Refund and Cancellation Policy

On all flight ticket purchased online, LafeTravel charges an online booking service fee of up to $39 USD per person for Domestic Travel, and up to $49 USD per person for International Travel, for all passenger types. However, in many cases, we don’t charge a service fee at all. When making a reservation online, the total amount displayed is inclusive of LafeTravel’s service fee. If you continue with your reservation, this total amount may be charged to the credit card provided to LafeTravel at the time of your booking. In the event airfares increase between the time of your reservation request and the time we issue the tickets (typically within 4-5 business hours), LafeTravel will contact you and seek your authorization for any resulting changes in price. LafeTravel will never charge your credit card an amount greater than what you accepted and authorized us to charge.

Post Booking / Ticketing Service Fee

All post-booking/ticketing service fees are non-refundable and are subject to change without notice. Our fees are in addition to any airline and/or other supplier imposed fees and charges.

Bank And Credit Card Fee

Some banks and credit card companies charge a fee for international transactions. They will appear on your credit or bank card statement as a foreign or international transaction fee. For example, if you make a travel reservation through our website from outside the United States using a U.S. credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and may charge you a fee for the conversion. The amount of the charge appearing on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and different than the purchase amount shown on the billing summary page for the reservation.In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the bank that issued your credit card is located outside the United States. Booking international travel through our website may be considered an international transaction by the bank or credit card company since LafeTravel may pass your payment on to an international travel supplier. Your bank or credit card company determines the currency exchange rate and the amount of the foreign transaction fee on the day it processes the transaction. Please contact your bank or credit card company should you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your transaction.

Credit Card Disputes And "Chargebacks"

If you have any questions or concerns regarding a charge completed to your credit card in conjunction with the airline ticket charge, any LafeTravel processing charge or fare adjustment we ask that you contact us directly at [email protected] prior to disputing the charge(s) with your credit card company. At that time LafeTravel will work with you in reviewing any concerns. By accepting the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you agree to be liable for any and all credit card payments and you agree not to dispute the charges (including processing fees, airline ticket charge or fare adjustment) after the purchase has been made and your tickets and/or other products have been delivered by email confirmation. In some instances, customers frivolously dispute one of the credit card charges even though the charges are legitimate. By agreeing to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, the customer assumes the burden of proof if he/she wishes to contest a charge on a credit card for travel service purchased, or for any other fees, taxes or services as outlined to the customer during the booking process. The customer also agrees that the bank will not be permitted to make a chargeback against "LafeTravel", a consolidator or an airline, until LafeTravel and the bank discuss the charges and the burden of proof is met. The customer also agrees not to initiate a chargeback if LafeTravel Marketing has abided by the terms and conditions outlined in this document (which a customer agrees at checkout / payment during the booking process).

In the event a customer initiates any unjustified, fraudulent or frivolous chargeback, or creates a chargeback for an airline ticket that the airline would normally not refund according to its own policies and regulations associated with the fare (e.g., non-refundable ticket), the customer agrees to be liable in full for a) the total reservation amount, b) any legal and collection costs incurred by us in recovering the charges as well as c) a $250 administrative/accounting penalty for the inconvenience.

In the event a chargeback is opened on a reservation which is not currently flown, LafeTravel and/or the airline have the right to cancel all unused segments for the reservation in question, without notice, and the customer will be liable for the full cost of the airline ticket purchased, LafeTravel processing fees or fare adjustment amount(s) for the reservation.


Once purchased, most tickets are non refundable and non transferable. All service fee are non refundable. Name changes are not permitted. For any changes to dates or routing, please call our Customer Service or write to us at [email protected]. These changes may have airline penalty, difference in fare and our service fee. Some flights may be completely NON CHANGEABLE even with an airline penalty. Price does not include baggage and carry on bag fee. Your credit card may be billed in multiple charges totaling the above amount and may be subject to additional currency exchange fee from your bank or credit card company.
