I am trying to book a flight from Bangkok to Denpasar via the airasia website, and when I am about to pay a window pops up warning me to make sure the currency that the flight price is displayed in matches the currency I am paying with. It says I can update this on the "Select Flight" page, but I cant find any option to change the currency from THB to Canadian dollars.
Has anyone else had this problem? would it really matter if the price is reflected in THB and I am paying in Canadian dollars?

I'm not sure. Whenever I book the price is invariably in Thai Baht or Indonesian rupiah, but I pay with an Australian credit card so I get billed in A$. Seems to work for me.

In the upper part of the Air Asia website, there is a box that allows you to change your country. Unfortunately, there is no option for Canada.
AFAIK, you can pay for a ticket in baht, etc and the credit card company will do the conversion automatically for you.
I'm Canadian too and regularly pay for Air Asia flights using my Canadian credit card. It doesn't matter whether the currency is Baht, Ringgit, etc. it'll appear on your statement in Canadian dollars at whatever the Canadian bank exchange rate is.
Awesome thanks for letting me know :) I will go ahead and book.

I've noticed this too. You definitely used to be able to change the currency easily before you booked, now I can never find the option. It's not a massive problem but it would be nice to see it in £ before I booked - when I checked my credit card statement what I'd been charged was about £15 more than what I had expected
Setting my location to UK doesnt seem to help, it always displays prices in the currency of the departing country I'm booking.
