AIRFARE: a. General Conditions Governing Air Transport
Airline tickets are highly restrictive, non-refundable, and non-transferable. Modification of passenger names, dates, times, routings, or departure/arrival airports is at the sole discretion of the airline and, if permitted, will likely be subject to a substantial change fee. Passenger is responsible for any such fees. With regard to the purchase of air tickets, TRAVELHOLICS, LLC. acts simply as an intermediary between you and the airline. Once you book a reservation, your credit card or debit card will be charged for the amount shown – regardless of whether or not the reservation is used. Credit will not be given for any unused airline tickets and cannot be used toward any future bookings.
All tickets will be issued for economy class unless otherwise specified. All travel will be round-trip unless otherwise specified. Seat assignments are subject to the airlines policies and may not be able to be made until you are at the airport on the day of departure. Airline tickets booked through TRAVELHOLICS, LLC. may not eligible to earn frequent flyer miles. You agree to confirm all bookings with the airline prior to the stated date of departure (TRAVELHOLICS, LLC. recommends confirming 72 hours prior).
Direct flights may be “non-stop” or may involve one or more stop-overs (in the latter case this means the same flight by the airline, because the flight number remains the same). The same applies to connecting flights that may be subject to crew changes. When you reserve a scheduled or charter flight involving a stop-over in a town, and the second flight takes off from a different airport to the airport of arrival, ensure that you have sufficient time for reaching the second airport. The journey to the other airport is at your own expense. TRAVELHOLICS, LLC. will not be able to reimburse you for these costs, nor will it be liable if you miss the second flight.

If an airline cancels or delays a flight, you must work directly with the airline to ensure you arrive at your destination on or ahead of time. TRAVELHOLICS, LLC. will not provide any refund for Trips missed, in part or full.
