I don’t have a credit card

25 May 2020

There are two options: real time internet banking (POLi) or pago.

More details on real time internet banking


Now you don’t need a credit card to book online AND there is no need to wait for funds to clear. That’s right, you can have a same-day confirmed booking AND pay cash! Here’s how:

If you are 14 years or over and have a New Zealand bank account, open a Pago wallet online here and top it up straight away at a any branch of the ASB Bank.

  • Register for your wallet at
  • Find an ASB Bank branch near you here.
  • Ask the person at the ASB counter to deposit the cash into 12-3456-0900123-022 (the Pago holding account) and
  • Put your Pago wallet name in the particulars field (this is how we know which wallet to put the money into).
  • Now you can go to the website to book and pay using pago immediately using the money you deposited.
