- BOOKING PROCESS
For your convenience, our use of the following terms in these Terms & Conditions we will have the meaning below:
"Service Element" - Singular product or services listed on the Site that can be booked independently of any other service. (e.g.: car, hotel, flight).
"Travel Supplier" - Vendor of one or more Service Elements. (e.g.: hotels, car suppliers, airlines). TheFareHub does not act as principal but makes arrangements with third-party vendor Travel Suppliers for Service Elements, all as defined above.
"Booking / Reservation" - a negotiation process with the Travel Supplier carried out by you while using this site for the purpose of getting one or more service elements that may result in a contract with the Travel Supplier at the time we receive full payment and accept your offer.
In order to complete a Booking the following steps are taken to secure its validity:
When we place service elements on our site, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase. You do not make this offer until you press "Book" on the payment page (entitled "Review Trip Details and Book") of the site.
Once you have done so you have made TheFareHub an offer (which cannot be withdrawn if you change your mind) to purchase the relevant service element(s) from the relevant Travel Supplier(s) (your "Booking"). We are free to accept your offer on behalf of the relevant Travel Supplier or to reject it, based on our power to make final decisions.
The TheFareHub email confirmation is NOT the contractual acceptance of the Booking, but only an acknowledgement that we have received your offer. We will need to check the availability of the relevant service element(s).
If the relevant service element is available, your Booking will be processed. The contract pertaining to the relevant Booking is formed when payment in full has been received.
The contract between you and the relevant Travel Supplier will relate only to those service elements confirmed by email with ticket number(s) / pnr number(s) in case of air or reservation numbers in case of hotels, cars or other activities.
Until the contract is not formed between you and the Travel Supplier and the ticket has been issued and/or a reservation has been made and confirmed by the Travel Supplier the terms of your Booking (such as price, availability and/or dates of travel) are not guaranteed. Please note that once you have completed the Booking stage you can only cancel or change the details (such as names or destinations) of your Booking at our sole discretion and in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
These Booking processes will apply to any of our individual service element's Terms & Conditions set out below. The airline ticket Terms & Conditions, the hotel Terms & Conditions, the car rental Terms & Conditions, the attractions and services Terms & Conditions supplement any area not covered by the Booking process. We reserve the right to change the Booking process at any time, with changes automatically taking effect from the date such changes are posted on the site.
Government-issued photo ID is required at all times throughout the trip for security checks at airports, hotels and car rental locations and may be required for attractions and other products as considered necessary by the relevant Travel Suppliers.
In addition to the required government-issued ID as stated above, proof of citizenship (Passport) is required for international travel (for most countries outside of the United States). Please note that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that you meet the passport, visa, and/or health requirements of the countries you wish to visit and those that you transit (even if it is for a simple flight change). Many countries require that your passport should be valid for a minimum period from the date of arrival into that country. For any questions regarding what the applicable minimum period is and any other conditions or passport/visa requirements for travel, you should contact the corresponding local consulate of the countries to which you are travelling.
Neither TheFareHub nor its employees accept any responsibility, and you will not be entitled to any refunds whatsoever, if you are denied boarding, delayed or deported due to non-fulfillment of the above.
- Government entry/exit fees may apply, depending on your destination
- These are your only responsibility and will be added to your Booking charges
- All travelers on your Booking (if more than one passenger) must travel on the same itinerary. Individual passengers cannot be added to, and/or deleted from your Booking
TheFareHub reserves the right to correct errors in any advertised price and, if applicable, give you an option to either cancel the Booking or allow TheFareHub to collect an amount equal to any increase in price from your provided credit or debit card, prior to your departure.
- Each service element listed in your Booking is given by the respective Travel Supplier
- Frequent traveler points and/or miles may or may not be available for any part of your Booking. You must check this with the relevant Travel Supplier
Once you have made your Booking, you cannot transfer or change the name(s) or destination(s) listed in your Booking.

In the event the fare selected is not available an approval code may have been issued on your credit card. If the transaction is not completed the approval code may temporarily credit the amount from your bank account.

If any discrepancy is observed in the itinerary one must contact TheFareHub customer service agents within 4 hours from the time the booking was completed.
If you fail to contact us by phone within 4 hours of completing the booking, we will consider the booking you have made to be acceptable to you and we do not assume any liability thereafter for any mistake in your booking.
We always recommend saving the itinerary and reviewing it as soon as you receive it for a smooth travel experience.
- CANCEL AND REFUND
Most of our airline tickets, hotels, pre-paid car rentals, vacation packages and service fees are non-refundable after 24 hours of booking. All cancellations must be done over the phone only. We can accept refund requests only if the following conditions have been met:
- You have applied for a cancellation and refund with us and if the fare rules provide for cancellation and refunds;
- you are not a "no show" (most "no show" bookings are in-eligible for any waiver from suppliers for refund processing); and
- we are able to secure waivers from suppliers to process this requested cancellation and refund.
We are unable to provide a specific timeline for how long it may take for this requested refund to be processed. All refund requests are processed in a sequential format. Once you have provided our customer service agent with your cancellation request, we will then send you an email notification that your request has been received. This notification does not automatically qualify you for a refund. This only provides you with an acknowledgement of your request and you are provided a tracking cum reference number by the agent who takes your cancellation / refund request. Upon receipt of your request we will work with the suppliers such as airlines, hotels, car-rental companies to generate a waiver based on airline and other supplier rules and notify you of the supplier decision. Our service fees associated with the original travel reservation or booking are non-refundable. Please note that we are dependent on the suppliers for receiving the requested refunds. Once the refund has been approved by the supplier it may take additional time for this to appear on original mode of payment or as explained by the customer service representative. Generally, all suppliers will charge a penalty for refund. This entire process may take 60-90 days from receipt of your request to receiving credit on your statement. Apart from the airlines and other supplier’s refund penalties, TheFareHub will charge a post-ticketing services fee, as applicable. All refund fees are charged on per-passenger, per-ticket basis. These fees will only be assessed if a refund has been authorized by the supplier or a waiver has been received and when the airline/supplier rules permit such refunds. If such refund is not processed by the supplier, we will refund you our post-ticketing service fees applicable to your agent assisted refund request, but not our booking fees for the original travel reservation or booking.
