and the 5€ administrative fee per flight. Anyway, since there's a depature tax of at least 9€ from Germany for short/medium distance EU flights, Ryanair will be losing money.

From Memmingen, I found Rygge, Edinburgh, Bremen and Porto. As usual, difficult to impossible to get a return flight at the same rate. www.swoodoo.com has all the Ryanair flights. Most of the flights to Stansted are 10€ anyway.

You can avoid the 10€ administrative fee, if you use a prepaid Mastercard such as http://www.wirecardbank.com/

I'm looking for a FREE no fee pre-paid mastercard. There were some out there awhile back.

Wirecard has lots of fees, I see.

Ryanair do not loose on any flight.
Their business model is to hold airports to ransom and ask for 1000s of Euros to fly to that destination.
Here in Galicia this is the news about this.

3%, min 1€
http://mywirecard.de/de/ShowFees.html

Ryanair = 10€ fee for 6€ flight, alternative
Wirecard = 1€ fee for same 6€ flight
You save 9€.
You save money unless the Ryanair flight costs more than 333€.

Thoses 3% are for CC recharges only. Bank transfer = 1€ flat fee, so in that case any roundtrip flight will cost you 9€ less.
1€ for a recharge with no other fees involved at all, really isn't too bad imho.

I was reading a maintenance fee for the account, plus 39E .. maybe all those fees don't apply. Looked expensive to me. I wasn't only looking at the card user fee, but the ACCOUNT yearly fees, etc.

>maintenance fee
On the site, they say NO maintenance fee for the account, all you have to pay is 1€, if you want to add money to the account.
Only if you actually want a plastic card, then there'll be a yearly fee but if you're a "frequent Ryanair customer" imo that the way to pay.
