Typically 14 days notice obtains the best rates. Occasionally there are time periods or certain cities where 21 or even 30 days is needed for the best rate.
Typically a Saturday night stay at your point of destination is required for the lower fares. This can vary and your agent will let you know if it is required.
Most lower fares are VERY restrictive in regard to changes or cancellations. Typically you are allowed to change your reservation, but you will be required to pay a change fee imposed by the airline or tour operator as well as any increase in costs for the new travel.
On airline tickets, NO name changes are allowed at anytime. Some tour/charter bookings will allow a name change, usually with a fee, if completed within a certain number of days prior to the departure of the flight/tour. This varies by tour operator and destination. You will need to verify the ability to make tour/charter name changes directly with your booking agent.
Regardless of your destination you will need to travel with a Government issued Photo ID (such as a drivers license or passport) if you are over the age of 16. The requirement of other documents such as birth certificates, passports, and visas will vary depending on your destination. Please consult with your booking agent if you have questions or see our Traveler Resources page for this information.
