Credit Card at Check In


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to book a ticket for Thai person to fly BKK - LHR direct.


I found a great deal on EVA Air however, they require travelling person to show credit used to book the flight at check-in


As the credit card is in the UK and the passenger in Thailand this isn't possible.


Also to make it harder, they also require the credit card to show the same name as the passenger.


Head against brick wall!!


Anyone know of any airline that doesn't need to see the credit card at check in??

I flew EVA air about two weeks ago to get to thailand, and I didn't need to show a credit card.

I've had the same with Gulf and El Ethiad.


I just print out the booking they sent me and show them that along with my passport.


Are you sure the credit card is compulsory?


I always pay with my switch card, as credit cards often incur an extra charge.

Maybe this is why I get away with just showing them a printout.

Surely you can name the person flying as someone different paying for the ticket?

I spoke with eva air, their policy is passenger = card holder & to be shown at checkin. Can pay cash at one of their offives or use an agency in Thailand, but ask if credit card to be shown before booking with them.


I just checked BA website and they seem to fine, need to look at some others now

It's pretty normal in the UK - both Etihad and Qatar have the same policy. I presume it's something to do with CC fraud.

Cathay Pacific has the same policy. The credit card holder has to come in to the check in counter if they aren't the one traveling. And every time I took Cathay they asked me to show the credit card used to purchase the ticket. But I have booked with travel agency's before and got an electronic ticket and I didn't have to show credit card those times.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
