This website was designed to be as user-friendly, informative and secure as possible. Please read these terms and conditions to learn more about the website as well as our responsibilities and yours in using it. If you are not willing to agree to these provisions, please do not use the website.
This website is intended to provide services primarily for residents of North America and Canada.
Our website provides extensive information related to travel for you, our customer. It contains information about vacation destinations, tour packages and travel providers as well as airfares, flight schedules and cruise details. It also contains information for travelers about insurance and foreign currencies.
We receive this information from third-party sources such as airlines, hotels, tour operators and transportation providers. We always take reasonable care to make sure this information is accurate and up-to-date. However, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information or that it is the most current information available.
As a traveler, you must know and understand the applicable legal requirements related to travel, including passport, visa and health requirements. We will assist you in this regard, both through our website and with live support. However, the ultimate responsibility for obtaining this information and complying with any and all passport, visa, health or other requirements remains solely and exclusively with you.
We strive to provide you with the most current information available concerning tour packages, flight schedules, travel destinations and prices on our website. However, please understand that all the information on our website is subject to change without prior notice. Also, travel products, packages and services described on our website are subject to availability.
Baggage Policy: Each airline has its own policies regarding baggage allowances, fees and restrictions. These policies differ from airline to airline and can change at any time. We try our best to display current baggage fee information on this website, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Ultimately, you are responsible for verifying your airline’s baggage policies and fees before your departure. Also, please be aware that baggage fees are not included in the cost of your trip.
Schedule change: Changes to flight schedules, including flight cancellations, can occur for any number of reasons, including bad weather, mechanical problems, crew issues and civil unrest. When this happens, we do our best to notify our customers of any changes to their itinerary, by phone and/or email. However, sometimes the airline does not provide advance notice of the change or cancellation. For this reason, we recommend that you telephone your airline or check your flight status online 24 hours before your scheduled departure.
If your flight has been cancelled, please call us at 1-800-717-5015. We will work directly with the airline on your behalf to find out what options are available and figure out a solution for you. However, if you don’t find out about the cancellation until you’re already at the airport, or are in-between flights, we recommend you work directly with the airline staff to figure out a solution. Please note that in some cases, especially during bad weather, your options may be limited.
All prices displayed on our website are subject to change at any time without prior notice. Airfare is only guaranteed once the purchase has been completed and the tickets have been issued. Airlines and other travel suppliers may change their prices without notice.
If a price increase occurs after you have made a reservation that affects your travel package, we will notify you of the price increase before taking any further steps. However, no price increases will affect your travel package once your reservation has been finalized.
All reservations are non-refundable unless otherwise stated. If you find that you must cancel a reservation for any reason, please contact us. We will do all we can to assist you in this process. However, please be aware that even if your cancellation is allowed and your reservation is thus refundable, it may be subject to an administrative cancellation fee of CAD150.00 per passenger for international flights, CAD125 for trans-border flights between Canada and the USA and CAD 75 for domestic flights.
For U.S. and Canada bookings, even if your ticket is nonrefundable:
- Within same day midnight you may cancel your booking and receive a full refund, subject to our cancellation fees.
- All reservations are also non-changeable and non-transferable unless otherwise stated. If you need to make a change to your reservation and that change is allowed, please be aware that such change is subject to a fee of $75 per passenger for domestic flights, $125.00 for trans-border flights and $150.00 for all other flights. There may also be fees or differences in price charged by any third-party suppliers (e.g., airlines, hotels, cruise lines, etc.) included in your reservation.
Please be aware that once you have made a reservation, name changes are not allowed. If you find you need to change or correct the spelling of a name after you’ve made a reservation, you will have to cancel your original reservation—if allowed—and then make a new reservation with a new flight at the then-current rate using the correct spelling of the name. This will likely incur fees and penalties. Therefore, it is imperative—and your responsibility—to verify the spelling of the names of all passengers before making your reservation.
The rate applied on the date of issuance of the ticket is only valid for a ticket fully utilized and in the sequential order of flight segments on the dates indicated. Improper use may void the ticket and result in cancellation of the entire trip.
Pricing is displayed in US and/or Canadian currency.
Some banks and credit card companies charge a fee for international transactions. They will appear on your credit or bank card statement as a foreign or international transaction fee. For example, if you make a travel reservation through our website from outside the United States using a U.S. credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and may charge you a fee for the conversion. The amount of the charge appearing on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and different than the purchase amount shown on the billing summary page for the reservation.
In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside the United States.
Booking international travel through our website may be considered an international transaction by the bank or credit card company since flighttrotters.ca may pass your payment on to an international travel supplier.
Your bank or credit card company determines the currency exchange rate and the amount of the foreign transaction fee on the day it processes the transaction. Please contact your bank or credit card company should you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your transaction.
Booking notification: Once your purchase is complete, you should receive an email titled “Booking Notification.” Your booking may provide you with a confirmation number before a ticket has been issued. If this is the case, the booking process is not complete and the fare is subject to change until a ticket is issued.
Once your ticket has been issued, you should receive your electronic ticket.
We strongly recommend that you re-confirm your flight reservation with the airline 24 hours prior to departure for domestic flights, and 72 hours prior to departure for international flights.
Please note that requesting specific seats, meals, frequent flyers etc. are requests only. The airline reserves the right to make revisions to the seat allocation without notification. All requests should be confirmed with the airline and we cannot guarantee that passengers will be assigned the seats they’ve requested. Furthermore, we are unable to promise that your meal/frequent flyer/other special requests will be confirmed by the airline in question. Please ensure that you contact the airline you’ve booked with in order to confirm the requests you’ve made.
On our website, we offer a variety of travel products and services for our customers. However, we do not represent or warrant that any of these travel products and services are or will be suitable and proper for you.
You agree to release us from any claims relative to the travel products and services detailed on our website, including but not limited to claims that these travel products and services are not or were not suitable for you.
From time to time we offer “specials” on our website. This section applies to all specials we offer on this website. As well, all the terms and conditions spelled out above apply to specials we offer on this website.
Specials are only available for a limited time. Please contact us if need be to determine whether a special shown on our website is still available.
Specific terms and conditions may apply to any special shown on our website. Please contact either us or the third-party provider of the special to determine what terms and conditions apply to that special, if any, and how they may affect you.
Payment for any special that you book and that we confirm is due within 72 hours of our confirmation, unless otherwise agreed to by us in writing. If you fail to pay for the special within this 72-hour timeframe, your booking may be cancelled. We accept no responsibility for any loss you incur as a result of cancellation for non-payment within 72 hours.
