Amendments and Cancellation Fees:
All airlines changes and cancellations can be made directly with the respective airline or through Select World Travel.
We charge a minimum cancellation fee of AUD $330.00 ($300.00+GST) per person for International departures which will be in addition to any charges made by the airline, which in some cases can be the loss of the full amount you have paid.
For Jetstar or any other Low Cost Airline changes, clients must contact the airlines directly.
We charge an amendment fee of $165 + GST on International departures for each change to a confirmed booking; this is in addition to any fees charged by the airline.
Refunds of monies can take a minimum 12 weeks to obtain from the airline.
Please note that many airlines treat passenger name changes and itinerary alterations as a FULL CANCELLATION and as such these changes can incur full cancellation charges.
All travel airlines charge amendment and cancellation fees. In many cases, cancellation costs may be claimed against your insurance policy, and accordingly, travel insurance is strongly recommended.
Select World Travel will offer you the opportunity to purchase comprehensive Travel Insurance at competitive prices. If you book with Select World Travel and choose not to take out travel insurance, Select World Travel will not be responsible for paying any extra costs or expenses you may incur. Travel Insurance may provide cover when the premium is paid and the policy issued, and so should be taken out as soon as payment is made for maximum protection.
