Debit card to pay Airlines

Recommended Posts

Did anyone know if I can use my debit card to pay airlines? British Airways probably.

My name is not on the card.

I have a pre paid credit card, and an online wallet, but it costs a bit to send cash to them.

Debit card with no name? Did not think it was possible

 

Sorry, yes it is. Bangkok Bank's does not have name on it.

It is doubtful. It would be like anonymous cash. 

Do airlines even accept cash anymore?

Can't speak for BA but I have never had a problem with Emirates. I have used both Thai and UK debit cards with them.

This is not visa related, so I'll move to th travel section.

 

Some airlines require the card used for purchase to be shown at check-in, the name "priviledged member" may be an issue.

 

A number of airlines don't acceptt vitual or pre paid cards, I've no idea why.

Does not matter which bank issued it, if it has VISA or Mastercard on it then it should be valid worldwide. I do wonder about the reasoning behind the bank not putting your name on it? My SCB VISA Debit Card has no name, but I guess the imbeded chip identifies it as mine.

Depends on the issuing bank maybe and currency. Who are you with?

Krung Thai. Have a couple of other accounts but cards out of date.

Could Airways get a new Bangkok bank card, as I have internet banking with them, and Krung Thai

Tie the card to a Paypal account and pay via Paypal? BA take Paypal.

Last time I tried to get Pay pal, I couldn't in Thailand, but was maybe 10 years ago.

How do I get PayPal?

Try going to paypal.com and signing up.

That seems to work. I guess its way enough to send cat from bank via internet to pay pal. 

Looks like I'll be playing online poker again too!
