To boost their revenue Ryanair is changing their free online check-in policy.
Previously free online was available from 7 days to 2 hours ahead of departure.
From 1st November 2016 this will reduce from 4 days to 2 hours ahead of departure.
This means if you are going away for more than 4 days the only way to check-in for free will be either via mobile app (which is not always reliable).
Or you can check-in and print off your boarding pass in the local internet cafe.
Overall, not a big deal but major inconvenience for which people will certainly pay extra now.
