Can I use my credit card to buy a ticket for someone else?
Yes, so long as that person is traveling on the same flight with you. If you, as the credit card holder, will not be among the travel party, you must present your credit card and passport/ legally acceptable photo ID to EVA Air and sign an indemnity form.
This can be done in one of two ways:
- Visit any EVA Air office during business hours and at least 48 hours before the passenger's scheduled departure. You must bring your credit card, passport/ legally acceptable photo ID and sign an
Indemnity of Payment form.
- Visit the EVA Air counter at the airport at least one hour before scheduled departure. You must bring your credit card, passport/ legally acceptable photo ID and sign an
Indemnity of Payment form.
Why is it necessary for the credit card used to purchase the ticket to be presented at the counter upon check-in at the airport?
This requirement safeguards the cardholder and helps prevent credit card fraud. All passengers who purchase tickets online are required to present the credit card they used when they check in at the airport. EVA Air may reserve the right to deny boarding
to passengers who fail to present the original credit card used to purchase ticket.
What are the Verified by Visa, MasterCard® SecureCode™, American Express SafeKey® and JCB J/Secure?
They are online security verification services launched by international card-issuers, namely Visa, MasterCard and American Express, which require the cardholders to supply both the credit card information and a personal security password to complete the
authorization process, in order to prove that the transaction is made by the actual cardholders. If your card-issuer offers Verified by Visa, MasterCard® SecureCode™, American Express SafeKey® or JCB J/Secure™, our e-ticketing website will automatically take
you to your card issuer’s website, where you will be required to enter your personal password.
If your card issuer does not offer such verification services, you will be required to present the credit card used in your ticketing transaction upon check-in at the airport for verification purposes, noting that the cardholder must be one of the travel
If your credit card transaction has been successfully authorized through Verified by Visa or MasterCard® SecureCode or American Express SafeKey® or JCB J/Secure, you will NOT be required to present the credit card upon check-in at the airport. In addition,
the cardholder does NOT need to be one of the travel companions.(However, if you have only entered the 3- (or 4-) digit card verification code on the back (or front) of the credit card, then you will still be required to present your credit card at the airport.)
For any abnormal credit card transaction upon purchasing, an email will be sent to the email address provided as notification of the transaction error. We have the right to request the passenger/credit card holder to present the credit card used upon purchasing
or the passenger/credit card holder may be requested to pay the flight ticket in cash before taking the flight.
