Card charges through agents
August 8th, 2011 by elisa

British Airways‘ decision to levy a charge for credit card bookings through agents has set the ball rolling for other airlines to follow suit. Lufthansa and Swiss now plan to introduce a £4.50 fee on all card payments (credit and debit) made through travel agents for economy seats.

BA only make charges on credit cards whereas these will also charge for debit cards as they say their system cannot distinguish between the two for UK cards.

A spokesman for Lufthansa said: “The costs we receive from credit card bookings are considerable, so we have to pass on a certain amount to those booking.”
