1. GDS Usage
Many airlines have introduces O&D controls to help manage inventory on flights. Whilst most agents abide by correct bookings practices, many do not and they bypass the rules, effectively "hacking" the system to book seats that are not available to legitimately book. This results in loss of revenue for the airline and in turn the airlines send us an ADM for the booking. If you are making a booking in your own GDS (e.g. Worldspan, Galileo, Amadeus or Sabre) or a GDS system provided by us, then queuing the booking over to us for issuing, you are responsible for the making sure the booking has been made legitimately. If you need any further clarifications or have any concerns over this you can contact and we will be happy to explain. If a booking is queued to us that an airline deem has been booked by abusing the system and the ticket is issued resulting in an ADM you will be responsible for the ADM and an invoice will be raised to your agency. By queuing a booking made by you to us for issuing you are agreeing to this in full. Also there are airlines which do not allow taking over sub agent’s bookings, we may deny to take over those booking for issuance as those booking will have to make in our GDS only.
Please remember that the person making the booking accepts ALL the booking Conditions and is liable for any amendment fees, late payments or cancellation charges that rise on behalf of ALL the passengers in their party. In addition they are also responsible for checking this and all future documentation and for advising us immediately if anything is missing or incorrect.

If this applies you will be advised when the booking is made.

If an extra “booking charge” applies, this would have been advised at the time of booking. All credit card payments are subject to a 2% charge.
