All Airline Refunds/Future Credits are subject to each airline fare rules, policies and procedures
Service fees on all changes, refunds, cancellations and future credits will be charged on a per passenger, per ticket basis. Most "no show" bookings are in-eligible for any waiver from suppliers for a refund.
Like our transaction service fees (booking fees), all post-ticketing service fees are non-refundable and are subject to change without notice. Our fees are in addition to any airline and/or other supplier-imposed fees and charges.
Government imposed taxes and fees are subject to change. You will only be charged the final total amount displayed or quoted by our agent.
All Special Services are on a request basis ONLY and are subject to each airline's review and approval process along with their fare rules, policies and procedures. Special Service Fees will be charged upon the provision of the service(s) and will only be refunded if the request is denied by the airline.
Allow us to help you process your request efficiently by doing the following:
Name Spelling - Passengers name on their airline ticket needs to match their passport or other universally accepted government ID
Visa/Passport - Apply for a valid Visa/Passport prior to processing a request.
Lost, stolen or damaged baggage – Retain and provide information from receipts and baggage tags.
No-Show – Cancel your flight with the airline prior to its departure time
Denied Boarding – Provide documentation as to why you were denied boarding.
Duplicate Tickets – Provide copies of all tickets that reflect identical itineraries booked with us.
Changes to Flights Already Purchased
Any and all changes made to the itinerary are restricted as well as subject to airline fare rules, whichever is more restrictive; most of our tickets/hotels/cars/packages/cruises do not allow any date or name changes after the booking is completed. Global First Travel does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, any bookings or reservations made or confirmed by you in the event that the original itinerary has been changed by the supplier pursuant to customer's request.
In certain cases where the airline may allow cancellations, a credit may be valid towards a future ticket purchased by the same traveler on the same airline. Usually the credit issued by the airline supplier has a specific expiration date, after which it cannot be used. We encourage you to discuss additional restrictions attached to your credit with a customer service agent. All such bookings where the cancellation may be permitted must be cancelled prior to the scheduled departure time of the first flight segment by calling our customer service center. We do not guarantee any cancellation. When you are ready to make your new booking and wish to use your airline credit, you will be required to the pay fare difference (if any), applicable airline penalties and any applicable Global First Travel post-ticketing fees. All such changes are governed by each airlines' fare rules, policies and procedures, which are not under our control.
No additional representation is made for our exchange fees except that an agent will assist you in locating your desired new flights and attempt to re-book the new flights based on availability and other factors.
Multiple Airline Itineraries
If your itinerary includes flights operated by more than one airline, please read carefully each such airline’s terms and conditions, which can be found on each such airline’s website. Each such airline will have its own restrictions, rules and fees. If one of these flights is affected by an airline change (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling) that causes a passenger to make changes to the other flight, the passenger may be responsible for any fees or ticket cost incurred for making changes to the unaffected flight. Such airlines may charge their own fees for changes, refunds, or if exchanges are requested. You are responsible for complying with each airline's terms and conditions, which may differ (for example, check-in times and limits on baggage size/weight). It is advisable you print your outbound and return portions of your e-ticket confirmation for all flights prior to travelling. You may be asked for proof of your return ticket at check-in.
