LIAT Airline is dedicated to safe online payments, as a result we have implemented Verified by 3D Secure. This feature adds an extra layer of security at the point where you enter credit card information online. The service helps prevent unauthorized online use before it happens by confirming your identity using an additional password.
Activating your card is very quick and easy and the activation protects you the customer against unauthorized use of your credit card. Only cards issued by banks which participate in the program can utilize the Veirfied by 3D Secure feature.
How does it work?
After submitting your credit card details on LIAT’s Website, you will be redirected to your bank's web site requesting from you your personal security code. Your bank will authenticate the transaction within seconds and confirm that you are the individual making the booking. Once you have been authenticated, you will be redirected back to LIAT's web site to complete the transaction. Click here to view an example of the steps involved in the 3DS Process.
If you have not used Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode, you have to enroll to use this feature first.
