Book Now, Pay Later


With Malaysia Airlines’ Book Now, Pay Later option, you are now able to secure your preferred booking and fare for the next 72 hours by simply paying the holding fee. This gives you plenty of time to firm up your plans before you make your purchase. You may proceed to pay the full fare within the hold period once you are sure of your travels.


How does Book Now, Pay Later work?

1. Choose your flight and select our Book Now, Pay Later option at the payment page.

2. You will be required to pay a fee to guarantee your booking and flight.

3. Once you pay the holding fee, you will receive an email confirmation with your booking reference together with the final payment deadline.

4. Once you’ve decided, you can pay the full fare within the hold period to avoid any cancellation.


Important Information:

  • Please note that once you have opted for the Book Now, Pay Later option, your booking will be secured up to 72 hours from the time of booking. Extension of payment deadline for this service is not possible.
  • Payment of fare must be made in full  within the holding period.
  • If full payment is not made on time, your booking will be cancelled and the holding fee will be forfeited.
  • The holding fee is non-refundable.
