We know customers are concerned about credit card security. Aquaventures uses one of the worlds largest funds transfer agencies – PayPal. If you choose to use a PayPal account, your personal credit card information will not be given to Aquaventures.
Similarly you can pay with Revolut – which again means no personal credit card information will be given to Aquaventures.
If you prefer not to use a credit card online (or debit card) for security then contact Aquaventures for bank details to pay via INET / Online Banking transfer.
