  • Are flight reservations required for visa applications?
    Yes, flight reservations are required for most popular tourist visas, such as the Schengen visa. Please check the relevant embassy's website to verify this information. Please note: These are flight reservations, not actual tickets. Travelers will have to buy airline tickets separately - preferably once the visa application has been approved - as is recommended by embassies and consulates. Also note: Please refer to the embassy's website to see whether you even require a visa.
  • Can I see a sample reservation?
    Of course. You can view sample reservations here.
  • Are these flight reservations real and verifiable?
    Yes. Each reservation comes with an airline reservation number (also know as PNR), and is created by a registered travel agent. You can verify your flight reservation through the airline's website. Some airlines systems do not display external bookings made with GDS. In such cases, you can use verification sites such as Travelport ViewTrip.
  • What is the validity of flight reservations?
    Reservations are a temporary hold, and can only be allowed for a limited time by airlines, as preference is given to final sales. The period of validity can vary depending on airline policy, proximity to departure, and flight capacity among other factors. It is fairly common for a reservation to expire during visa processing. We recommend getting a reservation made close to submission, not more than 1-2 days in advance. Read more

You can choose to receive your order on a later date if your visa interview is more than 1-2 days out. There is an option to pick delayed delivery on our order form. Your reservation will be delivered on the date of your choosing.
  • I want to place my order now, but would like to receive the reservation on a later date. Is that possible?"

Destination 3. Spellings 4. Itinerary renewal due to changes in submission date - once per order Changes not allowed: 1. New passenger name 2. Addtional flight legs above package allowance 3. Multiple itinerary renewals. Since the validity of reservations is limited, we recommend getting one made close to submission. Renewing a reservation due to differences in submission date will count as one change.
  • Do I need to cancel the reservation once my visa is approved? Are there any cancelation charges?
    No, you do not need to worry about canceling the reservation. We will not charge you any cancelation fees.
  • What is your refund policy?
    We accept cancelations and provide full refunds BEFORE an order has been delivered. Once an order has been delivered, we cannot accept cancelations or provide refunds.
  • Do you store my credit card information? Is payment processing secure?
    We do not store any information other than your reservation details. All payments are processed through renowned third-party payment gateways like Square and PayPal.
  • Why can't you sell reservations to residents of California, Hawaii, Florida and Iowa?"
    Some states have seller of travel laws that require agencies to follow registration procedures with their state. We are working on fulfilling those conditions with each state.
  • If I don't want to use your service, what are my options?
    You can buy an actual flight ticket for your visa application. However, if the flight is nonrefundable, it's a risk in case the visa application is delayed or doesn't go through. We make this process easier for our customers by providing temporary flight and hotel reservations for a low fee.
