If an error message shows when using your card to pay on the website or App and you do not receive an e-mail with your tickets, this may be due to:

  • An error in the card number, CVV or expiry date.
  • The secure e-payment option is not activated on your card.
  • Insufficient balance on the card.
  • Connection failure.

Normally, if an error message shows, the transaction is not completed and the amount is not charged to your card.

If you are charged for a ticket that is not issued, our security system will detect the error and automatically reimburse the amount within the hour.

Card authentication error

If the secure Internet purchase option is activated on your card, when you conduct an online transaction some businesses will ask you for the card verification number, which your bank will have sent to you by SMS.

If this number is entered incorrectly, the transaction will be cancelled and the message "Card authentication error" will show.

Likewise, if the time given to enter the number lapses, the system will report an error and you will have to request a new number.

What does “Card not supported” mean?

If you receive the message "Card not supported" during the purchase process, this means that the type of card you have used is not recognised by the system.

Alsa accepts all bank cards, including foreign cards, providing they are Visa, MasterCard, Maestro or American Express.
