A court in Germany has granted an interim injunction preventing a screenscraping website from making claims that it can provide the cheapest fares on Ryanair flights.

Ryanair claimed eDreams was engaging in unlawful and misleading advertising in connection with the sale of its flights. 

The Hamburg Court prohibited eDreams from advertising claims that it offers the guaranteed best price on all flights on their German website. 

Ryanair argued that as it's levying an extra fee on top of Ryanair's fares, eDreams could not advertise with a price guarantee on booked flights.

Ryanair has been engaged in several legal cases against screenscraper websites across Europe.

The airline says it's to prevent their customers from being subjected to extra charges.
