Avoid paying the Ryanair £5 debit and credit card fee by using Visa Electron

Update 6 December 2009: From 1 Janaury 2010 the only payment  card which will not incur the Ryanair £5 per person per person per flight admin fee is the Mastercard prepaid debit card.

You can use your Visa Electron card until 31 December 2009 to avoid the Ryanair fees.  From 01/01/10 payment by Visa Electron will be liable to the £5 per person per flight charge.


For several years you have been able to avoid the Ryanair payment fees by paying with a Visa Electron card.  However Ryanair did always state that this was a linited offer.
