Fees and Bonding
ATOL Protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services sold by www.travbulls.co.uk. For a flight only booking made online and ticketed within 24 hours of payment - we operate as a ticket provider. This therefore means there is no ATOL protection. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. By charging a Protection & Bonding Fee, this does not imply that a booking is covered by our ATOL. For all scheduled airline bookings, we charge a Scheduled Airline Service Fee. This is not an insurance against the failure of the airline. Why have you contacted me telling there is a problem with the fare quoted? We get the information we show (both fares and availability) from third party companies which interface directly to the individual airlines. This information can occasionally go out of date. This is primarily caused by what is called 'caching' of data. These third parties and the airlines themselves keep temporary copies of the information (so they can respond quickly). If this information is not kept up to date then problems can occur. This information is updated by those third parties and airlines which we have no control over. This can lead to situations where this may stay out of date for some while after your booking has been found to be incorrect. When we receive this information we pass this on immediately to the third parties but cannot guarantee they will update their systems quickly. In this situation we will offer your one of three courses of action: 1. Book the same itinerary at the new price 2. Book a new itinerary (as close as we can get it) 3. Get a full refund.
Why can't you refund my payment by card immediately?
When we have found a problem with your booking and offer to refund your money we will always do so immediately. This will not always be reflected by your card issuer on your account. This is due to the way card transactions are processed and is something we cannot control. When you make a payment to us we receive an authorization to receive the funds. Later on that day (usually at midnight) we will then settle this amount (the money will leave your account). If we cancel this authorization (the usual situation) we will not receive ANY funds from you and the transaction will not go forward for settling. Now as an authorization has been granted this will remain on your account for up to 72 hours (although in a lot of cases it is reversed out immediately) the time this takes is dependening on the card issuer and again not something we have any control over. In this case we have not and will not receive any of your money. Unfortunately this will affect your spendable balance on your account until this authorization has lapsed.
Can I make changes or cancel my flight?
Many of the cheaper tickets are non-refundable. This means that you will lose your money if you choose to cancel. Some tickets are changeable, but usually for a fee. The most restrictive tickets are non-changeable also, to change these you would effectively cancel and rebook
What is your Refund Policy?
Refunds will not be paid until they have been received by us from the relevant airline or Supplier. Usually a delay of 8-10 weeks may be incurred.
How can I pay for my trip?
For online transactions we accept most credit cards (including MasterCard, Visa, and American Express) and debit cards. For offline transactions we also accept cheques and bank transfers (although sufficient time for clearance will be required)
How many hours prior to departure should I check in?
This can depend on the specific airline and destination (please check with them), but generally: * International flights - at least 3 hours before departure * European Destinations - at least 2 hours before departure * Domestic - at least an hour before departure
What is a Code share flight?
Many airlines sell seats on flights not operated by them. They will typically create their own flight number although the flight itself is operated by someone else. Whenever possible we will inform you if the flight is being operated by another carrier. The check-in details at the airport will usually detail all the flight numbers a flight holds including the code share ones.
What is an E-Ticket?
An eticket is an electronic ticket. Most airlines now issue an eticket instead of a paper ticket. This has a number of distinct advantages: * you cannot forget or lose it * It can be issued quickly and you do not have to wait for its arrival * at some airports you can check-in using check-in machines avoiding queuing. What are the new requirements for entry to the US under the Waiver scheme? For all customers now travelling under the waiver scheme you will need to apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) prior to travel. This applies to UK passport holders along with a number of other countries. To apply online please visit httpss://esta.cbp.dhs.gov or call our reservations team to speak to a consultant if you require help.
