Argh! Ryanair. Yes I just read about their erratic cancellations for the upcoming months.

Beauvais is really not in Paris at all but more than an hour and half drive from Paris. But Ryanair advertises this ( like here in Belgium where they say Charleroi is Brussels South ).
But there is a shuttle bus from Beauvais to Paris.
https://www.aeroportparisbeauvais.com/en/passengers/

Or you could take a regular train from Beauvais railstation to Paris Montparnasse or even maybe to Bayonne from where there is a connection to Saint Jean .
This could be an option....

I hope it works out.

What nightmare....

The 9:52 train is €115 each (too early to catch)
The 12:52 train is €230 each

Our original RyanAir flight was less then €50 each
There is something called "Bla Bla Car" leaving Paris 14:00 arriving SJPP 21:50 for $72

Welcome to the Camino improvise school!!

If you can get into Paris then to Orly you can find flights from there to Biarritz. Or follow the info given for the trains. I will fall back to the old reminder slow down take your time. The more time you give yourself to arrive the less stress. Once you begin to walk all you will need to worry about is following yellow arrows & your body staying healthy. No rush. It will work out. just remember don't be afraid to communicate. Get google translate on your phone great tool.

I've no idea of your ages but if you are over 60 you can get a senior discount on French trains. (If memory serves me right it's about 1/3 off regular fares. ) You don't need to have a special senior rail card for this. Probably would not be worth investing in a French senior rail card which gives bigger discounts but the regular senior tickets are worth having if you are 60 plus. Spanish senior rail cards are about €6 and can be bought at Spanish train stations, I definitely recommend these for over 60s.

Sorry to hear this. They do as they please and leave the customers in the cold.
Hope everything will work out for you.

Wish you a wonderful time and a Buen Camino,Peter.

Sorry to read this and cannot suggest an alternative to get you to St. Jean. Ryanair have an obligation to provide an alternative flight - so you will be able to claim compensation which may go some way in defraying your costs> See this article from todays BBC news:

A Dublin News Paper says RyanAir has canceled 182 flight (so far) stranding 36,000 passengers.
They charge €0.15 per minute to call them. Their internet “Chat Line” is so plugged it doesn't work.

We have opted for the familiar, this being our third Camino.

So.... We booked (at our expense)
Vueling Air to Barcelona
Can't find a Hotel in Barcelona for less then €150, so a night in Barcelona Airport.
Renfe Train to Pamplona
Hotel in Pamplona
Bus to SJPdP

We have 8 hours in Dublin Airport. With any luck, I can make it to the front on the RyanAir Customer Service line and present them with our Bill.

Sad to hear you have so much trouble and worries before even starting your Camino. But better before than after ;)

I did some checking on flight tickets from TB to Biarritz on 21/22 Sept and came out with the sum of 779€ one person/one way. Just nosy how much will you pay for that trip with this new flights you had to book?

Can't help with your arrangements but your cancellation was the tip of the iceberg for Ryanair. It has cancelled 100's of flights citing spurious reasoning and it has hit the news in the UK bigtime.
Hope you have kept your receipts. Do some research. You may/should be able to claim your additional costs back. Regards

Are there any other Ryanair flights sets available on a different day at a reasonable cost? I know you have had your fingers burnt but assuming you have no booked nights on the Camino this may be the simplest solution.:mad:
