Debit card is an option that you can use as an alternate to credit card. Since debit card are not accepted by a large number of airline websites, you will find it a bit hard to search for the companies that allow debit card payments. If you do not have debit card and have been using just credit card with your bank, it is time to apply for one.
Bear in mind that purchase with debit cards may take a few days, so you have to be prepared for that. If you are in rush to get an airline ticket and reach your destination, debit card may not be as good an option as credit card. However, the process of getting a debit card from a bank is far less complex than that of credit card and you can get it issued within a few days.
Once issued with the debit card, you can follow the same process of purchase as you do with credit card.
Search for websites
You probably will not be able to find the official websites of well-known airline companies that allow debit card payment, as most of them allow credit card purchases. Online ticketing, however, is being done through debit card and you can search for website that act as intermediary between buyers and the companies.
For instance, if you are from the United States, you can use the services of American Airlines website. The website lets users buy e-tickets through cheque. But for e-ticket purchase with the American Airlines website, you should have an account with the bank based in the United States (or an American bank). You will also be required to give the bank’s routing number. The Airline will then verify the address of the bank.
In addition to payment through check, you can also use electronic payment services such as PayPal. PayPal, being the number one payment processor in the world, has multiple options for people like you. You just have to provide all the essential details and make the purchase.
Buy ticket in person
If you want to avoid credit card purchase for any reason, buying a ticket through a sale office of an airline is the easiest option available for you.
