I recently purchased roundtrip tickets to Johannesburg, South Africa from FareDepot.com. I received the following e-mail from them:
"Thank you for choosing www.faredepot.com for your travel. According to the booking made on line by you, we notice that your are travelling to AFRICA where FAREDEPOT requires certain documentation like the Credit Authorisation form(Duly signed by card holder), along with Credit card front and back copy and driving license Or any Photo Id proof.
This is not airline requirement this is our company policy,Unfortunately we wont be processing the ticket's without proper documentation.
NOTE: - Fare is valid till 6th September 2012
Awaiting for your reply.
I just found this very odd and now I'm second-guessing my purchase with FareDepot. Has anyone had experience with this company?
