Title:Purchasing China flights from abroad
Post 1 Purchasing China flights from abroad Jun 18,08 11:10 AM
Could someone please tell me whether it is possible to purchase tickets on-line for flights on China Eastern from outside China and at the lowest price advertised -without having to pay agent"s fee and fees for money transfer. We want to fly from Urumqi  to Kunming. Eileen (Australia)

Hi Eileen,

Welcome to the board.

There are a few websites that allow you to book China"s domestic flights using a foreign credit card, but they generally add a 5-7% surcharge and some do not give you instant confirmation.

Besides, many of these websites often fail to process online foreign credit card transactions due to the poor payment systems they use, and they can only finalise foreign credit card payments off-line if you fax or send them a photocopy of your credit card - which I for one don"t feel safe at all.

I was actually helped out by a great mate last time, see the PM for more details.

Cheers.

you can try www.opodo.co.ukthis website can search all the air tickets around the world, including China. They accept Visa, mastercard for online payment.That is the only website I know for online (visa and mastercard) buying china"s domestic air ticket. However, it is not the cheapest. If you can read Chinese and have a Chinese credit or debit card (UnionPay), it would be better to try the Chinese website like www.kuxun.com where you can find the cheapest Chinese air ticket. You can also check out the websites of the airline companies such as china southern and air china..

If you fly China Southern Airlines, you can book online and pay with your credit card without any surcharges whatsoever directly from the airlines website. Their online fares are even lower than the fares they quote if you phone them.

If, however, you only feel comfortable with phone reservations, you can call CSA directly, book by phone and even pay by phone.

I would be surprised if Air China didn"t offer similar services.
