It’s a hassle when airlines suddenly announce seat sales and you don’t have a credit card to buy tickets instantly. While the good seats are slowly running out, you have to worry about either:

1. Borrowing a credit card from your parents.

2. Getting that one person from your group of friends who has a credit card, to book tickets for everyone.

3. Risk wasting tons of time in traffic and waiting in line to pay over-the-counter

The solution? Pay for flights with PayMaya online so you can book the flights you want to, when you need to. 8PM sales? Book it.


1. Make sure you’ve loaded up your PayMaya account at our over 15,000 Load Up Partners before booking online.  (Read: How to load up your PayMaya account).

2. Go to the airline’s website (e.g. to select your tickets.
