|Advise your clients to re-confirm their flights with the airlines directly, at least 72 hours before departure (outbound and return).|
|Make sure that the passenger names on the reservations are an exact match to their passports (this must be done before the tickets are issued).|
|The purchase of optional travel insurance is strongly recommended.|
|New baggage restrictions apply for domestic and international travel. Your e-ticket confirmation e-mail notification will have a link for the baggage policy details, that are specific to your client’s trip. In addition, you may also contact the airlines directly or visit www.travelbaggage.info for more information.|
|Advise your clients to buy their tickets well in advance. Studies show that they are more likely to get a lower price on their tickets if they buy sooner, rather than later.|
|Check-in with the airlines is recommended at least 3-4 hours prior to departure for international travel and at least 2 hours prior to departure for domestic USA travel. Late check-in may result in the cancellation of your client’s reservations, and their tickets may not have any remaining value.|
Do you have any tips that you would like to give other travelers?
