I am wondering. When I buy a ticket through a travel agency, does the travel agency bill me first and then pay the airline directly with their own funds?
A family member has agreed to lend me money to get back home and their last name is different than mine since they are on my mother's side of the family. They are planning to use their credit card however Air France has strict rules. If the family members book's through a travel agency, will I have any trouble when checking in at the airport?
***Can I purchase an e-ticket for someone else?***
Due to increased credit card fraud problems, Air France does not accept third party payments (the credit card holder not being the passenger or part of the group traveling together). Exception: We allow payments for family members with the same surname. Please make sure the family member you book for brings the personal identifier you specified during booking to check in at the airport (this applies to e-tickets only).Edited: 4:54 pm, December 14, 2013
