Families returning from holiday who took out a Ryanair prepaid card face hefty ‘inactivity’ fees if they do not use the card every six months.
The budget airline has just launched its Cash Passport, advertising it as a way to avoid booking charges on its flights.
But these cards come with strings attached. Customers who do not use their card for six months will be charged £2.50 each month. And if you spend all your money on the card, or your remaining balance is eaten up by charges, you will be charged a ‘negative balance’ fee of £10.
