Payment Options

New payment methods: SOFORT Überweisung and giropay

SOFORT Überweisung

This free direct transfer method allows you to transfer payments in real time. During the order transaction, you are redirected to the SOFORT Überweisung site, where you simply log in with your online banking information and confirm the payment transaction with a TAN. Once the payment has been processed, you will be redirected back to the Air Canada booking confirmation page.


This popular online payment method is offered by more than 1,500 banks and Sparkassen in Germany and can be used by over 35 million online banking customers without any additional registration requirements. Using PIN and TAN based online banking services, giropay offers simple, quick and secure payment via online transfer. All you need is an online banking giro account with a participating bank or Sparkasse.

When you select giropay as your payment method on the payment page, you will be redirected to your participating bank's secure online banking service. Log in as usual using your login credentials. Once you have successfully logged in, a transfer form will appear, with all details such as invoice amount or purpose already filled in. You can conveniently confirm your order by entering a TAN. The amount will be debited directly from your account, and your airline ticket will be issued immediately. Once the payment process has been completed, you will be redirected back to the Air Canada booking confirmation page.
