My credit card was declined, but it still got charged!

If the transaction has been denied for any reason, your credit card or debit card will not be charged by GotoBus/TakeTours. However, your bank (not our bank or our credit card processor) may have set funds aside during the authorization request. Banks will release these funds between three and 30 business days after the transaction or upon use of your credit card or debit card.

We offer our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience, but there is absolutely nothing Gotobus can do to prevent it. Customers who feel their funds are being held too long should contact the bank that issued their card. This phone number is generally located on the back of the card.
