Passing through a UK airport on the way to another country is allowed in two cases:

By air, when you do not pass through the UK border control before embarking on your connecting journey, because you will remain at the airport throughout.

By land, when you are going to cross the UK border control, and you will return through it and leave the country within 24 hours.

The transaction may be declined for any number of reasons, including a high level of recent activity on your card, a lack of matching AVS information, or exceeding your credit limit. Contact your bank to find out why the transaction is being declined.

  • Decide to travel at a different time
  • Leave from or arrive at a different airport, port or train station than planned
  • Arrive in the UK more than 8 hours later than planned
