BA increases credit card booking fee

19 Aug 2014 by BusinessTraveller

British Airways has increased its charge for paying for flights by credit card or via PayPal.

Business Traveller was alerted to the move on its forum, and can confirm that bookings made using a UK-billed credit card now attract a £5 fee, up from the previous £4.50.

The charge also applies to payments made by PayPal, but debit card payments continue to be fee-free.

As a comparison, Easyjet charges a 2 per cent fee for bookings made by credit card (on top of its £12 administration fee), while Flybe charges a 3 per cent fee for credit card transactions (with a minimum charge of £5).
