Taking the advice of a post some time back, I obtained a Gift Card from the Barclays web site. The card costs £3, and you pre-load it with an amount limited (I think) to £200. The card clearly states Visa Electron on the front so I anticipated no problem. However when I tried to use this as an Electron card on the Ryanair web site it would not accept it. Am I just unlucky, or have Ryanair tightened their conditions - the card is not reloadable so could be argued to not be a 'real' Electron card (whatever that is).
Can anyone advise of an alternative card that I can acquire, without taking out another bank account, which is currently being accepted as an Electron card by Ryanair.
