Onboard credit card payments

Recommended Posts

A quick heads up that the following credit cards are currently not accepted for payment onboard:

Marks and Spencer
John Lewis
Barclays (credit)

Seems a bit hit and miss - my M&S card didn't work on Barfleur last week, but was fine on the Bretagne.

Surely that's 50% of BF's target market given the prices they charge. Ed.

That's bizarre - though, the former two are both issued by HSBC.

Does it effect Visa, Mastercard or both?

That's because BF changed some of their card readers form the Verifone SC5000 to the Atos Worldline ones. The Bretagne stils has SC5000.

BF should use the Verifone VX820 like P&O, Irish ferries and Condor do. Then then they could accept contactless payments.

Apparently contactless is coming in a few weeks the cards on Bretagne certainly have the contactless symbols and the staff told me it would be happening then .

My Tesco visa works every time! We must be the other  50%.
