Prices are in USA dollars. Any increased change in pricing quoted at time of booking to time of issuance of travel documents that is more than 7% of the booking quoted price, except any increase resulting from an increase in Retail Sales Tax or Federal Goods & Services Tax, shall entitle the customer to cancel the booking and obtain a full refund. Any price increases occurring after issuance of travel documents are our responsibility, except for increases in Retail Sales Tax or Federal Goods & Services Tax. No price increases are permitted once payment has been made in full and travel documents have been issued.
Confirmation: In some circumstances, your booking will provide you with a confirmation number before a ticket has been issued. The booking process is not complete until you have received a ticket number. In some cases, due to unforeseen errors we may be unable to honor a fare quoted. Credit Card: You agree to authorize the ticket issuer to charge your credit card number the amount that is shown as the Grand Total.
Flight Reconfirmation: Outbound and return flights must be reconfirmed with the relevant airlines at least 72 hours prior to the commencement of that leg of the journey unless specifically informed otherwise by that airline. We accept no responsibility for bookings cancelled due to non-compliance with rules set by that particular airline. We also take no responsibility for any flight rescheduling en route.
Passports/Visas/Health Requirements: Prior to booking your trip, you should ensure that you meet the passport, visa, affidavit, health and other requirements of the countries you wish to visit and those that you transit (even if it is for a plane change). USA citizens are required to present a current valid passport for entry or transit through most countries; otherwise, entry or transit may be denied. We remind you that living standards and practices at your travel destination and the conditions there with respect to the provision of utilities, services and accommodation may differ from those found in USA.
Please note that many countries require that your passport be valid for a period of (a minimum) six months beyond your return date (please see chart below for easy reference). Obtaining passports and visas may require lengthy processing times and entry to another country may be refused even if your required information and travel documents are complete. We accept no responsibility if you should be denied boarding or deported for any reason including your age.
Entry Requirements for United States: The department of Homeland Security of the United States of America has introduced new laws effective January 23, 2007 governing the entry requirements to the United States by air. These new laws include mandatory passports for all travelers including Canadian and American citizens. Please ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months past your desired return date to ensure that there are not any delays in regards to US Immigration.
Insurance: We strongly recommend travel insurance to cover you for cancellation, health, baggage and other losses including out-of-province health insurance, if applicable. For every sale, Transam Travel offers the option to purchase travel insurance to cover the customer against any unforeseen circumstances that may occur prior to, during or after your trip. There are different types of insurance packages available and the purchase of insurance is an optional decision to the customer.
It is the customers responsibility to read and familiarize themselves with the travel insurance policy to understand what their purchased travel insurance covers and under what conditions. If the customer wants to make an insurance claim it is their responsibility to contact Transam Travel as soon as possible. Please contact us if you require more information regarding travel insurance.
Cancellation / Changes: If you need to change or cancel your travel plans, it is your responsibility to notify us in writing of such a request. Notifying us is not enough in many cases as we have automated software to issue many of our tickets instantly. These tickets are discount tickets, which have restrictions on them and may be up to 100% non-refundable and non-changeable. Therefore you should assume all reservations are non-refundable the moment you make the booking. We charge a service fee for any changes or cancellations to fares. In addition to our charges, most airlines also have a penalty or cancellation fee for any changes or cancellations to fares. Customers who do not appear or 'no show' for their flight will forfeit the entire fare paid. If you arrive at the airport late or are denied boarding you will forfeit the entire fare paid.
Lost Tickets: If you lose your tickets, it may be possible to re-issue them for a fee. The amount payable will depend on the circumstances of the loss and how close to the travel date you discover it. However, not all tickets can be re-issued; which is another good reason for ensuring you have sufficient insurance cover. Tickets will be dispatched to you in accordance with your instructions and we accept no responsibility for their delivery.
Frequent Flyer Programs: Almost all of our Airfares allow accumulation of frequent flyer miles. You enter your frequent flyer program and number in our booking process. Your frequent flyer information is sent to the airline once your ticket is issued. Air Canada Aeroplan points are available on all of our flights at the time of booking. You have the opportunity to add your Aeroplan number after your booking is made as well, with the exception of Air Canada Tango fares. Aeroplan numbers for Tango flights cannot be added after a booking has been made with Transam Travel.
