When does the offer start?

Booking for September flights will be opened on 3rd August.


Does the discount apply to every flight I book with Ryanair?

No. The offer is only available for 4 single flights booked, at least, 28 days before the date of the flight and being this within the 1st of September and the 15th of June.


Can I use this discount for flights that I have already booked?

Even if you have already booked flights for any date before getting ESNcard, the discount is not applicable as the flight has been booked before the launch of this partnership and/or not following the correct booking process through the dedicated booking platform.


Who can get access to the discount?

Every ESNcard holder properly registered in and with a valid membership is eligible for the offer. Membership is valid if the ESNcard has not expired. Please consider that the ESNcard is a membership card of the Erasmus Student Network and any member needs to be either a student or intern in a mobility programme or a volunteer of our Organization

How do I access the benefits?

In order to have access to the offer, you need to follow these instructions:

  • Get yourself an ESNcard, if you do not have one already.
  • Register at and activate your advantages by adding your ESNcard number (under the barcode) to your user profile.
  • Fill in all the information requested in your profile. This is really important, as it is used to identify the passenger as an ESNcard holder, hence, a person eligible for the discount and other perks.
