How to get Ryanair change your name for only £10 or even free


This was previously posted on my blogspot site but I thought this website is a better place for it. If you arrived here through that site, then you already know that you have to call their customer service number, right? But would you rather keep reading and keep up with my rambling or you wanna jump to that number? Well, I heard you say, Nah, I wanna read the whole story. Go on then.

To have your name changed by Ryanair could cost you an arm and a leg when you actually only paid a toenail for the ticket.  You try to flip back and forth through their terms and conditions, FAQs and Help sections and you seem like playing hide and seek with a dodo.

Then you start to panic and stress out because your flight schedule is coming up and you dont seem to have a choice but to have your finger chopped. You blame and cuss and cuss and blame yourself for making that silly mistake. How could you misspell your (wife/husband/child/friend/mother/father)s name?And if youre like me you shed a bucketful of tears and wish you could sell it to your water provider help pay off the unexpected expense of another ticket or a name change whichever is lower.

But before you pull out that plastic from your wallet, you try just one more time to Google how to change your name for a much smaller fee. But Ryanair website doesnt seem to have an answer.  You read the forums and go to Yahoo answers and still do not have a way out.

But you cant give up just like that and so you check further down the Google search result and you stumble in my humble blog. You sort of hesitate if the title is really true or not but you want to give it a go. Perhaps, justperhaps, well, its your last straw.

What is this rubbish?, you exclaim when you see the opening sentence saying, This post has now been transferred to How to get Ryanair change your name for only £10 or even free. You scoff and sigh as you click the link to redirect you to this website.

At this point you want to grab me by the collar and growl at me, like a hungry wolf showing its foaming mouth, Just give me that bloomin number before I spin you around and throw you outside that bl***y window!! You know, like what Ms Trunchbull did to Matilda.

Hang on! Before you hit that little x on the top right corner of the window, calm down. Take 3 deep breaths. That will relax your tensed nerves. You have come this far to give up now. First, read this excerpt from the poem Dont Quit.

Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victors cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

No, you dont wanna be a loser, do you? You wanna be a victor, instead.

Congratulations! The answer has been found by you.

But before I finally give you the answer, can I say something else?


Ryanair Name Change Fee explained

The Name Change in Ryanairs Fee list means a new passengers name. But if it is the same person and it is just a spelling error or changing from married name to maiden name and vice versa, then it is called Amendment.

How to Contact Ryanair Customer Service

By Phone

Call this customer service number 0871 246 0000* which costs 10p/minute as they say but actually 22p when I checked my phone bill. Depending on the staff on duty, they might ask you to send a fax of your passport and marriage certificate or they might do it while youre on the phone for free or for a small admin fee of £10.

If they ask you to fax something, send it to this number: 00 35318 121 649

*Please note, this is a UK premium number and if you are calling from abroad it will cost you an arm and a leg.

Try this number instead +353 1 812 1212 and dont tell them you are calling from outside the UK otherwise they might direct you to a premium number in your country.

By Email

Go Ryanair website and follow this step.
