Monarch scraps debit card surcharges1 June 2011
Monarch Airlines has scrapped debit card surcharges in a bid to win business from budget rivals like Ryanair and Easyjet.
The British-based airline, which is currently undergoing a major rebrand, said there was ‘no justification‘ for advertising one price and then stinging customers with hidden charges when they come to pay for their flights.
Monarch said it would no longer be charging extra for any bookings made with debit cards, but that credit card payments would still incur a flat fee of Â£10 per booking. However, the airline claims to be in negotiations with credit card companies to reduce that fee further.
