Debit can be that low, credit never is.

20p per transaction as opposed to £6 per person per leg - bit of a difference. CC is typically 1% BTW though higher for small traders.

Looking at Ryanair's website the fee for card use is described as an "admin fee" - though it'll be interesting to see how they argue that it's an "admin fee" when they offer methods to avoid it.

Right. He boasts (rightly) about no fuel surcharges, but the credit card gambit he uses is every bit as bad. I guess his business model of advertising prices that are quite a few pounds less than what it really costs almost everyone to buy a ticket may go by the wayside.
