When the purchaser selects the "Tourist with restrictions" rate, unless otherwise expressly indicated, this is a tariff which does not permit changes, cancellations or refunding of the amount of the reservation [except for payment of a penalty given by the airline, depending on the tariff applied).  This means that the ticket may not be used otherwise than contracted, including any attempt to use a return potion of a flight without having previously used the outward portion.

 

 

Administration charge.

 

An administration charged will be payable by each passenger, and this will not be refundable.  Any changes or alteration which requires the ticket to be reissued will be subject to a repeat charge.

 

UNACCOMPANIED MINORS

 

(Scheduled flights)

 

For the purposes of air transport, a minor is a person who has not passed his 18th birthday on the date of the flight

 

INFANT (INF).  A minor who has not passed his second birthday on the date of the flight.  He travels without occupying a seat, accompanied by someone over 18, paying a variable percentage of the adult fare.

 

CHILD (CHD). A minor over 2 and under 12 on the date of the flight, always travelling accompanied by someone over 18.  He travels occupying a seat.

 

YOUNG PASSENGER (YP).  A minor over 12 but under 18 on the date of the flight, travelling with no companion, with flight assistance if necessary.  He travels on the full adult fare.

 

 

Limitations of minors with each adult

 

Airliners usually accept the following maximum number of children of minors per passenger:
1 INF
1 INF and 1 CHD
Two CHD under five.

 

If you want to fly with more than two children aged 5-12, you should consult the airline in advance.

 

Exceptionally, (you should always consult to the airline), they may accept two INFs per adult passenger, provided that one travels in the arms of the adult passenger, and the other in a appropriately fitted baby carriage, occupying the seat next to the passenger.  The tariff for the infant occupying the seat will be that of a CHD.

 

Consult other restrictions with your adviser

 

 

Flights in low-cost airlines

 

The general rule among low-cost airlines is that all those under 14 must always be accompanied by an adult, and properly documented with a passport.  If the minor does not meet these requirements, he may be denied boarding.

 

 

Electronic payments

 

When making a purchase, the customer will be asked to provide data to identify passengers all travellers, and form of payment.  This is done in a number of steps. Once the data have been entered, and before you make the purchase, you will be shown the data so that you can check them, and then proceed to buy.  At the same time, once you have made the purchase, you will be sent an e-mail message confirming the purchase with all the information in relation to it, and information on the invoice, which will also be filed by Aviatur S.A..

 

The traveller declares that he knows and will abide by government requirements for exit, entry and other documentation.  This information is supplied on the website for Colombians (link: Travel Documents).  If in doubt, you should contact the online help service before making any purchase; or speak to an adviser in any office or at the Call Centre.

 

The purchase of any product will only be effective at the time that Aviatur makes a valid charge to the credit card supplied, or a transfer is received for the amount of the purchase, and this has been verified by the Financial Department.  Up to that moment, Aviatur may cancel the purchase.

 

Aviatur reserves the right to request additional information from the customer, in order to verify the purchase.

 

If it is not possible to make the credit card charge (“transaction rejected”), the customer must be aware that since payment has not been made, Aviatur or the service provider may cancel the purchase. 

 

Payments for tickets are to be made by credit card before the tickets are issued.

 

Not all prices indicated in the website include airport and other charges.  They do not include these expenses or extra taxes, which may be paid in local currency or in US dollars at the airport in the country concerned.  Variations in tariffs applicable due to delays in payment of reservations in respect of amounts of airport taxes, and which are introduced between the time of reservation and the time of issue of the ticket, will be charged to the customer.

Security and privacy

 

All the information which you supply to our site when registering is transmitted through a  Security Socket Layer (SSL).  This is a tested code system, and allows your equipment to code the information before it is sent to our system.

 

The coded information reaches servers, which have all the latest security patches, and unused ports are closed and protected with a firewall; and the information will finally take its original form only when it is stored in our database.

 

 

Security risks to be considered when performing transactions on the Internet

 

It may happen that a user is deceived bye-mail messages or a DNS server fraud, to visit a false site with the same design, but in which card data are loaded onto a false system, stealing information from the cardholder.  It is therefore important to generate a culture for users to perform their transactions by entering known domains directly, in order to reduce the risk.

 

It may happen that the computer on which the user is performing the transaction may have been invaded, unknown to him,  by spyware or malicious software which captures everything typed onto the keyboard, or information from input devices, which which is then sent to some Internet network or host.  We therefore recommend that as far as possible, you perform your transactions in your computer at home or in the office.

 

There may be supplantation of the user, or the user may deny that he has sent or received the transaction, and it may be used by a third party.

-Date and time when the user at last visited our website
-Design of content which the user selected in his first visit to the website
-Security elements involved in access control to restricted areas.

 

 Nonetheless, users are informed that this use of their terminal can be suppressed.  Once “cookie” data are registered, other users may see whether you are connected or not, and thus contact you faster and more smoothly.
