Payment instructions
During the reservation process, we will provide the bank information needed to process your bank transfer. You must proceed with payment within 3 days of booking your trip so we receive your payment in time to guarantee your reservation. To request a bank transfer:
  • use your bank’s online banking service (if your bank offers online bank transfer services),
  • complete a bank transfer request form at your bank,
  • visit your bank to pay in cash.
Depending on your country, please indicate the reference number (12-digit code) or the reservation number in the payment instructions using the memo field. This information will help us link the payment to your reservation.

As soon as we receive your full payment, we will send you an e-mail containing your e-ticket.


You can pay online for all or part of your reservation using a voucher.

Payment instructions
When paying for your reservation, enter your voucher number in the dedicated field. You may use a 2nd voucher, with a maximum of 2 vouchers per passenger and 3 vouchers per reservation file. Next, validate each voucher by clicking the “Add” button. If the amount of the voucher is greater than the ticket price, a new voucher will be issued for the remaining balance.

Please note:
  • Vouchers are non-transferrable and must be issued in the same name as the name indicated in the reservation.
  • Each passenger may use up to 2 vouchers per reservation within a limit of 3 vouchers per reservation file.
