United State Travel does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, any bookings or reservations made or confirmed to you in the event that the original itinerary has been changed by the supplier pursuant to customer's request or supplier's schedule changes.

Please contact our call center to determine the total cost of exchanging your ticket. (These fees are subject to change without notice, the latest updated fees will be provided by the agent on the call.)
CANCELATIONS AND MODIFICATIONS
All airline tickets are 100% non-refundable.
MULTIPLE AIRLINE ITINERARIES
If your Itinerary consists of more than one airline, therefore two separate fare rules will be used, different rules and policies (for example, for baggage fees, change fees, and refunds) may apply in each direction or for each airline. For changes, refunds, exchanges, each airline may charge separately. In case of Schedule change or cancellations: if your initial flight is cancelled or the schedule is changed by either you or the airline, the other airline with which you booked your return flight is not obligated to issue a refund or change your itinerary. You are responsible for complying with each airline's terms and conditions, which may differ (for example, check-in times and limits on baggage size/weight). You may want to print both of your e-ticket confirmations before starting travel, in case you are asked for proof of return tickets.
CANCEL AND REFUND
All bookings are not guaranteed until ticketed. At times, even after the confirmation of a reservation, the fare may change as revised by the supplier. We will notify you of any fare changes and we do not assume any responsibility - financial or otherwise for any such fare changes made by the supplier. We will notify you of the new fare and at that point you may either cancel or still purchase the product or service at the new cost. You have the right to cancel the booking at no cost to you if there is a fare increase before ticketing and prior to your card being charged; you will not be charged any fees for cancelling such a booking.
PAYMENT ACCEPTANCE POLICY
We accept credit cards and debit cards issued in US, Canada and India. We also accept AE/AP billing addresses. Airfares are guaranteed only upon ticketing, and not upon submission of payment. If your credit card payment is not processed for any reason, we will notify you within 24 hours. If there is a fare change while processing your transaction, you will be notified and you have the right to decline this transaction and you will not be charged. We provide a safe and secure credit card transaction guarantee, as stated above in these Terms & Conditions. All hotel, car rental and tour/activity bookings are only confirmed upon delivery of complete confirmation details to the email you provided with your reservation. In some cases, pre-payment may be required to receive confirmation. When certain transactions are determined to be high risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it's safe to process them. In order to establish the validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
Most tickets are electronic (e-Tickets), however with certain itineraries where an e-Ticket is not available a paper ticket will be issued.
CREDIT CARD DECLINES
If your credit card declines at the time of processing your transaction, we will make all efforts to notify you by email within 72 hours. The transaction will not be processed if your credit card has been declined. The fare and any other booking details are not guaranteed. If there is a fare change you have a right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. There will be no service fees charged for this.
BAGGAGE POLICY AND FEES
If you have excess baggage, you will have to pay any excess baggage fee assessed by each airline. Most airlines now charge baggage fees even for the first bag checked-in; we recommend traveling light to reduce these costs. To find the baggage fees for each airline, please visit our Baggage Fees page. Baggage fees range from $15 up to $200 or more depending on the size and weight of the bag and is per checked bag. These fees are to be paid directly to airline upon using such service. We make an effort to keep the baggage fees table updated but we recommend you contact the airline directly for the latest fees on check baggage and policy as it relates to baggage.
OVERBOOKING OF FLIGHTS
Airline flights may be overbooked, and there is a slight chance that a seat will not be available on a flight for which a person has a confirmed reservation. If the flight is overbooked, no one will be denied a seat until airline personnel first ask for volunteers willing to give up their reservation in exchange for compensation of the airline's choosing. If there are not enough volunteers, the airline may deny boarding to other persons in accordance with its particular boarding priority. With few exceptions, including failure to comply with the carrier's check-in deadline (which are available upon request from the air carrier), persons denied boarding involuntarily are entitled to compensation from the airline. The complete rules for the payment of compensation and each airline's boarding priorities are available at all airport ticket counters and boarding locations. Some airlines do not apply these consumer protections to travel from some foreign countries, although other consumer protections may be available. Check with the airline or call us for details.
VISA AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
All customers are advised to verify travel documents (transit visa/entry visa) for the country through which they are transiting and/or entering. Reliable information regarding international travel can be found at www.travel.state.gov and also with the consulate/embassy of the country(s) you are visiting or transiting through. United State Travel will not be responsible if proper travel documents are not available and you are denied entry or transit into a Country.

Traveler understands that United State Travel accepts no responsibility for determining passenger's eligibility to enter or transit through any specific country.
