Ryanair inflight purchases


Just to let users know in case the same happens to anyone else - I paid for food on a Ryanair flight last week (wasn’t bad either!) but when we landed at Stansted and obviously their system synchronised the payments were declined by Revolut due to the geo-location security. I thought I’d bagged a free lunch but you will find Ryanair manage to re-do the transaction a few days later and it was successfully debited 48 hrs later! Still showed as a remote debit (from Dublin when I am in London) so I’m not sure how they bypass the security the second time but all very fair so no complaint!

Gas stations: make it possible to pay at gas stations that pre-authorize 🚗
Wrong names in Curve transactions + declined transaction in a market

Good to know the card works with Ryanair.

I am curious, do you happen to know by any chance if it was a chip + PIN or a magstripe transaction?


What would happen if you did a double-block on both Revolut and Curve? So the airline tries to charge your Curve card (disabled), and Revolut is selected as the underlying card (also disabled).


Cuve was involved? So it wasn’t a Revolut card payment on board?


There is no suggestion that Curve was involved. I am asking what would happen if one inserted a disabled Curve card between the airline and a disabled Revolut card.
