Always keep the payment cards that you used to pay for tickets over the Internet

If you travel a lot, you know that it is convenient to buy plane and train tickets via the Internet. It is also convenient to reserve hotels and rent apartments through services like booking.com or airbnb.com . Due to our isolation from the countries of the first and second world by visa cordons, we prepare tickets and other purchases long before departure. All because the papers need to be submitted to the embassy for some time. You won't have any problems on the trip if you keep and take with you the plastic with which purchases were made. Otherwise, this is what will happen...

Always save the payment cards with which you paid for tickets over the Internet

Last year I went to The Next Web conference, which was held in Amsterdam, and bought plane tickets on the Kiev — Hamburg route over the Internet. Then I bought train tickets from DB Bahn on the internet from Hamburg to Amsterdam. This route consisted of two pieces with a transfer. Additionally, I made a hotel reservation in Amsterdam. And then I forgot about shopping before I left. During this time, my relationship with Universal Bank changed, and I broke the contract with them, and the plastic card was destroyed by me (so as not to lie idle).

The trip has begun. I quietly flew away on the plane and no one asked me about the card with which I paid for the ticket. I was just lucky here (for example, Bangkok Air always asks for the card that was used when buying the ticket). But then all hell broke loose. I boarded the train, thinking that the tickets I had on hand were normal. But the conductor who checked them immediately requested a card — its number was listed on the electronic ticket. I didn't have it, and he brought a policeman with him. German policemen are not like ours, looking at them, the image of the terminator from the film of the same name popped up in my mind. I paid for the ticket again in cash. The loss was a small €140.

I got to the hotel at two o'clock in the morning and was informed at the reception that my reservation had been canceled. The service checked my card three days before entry and, not finding one, simply removed my reserve from the system, and some lucky Poles were settled in my room. The warning letter from the service got into spam, and I didn't know it. At this time, Queen’s Day was held in the Netherlands. These days it is almost impossible to find an affordable hotel, everything is packed to capacity. I spent a few days in hotels that cost €200...300 per day, as only they had seats. Naturally, these expenses were not included in my plans, and this was very upsetting.

Therefore, if you buy e—tickets or make reservations on the Internet using a card, then save it and take it with you on a trip - this is very important.

Have you ever had such situations while traveling, and how did you get out of it?
