I got a voucher for €150 for my birthday last June with a 1 year expiry. I could book a flight for later in the year (for when?). Without knowing when normal service will resume have Ryanair extended the term of validity of their vouchers or should I book before June and just reschedule if air travel is not back to normal by the time I'm due to travel?

Interesting question. As the voucher was purchased before the change in the law, I'm not sure if the new five-year expiry rule applies. Perhaps existing vouchers were grandfathered in?

If I were devious (!), I might perhaps book a flight for €150 to somewhere for late April/early May and then wait for the inevitable cancellation and full refund...

They might refund the purchaser and not me :eek:

I have vouchers that run out in December 2020. What happened with your vouchers?

I used my gift vouchers that were purchased in summer 2019 before Christmas. Flights then cancelled last Spring. I asked for cash back. They refused. Would only issue new gift vouchers in their place. The new vouchers issued to me, September 2020, only had a 4 month, use by date. I have contacted Ryanair about this and they have ignored my correspondence.

Referred to CCPC who are having a look at it.

I'm sure over the next 6 months there will be many people who's vouchers will be expiring and with the current situation I don't think many will be flying it them

I accepted a voucher in June 2020 and the expiry date is May 21. So not bad really and it suits me.
