Numerous news sources in the UK are reporting this evening that the Visa payment system (including Mastercard according to some) is not working as of around 5.00 pm. This is apparently affecting customers in Europe as well as the UK so it looks like this could be affecting holidaymakers here in Madeira: Guardian latest, Mirror latest.

Will update here when more news comes through, as it surely will very quickly.

Saturday Morning: Visa have apologised, citing a hardware fault. Apparently the system if fully back up and running now.

    You would have thought someone like Visa would have an automatic backup in the event of hardware failure.
