Payments made by Credit Cards
If you buy your travel money with a credit card, and your transaction is more than £100, your money is protected under the terms of the Consumer Credit Act.
Your money may be protected even if the cost of your air travel was less than £100 and you paid by credit card, but you should claim within a reasonable time.
Many credit card companies will also refund money if the airline you booked with goes bankrupt, including the cost of unused return tickets.
This protection does not apply to debit cards such as Switch or Delta. Consider this if you are planning to avoid the credit fee charged by some airlines.
