Qatar airways asking for credit card and I’d after booking

Sun Dec 29, 2019 5:28 am

Hi
Qatar ask to send card details and passport picture
after a booking is made and payment went through.
Is this a Qatar thing or something other company’s also do?
When he (my brothers booking) called support they said send it or you loose both tickets and money.
I never experienced this and I fly a lot with many different company’s.
For me it sounds stupid to ask about things that both banks and authorities tells you never to send.

Not uncommon for carriers to request this for bookings made directly through them online or via telephone. Relates to the high levels of CC fraud w/international airline tickets. Do follow the instructions of the airline or else you'll lose your booking.

In the future, the best way to avoid airline CC verification hassles is to book thru a travel agency. On agency bookings, the agency bears the risk of CC fraud, so airlines don't care about your form of payment.
Live life to the fullest.

Did you book the flight for your brother? If the payee is not a passenger, that raises red flags (as avek00 mentioned, it's mostly CC fraud related). I had this happen every time I booked tickets for family members to visit me.
