Paying by card on Air Transat

Hi Everyone

We are flying to Vancouver from Manchester in Sept and i was just wondering as they don't take cash on the flights, would it be best to get a pre-paid card for drinks ect,, rarther than use a debit card as i presume their would be charges for that.

Thanks in advance

Have you asked your debit card company if there will be some sort of extra charge?

" I don't think they take Debit Cards, at least not that I remember from my own flight from Gatwick to YVR, they do take Credit Cards and pre-paid ones too"

VISA debit cards work in the same way as VISA Credit cards when making a payment.

"Not all Banks have the Visa Debit"

I didn't say they did. I was referencing your comment that Air Transat don't take debit cards. If the debit card is through one of the main CC providers (Visa, Mastercard, etc.) then they are accepted in the same way a credit card is.

I got a Halifax Clarity credit card that has no foreign exchange fees at all. Its the best credit card for travelling :) You get the best exchange rate on it as well so I'm not taking too much cash with me.

I am also travelling Air Transat and am not too concerned. I've read good and bad reviews but its the same with Air Canada. My parents recently flew into Europe from Edmonton on Air Canada and they said it was the worst fight ever! (both ways too) very cramped seats .

AC was £800 more for the flights so it was a no brainer for me

Enjoy your holiday
