How It Works

To activate the mobile payment option, make sure you enter your mobile phone details in step 4 during your booking process:

1. Change “area” to Kenya
2. Enter your number as follows: 7XXXXXXXX

On the next step ( 5 ) , select Mobile Payment as your payment method.

Dial *737*10# and enter this code to validate your number ( which you entered in step 4 ) .  *This will incur a one-time cost of KES 10.

Once you validate your number, you shall receive an SMS with the payment procedure. Your booking confirmation and itinerary shall also appear on your screen. Here you shall find your Booking Reference Number (highlighted in yellow in the image below). Please enter this number (also known as a PNR) as your account number when making your mobile payments. Remember that booking references differ.

When making your payment, please ensure that:

  • You enter your booking reference number (PNR) correctly
  • You pay within an hour of receiving your booking confirmation. Bookings not paid for within this period will be cancelled and you will have to book again. Do not attempt to pay after the 1 hour booking period elapses.
