I am trying hard to buy a Lion Air ticket online from Jakarta to Denpasar but my MasterCard is always refused. The card worked fine on Jetstar and Qatar websites. Has anyone experienced the same problem?

I am arriving to Jakarta at 17.30 and would like to fly to Bali after 8pm . Would I have enough time to buy the ticket at the airport counter? Probably not? I have always bought tickets online so I'm not familiar with buying them at the airports. I dont know how full are Indonesian planes either.

I'd appreciate any advice

Maybe you could try Air Asia, they also fly from Jakarta to Denpasar.
Tickets at the airport counter usually overpriced.
For Lion Air, last time, I used online ticketing agency. But with Air Asia, I had not problem at all to do it online.

Happy e-surfing!

Thanks but the thing is that my first plane arrives to Jakarta at 17.30 and I want at least 3 hours between this and next flight, and the last one by Air Asia leaves at 19.20. Only Lion Air flies later in the evening.

Waiting in the immigration line, collecting luggage, money exchange, changing the terminal and very possible delays....I dont think 2 hours will be enough? Besides that this will be my 4th flight in 24 hours and too much rush already.

Ill try to book over the phone and if I dont succeed, I will try Air Asia.

Yes your 2 hours delay won't be enough :(
Unfortunately services in CGK airport is not as great as Changi where you can easily find good spot to sleep or wait for your next (early morning) flight.
I did try to call Lion Air, no luck. That's why I opted to use the agency.

I booked with peramatours last year. Easy and no problems. Just payed with paypal. They got me a ticket with lion air.
Try sky avaiation, they accept forerign cards.
Dont go with trans nusa or merpati. They are always late!!
