I keep getting a credit card error while trying to book, what do I do?
The booking process is completely automated (and all credit card transactions are secure). If you are receiving an error, here are some potential reasons why:
~ Address entered does not match the billing address stored on your account by the issuing credit card company.
~ Information such as zip code, state, telephone number, etc. may be missing or entered incorrectly.
~ CVV Code may be entered incorrectly. This code is the last 3 digits on the signature line on the back of your credit card (4 on the face of the card if using an American Express).
~ Your credit card company may have a block on your account to protect you from your credit card being used online; you should call your credit card company to see if this is the case to authorize the charge.
~ Your credit card company may have put a hold on this particular transaction; you should call your credit card company to see if this is the case. This happens when someone makes one or more errors trying to enter an order. To protect cardholders from unauthorized use, the credit card companies sometimes place a hold when they see several attempts to charge with changing information used.
~ Insufficient funds to cover the transaction being booked.
Please check the entered details on the booking form and try again. If unsuccessful, please call your credit card company. Please send an e-mail to
support@CheapFloridaBus.com for any inquiry so that we may research the issue as well.
