Just learned a little tip today about flight booking and I thought I’d share it. In honesty, I kind of had a suspicion this was going on.
If you go to check out flight prices on the Ryanair website and then return at a later time to book the flight, the price will almost certainly have risen, this is because, via cookie tracking, Ryanair already knows you’re interested. However, if you delete your cookies, you should be able to get the initial price and hopefully save yourself some money.
It’s a little bit cheeky really and I don’t know other instances of cookies being used in this way. I think this might be the case on other low cost airlines too, such as BMI Baby and I definitely wouldn’t put this kind of behaviour past Easyjet either.
You can find out how to delete your cookies here and if you are travelling, you might like to consider a Halifax Clarity Credit Card too.
Happy travels. x
