For voluntary exchanges, refunds, and name corrections, Centrav charges $50 per person in addition to any airlines fees. For involuntary refunds, Centrav charges a $25 fee per person.
No charge for voids. And, there is no charge for schedule change reissues unless you request an itinerary that is outside the parameters offered by the airline. Then it becomes a voluntary change ($50 per person plus airline fees).
Some airfares show a “Markup Limit”. This does NOT mean your profit is limited. If you want to charge more than the displayed Markup Limit you have two options:
1.) Simply charge more markup than the displayed limit. Your client will pay an additional 3.5% fee on the entire sale price. The fee will not be taken out of your profit.
2.) Charge the full Markup Limit allowed and also charge a separate service fee. Be aware that the service fee will show as a separate charge on their credit card statement.
1.) Try using the Customized Routing tool to force it VIA a certain gateway.
2.) Or click the “Edit” button next an itinerary that is similar to what you want, then change it.
3.) Or use the Trip Builder to select specific flights
4.) Or call our Reservations support center at 800-874-2033.
Rules for booking Unaccompanied Minors (UNM) vary with each airline. Generally, you would set up a booking at Centrav.com as though the child was an adult. Before applying payment, call the airline and have them look at the PNR and notate it for a UNM and verify it qualifies for their UNM program. There is usually a fee that you pay directly to the airline. Also, verify that the flight accepts UNM. Many airlines require that the UNM be on a nonstop flight. If that is the case, verify that there are no HIDDEN STOPS on the flight.
Commission checks are sent out within 2 weeks of ticketing.
Yes. Select the Multi City option on the general search page. For example: Your client can fly into Madrid and return from Paris.
Many airlines charge extra for a seat assignment. Some airlines do not allow pre-assigned seats.
Your options to get seat assignments include:
a.) Visit My Bookings, then click View next to your booking. If there is a red link within the itinerary that says “view itinerary on airline’s website” you can follow that and do seat assignments there.
b.) Go to the airline website using the airline reference number (found in the itinerary).
c.) CONTACT US! We would be happy to assign seats for your client. Be aware that airlines do not always release a seat map. We will certainly book the seats if we can. There are many cases where the airlines charge a fee for seats and we cannot apply your CC to the airline website on your behalf. You would need to do those yourself.
Click on your name at the top right of Centrav.com, then click “My Profile”. Click “Upload a File” in the lower right. You can find your logo on your computer and place it. Your logo will now appear on all of your Client Receipts.
If your profit went into the Markup box it will be included with the airfare as one charge. If your profit went into the SERVICE FEE box it will show as a separate charge.
You can often get a better fare by breaking these up into two or more bookings. For example; instead of booking CHI-HKG-SHA-SGN-BJS-TPE-CHI all in one itinerary, try booking CHI to HKG and back from TPE to get a discounted consolidator fare. Then book your intra-Asia flights separately because those will all be published fares.
But really, just give us a call. Our agents understand this game very well and can help you find the best combo quickly!
Involuntary reissues are handled in date order of departure. After you receive the new reissued e-ticket, contact the airlines to have seat assignments re-assigned
