So you can relax, knowing everything has been taken care of and all you have to do is count the days to your departure.
When booking your reservation, either a deposit or full payment at the time of booking is required, so please make sure you have sufficient daily spending limits so your credit card company/bank will not block your account. Call the bank ahead of time if you're making a large payment with your credit card.
3D Secure - FOR YOUR SECURITY: CODE AND PASSWORD
At MSC we take your security seriously. Our site uses two systems - Verified by VISA and Secure code by MasterCard - that provide extra protection when paying by credit card online. They both do this using a very straightforward password verification process called 3-D Secure to confirm your identity and ensure your credit card can only be used by you.
The secret password is only known to you as the credit card holder and to your credit card issuing bank, and needs to be entered in a pop-up input window from your credit card bank at the end of the payment process. This prevents your password being stolen by ‘phishing’ and means that even someone who knows your credit card number cannot make a payment in your name.
As a result, our system first asks you to enter your credit card's security code, which you will find:
For American Express cards (four digits), on the front of the card above the credit card number
For Visa, Diners Club, or MasterCard cards, (3 digits) on the signature strip on the back of the card
You will then need to enter your 3-D Secure password to complete the transaction.
The 3D Secure protocol is a fraud protection system used to ensure the security of your payments. If your bank offers this extra security measure but your card is not yet part of this programme, you can activate the service completely free of charge on your bank or credit card’s website, setting a password for your personal information.
Once activated, when you make a purchase online, you will be prompted to enter your chosen password to establish your identity as the cardholder.
To find out whether your credit card already supports 3-D Secure, please ask your credit card company.
