Secure Payment works and works well. However, we wouldn’t be able to operate our service if it were not for the assistance and co-operation of the Greek Alpha Bank, and its staff.

Our sophisticated systems allow you to enter the amount to be sent, press ‘send’, and sit back in the knowledge the funds will be delivered safely and securely to the Athens Tours Greece account.
VISA or MASTERCARD | Group Athens Tours Greece
We guarantee that every transaction carried out by Group Athens Tours Greece is 100% safe. Each operation, which implies the transmission of personal information or bank details, is carried out within a safe environment. Group Athens Tours Greece uses a secure server, which uses a protocol called SSL (Secure Socked Layer) to ensure the secure transfer of information via encryption.
In this way, the credit card details are only known and handled by the bank, whereas the order and client details are known and handled only by the trader.
In an effort to provide greater security to credit card owners, we have now updated our website to include the latest security measures for online commerce developed by VISA and MASTERCARD. These are known as 3D Secure Code (Verified by VISA) and SPA/UCAF (Mastercard Secure Code). In this way, if you are a holder of a “Secure enabled” card, you will always be able to make a payment with a VISA or MASTERCARD on our website.
When making a VISA or MASTERCARD payment, customers will be asked to supply the following information:
- Pick-up Location: ATHENS CENTER
- Drop-Off Location: ATHENS CENTER
- The credit card number
- The expiry date
- The validation code, which refers to the last 3 digits printed on the back of the credit card.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please DO NOT FORGET to mention at the ‘more information section’, the TOUR or the TRANSFER you pay for!
In this way, we are able to guarantee even greater security for online transactions.
What is Verified by Visa and Mastercard Secure Code?
The main objective of this protocol is to offer greater security both to the Internet user and to the commercial online companies, by authenticating the buyer as the legitimate holder of the card being used for payment.
In practice, if you choose to make a payment with your “secure enabled” VISA or MASTERCARD, you will be asked to provide your credit card number and expiry date as before, and also a password or PIN for exclusive use when making online payments.
This password will identify the customer, unequivocally, as the owner of the card. In this way, no one will be able to make an online payment without first having knowledge of the afore-mentioned password. If a “secure enabled” card is required to make payment the logos below will appear on the page asking for credit card details.
If you have not yet received a PIN or password for exclusive use when making online payments, we advise you to contact the financial institution that issued your card and request that this service is applied so that you can benefit from secure online purchases. This is possible either by contacting your bank or making an online request.
