The launch of Ryanair‘s new pre-paid card which will become the only way to avoid the airline’s booking fees has been branded an ‘insult‘ to customers.
From November passengers must book with the MasterCard Cash Passport to escape a £6 each way surcharge.
But Which? said it was a bad deal and warned customers they would be charged £2.50 a month if they did not use the card for more than six months.
‘Ryanair is making it even more difficult to avoid paying the fees,’ said a spokesman for the consumer watchdog. ‘Before, you had to use any pre-paid MasterCard – now they’re narrowing it even further.’
