Doe" to "John Doe"), the substitution of one traveler in place of another, a reduction to the number in the party, and/or the termination of the entire trip. All other changes to a reservation constitute a revision.

International and Regional Flights:
Some fares may not accrue miles.
All airline tickets once issued are non-refundable.
We strongly recommend that you select flights with a minimum of 2 hours to make your connection time. Many flights displayed on our site will have much shorter connection times. You are responsible for selecting the right itinerary for you and we can't be responsible for any misconnections due to tight connections that might affect your itinerary.
It is your responsibility to reconfirm your flights directly with the airlines at least 48 hours prior to your departure date (outbound and inbound).
It is also your responsibility to verify luggage allowance with each airline. Please note your itinerary may include two or more airlines, and the luggage allowed on each flight may differ from one airline company to another.
Anyone under the age of 2(at the time of travel) is considered an infant and will not get a separate seat. The Airlines still require a ticket to be issued under the infant’s name and certain fees and taxes need to be paid.
Airlines occasionally oversell flights. TripCorner.com cannot be held responsible for these situations and will not refund moneys for such situations since they are beyond our control. Passengers need to present and resolve their compensation issues to the airline directly at the time the situation arises.
We will not refund any money due to passengers arriving late for check-in.
Passengers should plan to check in 3 hours prior international flight times and 2 hours prior regional flight times.
Passengers are responsible for verifying their air itineraries with the airline 24 hours before departure. We will not refund moneys for missed flights due to airline schedule changes.
Airline tickets - Missed or Cancelled segments.
If you miss your departure flight, the airline reserves the right to mark your ticket as a "No Show" reservation. No show = No Value. This means your ticket cannot be changed or refunded, even with a penalty. If you are on the way to the airport and feel you might miss your flight, you MUST call the airline as soon as possible to avoid this "No Show" situation. Once the record has been marked as "No Show", we will no longer have any control in regard to the itinerary or any possible refund. It's also important to note that if you do miss any of your flights ALL OTHER FLIGHTS ON THE SAME ITINERARY WILL ALSO BE CANCELLED under the "No Show" policy.
If you've made your departure flight, but you've missed your subsequent flight, you should immediately go to the nearest ticket counter of the airline. If you've missed your flight due to a problem that is within the airline's control, they should protect you on the very next available flight. If you've missed this flight due to something that is not within the airline's control (weather, air traffic, etc.) or due to your own fault, it will be left entirely up to the airline's discretion to protect you or not. If the airline decides that protection is not warranted, it will be up to the passenger to find their own way to their final destination at the passenger's expense.
Our list of available hotels for a city may change according to your selected dates of travel.
Our "Recommended" hotels list is determined by customer reviews and our team based on location, rating and value. We do not receive any type of compensation or incentive from hotels to be included in our recommended list.
You can sort our list of hotels by price, by name, and hotel class. As default, we show hotels sorted by price, offering the least expensive as the first option. We encourage you to explore other hotel options before booking your trip. Maps with hotel locations can be found in each of our Hotel Descriptions. Room (s) confirmed will accommodate the number of passengers included in your reservation.

Pick up times and locations will be listed on your travel vouchers.
Even though a hotel pick up may not be included in the tour description (and therefore it is not included in our price), some Tour Operators may provide a "free/complimentary" hotel pick up, if the hotel is located close to their Meeting Point or in the historic center. Tour Operators do not provide us with a list of the hotels where they can or cannot offer this complimentary service. Depending on the country you are visiting Clients must contact our vendor 24 hours before their sightseeing tour to find out if a hotel pick up can be arranged. If for any reason passengers miss the free/complimentary pick up, or if for any reason the tour operator fails to show up, they are NOT entitled to a refund for the hotel transfer.
In most destinations, itineraries do NOT include transfers. Transfers are optional services you can add to your itinerary during the booking process. We offer shared and private transfers at most destinations. Some cities are serviced by several airports, therefore several transfer options will be offered.

All airline tickets are non-refundable once ticketed.
In general, airlines allow changes as long as the original air reservation has been cancelled prior to departure. Some airlines require 24 hours to cancel the original schedule to be able to process a change on their tickets. Some airlines require that you select a new travel date and exchange tickets before the original travel date. Some airlines allow you to use tickets for a future exchange up to one year from the original ticketed date, provided the air reservation is cancelled prior to departure. Some airlines do not allow any changes at all, not even paying a fee. Some tickets are not re-routable.
When changes are permitted, all segments in ticket status must show as OPEN to process an exchange.
Airline change fees apply according to the airline fare rules plus any fare difference that may increase. Change fees vary between airlines. Fare rules may vary within one airline.
Name changes are not allowed. You cannot exchange a ticket from one airline to another. Trip Corner.com does not control the fees set by the airline and have no authority to waive them.
If your trip has already started, you may contact the airline directly to make changes to your reservation. The airline will provide you with instructions on exchanging your original ticket when you confirm your new itinerary.
As a general reference, airlines penalties for changes start from $250 and up, depending on the carrier.
The closer to your departure date that you change, the more likely that there will be higher penalties. Hotel penalties vary between properties. Each property and each hotel supplier may establish different conditions for changes.
For multiple room reservations, we may use 2 or more suppliers. In those cases, each supplier may apply different change penalties for the same property. Note that, depending on the season, some hotel reservations may not be changeable at all (fairs, conventions, special events, Holidays, New Years, Christmas, etc). However, passengers must agree to the new price IN WRITING (by e-mail) before we process any hotel changes. We do NOT accept approvals on the phone. Any refunds (and penalties) resulting to the change will not be known to us for at least three business days by the supplier. Therefore, we will not be able to apply any monies towards your changes.
e. Sightseeing tours and Transfers
The closer to your departure date that you change, the more likely there will be higher penalties. Changing/Cancelling within 10 days may result in non refundable tours or transfers.
11. Air Schedule Changes (Involuntary)
Involuntary changes or cancellations to flight numbers, flight times or flight dates are called "schedule changes".
These are changes created by the airlines due to reorganization of their flight itineraries and/or change of equipment.
Trip Corner.com is not responsible for airlines schedule changes. The airline has the right to adjust/change and cancel flights up to the day of departure.
We are not responsible for any misconnections that the airlines might cause. We are not liable for cancelled flights, flights that are missed or flights with misconnection due to any airline scheduled changes. We are not able to compensate for hotel overnights if such may occur due to an airline schedule change.
Trip Corner.com may assist you informing of schedule changes, but it is ultimately your responsibility to coordinate with the airline directly any changes that might affect your travel. In a gesture of good will and in lieu of your satisfaction, Trip Corner.com will act as an agent between you and the airline in order to assist you in fixing some schedule changes.
If the airline is providing a full refund due to major schedule change; you will be responsible for the purchase of the new ticket with another carrier. Money transfer from airline to another is not allowed. Airline refunds may take between 6-8 weeks.
A cancellation is defined as the voluntary termination of an entire trip and is requested BEFORE the original travel date. We must receive cancellation notices in writing. Verbal cancellations are not accepted. Cancellations cannot be made online. Please open this link www.tripcorner.com/requests and fill in your information.
Trip Corner.com cancellation fee:
We do not charge cancellation fees of our own, only those the suppliers apply to your booking.
Each supplier has its own conditions and penalties for cancellations. Supplier's conditions are subject to change without previous notice' therefore we can only explain in a general way some of those penalties, as follows:
All Airline Tickets are non-refundable. Changes will be permitted as long as the reservation has been canceled 48 hours prior to departure (see changes for more information).
Exceptions: Due to Death or Medical - If the airline rules permit to request a refund it is up to the airline to evaluate your case and process a Full and/or Partial refund in the event of a Death or Medical related reason. The airline will require proof such as a death certificate, military deployment letter and/or a medical certificate. Reservations must be cancelled prior to ticketed departure date in order to request a refund to airlines.
A "No Show" is considered no notification to cancel or change prior to check-in time. “No Show” tickets do not have any value.
If there is a need to cancel one direction, we must cancel both directions. Should the cancellation occur before departure as needed, a request for a refund will be made by Trip Corner on your behalf to the airline. If required to issue new ticket, you will be liable for the fare differences and rebooking fee as per the airlines rule.
Hotels have different cancellation penalties according to the dates of stay at hotel and others. For example, stricter cancellation penalties are imposed during high season dates such as peak winter, peak summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc., special events, etc.
e. Sightseeing tours and Transfers
The closer to your departure date that you cancel, the more likely there will be higher penalties. Canceling within 10 days may result in non refundable tours or transfers. The cancellation fee will depend on the terms of the provider of the cancelled tour.
13. Dispute Resolution, Complaints And Refunds
Complaints or disputes will be handled on a case by case basis. Applications for refunds, if permitted, must be made in writing within 30 days of your scheduled return and must be accompanied by appropriate documentation evidencing amounts to be refunded. Please submit your request at www.tripcorner.com/requests. In certain situations, refunds cannot be issued until receiving appropriate verification and approval from our vendors. This process can be lengthy. A resolution can sometimes take between 30 and 60 days.
We will not refund any money due to passengers arriving late for check-in or meeting times for transfers or activities. Passengers should plan to check in 3 hours prior international flight times and 2 hours prior regional flight times.
