RYANAIR has issued a travel update for Brits with flights next week.

The low-cost airline is one of the strictest with passengers checking in before their flight.

Anyone who fails to do so has to pay £55 at the airport to check in before their flight.

Ryanair has issued a warning for passengers with flights next week that the website and app will be undergoing maintenance – meaning people won't be able to check in online.

They said: "Due to planned maintenance, Ryanair website/app will be temporarily down from 8pm on Wednesday, 19 October to 5am on Thursday, 20 October.

"Customers who are due to fly during this 9-hour period should check -in online before 6pm on Wednesday, 19 October."

Ryanair states on their website that it is free to check in for flights, with Flexi Plus passengers given 60 days and everyone else given 24 hours before their flight.

Some people have already been caught out by the strict £55 check-in fee.

One woman tweeted: "I spent hours yesterday trying to get through customer service as I couldn't check in online, and couldn't get through.

"Today I had to pay £55 for airport check in despite explaining the situation. Extremely disappointed."

Another said: "You charged me £55 (550 MAD) to check-in yesterday in Marrakech airport (because your app wasn’t working)."

Make sure you have printed your boarding pass or have it on your phone – failure to do so will include a fine of £20.

You will need to print your boarding pass for some destinations, such as Turkey, Morocco and Kefalonia in Greece as they don't accept mobile passes.

The airline also has strict rules when it comes to their hand luggage allowances.
