How do I travel with electronic ticket (e-ticket)?

The electronic ticket is particularly convenient since it confirms the purchase of a ticket without the need of any printed document. The airline with which you travel, stores all the details of the ticket in its central system of reservations. This means that you don' t have to show a printed ticket in order to get on the plane and you won't have to worry about forgetting or losing your ticket (since it is not the traditional paper ticket). Having an electronic ticket, allows you to go directly to the check-in counter holding your passport or identity card and a copy of the e-mail booking confirmation (the copy of the e-mail will the agent of the airline to locate your seat faster).

What is an e-ticket?

Electronic ticket or 'e-ticket' is a paperless ticketing system whereby the ticket is held in the airline's database. It contains all the information shown on a paper ticket, so we are not sending you the actual ticket via email but only the information you need at the check-in and it is stored as an electronic record in the airline's computer system. When the e-ticket has been issued, the passenger needs to print out their ticket showing the booking reference. At the departure airport, the passenger goes straight to the airline check-in desk.E-tickets cannot be lost or be used by anyone else, so they are safer than standard paper tickets.

Unaccompanied children

In case your children (2-11 years old) need to travel unaccompanied, we recommend you to contact us by phone. We cannot issue tickets for unaccompanied children via Asfartrip.com (online). Some general rules for unaccompanied children are the following ones:
Children older than 5 years old can usually travel unaccompanied on a direct flight or on a flight with correspondence (however they cannot fly with the last correspondence flight of the day). The exact age for which this policy applies, varies from airline to airline therefore we strongly recommend that you contact directly the specific airline in order to be further informed. A lot of airlines offer escort service (usually by a flight attendant) for minors travelling alone.
Children under 5 years old, cannot travel unless they are accompanied by an older passenger (who must be usually older than 15 years old). A lot of airlines may charge an extra fee for the children escort service. The airlines usually need to know who will receive the unaccompanied child and an identity card demonstration is required at the reception of the child. Possible unability of identification card demonstration may cause delay on the procedure, that is why we highly recommend you that you previously consult the specific requirements of each airline. In any case it is essential that you communicate with the airline before booking any ticket for an unaccompanied child.

Do I have enough connection time between my flights?

The minimum connecting time is the standard amount of time needed to make a connecting flight at a particular airport. This standard is determined by the air traffic conferences and varies according to the airport and the airline. The connection times we offer on our website are in accordance with these standards, so you don't have to worry about them.
In the event that your flight is delayed, causing you to miss your connecting flight, it is the airlines responsibility to rebook you on the next available flight. Should there not be other flights that day the airline should offer you accommodation. This is only valid if your journey was booked on one ticket.
Meals and transport should also be offered by the airline if the waiting period is long.

How much time prior to the flight departure should I be at the airport?

How early you need to check-in varies by airline, departure airport and destination. However, the following are general guidelines if you're checking-in baggage:
International Flights: check-in at least 3 hours before departure
European Flights: check-in at least 2 hours before departure
Domestic Flights (i.e. flights within the same country): check-in at least 90 minutes before departure We recommend that you check-in online where applicable to save yourself time.
You should aim to be in the departure hall in good time for boarding which usually begins 60 minutes prior to departure. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to complete all check-in formalities and security screening. Remember that airport security is extremely thorough and this can cause delays in reaching your desired boarding gate. Some airports are large enough where it takes anywhere between 15 - 20 minutes to reach the boarding gate.
Please keep in mind that you will need enough time until you pass the security controls especially during peak periods.

What kind of documents should I carry when I travel?

If you are a Schengen Zone citizen and you travel within Schengen Zone you just have to hold your identity card (your name should be written with Latin letters). While your id is enough for you to travel, passports are more common to use while travelling. If you travel outside Schengen Zone, you necessarily need your passport, while your ticket of return and visa may be essential also. We recommend you to consult the embassy of the country that you will visit, in order to be sure of which are the essential travel documents that you will need. Even if our travel consultant may inform you regarding the need of Visa issuing for a certain country, such reminder is not an obligation of ours.

You may choose to fly on your outbound flight and not use your return flight. However, this does not apply the other way around.

Please note that you will not get any money refunded for any parts of the ticket not used.

What happens if the airline changes its flights?

The airlines are sometimes forced to modify the itineraries, hours and number of their flights. In this case we will try to inform you for any changes before the date of departure so that you adjust your program to these changes. These changes are usually of minor importance without significant impact on your trip. If significant changes occur related to your flight (for example change in departure time for more than 2 hours or change of departure airport) and you have no alternative that suits you then you can request compensation from the airline, according to the passenger's rights established by the European Union, unless you have been informed on time by the airline.

Transit Visa: Some countries require you to have a valid transit visa even if you’re not stopping enroute.
