Travel Tips : Book your flight with Air Asia
Last week I was making an online booking for a flight with Air Asia and paid this with my credit card as I always do. Of course I did always know that you pay a processing fee, but I never realised it was actually so much. So I made a little test about the processing fee costs. This costs are like I have to pay when making a booking while as resident in Thailand.
- Credit Card : 10% of the fare price (with my overseas credit card)
- Over The Counter : 54 THB (example at the 7-11 in Thailand)
- Debit Card : 54 THB
- Union Pay : 54 THB
- BigPay from Air Asia : free
- ATM / Mobile : 54 THB + bank charge what for Thai banks would be about 20 THB.
When I did book I did pay about 350 THB processing costs for using my credit card. That means I could have saved me almost 300 THB. So note to myself : Do not use credit card anymore for payment with Air Asia. And check this also with other airlines, because I assume it will be the same at other airlines.
