    Are any of you know of a travel agent that can help me book intra island flights in French Polynesia? I am in desperate need of help.

    I'm looking for the following for 2 people:

    MOZ - (PPT - optional) - BOB - May 20th
    BOB - PPT - May 27th

    I'm having issues with the Air Tahiti not accepting my banks credit card and now the reservations are unable to be confirmed. The MOZ-PPT flights appear to be sold out or held under my reservations that I can't book. My only option is seems from their site now is to take the ferry to PPT from MOZ then fly to BOB from there.

    I'm concerned if I continue to wait that the other flights will sell out.

    Appreciate any help with a travel agent or other tip to get these flights booked.

    I'm a little bit confused. You mentioned MOZ-PPT being the problem but don't mention when you're looking to fly MOZ-PPT, listing only MOZ-BOB-PPT.

    Travelocity can book French Polynesia domestic flights on Air Tahiti (VT).

    When I booked my own PPT-BOB flights I actually had Randy's shop do it, I don't think he offers the service but BoardingArea.com used ot actually be a travel agency. (I also had him issue tickets for a KQ intra-Africa flight for me, back when KQ tickets were handwritten paper, KQ didn't accept credit cards, and if you bought directly form the airline they wanted you to mail in a check and they would wait for the check to clear before sending you itckets.. hah! An agency they at least wouldn't wait for the check to clear on :) ).

    PPT-MOZ is not a big deal by ferry though of course it makes it less convenient to connect straight on from an arriving international flight.

    Thanks on the Travelocity tip Gary. Confirmed that there are still two flights available from MOZ to PPT (MOZ to BOB flight is sold out), one around 7 AM and the other around 6 PM.

    I think with those options, I'll end up taking the ferry back to PPT then hopping a segment from PPT to BOB.

    I was able to finally book a flight. Appears the first trouble I had was due to their site not accepting amex while saying that they do. I re-booked with Mastercard and all is well.​
    Now on to booking dinner reservations..:)
