Terms and conditions for the option "72-hour fare guarantee!"
With online bookings for flight tickets on airberlin.com, there is the option of a "72-hour-fare guarantee!" on selected flights. This gives the person making the booking the option of cancelling the flight within 72 hours of booking it and being reimbursed the total fare; the only fees to be paid are the costs of the "72-hour-fare guarantee!" option. These are non-refundable and amount to €5 (£ 5 / $8) per person per booking on short- and medium-haul flights and €15 (£ 15 / $17) on long-haul flights. The fees are also payable if the booking is not cancelled. The cancellation can be made via My Cockpit ».
If the booking is not cancelled within 72 hours, the tickets are issued and the payment and booking confirmation is sent to the email address supplied when the booking was made.
The names of the persons travelling must be entered correctly at the time of booking and must correspond to information given in the passport/ID. The "72-hour-fare guarantee!" option is not transferable, i.e. if the name is changed or there is a partial cancellation or other change to the booking, the "72-hour-fare guarantee!" option will no longer apply.
The "72-hour fare guarantee!" option may be booked until 14 days before departure.
The "72-hour fare guarantee!" option cannot be booked with PayPal or giropay.
The '72-hour optional booking' service is not available in combination with special offers.
The General Terms and Conditions of Carriage of the airberlin group also apply to the booking.
