Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I fly from?
We can book your international departure flights from anywhere in the world. We're able to book international flights if you're making your tour booking with our London or Brisbane offices. If you are departing from South Africa, we recommend booking your flights independently on a flight comparison website, such as Skyscanner or Kayak, or with your local travel agent.
Can I make meal and seat requests?
If you require a particular meal type or would like to request a particular seat, let us know at time of booking and we'll pass on your requests to the airline. Please note that some seat requests incur a surcharge while on some short haul flights (ie., from the UK to one of our European destinations), meal options may be limited. Once your flight is booked, you'll be able to reserve seats on the airline's website.
When should I book my flights?
Airlines release their flight schedules and prices 10 months in advance so the earlier you can book the better, as more often than not you'll find cheaper seats and greater availability. Though airlines do have sales throughout the year so if you're lucky, you can pick up a deal closer to the time of departure. We recommend holding off booking your international flights until your tour is confirmed.
Which airlines can I book?
We can book any scheduled airline at their published rate, but have wholesale contracts with a selection of airlines at competitive rates and often with more flexible conditions than standard fares – call us and we will give you the best option available to us. If you are considering flying with a low-cost airline, we recommend booking directly with the airline.
Can I upgrade my flights?
We'll always quote on economy class fares as it's how the majority of our travellers wish to fly but if you'd prefer to fly premium economy or business, we can certainly assist. Just let us know at the time of booking which cabin class you prefer and we'll look for the best fares.
