How long does this promotion last?

The promotion lasts as long as your voucher is valid, so there is no need to rush a decision now.

Why is my voucher not equal in value to my receipt from my travel agent?

If you bought your tickets through a third party and purchased additional products they provide, you'll have to contact those parties directly for refunds on those services.

Can I top up my purchase with cash?

Yes, you can. You have to pay for as much of the booking with your voucher as you can, the balance can then be topped up with Credit Card or Secure Instant Deposit payments.

Can my voucher be used across multiple bookings?

Yes, it can be used across multiple bookings. If you do not use the full value of your voucher for your first booking, you will have a positive credit balance to use for other future bookings.

What if my flight costs more than the value of my voucher?

If your flight costs more than the value of your voucher, the voucher amount will be deducted from the total, and the difference can be paid with any other available payment method.

Why are you charging a 45% cancellation fee on cash refunds?

Because your ticket was sold as non-refundable, we are legally permitted to charge a reasonable fee, and we calculate that fee-based on fixed costs the airline had to incur.

For how long is my Voucher Valid?

Your voucher is valid for 12 months from the date of issue - that's to say that you need to spend it within 12 months, but you can purchase any available flights.

Can the voucher be used for anyone?

Yes, vouchers are entirely transferable, and anyone with the voucher number and PIN can use it - so keep those details safe.

What if I'm not happy with the cash alternative?

Our refund options have been carefully formulated in consultation with our legal team to ensure that we offer our customers the best possible options without incurring unfair financial damage against the company.

Of course, South African consumers have every right to contest any action taken by a company in these circumstances. If you wish to contest the options we've made available; you are most welcome to do so by contacting the South African Consumer Goods and Services Ombudsman. You can do so by visiting www.cgso.org.za.

Please note that no extensions to the validity of vouchers or promotional voucher offers will be granted as a result of protracted legal proceedings.
