Brazil - How can i buy a webjet airlines flight without a CPF?
Oct 4, 11, 1:34 am
Hi everyone, im trying to buy an iguazu to salvador flight on brazilian webjet airlines and cannot complete the transaction because i dont have a CPF code or a brazilian credit card. i have tried webjet.com.br website, also CVC website, decolar.com.br wesite and cannot get it through without a CPF or a brazilian credit card.
I prefer this airline because its half the price of TAM and GOL airlines.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can do this from Australia without going to a travel agent?
Dont want to risk waiting till i get to Brazil to book this flight in case they sell out.

There are CPF generators available that reportedly work, and I know of some foreigners who have used them to solve this problem. One of them is this:
Note: it is entirely in Portuguese. It will not resolve the problem of a non-Brazilian credit card if that is an issue. Otherwise this may work.

Thanks for the advise. I will try again tonight on the webjet airlines site and let you know how i go.
Their Web site also at least appears to allow for online booking using a passport number if you're not Brazilian, so don't know why one would need to use a fake CPF. Using a non-Brazilian credit card is a problem with some airlines.
I did it over the phone from UK
I did it over the phone from UK. But I think you'll need Portuguese.

Issues with the website. Entering my passport number and cannot get past this page, it wont accept it. It will go through if i put in a fake CPF.
The issue is that it then asks you for the CPF for both passengers from therein. If i go ahead and put another fake one in, will i then need to show this as some sort of identification at the airport???
Bit hesitant to go through with it. May try to book over the phone, my Portuguese is rusty but i am fluent in Spanish so i may just get through.

Have you tried booking through a Brasil-oriented travel agent in the United States, such as BACC Travel? These are experts at travel in Brasil, can make everything easier, and from my experience, sometimes, but not always, have special deals from the airlines, especially if you are flexible.
