Same Day Bookings Now Possible With 3D Secure

Book your flight


You are now able to make same day bookings on Travelstart. This can be done by enabling 3D Secure on your Visa or Mastercard.

What is 3D Secure?

3D Secure is a service facilitated by VISA and Mastercard and American Express that allows you to transact online securely when you use your credit card.

3D Secure, also called Verified by VISA or Mastercard Secure Code or Amex Safekey, introduces password protection during your online purchase to authenticate you as the customer.

You will only need to enrol once with your bank, prior to transacting on Travelstart.

You will be prompted to enter your previously selected PIN/Password or a One Time PIN to notify your bank that you are shopping online.

Please note that we do not support Amex Safekey yet.

Is 3D Secure compulsory on this site?

No, not yet. This is only compulsory for bookings made within a 48 hour departure time.

What are the benefits of 3D Secure?

Online shopping is already very secure with high levels of security and encryption whenever you use your credit card.

3D Secure is the next layer up of security whereby your credit card is further protected from any unauthorised use.

So you can book your travel online in total confidence and know that your card is protected at all times.

For more information, please contact your bank directly.
