    Hmm..this some kind of scam? Decided to say ‘why not’ and buy a ticket but failed – I see an auth in my online account with an immediate auth for the matching negative number. So tried another card – and exact same thing.

    Guess I’ll call the banks tomorrow.

            The link is not broken. It is working fine for most people. There is an issue with the tool accepting Geekandi’s credit card(s). We are sorry for the inconvenience but have no way to force the payment through the cc system we have suggested that he pay by check.

  • Let us know when they fix it

      Still broken as of now.
