Paying with a credit card

Paying with a credit card collapsed Paying with a credit card expanded

Only one credit card can be used to book a reservation on flyporter.com, but you can use multiple gift cards and other forms of payment in combination with your credit card payment.

If you need to pay with two or more credit cards for your reservation, please contact us at 1-888-619-8622.

For online bookings made outside of Canada or the U.S., credit cards will be charged in either Canadian or U.S. currency. Porter does not have the ability to charge credit cards in any other foreign currency.

Note: to safeguard against credit/debit card fraud, the purchaser may have to show us the credit/debit card along with a valid photo ID at an airport counter.

Paying with a prepaid credit card

Paying with a prepaid credit card collapsed Paying with a prepaid credit card expanded

Prepaid credit cards may be used to pay for Porter flights. We recommend that you register your prepaid credit card to enable the card to work on flyporter.com. Information on how to register the card is usually listed on the back of the card or the packaging the card came in. Some prepaid credit cards may not be accepted.

Please note, if you are booking online, you can only use one credit card payment, so if your prepaid credit card balance is less than the amount of your purchase, you will not be able to complete your purchase online without adding another valid form of payment. Our Call Centre would be happy to assist you with your purchase if you would like to use more than one prepaid credit card.

Porter Gift Certificate

Porter Gift Certificate collapsed Porter Gift Certificate expanded

Gift certificates can be redeemed to purchase air travel (including base fare, fees and taxes) and related ancillary services on any flight operated by Porter Airlines. Gift Certificate confirmation number and recipient’s last name (as printed on the certificate) are required for redemption.

To redeem online, select the ‘Gift Certificate’ option on the Payment page to apply the value to your booking. If the purchase price is greater than the value of the Gift Certificate(s), the difference may be paid with an additional valid form of payment. Gift Certificates automatically retain any unused balances, so any unused amount can be used towards the purchase of additional tickets/services. Porter Gift Certificates are fully transferable until redeemed.

Reservation or account credits

Reservation or account credits collapsed Reservation or account credits expanded

Your reservation or account credit can be applied on a Payment page of your online transaction. In order to use your account credit, you must be signed into your VIPorter account.

Electronic vouchers

Electronic vouchers collapsed Electronic vouchers expanded

Electronic vouchers issued as compensation for a flight delay are redeemable online toward the purchase of a new flight. They are applicable to base fare only and not any fees or taxes. Travel must be booked and completed before the voucher expiration date. The voucher can be applied on the Payment page at the end of your booking. All vouchers are issued in Canadian dollars; applicable exchange fees for US dollar transactions will be applied at payment.

Vouchers are for one-time use only and any residual amount will be forfeited.

For full terms and conditions of your voucher, please refer to your email notification.

Oxford Gift Cards

Oxford Gift Cards collapsed Oxford Gift Cards expanded

Oxford Gift Cards are accepted for online purchases; however, you must first register your gift card to enable it to work on flyporter.com. Information on how to register the card is usually listed on the back of the card or the packaging the card came in.

Oxford Gift Cards are treated as prepaid credit cards. So, when paying for your online transaction, you will need to enter your gift card in the credit card field on the Payment page.
