How to buy a plane ticket without a credit card

So how DO YOU buy a plane ticket without a credit card?

Easy.  Visit a travel agent at a bricks and mortar store in your city/town.   You will be able to pay at the travel agency with cash or debit card. (No cheques)

The plane ticket, in your name, will be issued to you within minutes.   You will get an email copy, and a print copy if you request it,  of your ticket.

Most airlines also offer an app for your phone. Your last name and the ticket locator code can be entered into the app and you will see the ticket there on your phone.  You can even complete check in and receive a boarding pass on your phone.

In addition to the plane ticket you will need a drivers license or passport to board the plane with the matching name and identical spelling to the name on your ticket.  For example if your driver’s license says “Robert” your plane ticket must also say “Robert.” Even if the rest of the world knows you as “Bobby.”

Is there a fee for this service at a travel agent? Typically yes, a $25 ticketing fee will be charged to print & issue the ticket. However, some tickets might already have that fee included.  When in doubt, just ask.
