Ryanair and easyJet used to charge a credit card fee of 2% and 1% respectively. Flybe used to charge 1% for bookings paid for by a credit card or PayPal, and 2.5% for those paying by American Express. easyJet scrapped its fees on 14 December and at the moment Ryanair has said it will scrap the fee. It will be intersting to see if the price of flights just increases across the board by the same percentage.
Of course it is difficult to see if a flight goes up by 2% so the prices may have a stealth increase in order to make up for the loss that some of these companies will see.
We will be keeping an eye on what the travel industry does over the coming weeks.
