NEVER MISS A SEAT SALE: How to book flights online without a credit card

Sep 9, 2016 9:00:00 AM

It’s a hassle when airlines suddenly announce seat sales and you don’t have a credit card to buy tickets instantly. While the good seats are slowly running out, you have to worry about either:

1. Borrowing a credit card from your parents.

2. Getting that one person from your group of friends who has a credit card, to book tickets for everyone.

3. Risk wasting tons of time in traffic and waiting in line to pay over-the-counter

The solution? Pay for flights with PayMaya online so you can book the flights you want to, when you need to. 8PM sales? Book it.
