I've been looking everywhere for a prepaid MasterCard as RyanAir is now begining to charge booking fees for the Electron card. There are several Prepaid Mastercards available for free with EURO and USD denominated currencies. These cards usually charge fees for transactions denominated in a currency other than EURO/USD. This card is GBP denominated so there should be no charges to book a return flight from the UK as the charge will be GBP denominated.
SELECT THE GOLBAL TRAVELLER CARD FOR THE GBP DENOMINATED CARD!
No Monthly Fees!
No Application Fees!
No Shop & Internet Usage Fees!
Free Int'l ATM use!
All UK transactions charged at £1.50.
Minimum load is £100.
I appologise if someone has posted a better solution, but I've had troubles finding anything. If there is a better option/deal posted, please let me know. Otherwise I hope this helps someone.
From the website:
Apply for a Caxtonfx Currency Card
You must be over 18, a permanent resident in the UK, and have a UK debit card.
You may apply for secondary cards for family members or friends as long as they are 13 or older.
The address that Caxtonfx holds for you must match the address your bank holds for you precisely.
We do not charge a fee for a primary card but we do take a £10 deposit when you apply. We add this to your overall
balance when you load your card for the first time.
There is a flat fee of £5 for a secondary card, this is not a deposit that will be added to your balance, it is a straightforward fee.
