Basically; for those of us that do not have an electron card the fees for booking a Ryanair flight are huge!
However there is a way round this. Barclays issue Electron gift cards (that can be ordered online) for a flat fee of £3. You can top up to £300 on it and use at any retailer that accepts electron, inluding online. Therefore if you are a regular Ryanair passenger simply purchase one of these cards and then use it to book flights - works out a lot cheaper!
