Hi All,

I am trying to sign up on EF to plan a J class RTW. I have tried 5 times to sign up and every time it tells me that the transaction has failed. I have tried two different credit cards and the same result for both.

Is there a trick that anyone knows of? The "helpful" support staff suggested that my card may be blocked. Nothing #$$#%%* me more than waiting a day for a response as inane as that.

Any tips greatly appreciated.

Matt.

I had no trouble signing up with an Oz Amex; however this was nearly 20 months ago.

Perhaps you could check with your cc providers, you may have been 'falconed' similar.

Your bank will have visibility on the austhorisation and can help with your inquiry, which would be a first port of call for help, I had the same issue and once I told them it was a genuine auth request I retired it after getting of the phone and it worked, have not had a problem since.

All sorted out, AMEX had the card listed as unpaid even though it had been paid off. I just transferred from a different AMEX so that may have confused it. Still does not explain why my VISA didn't work though, it almost seemed that once my AMEX was rejected that EF would not allow any other card. Doesn't matter anymore, it's all sorted now - thanks for your tips.

Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.
