I have in the past (ca. 2 years ago) successfully booked and stayed at Airbnbs using another person's credit card, without the card holder staying with me. It is fine. I also agree with @Berwyn that once the booking has gone through you are fine. Some airlines do have the hassle of asking for the credit card used for the booking at check in and once I did ...

arbnb charges the credit card as soon as the booking is accepted. If the payment goes through then airbnb has accepted it. If the payment has not been reversed in the day or two afterwards, you should have nothing to worry about.

The consequences (for you) depend what kind of card it is (is it a pre-paid card, a debit/check card or a credit card); however as a simple matter if the card has no balance - and no "overcharge" feature, the request will be rejected with a notice stating the same.

It depends on which Airline you use, like Qatar Airways ask you in advance to get an official permission from the card owner in case he is not flying with you, other airlines mostly in EU countries doesn't ask. so let us know which airline you are willing to use.

When you have your ticket, you have it. There should be no issues. If there would have been an issue, it would have happened at the moment of booking - the credit card payment would not have gone through, and your booking would not have completed. As it obviously got through, all is fine. The airline has their money, so they couldn't care less anymore.

800 and 8xx toll-free numbers are blocked when called from other countries, with exception of Canada and US territories. Rules change all the time, so there may be some exceptions, but that is the normal rule. However, there is another type of exception created by telephone services. Many cell phone providers put toll-free calls through for you by ...

For assistance with reservations, please contact your local United ticket office, or your travel agent. So you can't book a flight ...

You can just buy the ticket on United's web site and then use the "purchase eraser" option from C1 to refund the price of the ticket. For United, it's an ordinary paid ticket, so you get PQM. I have a similar card from HSBC, same deal, as far as the airline's concerned it's a paid ticket.
