They do charge a fee for use of this card. We travel to Dublin several times a year.

Also, the seats are only one way. We have been hit with this a few times in the past.

Welcome to HUKD btw.

Just found a free flights for the dates adverised. Total cost ---- £32.99!

Just booked mine and the flight was £5 each way and £5 charges and tax each way........£8 to pay by Visa Debit so a grand total of £28.....
I'm not saying it's not a bad deal but just don't get carried away!!

They always have (well at least the last few years).

A Visa Electron is exempt from payment charges / fees.

The Halifax have an easycash account which supplies you with the Visa Electron card. I have saved a lot of money by having it especially for booking with Ryanair.

I went to the post office and got a sterling travel card which is a visa electron. There is a minimum top up of £50 and it costs £3 each time you top it up. I use this to pay for my flights as I travel to dublin at least once a month with the kids and although I often get 'cheap' flights when I was having to pay debit card charges it became extortionate!!! I would recommend this to beat those silly charges!

cough cough........ apologies .........cough ;-)

I'm sure when I got this email earlier it said 5 euros?

It now says £5 on my email - how is that possible?

I know in the past when we have travelled to Dublin we have paid in Euros and it worked out cheaper

I'd recommend using a Credit Card for booking flights as if they go bust you end up with nothing, but the Credit Card company will insure the item for you, whereas debit cards do nothing.

this is because defaulted to the UK part of the site, click on english(ireland) on the top right hand side, it should then bring you euro prices. however if you are resident in the uk im not sure sure if you can pay in euro?

I'm sure that even with the flight being £5 the "extras" added on would cost more than £100 for 2 people.

Another ryanair marketing ploy ryanair=dfs :whistling:

In October we went to Dublin for 2 nights (£25 for 2 hand luggage) and Girona for 4 nights (£88 for 2 including 1 hold bag). It would have been less if I had one of the aforementioned Posst Office cards. Will be looking into the Coop and Halifax to get a normal Electron card.

i cant believe some people's tightassedness!! the fact is if you do it right you can get a flight for £5 to a different country IMHO thats more than a good deal.... get the boat or better still walk home....

Actually it'd be better for us all if you "tightassedness" people stayed at home :).
