    Why don`t people (as usual) read the T&C ?

    The Ryanair Cash Passport will deliver the following benefits for cardholders:

    · The card purchase fee of £6 will be reimbursed to Ryanair passengers since each cardholder will receive a £6 Ryanair travel voucher. There will be no admin fees on any Ryanair bookings.
    · No transaction fees will be levied on cardholders for any payments made on the Ryanair.com website.
    · As a special introductory offer for all Ryanair cardholders, there will be no transaction fees on any UK purchases until 31st March 2012.
    · The Ryanair Cash Passport offers a convenient and secure way to carry money abroad, make purchases and make ATM withdrawals.
    · Free card top-ups can be made at www.cashpassport.com/ryanair.

    Stop moaning and just get one.

    People have been reading the T&C and found plenty not to like - e.g. £150 minimum loading, 5.75% on purchases not in sterling, fees for non-use. Neither this move, nor the Ryanair website which states 'low fares are available' when they aren't, are fair trading. It is more than time for the OFT to impose a stiff fine.

    Min loading £150, the card can be used ANYWHERE in the UK not just for Ryanair:

    As a special introductory offer for all Ryanair cardholders, there will be no transaction fees on any UK purchases until 31st March 2012.


    5.75% on purchases not in sterling: plenty of places to buy foreign currency at better rates.

    Fees for non use: provide a link.

    People will be queuing up for this card and MSE will be encouraging it.

    Taken from another post so no link but apparently applies to the ryanair card


    Monthly inactivity fee debited from your Card if it has not been used for 6 months £2.50


    I dont get why people are still standing up for the underhand tactics that Ryanair use
  • Ryanair deserve to go bust with this sort of attitude. Personally ive only ever flown with them once, they are a disgrace to the airline industry and as for O'Leary dont get me started.

    All my flight bookings start from spain,.so will i be charged 5.75% for all my bookings in euros?...or will i select the currency on screen to pounds?....that way i will pay more as euros cost less than pounds but the price in euros/pounds displayed for the flights is the same.
    Political?....I dont do Political....well,not much!

    Why don`t people (as usual) check links before posting them? :D

    Not having a go at you because you probably cut-and-pasted from ryanair.com. The link on the Ryanair website produces the same result. :p

    ...But if you load it from a GBP account they'll be a 5.75% transaction fee. :D
  • Lufthansa have started playing silly beggars as well. They have gone from being a first class airline, offering good prices in their regular "sales", to adding payment surcharges, advertising cheap prices that you can't find and don't get me started on the quality of their "meals".
