We understand that the ever-changing travel restrictions may make you unsure about what date to change your ticket to, so we’ve got this covered. You may even decide to change your destination, or change the passenger names if you would like someone else to benefit from your booking, and that’s ok too.

We would like to provide even more peace of mind and flexibility with your travel plans, and have all the up to date information on our flexible no change fees policy for you here
