If it happens, the air ticket will no longer be so cheap. Changing the name on a ticket, as well as the date, time and destination has a penalty.
Beginning with Ryanair, the date, time and route can be changed, according to availabilities and subject to payment of a charge per flight leg and per person.
This is EUR 25.00 if the change is made online, and EUR 45.00 if done through their reservations centre.
In both cases, any difference between the original price paid for the flight and the minimum price available at the moment of booking will also be charged, whereas, if the total price is lower than what was originally paid, no refund will be made.
There is a fee of EUR 65.00 for changing the name on a ticket.
Myair have the same services, but different prices: changes made to an issued ticket are charged EUR 25.00, with the exception of the “Myflex” tariffs (the highest and most recommended in this category at the moment of booking) that allow you to change bookings without any penalties or price differences on the tickets.
Wizzair indicates the penalties on its website: for a name change the fee is EUR 30.00, and EUR 28.00 for changes to flights made online, and EUR 35.00 through their call centre.
EUR 25.00 is charged for any changes made, always per leg and per person, by SkyEurope and Jet2.com (with an additional charge for any difference in tariff), and the fee rises to EUR 30.00 with Virgin Express.
