Frequently Asked Questions

Group travel involves working with the airlines to lock down airfare up to a year in advance. By booking as a group, you are given the flexibility to change traveler names, number of travelers, trip dates, and layover city all within the planning process.

10 or more travelers qualify as a group according to airline policy. If you have less than 10 passengers, send us an email with your trip information, and we will get back to you within 24 hours. Group bookings are defined as 10 or more people traveling together, booked within the same reservation.

While there are no formal discounts for group flights and bookings, we promise to find the lowest fares available. The real advantage of group airfare is flexibility, which often saves money in the long run. Tickets booked individually are non-transferrable and incur steep penalties if your itinerary changes.
