suggest.

Please consider for any refund from the bookings : (T53P** & D9S***)

by rosa on Reservations Number

Refundable tickets are usually beneficial as they safeguard the refund value. But my pocket does not allow me to book refundable tickets, so I booked a non-refundable ticket but received a full refund in my wallet. Wondering why? Because I canceled my flight within the same day of booking, So as per 24 hour cancellation policy Ryanair awarded me a full refund.

Ryanair Cancellation

Hi everyone, I want to share my experience of flight cancelling with ryanair. If anyone asks me to rate then, I would rate 4 out of 5 stars for the ryanair services. I was satisfied with the guidance and information provided by the ryanair, the online cancellation process was not that difficult and I easily managed to get my tickets cancelled. Though, I had to pay the cancellation fee as per the terms and conditions as I did not cancel my ticket within the free 24-hour window.
