Flight Payment Options

At FlySafair we offer a range of payment solutions to make the purchasing of tickets as simple and safe as possible. Customers have a range of options when it comes to making payment for flights. Below we list the available payment methods.

Blue debit card

Credit & Debit Cards

By far the most simple method of payment is via credit and debit card on our website. This secure payment method will ensure immediate settlement meaning that you can rest assured that your tickets are confirmed.

Our Payment Partner is called PayU. PayU is one of the world's foremost payment service providers who protect your transactions with a robust double firewall, SSL encryption, 3D Secure, and fraud detection facilities.

At FlySafair we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners International cards.

We also now offer a save credit card function on our client login portal. You can register and manage your interactions with us on this portal, and with the saved card function, it offers you express check-out.

Zapper Z Logo


FlySafair now offers Zapper as a quick, simple and secure payment method. Just download it from your app store, load your details and you can purchase flights directly from your smartphone.

We also have a facility where customers can choose to pay later. Using this method, for a small fee, you are able to secure your flight prices for 24 hours in which time payment must be made using a credit card or internet banking.

RCS Card


Payments can now also be made on the FlySafair website with your RCS card, which means you can fly now and pay for your flight over a number of months. This is part of our continuous efforts to provide you with an easy and convenient shopping experience.

RCS payments are available up until 4 hours before a flight.

To make use of this payment method, you need a valid RCS card, and have registered on the RCS app. Apply for your purchase via the app, which will then provide you with a One Time Pin (OTP) you need to use on our payment page to verify your purchase. Dial *120*7007# or log onto the app and request an OTP.

Internet Banking - Secure Instant Deposit (SID)

Some customers prefer not to enter their credit card details online. For these customers, we offer an alternative which is effectively an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) solution.

This payment solution is facilitated by our payment partner SID (Secure Internet Deposit). This system ensures that your EFT payment is linked to your booking immediately ensuring that full settlement takes place and your ticket is confirmed. SID is recognised as South Africa's most trusted payment alternative to credit cards.


We have partnered with Mobicred, a simple and convenient online credit facility, to provide passengers with the option to fly with the airline now and pay off their purchase in easy instalments.


Payments can also be made on the FlySafair website using the credit available in your FlySafair Wallet. The credit would have been issued with two codes, a voucher number and a PIN. These details can simply be entered on the payment page of our website to make a purchase.
