Hi everyone,

Quick query is it possible for me to book a return flight for my friend that will be travelling to the UK from Canada?

It seems to be cheaper for me to book than it is from her end, would i just require her passport number and correct name?

thanks in advance for any responses

Hi. I work in a travel agency that deals with just flights and nothing else.
It is always possible to book a flight for someone else. You can also use someone elses debit/credit card, as long as you have their permission and all the details.
Like you say, all you need is the correct details of the person you are booking it for. It is possible to live in the US, book a flight with a BA from Lusaka to Johannesburg and use the card of somebody that isn't even doing the trip. Its that easy.

I recently booked for someone else from the UK. The travel agents were happy to accept the booking, but the airline wouldn't confirm the ticket until i provided a copy of my ID. It was fairly straight forward though.
