For customers in Germany ONLY, SEPA direct debit payments can be accepted up to 10 days prior to the flight passengers included in the same flight reservation when checking-in together.


Card Verification Number (CVV)

Ryanair take online security very seriously. That’s why we require that you enter your credit/debit card verification number (CVV) or card identification number (CID) for American Express cards before we can process your payment.

The CVV is the last three digit number printed on the signature panel located on the back of your card.
The CVV/CID is a security feature that allows Ryanair and your credit card issuer to identify you as the cardholder and provide you with additional security against fraud.

Strong Customer Authentication

From 14 September 2019, you will be required to provide additional payment authentication details during the payment stage to approve your online payment (Strong Customer Authentication).
This is to comply with the new EU regulatory requirements to reduce fraud and increase security of your online payment transactions. For more information, please contact your card-issuing bank.
