Ryanair Cash Passport

The world’s most annoying airline, Ryanair, has been found out when it comes to the use of the carrier’s new compulsory charge card, allegedly the cheapest way to book a seat on the airline.

The user guide for the Ryanair Cash Passport reveals that after six months, anyone who does not use the card will be charged £2.50 a month for inactivity, while a £10 invoice will be made every time the card goes into negative territory because of the inactivity fee.  The more you don’t use it the larger the bill!

The list of fees is quite comprehensive.  Besides the ones listed above you can be charged for ATM use (£2), actual use of card when purchasing fee (£0.50), cash over the counter (£4), cash out card fee at a bank (£4), cash out fee through Card services (£6), and the addition of a further card (£6).

If you are caught out abroad and need to get cash, beg or borrow.  ATM withdrawals in a currency other than the currency of the Card will be exchanged to the currency on the Card at an exchange rate determined by MasterCard on the day the transaction is processed, increased by 5.75%. www.ryanair.com
