Airlines and Travel companies forced to cut credit card fees
The UK government has banned fees on most credit card surcharges including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and even Paypal from January 2018. From that point businesses will not be allowed to add any surcharges for card payments. Airlines and travel companies are often the worst offenders in this area with disproportionate surcharges. BA currently charges a 1% fee per ticket up to a maximum of £20. The change follows a directive from the European Union, which bans surcharges on Visa and Mastercard payments.
