You may search flights, check flight information, and confirm your flight reservation online or seek assistance regarding the same from our customer service expert(s). We will be glad to help you. In the course of your travel reservation, you need to provide us the name and address details of passenger(s) along with a valid proof of identity (photo ID issued by any government authority of the residential territory of the individual traveler) of passengers, and authorize us to charge the payment against a legitimate debit/credit card(s).
myflightsbuddy expects and assumes that you are providing information correct to the best of your knowledge. In no situations, will any type of name changes be accepted by myflightsbuddy or the concerned airlines. We assume that you are using your own credit or debit card. In case, you are not the card holder, you should have authorization from the card holder to use their credit or debit card. If a booking is confirmed, we will debit payment from your card and send you a confirmation invoice. If you notice any error on the booking receipt/ticket you must report it on the same day.
If any fluctuation in ticket fares happens between the collection of card details and actual booking, the real-time fares are applied, and the corresponding amount is debited from the card. An email confirmation is also sent to you from our end regarding the airfare, or taxes, if any.
myflightsbuddy promises you a value-for-money trip. We provide the most competitive price on flight bookings in any category and to any destinations. In exceptional cases, if you find a lower rate either on myflightsbuddy, or on another US-based online booking website for the same itinerary within 24 hours of booking, you have the authority to make a cancellation request and ask for a full refund. However, you will need to provide documentation to myflightsbuddy that proves all the elements of the lower rate including the departure and arrival dates, airlines, class and any other material conditions that are the same as the itinerary you booked with us and is available for booking online.
myflightsbuddy may release promo codes to drive customer acquisition and reward the loyal customers. These promo codes come with a limited validity and, are applicable or limited flights. Use your promo code before it gets expired to redeem your flight booking discount. To stay informed about our available promo codes, sign up for our newsletter/blog. Here are the guidelines regarding the usage of the promotional offers.
We accept all popular credit and debit cards issued by all major or minor banks within North America or in any other country. If you think that your card has been overcharged, please contact our travel consultant on the toll free number 1-844-869-5222. Please note airfares are guaranteed once the ticket is issued, and not upon submission of payment. If your payment is not processed for any reason, we will inform you within twenty four hours.
You have the flexibility to make the payment through one or more than one cards. However, opting for multiple card payment comes at an additional 4% fee on the total of the ticket cost. If any given credit or debit card is not accepted by the airline, you will be notified by email or call from one of our representatives.
To ensure the protection of your billing and other sensitive financial details against any fraudulent activity, we cross-examine the details with the card issuing authority or bank before processing the payment. In case, we are unable to verify the details with financial institutions because of reasons beyond our control, we may ask for a valid copy of driver license or passport along with a copy of credit or debit card from the authorized cardholder. It’s applicable for Visa, Master, Discover, AmericanExpress or any other cards.
myflightsbuddy endeavors to inform you of your credit card payment decline within 72 hours. The credit card declining results in the transaction failure. We do not guarantee stability of the fares or the booking confirmation with the future booking and payment attempts.
An Infant is a traveler who should be under two years of age throughout the travel. If an infant turns two years of age during the travel he/she would not be eligible for infant fare and the airline will consider him or her as a child, and will act accordingly. With one adult, only one infant is allowed on the adult’s lap. If there are two infants with one adult then a second infant ticket will be booked under the applicable child fare.
Tickets cannot be sold to unaccompanied minors aged 18 or below. Each and every airline has its own policies for children travelling alone. Please confirm with the airline directly for the minor age requirements. Some airlines allow unaccompanied minors to travel on non-stop flights only. Some airlines do not allow minors to travel while not accompanied by an adult.
If you are heading to a destination abroad, make sure you meet the foreign entry requirements. myflightsbuddy has no information related to foreign entry needs or travel documents. myflightsbuddy takes no responsibility if you are denied entry onto a flight or into a country due to your failure to hold a valid passport, visa, or travel documents. You shall consult the relevant embassy or consulate for this information.
myflightsbuddy adopts a flexible policy in the interests of its customers; however, we do have some limitations. We are bound to go by the guidelines of the respective airline in this regard. Hence, we recommend you to take stock of the itinerary services offered by the airline before planning your trip, and provide our employees with the correct information at the time of ticket booking.
The airline might impose a fee for making changes to the purchased ticket(s). You agree to compensate myflightsbuddy for any such applicable charges while initiating any change request which is feasible as per your airline.
Most of the airfares are 100% non-refundable. However, in certain cases, where airlines have a cancel and exchange policy, myflightsbuddy collaborates with the concerned airlines to help you receive a credit limit towards your future ticket booking with us. The calculation of credit limit is done as per the terms and conditions of the airlines and is beyond our control. The credit limit has a definite validity or timeline and it must be utilized within that period. Prior to cancellation, discuss the same with your customer service official to learn about other applicable cancellation protocols. Exercise your cancellation right, wherever it’s permissible, by calling on our toll-free number before the scheduled departure of your airlines. myflightsbuddy doesn’t guarantee any cancellation. While booking an airline ticket using the credit received against your cancellation, it’s important to note that when the cost of the current ticket is higher than the credit available, then you are required to pay the fare difference along with the applicable airline penalties and applicable myflightsbuddy service fee. However, in case it’s lower than that the rest of the balance is forfeited.
Every airline has its own baggage policy. A few airlines allow passengers to carry a bag or two under their permissible limit (based on particular weight and dimension). The approximate baggage fee range is from $15 up to $200 per checked bag. For your convenience, we have provided here a Baggage Fees page that reads the baggage policy and charges with different airlines and travel types. We endeavor to keep the page updated, however, it’s your responsibility to confirm the terms with your airlines before boarding your flight. Airlines have a definite time frame to accept request for adding additional baggage to a travel. Hence, you should check the details with the airline to avoid any inconvenience. We recommend traveling light to reduce these costs.
The cancellation and refund of the travel insurance policy associated with your travel ticket is subject to the terms and conditions of the respective insurance service provider. We don’t have any control over it. However, as your travel agent, we stand by you and provide all sorts of assistance that you may need.
You may cancel a booking without penalty, for 24 hours after the reservation is made, if the reservation was made one week or more prior to your flight’s departure date. You receive a full refund of the payment back into the same form of payment which was used originally. This refund reflects in your bank statement in 6 to 10 business days (it may vary depending upon the terms of the card issuer/financial institution).Newsletters

These Terms & Conditions and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, USA, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules. You agree that unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in writing or as otherwise described in the Mandatory Arbitration provision below, any Claims shall be brought in a court located in Orange County, the State of Florida, USA.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, and court review of an arbitration award is very limited. However, except as set forth below, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator should apply the Terms & Conditions as a court would.

AAA and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator approved by or otherwise affiliated with AAA; except that if the total amount in controversy is more than US$100,000, the defendant may request a panel of three arbitrators; (b) the party initiating the arbitration shall choose the form in which they would like the arbitration to be conducted: via telephone, online, solely based on written submissions, or at an in-person hearing; (c) notwithstanding the foregoing, if either party requests an in-person hearing: (i) the arbitrator shall decide whether a hearing is necessary or whether the arbitration should proceed via telephone, online or solely based on written submissions, (ii) if the arbitrator deems that a hearing is necessary, the hearing shall occur at a mutually agreed upon location, or, if the parties are unable to agree on a location, at a location that is selected by the arbitrator and is reasonably convenient to all parties, and (iii) either party may elect to participate in an in-person hearing by phone, unless the arbitrator decides otherwise; (d) the arbitrator may not award any: (i) incidental, indirect or consequential damages, including damages for lost profits, or (ii) punitive or exemplary damages, except where permitted by statute, and the parties waive any right to recover any such damages described in subparagraphs (d)(i) and (d)(ii); (e) the arbitrator may award injunctive or declaratory relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim; and (f) unless otherwise mutually agreed by the partiesin writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
The arbitrator may not decide issues relating to arbitrability and the scope or enforceability of this Mandatory Arbitration provision, which shall be only for a court of competent jurisdiction to decide. Judgment on the award issued by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This Mandatory Arbitration provision shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
