Do I need to reconfirm my flights?
departures should be reconfirmed directly with the airline 72 hours prior
to departure. You may additionally want to call the airline on the day of
departure to verify on-time status. Domestic flights do not require confirmation.
We do, however, recommend you check on-time status with the airline on the
day of departure.
When reconfirming flights, we recommend you also reconfirm any special meal
or service requests and ensure your seat is pre-assigned.
When do I need to check-in for my flight?
flights require a minimum 2 hour check in. In airports with heightened security
or traffic volumes, we recommend at least 3 hours. Domestic flights require
a 1 hour advance check in.
How far in advance should I book my flight?
|Ans.The further in advance
you book, the greater the chance that there will be inexpensive seats available
on the flights you want. With the Standard Ticket you will generally need
to purchase your tickets 7-21 days in advance if you want a decent rate.
However, if you must travel last minute, don't worry; the STA Travel Student
Ticket can be purchased right up until the day of departure on most airlines.
