Ryanair announcement - German Supreme Court rules that credit card fees are legal – as long as there is a valid free payment method
Saturday 22, May 2010
Ryanair yesterday corrected the false statements made by the German consumer organisation (VZBV), and repeated in today’s Irish Times newspaper, following yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling in Germany.
VZBV wrongly claimed that airlines will now be banned from charging credit card fees. This is untrue. The German Court ruling clearly said that credit card fees are legal and can be applied as long as a widely available free payment method is offered.
The German Court’s ruling vindicates Ryanair’s position that credit card fees are legal as long as a free payment method is offered.
Ryanair’s lawyers have written today to the VZBV and the Irish Times demanding retraction of yesterday’s false statements.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
