Most importantly, if you need assurances that your airline trip will actually take place, then, get a low fare guarantee from CheapOair. In short, it is also here that you will want to pursue a cancellation refund or ticket change. Briefly speaking, CheapOair offers two programs to its customers: Price Match Promise (“PMP”) and Compassion Exception Policy (CEP).
Under the PRICE MATCH PROMISE, CheapOair wants you to be 100% confident that you have received a great deal. Also, if you find a lower price for the same flight itinerary offered and available for booking (on a Major OTA Competitor’s site) within twenty-four (24) hours of booking, CheapOair will match that lower price by refunding the difference in price. Similarly, if you prefer, they will cancel your booking with them for a full refund.

The Price Match Promise (PMP)
How do I notify CheapOair that I want to invoke the PMP?
To invoke the PMP, all you need to do is contact CheapOair at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CheapOair booking number. Include all of the key details of the lower priced itinerary: airline, flight itinerary, date, number of customers and seat type. Also, provide documentation such as the exact URL or any screenshots. Similarly, this will enable CheapOair’s customer service representatives to verify that such itinerary satisfies the terms and conditions of the PMP.
Moreover, customer service must be able to locate the lower fare from the information you provide. Also, CheapOair reserves the right to deny any claims that cannot be reasonably verified. Consequently, upon proper verification of the PMP, you will be given the choice to either: a) keep your itinerary with a refund of the difference in the total price, or b) cancel your booking with us for a full refund.
The Compassion Exception Policy (CEP)
Furthermore, certain customers may be eligible to receive a discount off cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees. The Compassion Exception Policy (CEP) is described below:
|Category||Eligibility Requirements||New Booking||Exchange / Refund / Cancel|
|U.S Military (traveler and Immediate family*)||The military e-mail address must be provided||Up to $35||100% discount off our cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees|
|Customers directly affected by severe weather, natural disaster or other uncontrollable events||If an airline is waiving change/cancel fees, we will follow. If a carrier has not announced waiver policy on fees, Agents are advised to charge the normal service fee||Up to $35||100% discount off our cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees|
|Bereavement (affecting traveler and Immediate family*)||Letter from the funeral director is required||Up to $35||100% discount off our cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees|
|Customers with visual impairments||Customer must state that he or she has a visual impairment and is unable to use the web site||Always Match The Website Fare||50% discount off our cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees.|
*In short, immediate family is defined as spouse, domestic partner, children, parents, siblings, grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. Furthermore, eligibility applies whether the relationship is biological, adoptive, step, in-law or domestic partner, foster, or ward/legal guardian.
Of course, the above CEP only applies to CheapOair’s own cancellation, refund or ticket change service fees. Consequently, customers may still be responsible for airline and/or other supplier imposed penalties, as well as any fare difference. Therefore, CheapOair does not control the policies of these airlines and/or other suppliers.
All flights should be confirmed with the airline directly. They may have last-minute schedule changes. Therefore, for domestic flights, you must re-confirm at least 24 hours prior to departure. After 72 hours, the same applies for flights to Hawaii and international destinations.
For the most part, upgrades and standbys will not be permitted. Likewise, upgrades/standbys are strictly the responsibilities of the respective airlines.
In addition, many of CheapOair’s discounted tickets do not allow for frequent flyer mileage accrual.
Most importantly, all seat requests will be forwarded to the airlines. Also, please be advised that not all seat requests are guaranteed. Therefore, you will need to contact the airlines directly if you want to receive immediate confirmation on your seat assignments. In addition, you will have to contact the airlines for any special requirements like a stretcher or wheelchair.
Note: CheapOair reserves the right to cancel requests for travel to destinations that have been embargoed by the US government.
Moreover, a passenger’s duty or departure tax may be assessed upon departure from international destinations such as Mexico, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, and Australia. These are local government taxes collected at the airports. Also, they are not included in initial ticket costs.
In short, a $28 administrative fee will be charged for travel receipts requested for bookings that were made a year or more in advance
Also, a low fare guarantee is your best assurance that you are getting the best fare available!
