Flights FAQ’s
Q. How do I change my flights?

We have negotiated many different types of agreements with different airlines; thus, the rules and restrictions for exchanges and cancellations vary greatly if allowed at all. When allowed, airlines require that we collect a fee for the exchange plus any difference in fare when necessary. Exchange fees start at $125 and go as high as $350. Your exchange agent can tell you when you call.

We must insist, however, that you do not book an itinerary for the exchange. Please keep in mind that all exchanges must be on itineraries provided by the same airline that issued the original ticket. In some cases, the airline may restrict or deny exchanges requested with as few as seven days before departure.

Once you are prepared to give our exchange agent the new itinerary, please call us at (866) 883-0908. We are open 24/7. To expedite this process, please have your old ticket and/or file number with you as well as the new itinerary you wish to book.

Q. What is an “E” ticket?

E-tickets, are offered by many major airlines, and allow you to travel without a paper ticket, eliminating the worry of leaving your tickets behind. OneTravel.com offers e-tickets when they are available.

Bring government issued photo identification (such as a driver’s license or passport) to the airport. E-ticketed passengers must have a printed boarding pass in order to proceed directly through security for check in at the gate. Customers with check-in baggage or E-tickets who do not have printed boarding passes must go to the ticket counter prior to going through security checkpoints.

Q. Why are the fares different from other sites?

Airlines practice the marketing concept known as "yield management," where they sell as many seats as they can at the highest price they can get. It is impossible to pinpoint the cost of any single seat on any given flight. For example, some seats will be assigned special fares for corporate clients, while other seats will have been sold through a consolidator at a discount. Similarly, some fares may have been bought at a discount with frequent-flier award points or from a last minute Web special. At our site, you will always be quoted the lowest fare available to us at that time.

Q. How do I cancel this reservation?

Most airline tickets issued are non-refundable, and non-transferable. Name changes are not permitted. However, you may be able to exchange your tickets for different dates. Penalty fees apply and not all tickets are changeable. Please call our exchange department for details. (866) 883-0908

Q. Please quote me a fare.

As airlines fill flights or change fares, our database immediately reflects those changes. Since the fares change frequently we are unable to quote fares via email.

Please call our sales team at (866) 883-0908

Q. What is a ‘return period’, and how long is it for OneTravel.com partners?

The ‘return period’ is an amount of time referral traffic from an affiliate partner is ‘tagged’ for that specific affiliate partner. The ‘return period’ for the OneTravel.com Affiliate Partner Program is 90 days.

Billing & Payments
Q. When can I expect my refund?

When a reservation is cancelled the same day it was booked, funds for the Airline portion are not collected. Any pending charges you may have seen would have been a "pending hold" for verification. These funds will return to your available credit and will not reflect as a refund.  This process normally takes from 3-7 business days, depending on your banking institutions procedures.

Please note: Some Prepaid credit card companies will hold pending authorizations for up to 30 days.

If the airline rules allow for cancellation the day after booking, funds for the Airline portion will be refunded within 7 – 14 business days. It will depend upon the Airline(s) and your banking institutions policies. At times the refund will post before the charge is processed or may not appear on your current statement. Please contact your bank to verify the refund was received.

Any refunds requested after 48-hours of purchase are based solely upon the Airline(s) rules. If approved, the refund will generally take 1 -2 billing statement cycles. In some exceptional cases refunds may take longer than originally anticipated. An email update will be sent to you advising of any delay.

Q. I received an email advising of a refund I did not request.

These refunds are typically for seat assignment requests that could not be fulfilled by the Airline or during a quality check if we detected an overcharge. This refund does not affect your airline ticket purchase.

Q. I have multiple charges on my account

This occurs when multiple Airlines or passengers are booked in a reservation. You will see a charge for each ticket processed separately. Any service fees, taxes or additional services may also show as separate charges with the description of Airline/Taxes and Fees. When added together these amounts should total the amount you were quoted.

Q. I have duplicate charges for the same trip on my account.

Verify with your bank what company the charges are coming from that have posted. Most tickets issued through OneTravel will have the description of NV or Las Vegas on your statement. If you are certain there are posted duplicate charges from OneTravel, please contact the Billing Department for assistance at 646-738-4943.

Q. I’ve been charged more than what was quoted.

Confirm with your bank whether the charges in question have posted or are pending to your account. At the time of reservation a "pending charge" is placed on your account for the full amount. The bank/credit card company then puts a "hold" on that dollar amount, until the transaction either posts or is cleared. With a successful transaction, the charge will typically post to the account within 2-3 business days, at that time the money will be deducted from your account, and the "hold" will be released. At times the “pending hold” can show on your account after the charge has posted. Please allow time for the “pending hold” to return to your available credit. This is dependent on your banking institutions policies.

Please note: Your initial quote may not include seat charges, insurance or any additional services requested. These services are charged at the time they are selected and will increase the total cost of your trip. Posted charges may appear in multiple transactions which should total to the amount you were quoted.

Please check the official website of the rental company. These sites generally have age restrictions posted there, as well as information regarding seat belt laws, child seat requirements, and speed limits.

Generally a credit card is required to secure a car. Many car rental companies will not accept a Debit card, cash for payment or 3rd party credit cards as payment. Check with the individual car company for their policies. All rates are quoted and guaranteed in US Dollars.

Print or email the online confirmation from OneTravel.com. This confirmation number from the car rental company is all that is needed, other than a valid driver's license and a major credit card.

They may check this at the time of rental, when the actual rental agreement is completed.

It isn't required, but it can't hurt. It costs approximately $20 to purchase an International Driver's Permit (IDP), which is simply a translation of a valid U.S. driver's license. This document can prevent a lot of problems for clients driving abroad, especially if they are driving in a country where they don't speak the language, or in a non-tourist area. Per the U.S. State Department only two companies are allowed to issue IDPs.

The name you provide when booking your travel is used to perform the watch list matching before a boarding pass is ever issued. You should ensure that the name provided when booking your travel matches the government ID that you will use when traveling.
Due to difference in boarding pass systems, boarding passes may not always display the exact name you provided when booking your travel.
