Emirates | Make a Booking | Enter Billing Information

4:41 PM

Whenever I go on vacation outside of Middle East my first airline of choice is Emirates. Not only do they have the state of the art equipment, the seats are also very comfortable and not to mention clean!

When booking for the parentals we opt for credit card payment but when booking for myself, I'd always use the book online and pay at the Emirates office. Apparently, that does not apply here anymore.

What they did instead is give their customers 3 payment options which in my opinion is totally considerate of them.
Emirates | Make a Booking | Enter Billing Information

Option 1 of course is payment through Credit Cards
Credit/Debit Card

You may be able to choose to pay for your booking using a credit or debit card. Please note that this depends on your country of departure as different rules apply. See online payment rules


Option 2 is through bank transfer (this is especially useful for people who does not or chose not to have a credit card like moi)

Bank Transfer

Emirates will provide you with a unique payment reference number and details of the Emirates/GlobalCollect bank account on booking completion so that you can make the payment. The bank may charge you a transfer fee. The unique payment reference number must be quoted when making the transfer.

The payment must be made within 48 hours or your booking will be cancelled. Once payment is made, please allow up to 6 days to receive the e-ticket.

International bank transfers are not permitted.

The confirmation of the transaction will appear on your bank statement as 'GlobalCollect'.


Option 3 is my personal favorite - payment through Western Union!
Western Union

We will provide you with a prefilled Western Union QuickPay form that has a unique payment reference number for your booking. Please pay at your nearest Western Union outlet that accepts QuickPay payments.

Click here to find your nearest outlet. Please ensure that it that supports QuickPay transactions before making payment.

Please note that payment must be made within 48 hours or your booking will be cancelled.

You can also select this option if you are not travelling however you wish to pay for the booking.

Payment has to be made in KWD currency at Western Union and they will charge you a transfer fee.

P.S.: I read from Mark's blog that the building where the new Emirate's office is had a fire incident so those who wants to avoid the inconvenience will do better by booking online and availing of these options.
