More than one way to remove the outer covering from a feline

In July, the Office of Fair Trading in the UK told 12 airlines, including budget airline Ryanair, that they should not be charging an ‘admin fee’ to people paying by debit card because it was ‘unfair’ as such cards are effectively the same as paying cash.

Ryanair was charging customers £6 regardless of whether the card was debit or credit, except in the case where they paid with the airline’s own special pre-paid ‘Ryanair Cash Passport’.

As from November 30th, Ryanair has abolished the ‘unfair’ £6 charge to debit card users and is replacing it with…

A blanket £6 ‘website admin fee’ on all bookings plus a 2% charge for using a credit card.
