There are two types of bank transfer options:
emirates.com offers a variety of payment methods and the options available to you will depend on the country that your booking departs from and the amount of time left before you depart.
You may be offered one or more of the following payment options:
Since we have different payment options from different countries, we would ask that you check during the booking process what payment options are given to you. If your desired payment option is not shown, it may not be available for the country that you are departing from, or there is too little time left before departure.
In some countries we may only offer the option to make the booking online and then make payment at an Emirates office.
This will depend on the country of departure of the ticket.
On the Enter billing information page where the credit card details are entered, if the "Cardholder name" can be typed in, you would be able to pay for the booking even if you are not travelling. If the "Cardholder name" appears in a drop-down menu and cannot be changed, you would unfortunately not be able to pay for the booking unless you are travelling.
In some countries, for security reasons, the holder of the credit card used to book a ticket or group of tickets must be one of the travellers on that itinerary, and will be required to show the actual credit card at the airport check-in counter prior to receiving boarding passes.
Skywards members may make a redemption booking for friends and family, and pay for the applicable taxes online with their own credit cards, if the country of departure offers credit card payment.
Business Rewards administrators may also pay for their organizations members bookings by credit card, if the country of departure offers credit card payment.
PayPal is a safe, easy way to pay. The service allows anyone to pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit or account balances, without sharing financial information. Before using PayPal, you need to register with them, and you need to register a method of payment with them, such as a credit or debit card.
When booking online at emirates.com and selecting the PayPal option, you will be sent to the PayPal website, where you will need to log-on and select one of the payment methods that you have registered with them in order to pay. PayPal will process your payment, and you will then be taken back to emirates.com, where your booking confirmation and e-tickets will be given. PayPal provides payment to Emirates on your behalf, and your payment method details are not given to Emirates.
