A mission trip group airfare agreement is a great way to begin planning for your 2018 trips.  You don’t have to have an exact headcount, any names or full payment yet – simply a group airfare deposit (which is normally about $100pp.)  We have several dozen clients already booked for 2018. As a reminder:

GROUP AIRFARE:

  • Secure up to 11 months in advance without names
  • Team size must be a minimum of 10 or more travelers
  • Maximum flexibility and convenience in planning
  • Hold confirmed seats with a small deposit of ~$100/person at a specially negotiated price*
  • Final headcount not due until ~90 days prior to departure minimal or no deposit (plus ability to further reduce)*
  • Final passport names + final balance due ~45 days prior to departure
  • Ability to apply your deposit toward final payment, no need to wait for the airline to refund your deposit, which could be up to 8 weeks after your team’s departure
  • Ability for name changes or canceled tickets even after full purchase*
  • Airlines allow for limited group space on flights. It is highly recommended to secure your flight plans as soon as you are able.  We’re busy securing dozens of group contracts for our clients this month already.

*Each airline has different rules.

The start of each year is when the floodgates open and thousands of groups get booked so ACT NOW!  Don’t risk on your preferred dates selling out or rising drastically in price as you wait.
