Flybe is cutting its credit card fees ahead of a national ban on the surcharge.

From January the practice will be completely scrapped across Britain said the government.

Passengers booking with credit cards pay an extra three percent with Flybe.

This will reduce to one per cent by the end of next month said the airline.

Surcharging is common practice across the country - with businesses ranging from takeaway apps to global airlines charging people to make card payments or for other services such as Paypal.

At present people can be charged up to 20% extra just for using a credit card to make purchases.

While many industries have acted to absorb the cost and not pass these on to consumers, these rules will bring an end to the practice entirely said the government.
