We will then submit your passport name(s) and departure city and request flights. We will typically have a reservation back within 24 hours and will contact you via email (or call if necessary) with the flight details and also confirm pricing with you. You will then have 48 hours to confirm or cancel the reservation. There is no obligation to check flights.
Please double check your passport name against the name on the reservation as no change of names on tickets is permitted once they are issued. If you want to confirm, the airlines will want to immediately issue your e-ticket(s) so we will need to arrange for payment in full.
