Booking occurs when you reserve any travel product, such as flights, accommodation, car hire, destination activities, rail, cruises, and insurance. Once you have booked products through www.directflights.com.au, or through one of our booking agents in person or via phone, we must receive payment (and the Credit Card Authorisation form if paid by credit card) , before your tickets or travel products will be issued to you.
The issuing of tickets happens once Direct Flights has received payment for your booking (and the Credit Card Authorisation form if paid by credit card) and has processed the transaction.
There are several ways in which you can make a payment to Direct Flights.
We accept payments by Visa, MasterCard, AMEX credit card. A credit card handling fee is levied on all credit cards. As an added measure of protection against online credit card fraud, we require that those wishing to pay by credit card complete our Credit Card Authorization Form, and send it back to us before we process the transaction. Tickets and travel services will not be issued until the Credit Card Authorization Form is received.
We also accept payments for flights by pay online, bank cheque, Direct Deposit.
Note: – Bookings with promotional fees of 0% for Visa and Mastercard, will still have non-refundable merchant fees (1-1.75%) deducted from refunds.
AMEX (surcharge 1.75%) Note: Merchant fee (1.75%) is non-refundable.

Direct Flights reserves the right to request customer to complete a Credit Card Authorisation Form if required before ticket(s) to be issue. Delay in returning the Credit Card Authorisation Form may result in a difference in price, should the original fare no longer be available, and your travel may be subject to cancellation and a cancellation fee as outlined in our Booking Conditions. Failure to complete and return the Credit Card Authorisation Form will result in automatic cancellation, and you will incur a cancellation fee as outlined in our Booking Conditions. You can fax the completed form to 1300 863 534 (within Australia) or 02 8580 5711 (outside Australia) or by scanning and emailing it to email@example.com. Should you not wish to complete the Credit Card Authorisation Form, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately, as offline payment options may available.
That’s easy – for your protection. Because of the increasing amount of online transaction fraud, Direct Flights requires our customer who wishes to pay for travel by AMEX card to complete and send in our Credit Card Authorisation Form before we process the transaction. That way you are better protected and we are better protected against false card use, until a time where better security measures are in place for online transactions.
Once you complete the Credit Card Authorisation Form, you can fax it back to us at (+61 2)8580 5711 (outside AUST) or 1300 863 534 (within AUST), scan and email it to email@example.com, or should time allow, mail it to:

Should you not wish to fill out the Credit Card Authorisation Form, you may select the offline payment option whilst still in the booking process.
If you have already received a booking confirmation after selecting to pay by online payment method, and you do not wish to complete the Credit Card Authorisation Form, offline payment options may be available. Should time and booking conditions allow, we allow for Direct Deposit, and bank cheque for offline payments. Please contact the booking team at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to arrange an offline option, as time restrictions may exist.
Your account isn’t actually debited at first. It’s pre-authorised. When you select to pay by credit card, you are automatically pre-authorising your credit card to be debited for the authorised amount. This is sometimes referred to as “freezing marked funds” by some financial institutions. In other words, your funds are still in your account, but they may not be in your available balance, as you have dedicated them to purchasing travel products from Direct Flights. Once Direct Flights receives your completed Credit Card Authorisation form within 12 hours of your booking, we process the transaction and the funds are debited.
Should you not wish to complete the Credit Card Authorisation form and you arrange another method of payment for your booking, Direct Flights will not process a transaction of any amount against your card. Your available balance will be restored at a rate that is dependent on your financial institution (approximate time is 3 – 5 days).
Should you not wish to complete the Credit Card Authorisation form, and fail to make payment for your booking by an alternate payment method, your booking will be cancelled and you will be subject to charges equal to our booking cancellation fees, detailed in FAQ #10.
