Ryanair continues to be the exclusive partner of the Erasmus Student Network, offering Erasmus students huge savings, with fare discounts, free bags and tailored travel offers. All you need is a valid ESNcard! 

What do lucky ESNcard owners get?

  1. 15% discount on 8 single flights (or 4 return flights).
  2. Free check-in luggage of 20kg with each of these 8 flights booked.
  3. Weekly travel offers for Erasmus students.
  4. Tailored Ryanair in-journey offers on the mobile app.


In order to claim the discount, you must be a holder of an activated and valid ESNcard. Get it from ESN Helga!

Once you have received your ESNcard, make sure to follow the next steps:

  1. Register in ESNcard.orgAs this data will be used to validate your ESNcard during your flight booking process, please, remember to fill in all the blanks in your user profile - also your ESNcard number.
  2. Go to myRyanair and sign-up (or log-in if you already have an account).
  3. Add your details in the "Erasmus" tab of your myRyanair dashboard.
    Make sure that they match your ESNcard user profile data (use the same names, pay attention to typos, etc.). 
  4. Wait until your ESNcard and other details are validated. This is not live validation, so it might take a few days.
  5. Once it is validated, use the booking widget at the bottom of the Erasmus section of your myRyanair dashboard to make your bookings at a discounted rate. Only bookings made using this widget will be considered for the discount, so make sure you do not use the normal booking engine of Ryanair or any other booking systems.


Once your user profile is updated and your ESNcard is valid, you can book your Ryanair flights to any destination offered.
Keep in mind that you should book your tickets at least 28 days in advance* and that the offer applies to the dates between the 1st September and 15th June*.
