I use cornercard. It doesn't specifically say it is visa electron card but I do use it to buy Easyjet flights without the paying the extra fees.

Re: VISA Electron Card - Can you get one here?

Hi,

Are you also interested in a half-fare card for the rail network?
If so, SBB Visa Elektron (that is actually managed by Jelmoli, who has a great customer service line) might be an option. Have been using it for over a year now and am very happy with it.

Go to http://mct.sbb.ch/mct/en/reisemarkt/...visa-karte.htm?=
to get more info. (The card you're interested in is on the right handside with a "prepaid" tag).

Beware of extra charges (2.- per recharge) and the fact that you can't put more than 3,000.- per month on it.

Cheers

I just got the SBB prepay visa credit card and it is NOT a visa electron card. It is a Visa debit card and therefore cannot be used for 'free' transactions on the easyjet website.

The SBB prepaid visa card is not a VISA electron and you cannot use it to get fee free flights through Easyjet. I have one and I was charged fees and I called the number on the back of the card and they told me it is not Visa electron

I used to have a prepaid Cornercard Reload. It did allow me to get fee free flights through easyjet. But I recently sent them an email and they told me the prepaid Cornercard Reload is not a Visa Electron? So maybe it has changed since.

Cornercard do have a Cornercard emotion reload visa electron card but if you apply for this card it will be valid only until the June 2011. They told me to wait till July to see if they will offer a new Visa Electron in July.

Yes agreed, my old card with Jelmoni was an Elektron Card. Now the SBB have issued a Visa Pre Paid card. It doesn't work anymore with Easyjet.

The SBB partner has also changed from Jelmoni to Valartis Bonus Card AG, and other than partner name change, the two cards are identical, even the same telephone number!

Maybe Jelmoni still have an Elektron Card?

Check out this thread, someone mentioned the visa electron card on it
Has anyone ever used a Prepaid Credit Card for flight booking?

Re: VISA Electron Card - Can you get one here?

I just finished a call with cornercard and the cornercard reload prepay VISA is not a VISA electron card but if the number on the card you receive matches a Visa electron number you can use it as a Visa electron on the easyjet site.For example my credit number starts with 4508 which when you look on google this Issuer Identification Number matches a Visa Electron. And therefore is recognised on the easyjet website as a Visa electron.
