Welcome to the CheapOair ("CheapOair", "we", "our", "us") website (collectively, the "Site"). This Site is provided by us solely to assist customers in gathering travel information, determining the availability of travel-related goods and services, making legitimate reservations or otherwise transacting business with travel suppliers, and for no other purposes. Use of the Site is governed by the following Terms & Conditions.

Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to the Terms & Conditions will mean you accept those changes. Please return to this page periodically to review any changes.
Any and all statements made in these Terms & Conditions related to CheapOair are also made on behalf of our affiliates, subsidiaries and parent companies, including all disclaimers.
BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THE MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER CONTAINED BELOW.
SAFE SHOPPING GUARANTEE
CheapOair values your trust. We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect your personal information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please immediately notify customer service at 1-800-525-0400 or feedback@CheapOair.com so that we have an opportunity to try to address your concerns.
CheapOair does not act as principal but makes arrangements with third-party vendors, such as, but not limited to airlines, hotels, cruise lines, railroads, car rental agencies, tour operators and consolidators, traveler assist service providers, insurance providers and activities suppliers (each a "Travel Supplier") for travel-related services which include, without limitation, air transportation, lodging, and car rental (each a "Service Element").
COMPASSION EXCEPTION POLICY (CEP)
By using this Site, you acknowledge that the rates offered by CheapOair and affiliate companies are a result of negotiation between CheapOair
and the Travel Suppliers and include certain fees retained by them for their services, taxes and other charges. When booking with any Travel Supplier thru this Site, you authorize CheapOair and affiliate companies to book reservations or enter a contract on your behalf with Travel Suppliers for the total price displayed, including such fees and any applicable taxes or charges related to the Travel Supplier's or CheapOair's services.
CheapOair shall not be liable for errors or inaccuracies on the Site, or the failure of Travel Suppliers from whom you obtain services through this Site, including but not limited to airlines, hotels, cruise lines, railroads, car rental agencies, tour operators and consolidators, vacation packages, activities suppliers, traveler assist service providers and insurance providers.
CheapOair, in providing travel management services, does not endorse, guarantee or insure the products or services which are provided by an external supplier, the financial position of such suppliers or the reimbursement to you from any loss as a result of the financial condition of such supplier. In the event that a supplier defaults prior to providing the service to you where a payment has been made, your sole recourse for a refund shall be the defaulting supplier, from insurance covering such defaults if any, or from other responsible third party unless such loss was caused solely by CheapOair. In those situations in which a supplier defaults prior to providing services you may pursue any recourse against the supplier for a refund, as permitted by law or statute.
Except as expressly stated herein, CheapOair assumes no responsibility for actions relating to travel services beyond the control of CheapOair or its employees.
CheapOair is not responsible or liable for any act, error, omission, injury, loss, accident, damage, delay, nonperformance, irregularity, or any consequence thereof, which may be occasioned through neglect, or default or any other act or inaction of any Travel Supplier. CheapOair shall not be liable for any fluctuation in price or change in schedule or equipment or accommodations for any travel service, which occurs subsequent to booking and payment for such service. CheapOair shall not be liable for any cancellation, overbooking, delay, re-routing, strike, any weather occurrence or governmental occurrence as it affects your travel reservation made with us.
CheapOair shall not be liable for the depiction of travel products and services made available by any supplier of travel products and services, including but not limited to photographs, listed amenities, ratings, and discounts.
CheapOair acts as a service that provides value added service to retail travel agents and consumers. CheapOair has no control over and assumes no liability for the actions of the suppliers from whom it obtains travel products or services.
shall not be liable for final currency conversion or rates when paid after a travel reservation is made with us for international travel products and services. You agree and acknowledge that currency rates vary and any quoted price on the Site in local currency is a guideline, and not binding on us or the Travel Supplier.
Once certain travel reservations are made and paid for they may be completely non-refundable or there may be a penalty involved in cancellation or seeking a refund from the supplier of travel products and services. Once tickets have been issued there may be a penalty involved for cancellations and refunds. We do not have control over printed prices on the tickets, although some tickets may have BT (bulk fare) printed on them, some may have a specific value on them, which may be different (lower or higher) than the fare collected.
Discounts offered may vary depending on a number of factors including airlines utilized, class of service, destination, time of year (low, mid or high season), advance notice provided, minimum stay requirements fulfilled and flight load.
CheapOair does not guarantee, endorse, validate or promote other advertiser's products and services that are advertised on our Site.
By booking with us a contract may be formed between you and a Travel Supplier, and additional Terms & Conditions may apply to your booking and purchase of travel-related goods and services. Please read the additional Terms & Conditions provided by such Travel Supplier carefully. You hereby agree to be bound by all the Terms & Conditions of purchase imposed by any Travel Supplier with whom you choose to contract, including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the Travel Supplier's rules and restrictions regarding availability and use of fares, products, or services. Some Travel Suppliers may require you to present a credit card or cash deposit upon check-in to cover additional expenses incurred during your stay or during the use of the reserved products or services. Such deposit is unrelated to any payment received by CheapOair for your hotel, car or airline ticket booking. You understand that any violation of a Travel Supplier's rules and restrictions may result in the cancellation of your reservation(s), in denial of access to the respective Service Element or services, in your forfeiting any amount paid for such reservation(s), and/or in our debiting your account for any costs we incur as a result of such violation.

PRICE MATCH PROMISE
When booking with CheapOair, we want you to be confident that you have found a great deal.
**Active Duty – Acceptable forms of ID are .mil Email Address, Active Duty ID Card, Guard/Reserves ID Card, Common Access Card (CAC); Veterans – Acceptable forms of ID are Military Retiree ID Card, Veterans ID card, Veteran Health ID Card, Uniformed Services ID Card, State Driver’s License stamped “VETERAN”.
Please note: The above CEP only applies to CheapOair's own cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees. Customers may still be responsible for airline and/or other supplier imposed penalties, as well as any fare difference. CheapOair does not control the policies of these airlines and/or other suppliers.
That’s why, if you see a lower price (including taxes and fees) for the same flight itinerary offered and available for booking on a Major OTA Competitor’s site within twenty-four (24) hours of booking, we will match that lower price by refunding the difference in price, or if you prefer, we will cancel your booking with us for a full refund.
That’s our Price Match Promise (“PMP”).
Questions? Here are some answers:
What does “the same itinerary” mean?
The same itinerary means that each and every element of each offer matches; airline(s), flight number(s), itinerary, date(s), number of customers and seat type.
What does “offered and available for booking” mean?
It means that the itinerary you found is actually live on a Major OTA Competitor’s site and available to be booked by the general public at the time you contact us, as determined by our customer service representatives.
What is a “Major OTA Competitor”?
For purposes of the PMP, it means the U.S. English-language websites of Expedia.com, Orbitz.com, Priceline.com and Travelocity.com.
How do I notify you that I want to invoke the PMP?
To invoke the PMP, all you need to do is contact us at email@example.com with your CheapOair booking number and all of the key details of the lower priced itinerary (airline(s), flight(s), itinerary, date(s), number of customers and seat type), along with documentation such as the exact URL or screen shots that will enable our customer service representatives to verify that such itinerary satisfies the terms and conditions of the PMP. Customer service must be able to locate the lower fare from the information you provide; we reserve the right to deny any claims that cannot be reasonably verified, or for which you have provided incomplete information. Once our representative has verified that the PMP applies, you will be given the choice to either keep your itinerary with a refund of the difference in total price, or cancel your booking with us for a full refund.
Are there exceptions that apply to the PMP?
The PMP does not apply to fares offered on membership program websites, corporate discounts or rates; group, charter, rewards program, incentive, meeting, convention, or consolidator fares; or fares available only by using a coupon or other promotion not offered to the general public. Military, student, government, tour operator, bulk, vacation package or "Web Only" fares are excluded. The PMP does not apply to “opaque” tickets (where the airline booking details are unknown until after purchase) or tickets issued under a “bidding” or “auction” model. Fare errors are also excluded.
PRICE DROP ASSURANCE TERMS & CONDITIONS
Price Drop Assurance is an opt-in service in which you authorize us to look for additional savings on airline ticket(s) that you booked with us, which we then share with you in the form of a CheapOair gift card.
Cheapoair Connection Protection
When you purchase the Price Drop Assurance service, we will search your exact itinerary (travel dates, airports, passengers, airlines & flights) for 24 hours after you book your ticket(s) to look for opportunities to realize additional savings on those ticket(s). If we identify an opportunity to realize additional savings, you authorize us to rebook your ticket(s) for the same exact itinerary that you already purchased. We will then share those savings with you in the form of a gift card good toward any future flight booking on CheapOair.com. We will also retain a portion of the savings as a rebooking fee for providing this service.
The Price Drop Assurance service is not a guarantee of savings. If we are unable to find meaningful additional savings on your exact itinerary (typically $30 or more), your original tickets will remain in place and we will be unable to offer you any additional value. Price Drop Assurance is not available for all itineraries or all airlines, but will only be offered when available.
Please be aware that If we reissue your tickets to realize additional savings as described above, you will receive a new confirmation email with new ticket number(s) for the new tickets that we have issued to you. We strongly recommend that if you sign up for the Price Drop Assurance service, you do not purchase any ancillary services, such as seats or prepaid bags, directly from the airline until after the 24-hour search period has ended. IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED ANY ANCILLARY SERVICES, SUCH AS SEATS OR PREPAID BAGS, DIRECTLY FROM THE AIRLINE IN THE INTERIM, YOU WILL NEED TO CALL THE AIRLINE AND REQUEST THAT THEY ASSOCIATE THOSE ITEMS WITH YOUR NEW TICKET NUMBER(S), RATHER THAN YOUR ORIGINAL ONE(S). Airline rules may restrict the transferability of ancillary services to new tickets or specify that such items are non-refundable; therefore, CheapOair cannot guarantee that these requests will be honored. Note that if you use a debit card for this service, depending upon your issuing bank it may take up to five to seven business days for you to regain access to the funds held for purchase of your original ticket.
NOTE THAT THE ORIGINAL FARE MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR A FULL REFUND IF REQUESTED WITHIN 24-HOURS OF BOOKING. OTHER FARES MAY BE REFUNDABLE PURSUANT TO THE ORIGINAL FARE RULES. BY SIGNING UP FOR PRICE DROP ASSURANCE, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT ONCE WE HAVE COMMENCED THE REBOOKING PROCESS, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A REFUND (IF ELIGIBLE) ON THE ORIGINAL TICKET AND ELECT TO APPLY ANY REFUND TO THE PURCHASE OF THE REBOOKED TICKET AND CHEAPOAIR’S REBOOKING FEE. THE REBOOKED TICKET(S) WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A REFUND TO THE SAME EXTENT AS THE ORIGINAL TICKET(S), AND WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE AIRLINE’S RULES AND RESTRICTIONS, AS WELL AS CHEAPOAIR’S TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
CheapOair Connection Protection is a feature available on certain Fusion Fare flights and is designed to assist you should you be impacted by an involuntary schedule change, delay or cancellation of your confirmed flight resulting from some events that occur in the standard course of air transportation.
When you purchase an itinerary that is covered by CheapOair Connection Protection, in the event of an involuntary schedule change or cancellation, we will make reasonable attempts to find you an alternative flight option(s) or other acceptable means of transportation to your destination (or refund the cost of your unused ticket should no options be available). If you are affected by an involuntary change to your itinerary you should immediately reach out to CheapOair and not the airline in order to be covered under this policy.
This option applies whenever a schedule change such as a flight change or cancellation affects the first leg of your confirmed itinerary, which prevents you from reaching your final destination, or your arrival in destination is delayed by more than 24 hours after the original arrival time (i.e., you would either miss your connecting flight(s) or your flight(s) is cancelled).
IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A SCHEDULE CHANGE ON YOUR FUSION FARE ITINERARY, YOU MUST GET IN TOUCH WITH US IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT DELAY EITHER BY TELEPHONE, EMAIL OR VIA OUR ONLINE CHAT PLATFORM FOUND ON OUR WEBSITE. At this time, we have no way of tracking whether there has been a change to your itinerary, so if you fail to contact us in a timely manner, you will not be covered under CheapOAir Connection Protection. Once we are informed of the change or cancellation, at our discretion, we will offer you one of the following resolutions:
The options will be communicated to you via phone or email. You must respond to us promptly in ALL cases within the 24 hours of receiving our options. Once the 24-hour offer period is over, our options becomes null and void and you will not be entitled to CheapOair Connection Protection.
- We will find you alternative transportation to your destination. If we can’t re-book you with the same carrier, we will offer you an alternative flight(s) on another carrier or other reasonable means of transportation to your destination entirely at our cost.
- If no alternative can be offered and once we are in mutual agreement, you can purchase the similar ticket at the airport in the same cabin class and we will refund you the price difference between the two tickets. Any other extra services or upgrades related to these new tickets will not be covered under this policy.
- For all unused portions, we will refund you accordingly. This option will be offered if we fail to offer you an alternative transportation.
CheapOair Additional services covered:
Any covered travel arrangements must be prearranged with our Customer care team, as these are solely covered at our discretion. The costs associated with these services must be paid upfront by you and then claimed after the fact with valid proof (transaction receipts). We will refund the costs up to the amounts listed below.
Overnight Hotel Accommodations:
If your alternative connecting flight is scheduled for eight or more hours after your original departure, CheapOair Connection Protection will provide overnight hotel accommodations. In some cases, you will have to book the hotel room locally and claim a refund of USD $50 per person up to two nights. If additional nights are required due to lack of availability with the airline for an alternative, it must be mutually arranged in advance with CheapOair.
If all alternative flights to your destination are sold out for same-day travel, we will cover the costs of a transfer to a nearby airport if the next available flight to your destination departs from that airport. All airport transfers must be prearranged with CheapOair. Airport transfers may be via train, coach bus or a taxi and will apply to all the passengers booked on the same reservation. The maximum aggregate claim limit for this is USD $100 for all passengers on the same reservation.
Meal and Beverage compensation:
If your flight connection is delayed by more than 4 hours, we will cover up to US $15 per person booked on a covered itinerary.
Multiple destination routes:
If the covered itinerary is impacted such that the remaining segments on the same ticket are all impacted, and we are unable to find a suitable alternative and the ticket is fully unused, then a refund for all flights on that ticket can be applied.
Communication and notices:
Once we provide you with alternative options, your response is required within 48 hours the latest in exceptional cases. If the 48-hour window has passed, the offer becomes null and void and is no longer covered under CheapOair Connection Protection.
Important: If you are offered the above-mentioned alternatives by the airline(s) directly or at the airport, we cannot be held responsible for any further compensation or reimbursement.
Late Check-ins / No Shows
CheapOAir Connection Protection is intended to assist when, due to no fault of your own, you miss your connecting flight on an eligible itinerary. However, if CheapOair determines (based on the information provided by the operating carriers/booking systems) that the passenger has had sufficient connecting time (even after a delayed arrival), CheapOair Connection Protection will not apply. Any related costs will become the passenger’s responsibility in any such cases.

Any material you upload to the Site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary and we have the right to use, copy, store, distribute and disclose to third parties any such material for any purpose. We also have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any material posted or uploaded by you to the Site constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy.

GOVERNING LAW; CLAIMS
Otherwise, you and we agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between you and us, including our agents or any representatives acting on our behalf, arising out of or relating to your use of the Site, these Terms & Conditions, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or our relationship in connection with the Site or these or previous versions of these Terms & Conditions (each, a "Claim"), shall be resolved in accordance with one of the subsections of this Resolution of Disputes section below or as otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing.
These Terms & Conditions and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, USA, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules.

IMPROPERLY FILED CLAIMS
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, except as set forth below, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the Terms & Conditions as a court would.
The arbitration will be governed by the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures (the "JAMS Rules") and the JAMS Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards, as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by JAMS. The JAMS Rules and Consumer Arbitration Minimum Standards are available online at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 1-800-352-5267. If you initiate arbitration and the total amount in controversy is US$100,000 or less, the only fee you shall be required to pay is US$250 (which is less than the current standard JAMS filing fee); all other costs will be borne by the Company. In the event that the arbitrator determines that the claims were frivolous, the arbitrator may award to the prevailing party the costs and attorneys' fees reasonably incurred in connection with the arbitration, except that, in arbitrations proceeding in California, the arbitrator is not empowered to award the prevailing party the fees and costs it incurred in connection with the arbitration.
Notwithstanding the provision above with respect to applicable substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to these Terms & Conditions shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16, the “FAA”) and any dispute about the interpretation of this arbitration clause shall be covered by the FAA. JAMS and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator approved by or otherwise affiliated with JAMS; except that if the total amount in controversy is more than US$100,000, either party may request a panel of three arbitrators; (b) the party initiating the arbitration shall choose the form in which they would like the arbitration to be conducted: via telephone, online, solely based on written submissions, or at an in-person hearing; (c) notwithstanding the foregoing, if either party requests an in-person hearing: (i) the arbitrator shall decide whether a hearing is necessary or whether the arbitration should proceed via telephone, online or solely based on written submissions, (ii) if the arbitrator deems that a hearing is necessary, the hearing shall occur at a mutually agreed upon location, or, if the parties are unable to agree on a location, at a location that is selected by the arbitrator and is reasonably convenient to all parties, and (iii) either party may elect to participate in an in-person hearing by phone, unless the arbitrator decides otherwise; (d) the arbitrator may not award any: (i) incidental, indirect or consequential damages, including damages for lost profits, or (ii) punitive or exemplary damages, except where permitted by statute, and the parties waive any right to recover any such damages described in subparagraphs (d)(i) and (d)(ii); (e) the arbitrator may award injunctive or declaratory relief only in favor of the party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's claim; and (f) unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
The arbitrator shall decide all issues relating to jurisdiction and arbitrability and the interpretation, applicability, formation, existence, validity, scope or enforceability of this Mandatory Arbitration provision. Any and all Claims, if any, determined by the arbitrator not to be within the scope of this Mandatory Arbitration provision must be brought exclusively in a Federal or State court located in New York County, the State of New York, USA. If subparagraph (f) above is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Mandatory Arbitration provision shall be null and void. Judgment on the award issued by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This Mandatory Arbitration provision shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
All claims filed or brought that are not in accordance with to this section shall be considered improperly filed. Should a claim be filed by either you or us in manner that is not in accordance with this section, the other party may seek to recover attorneys' fees and costs up to US$5,000, provided that the other party has been notified in writing of the improperly filed claim, received fourteen days to withdraw such claim, and fails to do so.

We reserve the right to cancel your CheapOair account and terminate your use of the Site if you violate any of the above prohibitions.
For your convenience, our use of the following terms in these Terms & Conditions shall have the meaning below:
"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).
"Travel Supplier" - a vendor of one or more Service Elements. (e.g.: hotels, car suppliers, airlines). CheapOair does not act as principal but makes arrangements with third-party vendor Travel Suppliers for Service Elements, all as defined above.
"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:
When we place Service Elements on our Site, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase. You do not make this offer until you press "Book" on the payment page (entitled "Review Trip Details and Book") of the Site.
Once you have done so you have made CheapOair 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 CheapOair 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 contract between you and the relevant Travel Supplier will relate only to those Service Elements confirmed by email with ticket numbers in case of air or reservation numbers in case of hotels, cars or activities.
The terms of your Booking (such as price, availability and/or dates of travel) are not guaranteed until the 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. Please note that once you have completed the Booking stage you can only cancel or change the details (such as names or destinations) of your Booking at our sole discretion and in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
These Booking processes will apply to any of our individual Service Element's Terms & Conditions set out below. The airline ticket Terms & Conditions, the hotel Terms & Conditions, the car rental Terms & Conditions, the attractions and services Terms & Conditions supplement any area not covered by the Booking process. We reserve the right to change the Booking process at any time, with changes automatically taking effect from the date such changes are posted on the Site.
At all times throughout your trip a government-issued photo ID is required for security checks at airports, hotels and car rental locations and may be required for attractions and other products as deemed necessary by the relevant Travel Suppliers.
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). Many countries require that your passport should be valid for a minimum period from the date of arrival into that country. For any questions regarding what the applicable minimum period is and any other conditions or passport/visa requirements for travel, you should contact the corresponding local consulate of the countries to which you are travelling.
Neither CheapOair nor its affiliates accept any responsibility, and you will not be entitled to any refunds whatsoever, if you are denied boarding, delayed or deported due to non-fulfillment of the above.
- Government entry/exit fees may apply, depending on your destination.
- These are your sole responsibility and will be additional to your Booking charges.
- All travelers on your Booking (if more than one passenger) must travel on the same itinerary. Individual passengers cannot be added to, and/or deleted from your Booking.
CheapOair reserves the right to correct errors in any advertised price and, if applicable, give you an option to either cancel the Booking or allow CheapOair to collect an amount equal to any increase in price from your provided credit or debit card, prior to your departure.
- Each Service Element listed in your Booking is provided by the respective Travel Supplier.
- Frequent traveler points and/or miles may or may not be available for any portion of your Booking. You must check this with the relevant Travel Supplier.
Once you have made your Booking, you cannot transfer or change the name(s) or destination(s) listed in your Booking.
Pricing, Taxes/Fees, and Payment:
Your Booking will be fulfilled on the delivery date set out in your ticket information email or, if no delivery date is specified, then on the date the ticket is issued, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
The terms of this agreement incorporate by reference the terms of each airline's contract of carriage. Passengers may inspect the full text of the contract of carriage at the each airline's airport or city ticket offices. Passengers have the right, upon request to the airlines, to receive free of charge by mail or other delivery service the full text of the contract of carriage. The incorporated terms of the contract of carriage may include: (1) Limits on the airline's liability for personal injury or death of passengers, and for loss, damage, or delay of goods and baggage, including fragile or perishable goods; (2) Claim restrictions, including time periods within which passengers must file a claim or bring an action against the airline for its acts or omissions or those of its agents; (3) Rights of the airline to change terms of the contract; (4) Rules about reconfirmation of reservations, check-in times, and refusal to carry; (5) Rights of the airline and limitations concerning delay or failure to perform service, including schedule changes, substitution of alternate airline or aircraft, and rerouting.
Our total prices include all taxes and fees applicable to airfare, hotel accommodation, car rentals and activities included in your Booking, unless stated otherwise in your ticket information email or in these Terms & Conditions. Additional fuel surcharges, security, baggage, seat reservation, hotel incidentals, and other applicable service charges may apply which will be charged by the relevant Travel Supplier at time of check-in. You are solely responsible for any such additional charges due to the Travel Supplier. If you have any questions about such charges, please contact the relevant Travel Supplier directly.
Prices quoted for Service Element(s) do not include liability insurance, collision damage waiver, personal accident insurance, personal effects protection, drop-off charges, gas, child safety seats, sky racks or incidental room charges at the hotel (telephone, movies, energy surcharges and any applicable increases in taxes). All such charges must be paid at the car rental pick-up location and/or at the check-in counter at the hotel.
Prices quoted also do not include any additional flight fuel surcharges or other surcharges which may be imposed from time to time by the relevant Travel Supplier or authorities, all of which must be paid by you.
Payment must be made in full with a valid credit or debit card at the time of Booking. CheapOair accepts all major credit or debit cards with a verifiable billing address.
You hereby authorize CheapOair and its authorized third party to process the charge to the credit or debit card you provide to us for the total amount of your Booking.
You may be required by the relevant Travel Supplier(s) to present a valid credit or debit card at the time of check-in at the hotel and/or at the pick-up location of the car rental company to provide confirmation of authorized card usage and/or to secure any additional charges. The cardholder must be a traveler listed on yourBooking.

If your itinerary involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure, the provisions of a treaty known as the "Warsaw Convention" may be applicable to your entire trip, including any portion entirely within the country of origin or destination. The Warsaw Convention governs and may limit the liability of certain air carriers for death of or personal injury to passengers and/or loss of or damage to baggage.
ADVICE TO INTERNATIONAL PASSENGERS
A reservation is not complete until confirmed/ticketed. To protect our customers, we verify with the credit/debit card company that the billing address and credit card verification number you provided to us is accurate and that your debit/charge will be accepted. Until such information is verified, the fare is subject to change. We are not responsible for any transaction that is declined based upon a credit/debit card that is declined by the issuing company or a travel provider or if, for any reason, the debit/credit card billing address and/or credit card verification number cannot be verified in a timely manner, nor are we responsible for any changes in fare or any other charges that may occur during our verification process. In the event the fare selected is not available an approval code may have been issued on your credit card. If the transaction is not completed the approval code may temporarily credit the amount from your bank account.
Passengers embarking upon a journey involving an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of departure are advised that the provisions of treaties known as the Montreal Convention and the Warsaw Convention may be applicable to their entire journey including the portion entirely within the countries of departure and destination. The Conventions govern and in most cases limits the liability of carriers to passengers for death or personal injury. Additional protection can usually be obtained by purchasing insurance from a private company. Such insurance is not affected by any limitation of the carrier's liability under the Montreal Convention or Warsaw Convention. For further information please consult your airline or insurance company representative. For more details about the carrier's liability under the Warsaw convention, please click here.

2 Most of our airline tickets are non-refundable. Airline Refunds/Future credits are subject to airline fare rules, policies and procedures.
3 Special Services - 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.

Any and all changes made to the itinerary are restricted and are subject to airline fare rules, whichever is more restrictive; most of our tickets,hotels,cars,packages and cruises do not allow any date or name changes after the booking is completed. CheapOair does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, any bookings or reservations made or confirmed to you in the event that the original itinerary has been changed by the supplier pursuant to customer's request or supplier's schedule changes.
CANCEL AND EXCHANGE
Most of our airline tickets are 100% non-refundable. In certain cases where the airline may allow cancellations, a credit may be valid towards a future ticket purchase 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 CheapOair post-ticketing fees. All such changes are governed by each airline's fare rules, policies and procedures, which are not under our control.
MULTIPLE AIRLINE ITINERARIES
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.
As per our Compassion Exception Policy (CEP), we offer Special Discounts for Military, Natural Disasters, Bereavement, and the Visually Impaired.
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 Customer to make changes to the other flight, the Customer 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.
CANCEL AND REFUND
Most of our airline tickets, hotels, pre-paid car rentals, vacation packages and service fees are non-refundable after 24 hours of booking. Trip protection insurance is refundable within 10 days of purchase if travel has not commenced and you have called our customer service center to cancel. All cancellations must be done over the phone only. We can accept refund requests only if the following conditions have been met:
- you have applied for a cancellation and refund with us and if the fare rules provide for cancellation and refunds;
- you are not a "no show" (most "no show" bookings are in-eligible for any waiver from suppliers for refund processing); and
- we are able to secure waivers from suppliers to process this requested cancellation and refund.
We are unable to provide a specific time line for how long it may take for this requested refund to be processed. All refund requests are processed in a sequential format. Once you have provided our customer service agent with your cancellation request, we will then send you an email notification that your request has been received. This notification does not automatically qualify you for a refund. This only provides you with an acknowledgement of your request and provides you with a tracking number. Upon receipt of your request we will work with the suppliers such as airlines, hotels, car-rental companies to generate a waiver based on airline and other supplier rules and notify you of the supplier decision. Our services fees associated with the original travel reservation or booking are not refundable. Please note that we are dependent on the suppliers for receiving the requested refunds. Once the refund has been approved by the supplier it may take additional time for this to appear on your credit card statement. Generally, all suppliers will charge a penalty for refund. This entire process may take 60-90 days from receipt of your request to receiving credit on your statement. Apart from the airlines and other suppliers refund penalties, CheapOair will charge a post-ticketing services fee, as applicable. All refund fees are charged on per-passenger, per-ticket basis. These fees will only be assessed if a refund has been authorized by the supplier or a waiver has been received and when the airline/supplier rules permit such refunds. If such refund is not processed by the supplier, we will refund you our post-ticketing service fees applicable to your agent assisted refund request , but not our booking fees for the original travel reservation or booking.
As per our Compassion Exception Policy (CEP), we offer Special Discounts for Military, Natural Disasters, Bereavement, and the Visually Impaired.
Cancellation Password - For your security, bookings may only be cancelled over the phone, and not by email or web chat. When requesting Cheapoair to cancel a booking on your behalf, our agents will send you an email with a unique Cancellation Password to the e-mail you entered when the booking was created. Please provide the Cancellation Password to our agents when asked, in order to complete your cancellation request. If you cannot access your email and provide your Cancellation Password, we may not be able to process your request for cancellation. The Cancellation Password will expire within 3 hours of issuance.

In addition, you acknowledge you have previously enrolled in the CheapOair Rewards Program (the “Rewards Program”), or if you have not, you agree to be enrolled in the Rewards Program, and to be bound by the Rewards Program Terms and Conditions (“Rewards Program Terms”), which are available at CheapOairCardRewards.com.
Make Purchases with your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card and Earn Reward Points
When you make an eligible net purchase (eligible purchases minus credits, returns and adjustments) (“Eligible Purchase”) with your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card, you will automatically earn points in your Rewards Program account if your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card account is open and in good standing both at the time you make an Eligible Purchase and at the end of your billing cycle during which you made an Eligible Purchase. Points earned for an Eligible Purchase will be calculated at the end of the billing cycle in which the Eligible Purchase was posted to your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card account and will appear in your Rewards Program account within 60 days. Eligible Purchases do not include special financing purchases, balance transfers, cash advances, finance charges and fees associated with your credit card.
Earn Points with Your CheapOair Credit Card
When you use your CheapOair Credit Card for Eligible Purchases made at the CheapOair website or through the CheapOair telephone customer service center, you will earn 6 points for every US dollar spent, rounded to the nearest dollar. “Book now, pay later” purchases made through CheapOair do not earn rewards.
Earn Points with Your CheapOair Visa Card
Redeem Your Points
- Base Reward When you use your CheapOair Visa Card for Eligible Purchases made everywhere Visa credit cards are accepted, you will earn 2 points for every US dollar spent, rounded to the nearest dollar.
- Dining When you use your CheapOair Visa Card for Eligible Purchases made at dining establishments, you will earn 2 additional points, for a total of 4 points for every US dollar spent, rounded to the nearest dollar. Eligible Purchases made at dining establishments will be determined by the merchant category code (the "MCC") associated with the merchant. A MCC is a four-digit classification code that is assigned to a merchant by the merchant’s payment card network or merchant processor based on the predominant business activity of the merchant. The merchant’s MCC will determine whether an Eligible Purchase qualifies as being made at a dining establishment for the 4 point reward. For example, a dining purchase at the café area of a grocery store may have a MCC identification as a type of merchant other than a dining establishment and therefore would not qualify as a dining purchase under these Credit Reward Terms. Neither CheapOair nor Synchrony Bank assigns or has responsibility for the assignment of MCCs or evaluates what MCC should be assigned to a particular merchant.
- CheapOair Purchases When you use your CheapOair Visa Card for Eligible Purchases made at the CheapOair website or through the CheapOair telephone customer service center, you will earn 4 additional points, for a total of 6 points for every US dollar spent, rounded to the nearest dollar. “Book now, pay later” purchases made through CheapOair with your CheapOair Visa Card only earn the Base Reward which is 2 points for every US dollar spent, rounded to the nearest dollar.
All points earned with your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card and credited to your Reward Program account can only be redeemed in accordance with the Rewards Program Terms through your Rewards Program account by visiting CheapOair.com/rewards. Your CheapOair Credit Card account or CheapOair Visa Card account must be open and in good standing when your reward points are calculated at the end of the billing cycle during which you made an Eligible Purchase. If your account is not in good standing at that time, any points earned will be not be posted to your Rewards Program account until your CheapOair Credit Card account or CheapOair Visa Card account is brought back into good standing status. If your CheapOair Credit Card account or CheapOair Visa Card account is closed for any reason before your reward points are calculated or credited to your Rewards Program account, you will forfeit all points you may have earned that had not yet been credited to your Rewards Program account. Points are only earned on the Credit Card account or Visa Card account used to make the purchase and are not based on the website on which the purchase is made. For example, if you use a CheapOair Credit Card account to make an Eligible Purchase on the OneTravel website, you will earn points on your CheapOair Rewards Program account (and not on your OneTravel Rewards Program account). If you have more than one Rewards Program account, you cannot transfer or combine points between accounts. Points will not expire as long as a Qualifying Purchase was made through your CheapOair Rewards Program account at least once every two (2) years. "Qualifying Purchase" shall mean a Points-eligible booking which has been completed.
The Rewards Program is owned and operated by Fareportal Inc. and/or its affiliates (“Fareportal”). Fareportal reserves the right to cancel, modify, restrict, waive or terminate the Rewards Program or any aspects or features of the Rewards Program, and Fareportal and Synchrony Bank (collectively, “We”) reserve the right to cancel, modify, restrict, waive or terminate any aspects or features these Credit Reward Terms (including, without limitation, the number of points earned for each dollar in Eligible Purchases made with your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card), at any time and without prior notice.

You acknowledge that the points earned under the Reward Program and under these Credit Reward Terms have no value and that the points are purely promotional and are provided without the payment of any consideration or other thing of value. Unless and until points are redeemed in accordance with these Credit Reward Terms and the Rewards Program Terms, you have no right, title or interest in the points. If your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card is closed, only the Rewards Program Terms will apply to your Rewards Program account and not these Credit Reward Terms. If your Rewards Program account is closed for any reason, you will no longer accumulate points with your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card. The email address associated with your CheapOair Rewards Program account is the email address that will be able to accumulate and redeem the points earned with your CheapOair Credit Card or CheapOair Visa Card. In the event of any conflict between these Credit Reward Terms and the Rewards Program Terms, the Rewards Program Terms will control.
CREDIT/DEBIT CARD PAYMENTS
CREDIT CARD DECLINES
- 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 by 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.
- If your credit card is declined for any reason, we will notify you within 72 hours. Simply submitting the credit card does not automatically guarantee ticketing.
- CheapOair 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: airline could not confirm the booking, fare increased since payment information was submitted and prior to ticketing; or sufficient funds not available on the credit card. 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.
- CheapOair uses stringent safety measures for credit card payment processing. Fraudulent transactions, if any, are reported to airport security, airlines and other federal and state law enforcement.
- 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 CheapOair in cases of charge back or credit card disputes where you have genuinely purchased a service on our website.
- Most credit card transactions over the phone to our Customer Service Department are recorded and are available as evidence in case of any dispute.
- 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.
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.

Our 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 your flights within 72 hours of departure.
Airline-Initiated Schedule Change(s):
Airlines sometimes initiate involuntary schedule changes due to a variety of reasons, such as changes in travel time, layover time, travel date, flight number, terminal changes, etc.
These changes are made by the airline and are outside of our control. Some of these changes may be last-minute and/or occur while you are in transit.
Low Cost Carriers (LCCs)
If your airline initiates changes to your flight itinerary, you will not be charged for change fees or differences in airfare.
If you booked your flight with a LCC, such as Frontier or Spirit, please contact your airline directly regarding any change in schedule.
Our agents are unable to assist you with any changes to LCC bookings.
If you have chosen a combination of 2 one way tickets and one of the flights in your trip is operated by a LCC and the LCC initiated a change to that flight, please take the following steps:
Full Service Carrier
- You need to contact the LCC directly to make changes to the booking.
- Once your changes are confirmed with the LCC, you may contact us if you need to make any additional changes to the non-LCC portion of your trip.
When any change(s) in schedule occurs on a full service carrier, we will work closely with the airline to provide you with a new flight option closest to your original flight time.
Once we have a flight option, we will contact you. Some schedule changes require no action on your part. In other cases, you may need to take action,
depending on the type of airline schedule change notification you receive from us and/or airline.
Prior to Departure
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. CheapOair 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.

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 always important 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 CheapOair 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 CheapOair 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.
OVERBOOKING OF FLIGHTS
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.

Renters not meeting the minimum age requirement will not be given a car and will be cause to void the policy agreement.
A valid driver's license and credit card (or other preapproved payment methods) are required at time of rental. If the driver's license is in another language other than English and the rental is in the United States, an International Driver's Permit may be required. Most rental companies require a Commercial Driver's License for renting a full size van.
Additional taxes and service fees may be imposed by the car rental agency at the time of pick-up and/or drop off. Please verify all fees and rental details with the car agency. Car rental reservations cannot be transferred from one person to another.
Additional equipment, such as child safety seats, navigation systems, etc. must be requested in advance and are not guaranteed. It is highly recommended you purchase some type of car insurance if you are not covered by your own policy. You can be held responsible for any damage to the rental car that was not documented prior to driving the car off the rental lot. There will be an additional fee for any "One Way" rentals. This fee can be higher if picking up in one state and dropping off in another. Please double check for any surcharges or fees if you will not be returning the car to the exact same location you picked it up from.
Daily rates imply a 24 hour reservation period. Weekly rates imply a 5-7 day reservation period. You could be charged additional fees for cars returned at a different time or date or location from the original reservation. For example, holding the car for 27 hours could cost you a single daily rate, plus an hourly rate or half a day rate or a full day rate as imposed by the supplier for the additional 3 hours.
Unlimited mileage rates have no restrictions on the number of miles you are allowed to drive. However, certain geographical restrictions may still apply. Miles per day rates specify a maximum number of miles that you are allowed to accumulate. A per mile fee will be charged for any additional miles.
Payment Taxes and Fees:
- meet age requirements;
- present a credit card in the driver's name; and
- present a valid driver's license.
All CheapOair car rental reservation booking fees are non-refundable. CheapOair will charge a service fee of $10 for cancellations or a change of reservation.
Some rates may apply only to cars picked up within 24 hours of the arrival time shown on an airline boarding pass or ticket. If you require a pick up time outside of that timeframe, please contact the car rental agency to confirm they will honor your reservation.
VACATION PACKAGE RULES & REGULATIONS
If you are using a debit card, please check with the supplier or email us to determine if there are additional restrictions. Some rental companies will not accept a debit card as a valid form of payment and could result in being denied the rental. Local residents may have additional restrictions. It is recommended you check with us or the car rental company to verify. Falsifying information may void company liability and you may be responsible for any damages or injuries that may incur.
