Avoid booking fees with prepaid credit cards

Published on 1 January 1970 by Raffick Marday

A no-frills airline’s been slammed by the Office of Fair Trading for advertising fares without mentioning the cost of booking by credit and debit card.

Ryanair charges £5 per person per flight, adding £40 to the cost of a holiday for a family of four, unless you pay with a Mastercard prepaid card.

Until last month the free option had been to use an Electron card, but in December Ryanair switched it to the new pre-paid cards.

A legal loophole means the airline can legally advertise flights without mentioning the payment fees that everyone except pre-pay customers will incur.
