Airline reservations and ticketing worldwide

We will help book your reservation(s)* and send you an itinerary by e-mail or fax and ask for your approval. Once approved, you are subject to the cancellation and change penalties.  You are responsible for knowing your correct name as it appears on your passport.  Name changes on tickets are not allowed by the airlines.

We are happy to record your frequent membership number in your air, car or hotel reservation.  We do not search flights, book reservations or ticket frequent flyer award tickets or upgrades using miles.  But, we can refer you to web-based resources that you could utilize yourselves.
