At Ryanair, you are able to check-in online for free from 4 days prior to departure. Online check-in is mandatory. Not checking in online? Then Ryanair will charge additional fees at the airport. 

On most flights, you will have to verify yourself before you can check in online. During the verification process, you will link the booking to your personal Ryanair-account, which not only opens online check-in, but also gives you full access to adding services or changing your flights.
