I am confused, Trip Locator, Booking Number, Airline Confirmation Number
A Trip Locator is a booking registration code of a 6 digit combination of Letter and Numbers.
This code is given by the Central Reservation System. At the same time this number is your booking number with Sky-tours.
The airline as well gives you a separate confirmation number. If you look at your itinerary
(www.militaryfares.com/trip/) you can find this confirmation number.
If you need to contact the airline they would need this number in order to find your booking on their computer system.
How do I see if there are any time changes after i purchased my ticket
If the airline changes the flight times they send a message to the central computer system.
Our link: www.militaryfares.com/trip/ is direct
connected with this system and you see always the latest information about your flights.
Can the airline cancel my flight after purchase
In very rare circumstance airlines may cancel flights. By going to our website:
www.militaryfares.com/trip/ you will always stay informed about the status of your booking.
Who tells me when a flight is cancelled or flying times changed
It's your obligation! We offer only passive notification support (unless you are a Gold Member).
We therefore encourage you to have a look at your itinerary as often you can. Its always available 24/7 under:
I need to cancel my flight
Most of the tickets sold online are special fare tickets who either do not allow refunds at all (non refundable)
or have a very high cancellation fee. If you are not protected by our cancellation protection you may send us a note
via our support system www.militaryfares.com/trip/ to find out if
you can expect any money should you ned to cancel.
I need to change my flight
Most of the tickets sold on the internat have a very restricted change policy or simply do not allow any changes.
If your ticket should be changeable the airlines charge something around $150 change fee plus the fare difference
of the todays price for the ticket compared with what you paid originally. If you need a change, please contact us
via our support: www.militaryfares.com/support/.
When I wanted to finish the booking the system says, similar booking already exists
This is an alert when our database finds already a similar booking. If this is not the case, just ignore this warning
and go on with your booking.
I paid for seat assignment how does it work?
Your seat assigment request if you have done one, is send to the airline via our internal reservation system.
We transmit to them your preferences: aisle or window.
The airline than assign seats accordingly to your request. You can't choose your seat number nor do a row selection.
Skytours does not guarantee this - this is only a request service.
Online Check In
Many airlines let you check in online. But please be aware that our Worldspan Trip locator is not the confirmation
code of the airlines. Please look at your booking.
Go to the website www.militaryfares.com/trip/ sign in with your Booking

I am a Spouse/Relative what to I have to enter in my booking
When giving the final details and when ask for Military ID, Branch,Installation/Base,

I booked a one way ticket but I received a roundtrip ticket
Our state of the art booking engine uses artificial intelligence mimicking a real travel agents search for finding
the best fare and connection. If you where searching for a one way airfare and this fare would be higher than a
round-trip, our system books and issues a round-trip instead. Only use the outbound ticket and ignore the return portion.
THOSE SPECIAL NE WAY FARES ARE STRICTLY NON REFUNDABLE!
A special round trip ticket are in fact a combinations of 2 tickets. We sometimes have agreement with airlines
at a special low price. This combined with another flight we can get you a cheaper airfare. We mark this as
"Special round trip" and issue two or more tickets for your flight.
Why don't you have a Phone Number on your Web Site
We sell worldwide and in over 30 languages. Such a service would be very costly and would not improve our client service.
We prefer getting a written notice via our support ticket system and with offices both in the US West Coast and in Europe
we are answering 24/7 all support request within generally 8 hours ( allow delays during weekends. For extreme urgent
matter regarding your flight, please call the airline direct.
You show me one total price but you actually charge 2 times once for the ticket and for the booking fee.
Yes, we do this as often we can. Our competitors say that they don't charge a fee and charge and your card. But in this
charge their profit is added - of course.
To do this they have to markup their price with 2% as they have to pay a merchant fee to the Credit Card Company.
That you do not see a fee does not mean they don't have one. We all have to make money after all.
We could do the same but than we would have to add to the ticket price as well 2%. To save you this surcharge, we charge
for the ticket direct via the airline (as long they absorb
the Credit Card fees) and than we charge for the insurance and extras you purchased.
All this is done in your best interest to get you the cheapest possible price. and on top of it its much more transparent.
You have not selected any Cancellation protection. Please confirm that you really do not want to be protected and that you are aware your ticket is non refundable, unless you are protected through our cancellation protection.
