Big surprise: low-cost airline credit card fees are a rip-off

There is lots of noise around today about comments made by the head of the UK’s Office of Fair Trading about Ryanair’s charges for using credit cards and virtually every other method of payment to buy tickets.

I’ve just done a clip with UK radio station LBC and its presenter Nick Ferrari on the topic.

We’ve just done a major profile on Ryanair and Michael O’Leary – check it out here….

…and on the wonderful world of airline ancillary charges – check that out here.

    Thought I had a good deal with First National Bank Omaha. I had a (supposedly) 5.99% fixed lifetime rate on a balance transfer, and up jumped the boggy man. I have paid on-line for the last two years and when I received my last statement I now have a 28.99% apr. I have never missed a payment or been late and you see what these companies do to you and never blink an eye.

    you’re but certainly you are going to a famous blogger in the event you are not already. Cheers!
