HI

Has anyone successfully tried to book a flight with Ocean Air? I am trying to on their website but it is asking me was my credit card issued in Brazil or Argentina, its not as I'm from Ireland. I am just wondering is there another way? I sent them an email a few days ago but received no reply....

Or in the alternative if when I get to Sao Paulo in 2 months will the flight be a lot more expensive? Its nice a cheap at the minute yes.gif half the price of Varig and at a better time for us to fly dance3.gif

Any input advices would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You should probably call them on the telephone.

Here's a link to their website, but I'm sure you already know it:

Better ask the operator what to do, because I have zero idea how to call Brazil.

Don't know if this is too late for you. But for future reference.

For most of the airlines in Brazil, you have to have a CPF# to make an online booking. This is the Brazilian ID card. The airlines cross reference the name associated with the CPF# and that on the credit card to try to fight credit card fraud. The only airline that I've been able to book by myself online is GOL. TAM and Varig require the CPF#. Your other option is to call a Brazilian travel agent, but then you'll need to be somewhat fluent in Portuguese.

Currently traveling the world for work...with a few extra fiddleybits thrown in to keep it new...it's the cheapest way to go!!!

Quote from my friend Chuck, who spent 5 months riding his bicycle all the way around the USA - "Nobody says you have to order an entree in the restaurant of life, you'll only be here once! Order the sampler, try as many as you can before you're full; odds are one (of) the items on this menu does more for you than you ever thought. And if I'm wrong, tell the waiter that his menu sucks, throw the cook aside and invent your own masterpiece. Just pour 'em all in, all your favorite ingredients. With enough imagination, any combination will work -- there are no recipes for the paths still awaiting discovery."
