Each passenger is required to present official documents, such as a passport or identity card. Some travelers are obligated to have a visa/transit visa or ESTA depending on the trip origin and destination. Passengers can learn which travel documents are required by contacting the country’s Embassy. Furthermore, some destinations require travelers’ passports’ to have a minimum 6 months validity. It is the passenger's responsibility to have the necessary documents for travelling.

The refund process usually takes up to 15 working days following the cancellation date. Due to bank procedures, it may take up to 7-10 additional days before appearing on your bank statement.

Regulations and procedures for transporting pets in the cabin and luggage storage areas of the aircraft vary depending on the airline and destination. For more information, Tripsta recommends you contact either the airline operating your flight or Tripsta, before proceeding with a booking.

Passengers requiring assistance must arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to their departure time and proceed directly to the designated points for disabled passengers and passengers with reduced mobility (as indicated at check-in).
Children under the age of 5 years must be accompanied by a passenger (usually required to be older than 15 years), to travel. Tickets can only be issued for unaccompanied children via phone. Every airline follows a different policy regarding unaccompanied children. Tripsta highly recommends that you contact the airline before booking the flight. Many airlines provide an escort service for children, but the cost and requirements of such service are regulated by each airline.
No, the tickets you tried to book have not been confirmed due to a temporary technical issue that took place in the airline(s) system during the booking procedure. This resulted in a failed booking, while a pre-authorization of the corresponding amount had already taken place.
