Hi all

I am trying to book a flight with Ocean Air from Sao Paulo to Rio and when I get to booking it asks if my visa card was issued in Brazil or Argentina, it obviously not as I'm from Ireland and I was wondering does anyone know how to book with this airline using a foreign credit card? I sent an email to them but received no reply to date.....

Anyone had a similar experience? Or do their prices change a lot that if I wait until I am there in 2 months and book in the airport will it cost me loads more?

Many thanks...

I think taxes maybe impossed on non residents hence your problems.

It's not far anyway so why not just get a luxury bus.

We are just coming off a flight from London and didnt fancy spending the 6 hours on the bus might just see what happens when we get there, might be able to book with them in the airport... I tried calling from the numbers on their website (by putting the Brazil international code in before) and would not connect....

Might just have to stop being scabby and fork out for the more expensive flight or spend another 6 hours on the move!!

Thanks very much
