In preparation for my first ever trip I have arranged to meet with a DIA girl at Caticlan for our stay on Boracay; but I will travel separately (by bus from Iloilo). I purchased her tickets on PAL; and was surprised to see this:
"To protect the true credit card owner, we require presentation of the credit card used in purchasing tickets from this website at the ticket collection point or upon check-in. If the credit card owner is not part of the travelling party and is unable to present the credit card, clear photocopies of the front of the credit card and the valid PHOTO ID of the credit card owner shall be required from the passengers at the ticket collection point or at check-in. It shall be the responsibility of the credit card owner to ensure that the passenger(s) comply with this requirement otherwise the passenger(s) shall be denied boarding."
"To avoid inconvenience, kindly ensure compliance with the foregoing Terms and Conditions by bringing the credit card used to purchase the tickets; or, in case the credit card owner is not part of the travelling party, a clear photocopy of the credit card and valid photo ID of the credit card owner for presentation at the ticket collection point or at the airport check-in counter."
I don't see how sending her a copy of my credit card and ID protects me! Will they really refuse to let her board if I don't? Has anyone else had to deal with this situation?
I have contacted the airline to see if I can get this waived, any other ideas?
