Italy - Buying promo tickets on Alitalia Italian Site
Feb 23, 12, 11:23 am
Does anyone have experience using the Alitalia Italian website to purchase "promo" tickets using a US credit card - e.g. American Express?
The prices seem much more favorable than the English website.
I just don't want to have something get lost in translation.

I just booked my flight with Alitalia via their website this week using my AMEX...takes awhile to clear AMEX, but the transaction went through just fine.

Did the same last June and bought a very inexpensive ticket PMO-VCE.

does one still have to pick up tickets in country of flight origin?
i once bought alitalia tickets IST-VCE. they were about 1/4 the price in ist. i called amex in ist to buy and pick up the tickets. that deal got screwed up. i went to a tiny travel store on a back street in ist. bought the tickets. were even less than at the amex office.
that az and the current az are different companies.

I've purchased nearly a dozen tickets from alitalia.it in the past three months using a US credit card, although I used a Visa, not an AmEx.
All promo fares, no problems at all.
