How can I make a claim for Price Drop Protection?
Step 1: Bring us an advertised fare prior to departure
Your fare must be in writing and must relate to standard airfares available to the general public. Your genuine advertised fare must be presented to us on the same day as it was advertised and 30 days from the date of payment in full of your original Captain’s Package Fare booking and prior to departure. Travel must originate/depart from Australia. Offer only applies to Captain’s Package Fares and may only be claimed once. The fare must show the date it was advertised and show the final price including all fees and charges (including booking / service fees and all charges for the form of payment chosen). If your fare is from a website, it must show the final price payable at the final payment stage and must show all applicable fees and charges. Your fare must be for the same form of payment as you have paid Flight Centre (e.g. cash, credit card).
You can provide advertised airfares from:
- Other Australian travel agencies
- Airlines; and
- Other Australian-registered businesses and websites
Step 2: Confirmation that the fare is genuine and available
Your consultant will need to confirm that the fare is genuine, available and able to be booked by the general public when you present it to us. If it is, we will refund you the difference by providing you with a Gift Card. Our standard Gift Card Terms and Conditions apply.
If we believe your written fare contains an error in the pricing of the fare, or that the pricing, fare or booking class offered is no longer available to book on the same date, airline and flight number, for the same number of passengers, we may decline to provide you with a Gift Card for the difference in price.

However, if you purchased the Captain's Value or Captain's Premium Package you will receive the full refund for your airfare that you are entitled to (if any) the next business day for cancellations processed prior to noon Eastern Australian Standard Time. If the airfare is non-refundable, no refund will be due.
VISA AND PASSPORT CHECK
All travellers must have a valid passport for international travel and many countries require at least 6 months validity from the date of return and some countries require a machine-readable passport. When assisting with an international travel booking, we will assume that all travellers on the booking have a valid Australian passport. If this is not the case, you must let us know. It is important that you ensure that you have valid passports, visas and re-entry permits which meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities. Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting the requirements of those authorities will be your sole responsibility (except to the extent caused by fault on our part). If you need information regarding visas, passports and other travel document requirements for your trip, please contact your consultant. We can provide you with general information on visa and passport requirements that apply to international travel bookings you make with us. Our consultants can also obtain more specific information from an external visa advisory service provider on your behalf (if you wish, we can assist you to obtain visas through this external service and fees will apply). We do not warrant the accuracy of information provided by any external service and accept no liability for any loss or damage which you may suffer in reliance on it (except to the extent caused by fault on our part). If you are travelling to the United States please see https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov for important information regarding compulsory pre-registration for their visa waiver program (“ESTA”). Australian passport holders will not be able to enter the United States without a valid ESTA (or visa). Please note, you may not meet the eligibility requirements of ESTA and may be required to obtain a visa.

Supplier fees may also apply where a booking is changed and when tickets or documents are re-issued. Where we incur any liability for a supplier cancellation fee for any booking which you change or cancel, you agree to indemnify us for the amount of that fee. Where you seek a refund for a cancelled booking for which payment has been made to the supplier, we will not provide a refund to you until we receive the funds from that supplier, unless you have “Next Business Day Refund” as part of your International Airfare Package.
