Can you actually pay for your flight using Paypal? Yes, you sure can!

These days, booking your travel online is the most common way to go. It’s so easy to do with online companies like Expedia and Trip Advisor. 

Paypal has offered it’s service to many airlines all over the world. The list of airlines that accept Paypal for payment continues to grow all the time. People love using Paypal to pay for their flights as it’s convenient and secure.

And it’s not only airlines that are accepting Paypal for traveling. Companies like Air B&B, Agoda, cruise lines, car rentals, and many others now accept Paypal.

Why should you consider paying for your flight with Paypal?

  • It’s convenient, quick and easy  – You won’t need to dig out your credit card, plus when your booking online it’s so easy to click that pay with Paypal button!


  • It’s a safe and secure way to pay online – Paypal is trusted by millions of people around the world as a proven way to pay online safely.


  • No extra fees- Some airline will charge extra fees if you pay with your credit card. If you pay with Paypal, you will avoid these unnecessary fees.


  • You may not have a credit card – Remember the days of needing a credit card to book anything for your travels like hotels, car rentals and flights? Well, that’s just not the case anymore. Yes, in some cases you will still need a credit card, but if you don’t own one, you can still book a flight online without one by using Paypal.



Some things to consider when using Paypal to pay for your flight:


  • Make sure to have a Paypal account already set up prior to booking. You don’t want to end up in a situation where you are in the middle of an online booking or about to click the pay now button and realize that Paypal is not set up yet.


  • Paypal might not be available everywhere. Make sure you confirm this prior to booking, as certain countries and areas may not accept it. Plus check if your currency is allowed.


  • Confirm any airline fees. Always check to make sure of any additional fees the airline may charge if you use Paypal. You don’t want a surprise charge that you were not expecting.


  • Paypal credit. If you live in the U.S, Paypal allows you to defer payments for 6 months. That may be something you want to take advantage of. But not all airlines allow you to pay with Paypal credit.
