alternative payment options

bank deposits are so 80s

Bank deposits are so 80s. From 19th June we will no longer accept bank deposits or electronic fund transfers unless they are made through internet payments powered by SID (Secure Instant Deposit). This means first to pay, first to confirm. Not everyone has a credit card, so we've ensured that there are enough viable alternatives to purchase a kulula flight.

pay with plastic

We accept many different types of plastic. These are MasterCard, Visa, Diners and American Express.

The CVV number on your card helps to keep your funds safe and reduces fraud, therefore, you will be required to present this whenever you make a card payment. For MasterCard, Visa and Diners, it is a 3-digit number at the back of your card, (sometimes the last 3 digits of a larger number). For American Express, it is a 4 digit code on the front.

Did you know your cheque card can be used to pay online?
