Credit Card Charges for Airline Tickets Issued in Nepal

very major airline in the US and Canada accept credit card payments. Unfortunately, most airlines in Nepal still do not accept credit card payments. Zen Nepal is usually required to make payments to airlines in cash or incur a service fee which we then pass on to customers

When we charge your credit card for payments in Nepal, we incur a transaction fee that is imposed by the credit card company. We add this 4% service fee to the cost of your ticket. We will always inform you before we make the charge and give you alternative payment options so you may avoid this fee.

You can avoid paying credit card service fees by:
  • Depositing check/cash in our Bank of America account, or
  • Making arrangements for someone in Nepal to deposit your payment at our Kathmandu office.
These fares cannot be waived under any circumstances.
Airline Cost Zen Fee 4 % Total
$100 $4 $104
$1000 $40 $1040
