    Visa Electron Card

    I'm looking to get hold of one of these pretty quickly, anyone know if they can give them out at the Post Office or if it is online order only?

    Thanks

    Yeah, needs to be Visa Electron for ryanair. I'm booking 8guys so £80 saved would go down well.

    Anyone know?

    My son got his in the travel agents...Just over the counter with his driving license.

    I know what your thinking, tell them you got charged but pay with visa electron then pocketing £80. You pocket £80, they love you for booking it. Good trip easy money. JJB - Everyones a winner!

    Got the post office one on Monday you get it that day and then load it up min £50 cost £3 to load for sterling £0 for euro or dollars but you will have to wait till the next day ie 24hrs to validate you card you do this by phone its so easy to do but you will have to wait 24hrs after you pick up.

    We recently got one of these, although I'm not sure how long it will take you to get one. We opened a basic account with the cooperative bank and got one that way. I'm not sure if there is a fast track way of doing it or not, but if you have a branch near you, you should be able to get an account opened same day and a card a few days later.

    Not sure if this is of help but thought I'd mention it:thumbsup:

    The quickest way is online with ourpay ?? that's not the name but something like that its posted on this site. The second quickest way is the post office card that i have 24hrs or less.

    Didn't someone have a thread about their prepaid electron card not working with Ryanair recently? Can someone confirm they have used the post office card with Ryanair and not been charged?

    got mine from abbey national
    took about 3 days

    halifax do em as well

    Buy Ryanair vouchers and then use them to pay for the flights. There are no charges when using vouchers.

    Looked at this, but the terms and conditions still make it difficult unless you have more vouchers than you actually need. If any shortfall, you have to use a card to make it up. And if you use a voucher of higher value than the flight, any amount remaining is void! :w00t:

    Vouchers can only be redeemed on [url]www.ryanair.com[/url].
    Gift vouchers must be redeemed within 6 months (186 days) of the voucher issue date after which date the voucher becomes void.
    The validity of the vouchers cannot be extended.
    Vouchers are issued in denominations of €25/€50 or local currency equivalent.
    If a voucher is partially redeemed the remaining balance is void.
    Vouchers are only valid for the person named as the voucher recipient.
    A maximum of 4 vouchers can be used to purchase a flight. If the total amount of ticket price exceeds the value of the voucher(s) any price difference must be paid by credit or/debit card.
    Vouchers are only valid for the payment of Ryanair flights and any associated taxes, fees and charges.
    Redemption of gift vouchers in a different currency from the issuing currency will be subject to foreign currency conversion rate at the time of booking.

    Informative.

    I went to get a PO electron card yesterday but they seem to have a few charges too, but worth it to save £9.50 each on flights.

    Yes, I'm going to get one tomorrow. I avoid Ryanair if I can, but there is one route I regularly fly where I often don't have a choice. When I am booking for the 4 of us it costs £4.75 (or £4.50??) per segment person to use the debit or credit card. The PO electron card only costs 1.5% (min £3) for top-ups according to your link. That's a BIG SAVING for my next flight on that route :thumbsup:
