Airmiles Cash Passport + 50 Bonus Airmiles (For those who want an Visa Electron Card to avoid EasyJet booking fees)

It has been more and more difficult to get a Visa Electron card and most budget airlines require it in order NOT to pay booking fees. Now Airmiles is having this offer and if you load £600 before the 15th Sept 2010 you get 50 bonus airmiles.

This may not be good for many but will be extremely helpful for people who travel EasyJet a lot and have been paying all the ridiculous booking fees!

ryanair dont take electron anymore to avoid fees-its a prepaid mastercard. Never knew easyjet didnt charge fees with an electron tho?

Yea Ryanair has stopped as they opted for the even less available card! But Easyjet and majority of other no frill airlines still do not charge with Electron.

You can buy a prepaid Mastercard (cashplus) at many newsagents and there are literally dozens of them on the web, including many of those listed as best value on MSE. My experience is that prepaid Mastercards are anything but "less available".

I think he meant a less "in-use" card. If you survey 1000 people on the street, chances are that nobody will have a pre-paid mastercard on them - and are they really going to order one just to avoid fees

I've been waiting for someone to be able to tell me this!! So if you load money into the Visa Electron card using a Barclaycard (credit card) you won't be charge a penny (no card handling fees from Visa Electron AND cash advance fees freom Barclaycard)?

In the Visa Electron t&c page it says it won't charge the handling fees but say Barclaycard (or any of your card issuer) may charge a cash advance fees.

Hi
i found that cards from barclays with first digits 4658 even if this is visa debit are recognised by easyjet as electron, i tried with my wife' s card (different first digits) and appear information to change card type
