You can pay by cash or debit card

Don't have a credit card? No problem, you can still book online at Travelstart. Travelstart is now listed as an official Approved Beneficiary at all 4 main South African banks. When wishing to use cash, simply pay the teller at your local bank and the funds will be automatically transferred to Travelstart.

If you wish to use your Debit Card, use any Self Service Terminal at your bank. Swipe your debit card and enter your Travelstart reference number - it's as easy as that!

Please note that cash, EFT and Debit Card payments are currently not available for low cost airline bookings (Mango, 1Time and Kulula). Debit Cards must be swiped at a Self Service Terminal in the banking hall. The Debit Card number cannot be entered on our site.

You can book direct from your Mobile

Travelstart offers the height of convenience whereby you can now book and pay for your flight while on the move, at a restaurant, at the game - wherever - whenever you need to get away. Travelstart Mobile allows you to search, book and pay for all South African low cost flights on your mobile device.
