Avoid credit card fees when purchasing flights online.
Sick of having to pay credit card fees when purchasing your flights online? There is an alternative called POLi.
Is there any alternative to paying for my flights online rather than using my credit card. I am getting sick and tired of the fees that are charged. Every time I purchase what seems to be a great deal online, I am hit with additional costs just for using my credit card.
We agree with you Tina, it is infuriating to find that the cheap flight which you are booking online turns out to be not such a great deal once the additional credit card charges are added on.
Many airlines are now offering POLi as a payment option. You can avoid paying any fees as the cost of your flights are directly transferred from your bank account. There is no extra charge to pay with POLi and they encourage their merchants not to surcharge for the use of POLi.
The system is available in Australia and New Zealand and is currently used by Air New Zealand, Jetstar, Virgin and Etihad Airways.
You will need to have internet banking enabled to use POLi – it’s a great alternative for people without credit cards, or for those who have them - but would prefer not to use them online.
