Conditions. Name changes on tickets are not allowed – only the original passenger can use the ticket(s). Take special note that airline tickets and all service fees may not be refundable. Changes, cancellation and refunds are permitted up to 72 hours from time of departure. However, there will be a minimum of $250 per person processing fee plus any applicable fees charged by the carrier/provider upon cancellation/exchange. Fees will vary depending on the providers terms and conditions. You will not receive a monetary refund when canceling. Instead, you will receive a credit (less any airline/hotel fees) towards a future ticket purchase on long haul international flights of equal or greater value, which will be valid for up to twelve (12) months from your original date of purchase.
No-Show tickets cannot be refunded, nor can they be exchanged. Unless the reservation is cancelled and the trip rescheduled prior to the original departure date, the ticket is suspended and refunds are not possible.
Please check your E-Mail frequently for any schedule change notifications from the airline and verify the current flight information 72 hours prior to scheduled departure. Failure to use any reservation will result in an automatic cancellation of all continuing and return flight reservations and suspension of the tickets. The ticket can be used only in the sequence it was issued. Out of sequence usage is not allowed. The recommended check-in time for all international flights is minimum 3 hours, even if you are traveling on a domestic flight to another airport to connect to your international flight.
Airline tickets are subject to the published conditions of carriage and rules, including but not limited to, cancellation policies of the applicable airline. The contract of carriage in use by the applicable airline, when issued, shall be between the applicable airline and the passenger. Airlines retain the right to adjust flight times and schedules at any time - schedule changes can result in an itinerary that falls outside of contractual agreements. Airlines may also in their discretion change or cancel flights or itineraries. Business Class is not responsible for schedule changes.
If your ticket is not honored for any reason, please contact your agent immediately. Your ticket is guaranteed up to the amount paid for the ticket, and Business Class will replace your ticket within 24 hours or offer a full refund, or provide other alternative options within 24 hours.
Baggage Allowance. Travelers may have to pay additional fees at the airport if their checked items exceed the weight, size or number spelled out in the standard baggage allowance of the airline. Some airlines do not offer any free baggage allowance. Baggage allowance policies and baggage fees associated with checked or carry-on baggage vary widely and are subject to change by the airlines at any time.
Frequent Traveler Points. Frequent traveler awards (miles, points etc.), upgrades, certificate vouchers and other discounts or incentives may not apply to Business Class flights, or other travel services. Additionally, mileage accrual may not apply to all tickets. Please discuss this with your agent for more information.
Supplier Rules and Restrictions. Additional terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you select from both airline and hotel suppliers. Please read these additional terms and conditions carefully on the airline or hotel or other accommodation providers websites. You agree to abide by the terms and conditions of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the suppliers rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if full payment is not received in a timely fashion. Some airline or hotel suppliers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses incurred during your travel. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by Business Class for your booking. You acknowledge that some third-party providers offering certain services and/or activities may require you to sign their liability waiver prior to participating in the service and/or activity they offer. You understand that any violation of any such suppliers rules and restrictions may result in cancellation of your reservation(s), in your being denied access to the applicable travel product or services, in your forfeiting any monies paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation.
Travel Destinations and Visa Requirements. International travel requires that passengers have in possession a valid Passport, which must be presented for all international flights. Please note that some countries may require a visa and/or a health card. It is passengers responsibility to have all required travel documents in possession at check-in. It is strongly recommended that passengers review visa requirements for all stops as some countries may require a transit visa. Passengers transiting via or connecting between airports located in the European Union - Schengen Zone may need a Schengen Entry visa. Please contact the embassy of the country you are going to visit or transit through to get the up-to-date requirements. Some countries have special requirements for one way travel – it is travelers’ responsibility to make sure they meet eligibility criteria for one way travel. Visa information is also available at the Travel Advisory Section of the U.S. State Department (phone line: 202-647-5225, official web site: www.state.gov). Holders of non-U.S. passports are advised to contact the embassies of their destination and transit countries to obtain entrance requirements.
Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. Business Class urges passengers to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government prior to booking travel to international destinations. Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at www.state.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov, www.cdc.gov and www.treas.gov/ofac.
By offering for sale travel to particular international destinations, www.Business-Class.com does not represent or warrant that travel to such points is advisable or without risk, and is not liable for damages or losses that may result from travel to such destinations.
Exchanges, Cancellations, and Refunds. The confirmed tickets are non-reroutable and non-transferable. If fare rules allow refunds and/or exchanges, a Business Class fee will be charged to process any refund and/or exchange request. This fee will be collected in addition to the penalties charged directly by the airline and/or recalled by the airline from Business Class. Reservations for tickets to be refunded and/or exchanged must be canceled at least 72 hours prior to scheduled departure - NO SHOW ticket(s) will not be processed for refund and/or exchange. Cancellation of reservation does not automatically initiate refund. All exchanges can be made only prior to scheduled departure. After the tickets are issued, any changes or refunds are subject to the restrictions of the fares used. Generally speaking, discounted fares are more restrictive and in many cases they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Please pay attention to the fare restrictions of your tickets. If you need more flexibility with your tickets in terms of refunds and exchanges, please consult your agent and request a less restrictive fare. Airlines offer a wide range of fares, including those that offer exchanges and refunds without any restrictions and penalties. The airlines strictly follow their policies, and do not permit exchanges or refunds in case the fare restrictions do not allow it. The airlines determine the restrictions of the fares, and Business Class has no power to override these restrictions. Once the tickets are issued, they are subject to fare restrictions.
Ticket Delivery. All the tickets sold by Business Class are electronic tickets (e-Tickets) and will be sent to the E-Mail address provided by you during the booking. Once your electronic tickets are issued, you will receive an E-Mail confirmation which will include the ticket number, and the reservation numbers for each airline you’ll be traveling on.
Payment Information. Business Class uses stringent safety measures for credit card payment processing. We accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, Discover. Credit card transactions are authorized at the time you or anyone acting on your behalf accepts these Terms & Conditions and continues with the purchase. Business Class uses stringent safety measures for credit card payment processing. All credit cards must have a verifiable US, Canadian, UK, or billing address. 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. Fraudulent transactions, if any, are reported to airport security, airlines and other federal and state law enforcement. All credit card transactions over the phone to our Client Service Department are recorded and are available as evidence in case of any dispute. If your credit card is declined for any reason, we will notify you within 24 hours. Simply submitting the credit card does not automatically guarantee ticketing. All bookings and fares are not guaranteed until ticketed by the supplier.
Some banks and credit cards impose fees 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 if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. Booking international travel may be considered to be an international transaction by the bank or card company, since Business Class may pass on your payment to an international travel supplier. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your bank on the day that they process the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your bank.
