Online Credit Card

Paying with a credit card is the fastest and most convenient way to pay. This Payment Method has a 5% bank surcharge that needs to be added on top of the original amount.

Credit card payment is the fastest method of making payments to us without going through many bank procedures. Once you make the payment, we immediately get approval. This method assists us to confirm your reservations promptly. There is an additional bank charge of 5% as mentioned below. There are no other hidden costs.

How do I know that my credit card payment is secured?

Your credit card payment is completely secured. We use a link that is sent directly by the bank. The website is HTTPS, which stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure. Also, we do not take credit card numbers from you, they need to be filled up by you using the bank website directly.

What happens after the credit card approval process?

Once we receive your credit card approval, we shall send you a credit card authorization form that you need to fill for bank verification purposes only. In order to avoid fraud, the banks verify the forms that you have filled to confirm that you are the owner of the credit card.
