  • We do not sell flights only.

International and Regional Flights

Some fares will not accrue miles. Our site may offer you the lowest deal available, but in some extreme cases the system might generate an unusual itinerary. Such as switching of one airport to another or changing airlines between connections. With these particular itineraries we strongly recommend that you have a minimum of 4 hours to make your connection time. If you are willing to accept the itinerary as shown then you will be solely responsible for any flight schedule changes given by the airline, misconnections, or any other event that might affect your itinerary. It is your responsibility to reconfirm your flights directly with the airlines at least 72 hours prior to your departure date (outbound and inbound). It is also your responsibility to verify luggage allowance with each airline. Please note your itinerary may include two or more airlines, and the luggage allowed on each flight may differ from one air company to another. Our site makes random seats assignments for your flights. TripWitz does not control seat numbers availability on a plane. Seat numbers are released by airlines reservations system so we can block them on your behalf. Some airlines block their availability of seat numbers for certain flights, and they reserve the right to offer such seats. When booking a child under the age of 2 years old they WILL NOT get a seat rather it will be considered a lap baby.

Airlines occasionally create overbooked conditions. TripWitz cannot be held responsible for these situations and will not refund moneys for such situations since they are beyond our control. Passengers need to present and resolve their compensation issues to the airline directly at the time the situation arises. We will not refund any money due to passengers arriving late for check-in. Passengers should plan to check in 3 hours prior international flight times and 2 hours prior regional flight times. Passengers are responsible for verifying their air itineraries with the airline 24 hours before departure. We will not refund moneys for missed flights due to airline schedule changes.

The airlines reserve the right to make changes to equipment, schedules, carriers and pre-assigned seats at any time. TripWitz cannot be responsible for airline flight schedule changes or cancellations. Advance seat assignments are issued by the airline and are subject to change at check-in.

Your vacation package may include discounted Non-Refundable Airline Tickets. Please check with your TripWitz Agent BEFORE booking.


Our system shows live availability for hotels. Our list of hotels available for a city changes according to your date selection. Any hotel special request will be submitted by TripWitz to the property but is never guaranteed and subject to availability at time of check in. Examples of special requests are: early check in, late check out, smoking rooms, non smoking rooms, bedding request (number of beds and/or size of beds), floor number, view (unless specified in reservation), etc. If a non refundable property is booked during the booking process the client is responsible for the TOTAL price of the non refundable property that has been reserved.

For further assistance with hotels selections, you may contact our customer service representatives. All hotel descriptions reflect the most updated information provided by the property at time of printing. TripWitz cannot be held responsible for the condition of accommodations. There may be charges applicable for some amenities listed in these descriptions as free, and availability may vary by season. In these instances, TripWitz is not responsible for any charges incurred by the traveler in utilizing such amenities and client agrees not to make TripWitz responsible for the availability and/or accessibility of any and all facilities and services at time of stay. Client will notify any dissatisfaction with rooms or hotel facilities with the hotel's management during the passenger's stay and will not make TripWitz responsible for the dissatisfaction. Hotels, at times, just like airlines, create overbooking conditions. In overbooking cases, compensation and arranging accommodations in another hotel is the responsibility of the hotel and passengers must negotiate all compensation with the hotel during the stay and not make TripWitz responsible for any financial compensation due to the overbooking situation. TripWitz is not responsible for any changes initiated by the passenger after departure. Our prices do not include additional expenses such as laundry, parking, alcoholic beverages (except when included), excess baggage charges, baggage insurance, meals (except as indicated in itineraries), items of a personal nature, tips and gratuities of any kind. We do not accept hotel points to pay for accommodations. In the same way, clients will NOT accumulate points with their hotel programs when booking thru TripWitz. We will not refund monies for dissatisfaction with the conditions of a property, its rooms, facilities or services. Some hotels request that we wait to submit guest names until 7 days prior to check in. In such a case, your hotel room is reserved, but your name is not yet on file with the hotel.

Car Rentals

The cost of an IDL is usually around US$ 20 - US$ 30 and can be purchased at your local AAA office or your local DMV. An IDL is a translation booklet that is carried with your government issued drivers license when driving outside of the US. It is intended for the foreign officials to be able to read your actual state issued drivers license. IDL's are typically translated into French, Spanish, English, Italian, Russian, Arabic, German, Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese. Rental period assumes one day equals 24 hours. A one day overtime will be charged if customer booked time exceeds used time by over an hour.
