What is the Card Verification Value (CVV)?

The security code on a credit card (indicated as CVV) is a validation code that verifies the authenticity of your Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club or American Express card.

On Visa, MasterCard and Diners Club cards this security code is on the reverse side of the card and is identified by the last 3 numbers. On American Express cards it is a 4-digit code printed on the front of the card, just above the card number.

When will my payment card be debited?

Your payment card will automatically be debited when you reach the end of the Online Booking and Purchase process. Depending on the bank, there may be a pre-authorisation which is subsequently cancelled by definitive charge.

I've detected a double debit after buying my flight. What do I do?

Depending on the bank, there may be a pre-authorisation which is subsequently cancelled by the definitive charge. The time between these two transactions should not exceed 7 days. If it does, contact your issuing bank because it will depend on the system they use.

Do I have to show my credit card at the airport?

If you need to show the card you used to pay at the airport on the date of travel, we will tell you before we confirm the payment.

 

What is Bizum?

Bizum is an easy and convenient way to shop online because all you will need to pay for your flight is to have your phone to hand. Once you confirm payment, the money will be transferred immediately from your bank account.

If you select "Bizum" as the payment method, we'll redirect you to that page so you can enter your phone number. Next, you'll get a notification on your electronic banking app asking you to confirm payment. Once you've done that, you'll automatically go back to the Iberia booking confirmation page.

What is the Amex card?

It's the American Express card. You can use it for all your daily expenses and collect MR Points which you can then transfer to Iberia Plus and turn into free flights. Transfer your Avios through the American Express website and enjoy your reward.

Is there a surcharge for using a credit card?
