RyanairTalk seeks to cut roaming charges for passengers

Ryanair has announced the launch of RyanairTalk, a smartphone app which allows Ryanair passengers avoid roaming charges from their network providers and to enjoy cheap calls home when travelling and cheap international calls when at home.

RyanairTalk enables users to make cheap calls direct from their smartphone to any landline or mobile via wi-fi or 3G internet connections and while European network providers continue to charge up to €0.35 per minute for international calls and roaming charges, with RyanairTalk, customers can call any mobile phone in Europe for as little as €0.13 per minute, saving over 65 per cent on their bills.

Calls to landlines offer even greater value, with rates as low as €0.03 per minute, giving savings of over 90 per cent.

Ryanair passengers can now download the free RyanairTalk app for their iPhone or Android enabled phone and make cheap calls instantly.

To celebrate the launch of the service, Ryanair is giving away ten minutes of free mobile calls (or 40 minutes free landline calls) to the first 50,000 customers who download the app.

Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely said: “Ryanair already delivers Europe’s lowest airfares, as well as the guaranteed lowest and hotel room rates (on RyanairHotels.com).

“Now Ryanair passengers can continue to save money and enjoy cheaper phone bills by using RyanairTalk, which is available to download through the Ryanair.com website, Google Play and the iPhone app store.”
