IMPORTANT: Samsung Note 7 Banned from most Aircrafts

Passengers and flight crews will be banned from bringing Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones on all airline flights under emergency orders issued Friday by both Transport Canada and the U.S. Department of Transportation in response to reports of the phones catching fire.  The phones may not be carried on board or packed in checked bags on flights to and from Canada and the United States or within either country. The phones also can’t be shipped as air cargo.

Passengers with the phones will not be allowed to board planes. And those who try to evade the U.S. ban by packing the phones in checked luggage may be subject to criminal prosecution in addition to fines. Transport officials in both countries warned that carrying the phones in checked luggage increases the potential danger to the flight.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says there have been nearly 100 reports of batteries in Note 7 phones overheating in the United States.

Special requests are on request basis and are not guaranteed. The passengers need to contact the airlines directly to reconfirm such requests.

Credit Card:

Appearance of charges on credit cards/Visa Debits:

This is a common practice for many other merchants such as: gas stations, restaurants and hotels. The correct amount will display when the transaction is shown as a ‘Posted Transaction’.

A delay may occur between the time a transaction is settled and removed from Authorized Transactions, and when it appears in Posted Transactions.

Some transactions may appear as both an Authorized and a Posted Transaction until settled.

When applying a debit/visa card for payment, and in the event of a cancellation, your funds may be held up to 60days by your financial institution. We strongly recommend an alternative form of payment to avoid any inconveniences.

If you are using a foreign or a third party credit card to make your booking, our Back Office Processing Department may contact you by email or telephone to collect more information. Since FlyFar is a Canadian company, passengers using foreign credit cards may be charged a foreign transaction fee and/or currency conversion fee from their financial institute.

We do not take any responsibility for foreign transaction fee and/or currency conversion fee.

FlyFar is a Canadian website that deals with many international vendors. When we display a vendor booking, using another currency, our website will show the equivalent to Canadian dollar amount.

Self-Transfer Guarantee

Self-Transfer Guarantee

“Self-transfer guarantee” is an exclusive policy designed to assist those passengers that are impacted by an involuntary schedule change, delay or cancellation of their confirmed flight resulting from factors, which can occur in the standard course of air transportation.  

With the implementation of this policy (Self-transfer guarantee), we can offer our customers the best possible price and service experience in the travel industry. We strive to make your journey as smooth and comfortable as possible.  Upon activation of this policy, in the event of an involuntary schedule change or cancellation, we shall find you a reasonable alternative flight option(s) or other means of transportation to your destination, or a refund of the unused flight portion. All passengers should be in contact with FlyFar and not the airline in order to be covered under this policy.

This policy covers two categories depending on the urgency of your file.

Category 1: ( Where the schedule change takes place more than 48 hours prior to departure)

This option applies ONLY if the schedule change (Flight change, or cancellation) takes place outside of 48 hours prior to the first leg of your confirmed itinerary, which prevents you from reaching your final destination, or your arrival in destination is delayed by more than 24 hours after the original arrival time i.e. you would either miss your connecting flight(s) or your flight(s) is cancelled.

If you become aware of the schedule change under Category 1, you must get in touch with us immediately without delay either by telephone, email or via our online chat platform found on our website. If you fail to contact us in a timely manner, you will not be covered under this guarantee. If we become aware of the change first, under category 1, we will get in touch with you within a reasonable time.  Once we are informed of the change or cancellation either by you or the airline, at our discretion, we will offer you one of the following resolutions:

  • We will find you an alternative transportation to your destination. If we can’t re-protect you with the same carrier, we will offer you an alternative flight(s) or other means of transportation to your destination entirely at our cost.  In case of lack of availability, and no alternative can be offered and once we are in a mutual agreement, you can purchase the similar ticket at the airport in the same cabin class and we will refund you the price difference between the two tickets. Any other extra services or upgrades related to these new tickets will not be covered under this policy.  
  • For all unused portions, we will refund you accordingly. This option will be offered in case we fail to offer you an alternative transportation.

If you become aware of the schedule change under Category 2, you must get in touch with us immediately without delay either by telephone, email or via our online chat platform found on our website. If you fail to contact us immediately, you will not be covered under this guarantee. If we become aware of the change first under category 2, we will get in touch with you within a reasonable time.  Once we are informed of the change or cancellation either by you or the airline, we will offer you one of the following resolutions at your discretion:

We may offer to cover part of the costs associated with this change upon a mutual agreement on a case by case basis. In rare cases where you miss the connecting flight or the flight cancellation occurs and you are unable to contact us due to time restriction, you may purchase the ticket without prior agreement with us. We will refund you the price of such alternative transportation ticket(s) upto twice the value of the original ticket price of the unused portion to your destination. Any other extra services or upgrades related to these new tickets will not be covered under this policy.  We will only refund you once we are in receipt of the written documentation proof of the alternative transportation and the proof of flight delay or cancellation.

Communication and notices:

Once we provide you with alternative options, your response is required within 48 hours the latest in exceptional cases. If the 48 hour window has passed, the offer becomes null and void and is no longer covered under this guarantee.

Any related costs will become the passenger’s responsibility in any such cases.

Meals and Other Onboard Services

Many carriers are no longer providing meals and other services ( ex. headsets, drinks) free of cost while onboard. It’s the passenger’s responsibility to inquire about this information prior to purchase and make an informed decision about their travel purchase.

The fee is for single entry of individuals between the ages of 14 and 79. The payment can only be made in Colombian Pesos, US Dollars or via credit card. The fee does not guarantee entry to Colombia and won’t be reimbursed.

Seat Selection

Seat Selection:

Not all economy class tickets offer free seat selection. Some seats can be selected free of cost during online check-in within 24 hours of departure time and some seats require a fee to be paid to the airline. Each airline has a different policy on seat selection. Please verify this information prior to purchase. Seat selection requests at time of booking are not guaranteed and are non-refundable. The airline has full rights to amend any seat selection without prior notice. If a voluntary change is made to a booking, any previously purchased seat selections are not guaranteed to be transferred to new flights. If a flight booking is voluntarily canceled, seat selection requests are non-refundable. FlyFar charges a nominal service charge to select seats for your booking, you will be notified of the amount at time of purchase.

Baggage Allowance and Restrictions

Baggage Allowance and Restrictions:

Baggage fees are not included in the cost of your ticket unless permitted by the airline. Baggage allowance varies from airline to airline and can also vary based on the class of service purchased (I.e. not all economy class tickets offer free baggage allowance). Some airlines charge additional fees for both; check-in and carry-on baggage. Some airlines charge additional fees for adding baggage to the reservation at the airport or after you’ve completed your purchase online. We strongly suggest that baggage is added in advance for such carriers. Moreover; it is the passengers responsibility to check any baggage rules with the airline before making a purchase on our website as FlyFar has zero control over the airline’s ever-changing baggage policies. If you are not sure about a baggage policy, please contact FlyFar prior to booking in order to verify the specific airlines details. FlyFar charges a nominal service charge to add baggage to your booking, you will be notified of the amount at time of purchase.

During the booking process, we will only display Economy, Premium Economy, Business or First Class of service types. Many airlines offer branded fare options within these four classes of service (For example: Basic Economy or Flex Economy). We may display a fare as Economy Class even though it is Basic Economy. Since our website is not able to accommodate these branded fare types, we will only list the main classes of service during the purchase process. If you are unsure of the branded fare type within your class of service, please contact us prior to completing your booking so that we can validate the full baggage terms for you.

There is a rare chance that your ticket may involve two carriers that do not have ticketing agreements with one another. This means that your baggage will not be checked through to your final destination. In such cases, you will need to collect your baggage and recheck in and this may result in additional baggage charges. Please verify the minimum connection time and baggage information with the airlines directly before your departure. Airlines that do not have ticketing agreements are usually labeled on the FlyFar website as ‘Self-Transfer’ fares. Any baggage purchased at the time of booking is 100% non-refundable.

Online Fare Reservations, Misprints, and Product Availability

In the event that more than one set of conditions apply to the same trip then the most restrictive conditions of both sets apply to the entire journey. While it is possible to make bookings electronically for some of the travel services, the act of reserving a product electronically does not imply a final confirmation or commitment by FlyFar to actually deliver the product reserved at the prices indicated. FlyFar, endeavors to provide current and accurate information on its website, however any misprints or errors may occur. Accordingly FlyFar, reserves the right to change the prices, fees, charges regarding the goods and services available on its website at any time and from time to time without any notice or liability to the user or any other person. Also, FlyFar, cannot guarantee that goods and services advertised on the website may be available when ordered or thereafter FlyFar reserves the right at any time to reject, amend, cancel or terminate any order without prior notification. A final confirmation is only given by FlyFar once the company has issued the airline tickets, a final invoice and delivered travel documents for the product reserved. Terms and conditions of the confirmation and sale will vary depending on the product reserved and are generally set out in the company’s website or other notices issued from time to time.

OB Ticketing Fees

The Airline ticketing fees, also called OB Fees, are mandatory fees defined and collected by particular Airlines.
The fee is charged to each passenger when a ticket is issued in International markets (at first ticket issuance only).
These fees are imposed by the airline on certain routes to cover costs for a specific Form of Payment (credit card) or for other ticketing services.
Airline ticketing fees are non-refundable and are collected at time of ticket issuance. Depending on the airline, you may see this as a separate additional charge on your statement or as a single consolidated amount.

FlyFar Booking Fees

FlyFar will often times charge a booking fee on flights to a particular destination. This fee is lumped into the total cost of your booking. By agreeing to the total purchase price of the ticket, you have also agreed to the FlyFar booking fee. This fee is charged by FlyFar (not the airline) in CAD.
