We have been trying to book tickets for Machu Picchu using the official website at www.machupicchu.gob.pe.
We can get as far as successfully making a reservation and then taking the first steps to pay by credit card. However, every time we enter our credit card details, the website gives us a message reading "Operacion Denegada", i.e. Operation Refused.
We are aware that the website only accepts Visa cards that have been enrolled with the "Verified by Visa" service. Our card has been successfully enrolled, but still will not work for the Machu Picchu website. As I understand it, any payment process involving a "Verified by Visa" card should ask for the password associated with the card - I have noticed that the Machu Picchu website never asks for this password.
Has anyone else had this kind of difficulty? Are we doing something wrong?
All replies gratefully received!
