Credit Card Fees

Finnair Travel Agency Credit Card Acceptance Policy

Credit card fees are collected across the industry to partially cover costs on payment methods with the highest cost. Finnair collects credit card fees in various markets in accordance with the EU Regulation 2015/751. The fees are based on the POC (point of commencement) of the journey and are added to the total amount of the ticket (first issued ticket including YR fees and taxes) automatically as an OB FCA fee during ticketing.

Finnair collects credit card fees on Finnair tickets (105) also when codeshare or interline partner flights are included. Same fees apply for one way and return tickets, child tickets, corporate fares and group bookings.

Note, that OB fees are not shown on the ticket with standard taxes and charges, but they are added to the Electronic Ticket/Itinerary Receipt and automatically reported to BSP. The fee is shown as a part of the Grand Total of TST or with free format TQO. Customers can find the credit card fee separately on the electronic ticket receipt.

In return cases, the fee is refunded when the ticket is fully refundable (no refund penalties are collected). Currently the industry standard does not allow the travel agencies to refund any OB fees. In these situations, the airline should be contacted using the Refund Application in BSP link.

Cases when fee is not collected:

  • Debit cards
  • Infant tickets without seats
  • Ancillary sales (seats, meals, baggage etc.)
  • Exchanges and fees
  • Finnish Government fares (YNPR2GOV, YNPR0GOV)

Credit card fees on travel agent channels per POC can be found on below table.
