    Strange. Can you just call them proactively and say that you will be making transactions with a particular vendor or with vendors from a particular country for the next X months rather than being on the line? You can tell them you will be out of the country (travel notice) and then tell them you are planning said trip.

    No problem here booking directly on Garuda's website with a VISA card.

    Oh yes I've done that before and I ended up having to still have someone approve it as it went thru.

    Just tried this literally 10 minutes ago and no joy. I've had all sort of problems with their site.

    I did have to do it twice, to get it to "take."

    I have used Expedia several times to book Garuda flights. Seat selections performed during bookings with Expedia always transferred over to Garuda without any problems.

    Tried it more than twice. Called credit card this am and found they had blocked all the the suspicious transactions. No notifications whatsoever to tip me off. Supposedly fixed now, we'll see how it goes now.

    Garuda kept saying the seatmaps weren't available for my flights, dunno if that is common?

    For what its worth, I have used Perama Tours (one of the larger travel agencies on Bali) a number of times to book internal flights. I've emailed them and asked for a quote for booking a particular flight (or flights). They also need passanger name, nationality, gender, date of birth. I've stated I can pay by PayPal. They give me a quote, I ok it, they reserve the flight and send a PayPal request, I pay this then they email me the tickets. Always worked well for me, and easy even if a few different airline bookings required.
