You need to complete your booking quickly. After you have chosen your funfare tickets they are only kept for you for a few minutes, so if you are too slow you will need to repeat the process. Have your credit card or debit card ready. As well as the card number and dates you will need to enter the "security number" (usually this is the last 3 numbers printed on the back of the card). You will need to print your ticket, so it is convenient if you are connected to a printer at the time of booking (if not, you can print it later using the booking details, which are sent to the e-mail address which you give).
[If you need an explanation of the booking process, see: Shop/Company/NationalExpress]
