Please be aware that travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than other destinations. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU MEET ALL APPLICABLE FOREIGN ENTRY REQUIREMENTS AND HAVE ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION. The Company urges you to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information relating to particular international destinations can be found at the following websites: www.dot.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.faa.gov, www.treas.gov/ofac and www.cbp.gov.

According to the Department of Transportation’s website: disinsection is permitted under international law in order to protect public health, agriculture and the environment. The World Health Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization stipulate two approaches for aircraft disinsection: (1) spray the aircraft cabin, with an aerosolized insecticide, while passengers are on board or (2) spray or treat the aircraft's interior surfaces with a residual insecticide (residual method) while passengers are not on board. American Samoa has adopted a third method, in which aircraft are sprayed with an aerosolized insecticide while passengers are not on board. Although the Report of the Informal Consultation on Aircraft Disinsection sponsored by the World Health Organization (November 6-10, 1995) concluded that aircraft disinsection, if performed appropriately, would not present a risk to human health. The report also noted that some individuals may experience transient discomfort following aircraft disinsection by aerosol application. Under the Chicago Convention, which governs international civil aviation, a country could impose a disinsection requirement should it perceive a threat to its public health, agriculture or environment. Accordingly, you should check with your travel agent or airline reservations agent when booking flights or if you have questions about your final destination’s policy. For more information about disinsection or to review a list of airline contacts for disinsection and a list of countries that require disinsection, please visit the Department of Transportation’s website located at the following address: http://ostpxweb.dot.gov/policy/safetyenergyenv/disinsection.html

Purchases made on the Website are often transacted in different currencies, depending on your IP address and/or the currency that you select to make the purchase. You will be charged in the currency shown upon checkout. If you use a debit or credit card to make a purchase through the Website, please note that, due to fluctuations in exchange rates, the charge to your debit or credit card or the estimated charge amount we provide you, may differ based on the applicable exchange rate at the time you make your reservation compared to the exchange rate at the time the charge is reflected on your credit or debit card statement, which may be calculated through the use of third party application program interfaces or such other methods as we may later designate. In the event we determine we must credit your account, we will refund the exact amount in the currency initially charged. We will not be responsible for any exchange rate fluctuations that may cause variances in your debit or credit card statement. Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for transactions, without limitation for international transactions. Your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. This means the amount listed on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and therefore a different figure than the figure shown on the billing summary page for a reservation booked on the Website. In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed without limitation if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States of America. Booking international travel may be considered to be an international transaction by the bank or card company. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
The Company attempts to publish and maintain accurate prices and information for its airline services, and airlines provide the Company with the price and other information related to these services. In the event a service is listed by or provided to the Company at an incorrect price or with inaccurate information due to typographical error or other error in pricing or service information received from an airline, the Company and/or the airline retain the right to refuse or cancel any requests placed for such service prior to your method of payment being charged.
Frequent traveler awards, upgrades, vouchers and other discounts or incentives may not apply to the Company’s airline services.
Airlines often enter into what are referred to as "code share" agreements with other, select airline partners. This means on certain travel routes, the airline carrier selling or marketing the flight does not actually fly its own aircraft to the destination; instead, a partner airline is engaged via contract to fly to the destination. The partner airline is typically listed as "operated by." In most cases you will check in with your "operating" carrier; however, it is best to verify your flight check-in location with your ticketing carrier.
Federal law forbids the carriage of hazardous materials aboard aircraft in your luggage or on your person. A violation can result in imprisonment for up to ten years and penalties of $250,000 or more (49 U.S.C. 5124), depending on the circumstances. Hazardous materials include corrosives, radioactive materials, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, explosives and poisons. Examples include tear gases, fireworks, paints, lighter fluid, oxygen bottles and radio-pharmaceuticals. There are special exceptions for small quantities (up to 70 ounces total) of medicinal and toilet articles carried in your luggage and certain smoking materials carried on your person. See http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ash/ash_programs/hazmat/passenger_info/ for additional information.
You agree not to purchase a ticket(s) containing travel segments you will not use, such as "point-beyond", "hidden-city", or "back-to-back tickets" if prohibited by the applicable airline. You also agree not to purchase a round-trip ticket that you plan to use only for one-way travel if prohibited by the applicable airline. You acknowledge that most airlines prohibit all such practices/tickets, and that we do not guarantee the applicable airline will honor your ticket(s) if you engage in such practices. You agree to indemnify the Covered Parties against airline claims, on the basis of these or any other prohibited practices, for the difference between the full fare of your actual itinerary and the value of the ticket(s) you purchased.
Most airlines require flight coupons be used in sequential order. For airlines allowing use of a ticket for only one flight segment, if you do not cancel all or part of the flight itinerary/journey you will not use prior to the departure of any segment of your itinerary/journey, you may be forced to forfeit the entire value or any lesser portion of your airline ticket, depending on the applicable airline’s rules for the fare you’ve purchased.
Applicable government taxes and fees and airline fees are either included in your fare or are itemized separately on your checkout page to provide a trip cost. Tax rates in effect at the time you purchase your fare are applied to your ticket price. Retroactive tax rate increases may be the responsibility of the traveler. For international flights, exit and entry fees that are not included in your trip cost or that may be itemized separately on your checkout page may also be charged. A non-refundable fee may be applied per ticket to published price airline itineraries that include more than one carrier. Paper ticket fees, itinerary change, cancellation or refund fees, baggage fees and entry or exit fees on certain international flights may also apply to your itinerary. In no event shall Company be responsible for any tax, (excepting its income tax), duty or fee.
Service fees (i.e., for use of travel agencies) may be applicable and charged to you by certain third party vendors. Such service fees can vary depending upon the vendor/agency, and may be charged on a per ticket basis. If your itinerary requires paper tickets to be issued, shipping and handling fees may be charged. If your tickets are returned because they have been rerouted or are undeliverable, there may be an additional handling fee charged to you.
Itinerary changes, if permitted by the airline fare rules, may have a change fee charged by the applicable airline. Such change fees are charged on a per ticket basis and vary by market, airline and specific fare rule, but typically vary between $75.00 and $300.00 (USD). Itinerary change fees may exceed such amounts and itinerary changes may not be available. Such change fees are charged in addition to any applicable difference between ticket prices. Additionally, any changes to your itinerary that are made through the Company may incur additional processing fees.
We offer free cancelation if you cancel the booking made through us on phone or online within 24 Hours from getting the confirmation email.
Most of the airline tickets and service fees charged for booking the same are non-refundable after 24 hours of booking. Tickets maybe cancelled within 24 hours and upto 3 hours before the flight departure time. A cancellation fee of $50 will be applicable for any cancellations that occur after 24 hours of making the reservation, along with any charges as per the carrier, balance would remain as a credit that expires after one year.
In case of hotel bookings and rental car bookings, the amount paid is non-refundable under any circumstance. However, the service fees charged for making hotel bookings and rental car bookings may be refundable.
All cancellations pertaining to airline tickets, hotel bookings and rental car bookings need to be done over the phone or by sending a request on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will only accept refund request if the below mentioned conditions are met:
We are not able to provide any specific time frame in relation to the time that may require to process the requested refund. All the refund requests go through a stringent sequential format. Once the request for cancellation has been placed with our customer service agent, you will then be sent an e-mail notification from our end stating that the request has been received. However, receiving a notification does not ensure that you will receive a refund. The e-mail notification is just an acknowledgment that your request has been received and provides you with a tracking number. On receiving your request for cancellation and refund, we will contact the suppliers such as airlines, hotels and rental car companies to generate a waiver, only if it is eligible for a refund. The decision of the supplier will be final and we will notify you about it.
Our service fees related to the original reservation or booking are non-refundable. Kindly be informed that we are completely dependent on the suppliers' decision when it comes to receiving the requested refunds. Please note that refunds are only possible if airline/supplier rules permit such refunds. Once the requested refund has been approved by the supplier, it may take about 60-90 days; from receiving your request to receiving credit on your statement. Apart from the airlines’ and other suppliers’ refund-fees, Secret Fares LLC will charge a post-ticketing service fee, as and when applicable. All the refund fees charged are on per passenger, per ticket basis. The refund fees is only applicable if a refund has been authorized by the supplier or a waiver has been received. If the requested refund is not processed by the supplier, then in that case we will refund you the post-ticketing service fees charged by us. However, this does not apply to our booking fees for the original travel reservation or booking.
Some airlines may require you to pay additional fees at the airport for certain services and/or if you exceed certain limits (for example: baggage weight limits) as dictated by the airline. In addition, some airlines do not offer any free baggage allowance. During the booking process, each airline under consideration should be consulted directly for complete information about its baggage and any other applicable fees.
Some countries or airports charge fees upon entering and/or exiting the country. These fees are not included in the ticket price or the taxes and fees we display on the Website. You acknowledge that you are responsible for all such fees. For more information on countries' entry and/or exit fees, we suggest visiting www.travel.state.gov prior to your departure.
