How does an online booking process work?
When you select your suitable dates for travel, departure city and destination our website will take you to available flight schedule page as a result of your search criteria. You can select the desire flight schedule and click “Select” button next to availability display. You will be required to fill mandatory information from next page and confirm the payment details. Once you complete the booking process, an automated email will be sent to you advising that we have received your booking request and we shall complete your booking during our business hours. Please be advised, “Travel Traders does not guarantee whether the price of tickets and flight schedules displayed to you at the time of booking online and at the time of issuance of tickets will be same.” Online booking done on our website outside our normal business hours will be dealt with only in following business hours and prices and schedule may be different than original booking. In such cases, our consultants will contact you to give you other suitable options if possible. You may decide to withdraw your original booking request in such case.
Is my ticket guaranteed once purchased online?
