What is “Rumbo”?
It is a way of getting a discount from particular flight ticket sellers when you pay with particular types of both debit and credit cards. Standardly, you can get a 10-40 EUR discount. As far as very cheap air tickets are concerned, prices can get as low as several Euro cents for a ticket.
How It Works and Where
It is a certain way of promotion when the seller prefers paying with particular types of cards and offers tickets at discounted prices if you use them. You can use this system usually on buying a ticket from Ryanair, and other low-cost companies. If you have bought Wizzair or Voloea memberships, you can’t apply their membership discount, unfortunately.
The list of sellers providing this kind of discount is quite long. First, we need to mention Rumbo.esafter which gave its name to this process. Other servers are eDreams.es, lastminute.es, bravofly.es, Jetcost.es, but also their variations, such as .fr or .pt. Also, try out viajar.com
The list of cards for which the mentioned servers provide discounts is quite long and different servers use different cards. To confuse it even more, it all changes in the course of time. Sometimes you can get a discount if you pay with the Debit Mastercard, but it doesn’t happen too often. Usually, you can get a discount with Diners Club or Maestro cards. You can also encounter discounts when you pay with prepaid credit cards such as Viabuy and EntroPay.
A Few Examples
Now, let’s have a look at a few examples. The example no. 1: We want two return flight tickets from Prague to Naples. At the Easyjet website we look up tickets with departure dates from 4th to 6th of February and change the currency to EUR so that we could have a better comparison – EUR 106.14 per person.
