I am having a very difficult time booking air travel for within Turkey on Turkish Airlines and Sun Express. I am an experienced world traveler but I can't quite figure out this issue.
The issue: My credit is "supposedly" declined when making reservations on Turkish Air & Sun Express but my bank is not declining the charge. It is most positively an issue w/ the Turkish Air & Sun Express systems - not my card.
My guess: Do some airlines make it difficult for foreigners to book domestic travel in country? I could get the tickets on Orbitz but the tickets are 6 times more expensive on these third party sites.
Any suggestions? I've really tried everything I can think of - calling lots of different numbers with each airline. Trying to book online w/ various credit cards and still no luck.
