Easy Jet: Paying with Debit Card
 
I hate paying fees to pay for something, and I have not yet found a way around paying EasyJet 10+ CHF so that I can pay with my credit card. I've tried giving it my Maestro card number on several occasions but it won't accept it. Has anyone figured out a way around this without resorting to foreign debit cards?

Thanks!

Instead of considering the extra bits as fees look at the total cost of the flight and if its still attractive then objective achieved. Its the end product that matters rather than the initial amount designed simply to attract you to purchase.

Oh, agreed! I will still buy these tickets because they end up quite a bit cheaper than the alternatives. Still...are the debit cards that Easy Jet will take without fees only available in the UK?

Correct only UK resident cards. You are better actually using your credit card which most likely has an inbuilt travel insurance which the debit option has no insurance protection in case you cancel.
