You warrant that you are at least 18 years of age and possess the legal authority to enter into this agreement and to use the Site in accordance with all Terms & Conditions stated herein.

We have the right to remove any material or posting you make on the Site if, in our opinion, such material does not comply with these Terms & Conditions.
For your convenience, our use of the following terms in these Terms & Conditions shall have the meaning below:
1. "Service Element" - a singular product or service listed on the Site that can be booked independently of any other service. (e.g.: car, hotel, flight).
2. "Travel Supplier" - a vendor of one or more Service Elements. (e.g.: hotels, car suppliers, airlines). We do not act as principal but make arrangements with third-party vendor Travel Suppliers for Service Elements, all as defined above.
3. "Booking" - a negotiation process with the Travel Supplier carried out by you while using this Site for the purpose of obtaining one or more Service Elements that may result in a contract with the Travel Supplier at the time we receive full payment and accept your offer.
In order to complete a Booking the following steps are taken to ensure its validity:
1. When we place Service Elements on our Site, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase.
2. You do not make this offer until you press "Book" on the payment page (entitled "Review Trip Details and Book") of the Site.
3. Once you have done so you have made TRAVOPEDIA an offer (which cannot be withdrawn if you change your mind) to purchase the relevant Service Element(s) from the relevant Travel Supplier(s) (your "Booking").
We are free to accept your offer on behalf of the relevant Travel Supplier or to reject it, at our sole discretion.
The TRAVOPEDIA email confirmation is NOT the contractual acceptance of the Booking, but merely an acknowledgement that we have received your offer. We will need to check the availability of the relevant Service Element(s).
If the relevant Service Element is available, your Booking will be processed. The contract pertaining to the relevant Booking is formed when payment in full has been received.
The terms of your Booking (such as price, availability and/or dates of travel) are not guaranteed until a contract is formed between you and the Travel Supplier and a ticket has been issued and/or a reservation has been made and confirmed by the Travel Supplier.

In addition to the required government-issued ID as stated above, proof of citizenship (Passport) is required for international travel (for most countries outside of the United States). Please note that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that you meet the passport, visa, and/or health requirements of the countries you wish to visit and those that you transit (even if it is for a simple flight change).

For any itineraries where changes are permitted, an exchange/change fee is charged by TRAVOPEDIA plus airline penalties in addition to fare difference.

Most of our airline tickets are 100% non-refundable and non-changeable. In certain cases where the airline may allow cancellations, a credit may be valid towards a future ticket purchase by the same traveler to travel on the same airline as per airline's terms & conditions. An applicable penalty and a fare difference (if any), will be added in these cases. Usually the credit issued by the airline supplier is valid with time constraints and a specific expiration date and should be discussed 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. A cancellation fee of $50 per person per ticket must be paid to us at the time of cancelling the booking; we retain this fee. The credit will be held for a limited time period, please ask the customer service agent for the specific date by when you must use this credit or you will lose the credit amount. When you are ready to make the new booking, you will have to the pay fare difference (if any), applicable airline penalties for that fare and TRAVOPEDIA's exchange fees. All such changes are governed by the airlines' rules and regulations and are out of our control. TRAVOPEDIA does not provide any representations or guarantees on changes or fees. If you are cancelling the booking and applying for a refund please read our Refunds Policy. Read more about our Change Policy if you wish to exchange the tickets for new dates or routing.
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.
If your Itinerary consists of more than one airline, therefore two separate fare rules will be used, different rules and policies (for example, for baggage fees, change fees, and refunds) may apply in each direction or for each airline. For changes, refunds, exchanges, each airline may charge separately. In case of Schedule change or cancellations: if your initial flight is cancelled or the schedule is changed by either you or the airline, the other airline with which you booked your return flight is not obligated to issue a refund or change your itinerary. 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.

The value of discount may vary based on fare type, availability, seasonality, referral source and destinations. Such discounts may continuously change and vary.

Please note the following points:
In order to provide you with further protection, when certain transactions are determined to be high-risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it's safe to process them. In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank and ask for related documentation.
Most tickets are electronic (e-Tickets); however with certain itineraries where an e-Ticket is not available a paper ticket will be issued. Please check the shipping charges before confirming the booking. If an e-Ticket could not be issued for a particular reservation or if a delivery was being made of another product or service, TRAVOPEDIA will send the paper ticket, product or service through a secure mode of delivery (a reputable carrier company) and the applicable shipping charges will be debited to the credit holder's account as per rates published on the Site. These shipping charges are displayed before you make the booking and you may select not to purchase the tickets to avoid shipping charges. TRAVOPEDIA does not assume any responsibility for the fault of the delivery company. We will attempt to redeliver but do not provide any guarantees for redelivery on time. If you provide an incorrect address, then you may have to pay excess fees to the delivery company for alteration of the address. You will be billed to the credit card used for payment. If an e-Ticket is generated the ticket information will be available on the Site.
All credit cards must have a verifiable US, Canadian or other country billing address. To see the list of countries where credit cards are accepted, click the drop menu down in the check-out page.
All bookings and fares are not guaranteed until ticketed by the supplier. For hotels, car rentals, and vacation packages, bookings are not guaranteed unless you receive a confirmation number via email.
When you submit your credit or debit card for a purchase, we request an authorization for the amount of your anticipated transaction (placing a temporary "hold" on the funds). If for some reason we are unable to confirm your booking, you will not be charged and we will request that such hold be released by your credit or debit card bank; until then, funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for other purposes.
TRAVOPEDIA bears no responsibility in the event your credit or debit card is not approved or charged. There can be many reasons why your credit or debit card may not have been approved or charged. Examples of these maybe:
In such instances where the fare may have increased, you will be provided with alternate options and you have the right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. When the booking is ticketed at the cost originally quoted to you the ticket becomes non-refundable and non-cancellable. If your credit card declines at the time of processing your transaction, we will make all efforts to notify you by email within 72 hours. The transaction will not be processed if your credit card has been declined. The fare and any other booking details are not guaranteed. If there is a fare change you have a right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. There will be no service fees charged for this.
You agree to be liable for any and all credit card payments and you agree not to dispute charges after the purchase has been made and your tickets and/or other products have been delivered by email confirmation or have been shipped to you. You agree to reimburse TRAVOPEDIA in cases of charge back or credit card disputes where you have genuinely purchased a service on our website.
Online credit card transactions are authorized at the time a user or anyone acting on their behalf accepts these Terms & Conditions and continues with the purchase.
When certain transactions are determined to be high risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it's safe to process them. In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
Please note that your seats, meals, frequent flyer and other special requests are requests only. The airline reserves the right to apply any revisions to the requested seat allocation without notification. All requests should be verified with the airline. We do not guarantee you will be assigned the seat you have requested. We also do not guarantee that your meal, frequent flyer and other special requests will be confirmed by the airline. It is therefore recommended you contact your airline directly to confirm these requests. Click here to view the list of airlines and phone numbers.
If you have excess baggage, you will have to pay any excess baggage fee assessed by each airline. As most airlines now charge baggage fees even for the first bag checked-in, we recommend traveling light to reduce these costs. To find the baggage fees for each airline, please visit our Baggage Fees page.
Baggage fees range from $15 up to $200 or more depending on the size and weight of the bag and is per checked bag. These fees are to be paid directly to airline upon using such service. We make an effort to keep the baggage fees table updated but we recommend you contact the airline directly for the latest fees on check baggage and policy as it relates to baggage.
When there are two or more airlines involved for connecting flights, you may have to reclaim your bags at the connecting airport and check-in again to continue your journey. In these cases, if you have excess baggage, you will have to pay any excess baggage fee assessed by each airline.
For flights within the U.S., federal rules require any limit on an airline's baggage liability to be at least $3,300 per passenger. For international travel (including domestic portions of international journeys) different liability limitations apply to the loss, delay, or damage to baggage. If the Montreal Convention applies, the limit is 1,131 Special Drawing Rights (approximately $1700) per passenger unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. If the Warsaw Convention applies, the limit is approximately $9.07 per pound ($20.00 per kilogram) for checked baggage and $400 per passenger for unchecked baggage unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. Excess valuation may not be declared on certain types of valuable articles. Airlines assume no liability for fragile or perishable articles. Further information may be obtained from the airline.
From time to time and depending on the airline operating your flight(s), we may provide you with the option to purchase any Airline Optional Services and Products in connection with your ticket(s), which may include, without limitation pre-reserved seat assignment and checked baggage.
You acknowledge that we are acting as a marketing agent with regard to any airline optional services and products. We strongly encourage you to contact the operating carrier to resolve any issues concerning the use and availability of any such services and products.
Airline Policy on Schedule Changes:
We make every attempt to notify the customer of any schedule changes. It is always best to contact the airline to reconfirm you flights within 72 hours of departure. If any Schedule changes happen from airlines within 48hrs of flight departure we will not able to inform you of the same. Thus we always advise you to reconfirm flights before leaving for airport or within last 24hrs as well.
Reasons for cancellations or schedule changes may include peak or high travel seasons, low travel season, airport terminal or gate changes, fuel prices, civil unrest, natural disasters – volcano, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc., bankruptcy. TRAVOPEDIA does not assume any liability whatsoever for cancelled flights, flights that are missed, or flights not connecting due to any scheduled changes made by the airlines.
If an airline has a change to any of its flights within a 4 hour period of your original flight times, we will notify you of such change by email. We will attempt to contact you via other information provided by you, but; if we are unable to get in touch with you, our email will serve as final notice.
For all such changes within a 4 hour period, tickets will remain non-refundable. Certain ticket types may be non-refundable even when the schedule change is over 4 hours. TRAVOPEDIA does not assume any liability whatsoever for cancelled flights, flights that are missed, or flights not connecting due to any scheduled changes made by the airlines.
If you have already arrived at the airport you will need to speak with an agent at the airline counter. During severe weather, options may be limited and although it is sunny where you are there may be bad weather at your destination or connection cities. You should always check the airlines website and weather channels for airport updates. It is always best to contact the airline directly, if it is the date of departure.
It is best for the customer to reconfirm their flights with the airlines 24 to 72 hours prior to departure, especially if they are already traveling. You should periodically check emails for updates regarding flight schedules and respond in a timely manner.
Depending on departure date and when we receive the change from the airline we will attempt to send at least 3 emails and call at least 1 time. If you do not contact either TRAVOPEDIA or the airline prior to your departure you may miss your flights, lose the value of your tickets and possibly have your travel postponed by 1 or 2 days or even a few weeks before the airline can accommodate you.
Once you have contacted TRAVOPEDIA we will contact the airline on your behalf and try to come to a resolution. In some cases the only resolution may result in cancellation of the flight and refund. If a customer does not fulfill their obligation, they may miss their flight or lose the value of their reservation, and other options may not be available.
We will make every attempt to get the airlines in question to re-protect the customer. It ultimately depends on the airline or airlines involved. If the airline is unable to re - protect the customer we will request a refund.
In the event that a flight is cancelled, TRAVOPEDIA will attempt to contact the airline, find other flight options and/or discuss refund options.
Airline flights may be overbooked, and there is a slight chance that a seat will not be available on a flight for which a person has a confirmed reservation. If the flight is overbooked, no one will be denied a seat until an airline personnel first asks for volunteers willing to give up their reservation in exchange for compensation of the airline's choosing. If there are not enough volunteers, the airline may deny boarding to other persons in accordance with its particular boarding priority. With few exceptions, including
The complete rules for the payment of compensation and each airline's boarding priorities are available at all airport ticket counters and boarding locations. Some airlines do not apply these consumer protections to travel from some foreign countries, although other consumer protections may be available. Check with the airline or call us for details.
Tickets will not be sold directly to unaccompanied minors age 18 and under. Each airline sets its own policies and regulations for children traveling without adult supervision. Please check with the airline directly for minor age requirements, as the following items may change:
Many airlines may require additional fees to be paid at check-in. You must call the airline to verify rules and restrictions for unaccompanied minor(s) traveling alone.
All customers are advised to verify travel documents (transit visa/entry visa) for the country through which they are transiting and/or entering.
