For every sale, Sky Lawn Travel offers the option to purchase travel insurance to cover the customer against any unforeseen circumstances that may occur prior to, during or after your trip. There are different types of insurance packages available and the purchase of insurance is an optional decision to the customer.
It is the customers’ responsibility to read and familiarize themselves with the travel insurance policy to understand what their purchased travel insurance covers and under what conditions. If the customer wants to make an insurance claim it is their responsibility to contact Sky Lawn Travel as soon as possible. Please contact us if you require more information regarding travel insurance.
Cancellation / Changes: If you need to change or cancel your travel plans‚ it is your responsibility to notify us in writing of such a request. Notifying us is not enough in many cases as we have automated software to issue many of our tickets instantly. These tickets are discount tickets‚ which have restrictions on them and may be up to 100% non–refundable and non-changeable. Therefore you should assume all reservations are non-refundable the moment you make the booking. We charge a service fee for any changes or cancellations to fares. In addition to our charges‚ most airlines also have a penalty or cancellation fee for any changes or cancellations to fares. Furthermore‚ each ticket has a minimum and maximum stay validity period. Maximum stay can range from 30days to a maximum of 12months and minimum stay can range from 2 nights to 14 nights‚ depending on the itinerary and the type of ticket sold. Changes will not be permitted where the length of the ticket is less than the minimum stay or more than the maximum stay period. Also note‚ partially used tickets become 100% nonrefundable even if only one segment of the ticket is used.
Name Changes / Corrections: If the tickets have been issued‚ please note name changes and corrections are not permitted. Once the tickets have been issued and if permitted by the airline‚ an additional fee will be assessed by Sky Lawn Travel and the airline directly.
Customers who do not appear or ‘no show’ for their flight will forfeit the entire fare paid. If you arrive at the airport late or are denied boarding you will forfeit the entire fare paid.
Lost Tickets: If you lose your tickets, it may be possible to re-issue them for a fee. The amount payable will depend on the circumstances of the loss and how close to the travel date you discover it. However, not all tickets can be re-issued; which is another good reason for ensuring you have sufficient insurance cover. Tickets will be dispatched to you in accordance with your instructions and we accept no responsibility for their delivery.
Frequent Flyer Programs: Almost all of our Airfares allow accumulation of frequent flyer miles. You enter your frequent flyer program and number in our booking process. Your frequent flyer information is sent to the airline once your ticket is issued.
Gift Cards: Not applicable on Transat Holidays and Nolitours bookings. This is a limited time offer and may be withdrawn without prior notice.
