How do i know that my flight booking is confirmed

Your booking can only be confirmed once your credit card transaction has been processed or the money you transferred has reflected on our account. Once processed, you will receive an e-ticket email or, for certain low cost carriers, a confirmation email with a reference number.

When you make your booking, we will first send you a booking confirmation e-mail. This contains:

  1. Your Travelstart booking reference number
  2. Your airline booking reference number
  3. Your flight details
  4. Your payment details


For non low cost carriers you will receive an e-ticket email, which contains, in addition to the points above:

  1. Your e-ticket number
  2. A link where you can log in and view real-time information about your flight

    For low cost carriers you will receive a confirmation email from the respective airline with the reference number and a confirmation email from us. Please note that low cost carriers do not issue tickets.

How do i travel with an infant / request a baby basket?

Children under the age of 2 usually do not get their own seat. They will have to sit on an adult's lap. Most airlines offer baby baskets for infants up to six months old (depending on the infant's length and weight), to be requested on long haul flights. To make this request please email us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. A service fee will apply to process this request. As the confirmation of the request depends on the airline, we cannot guarantee that this service will be available on your chosen flights.

how do i request a wheelchair

Please Contact Us or the airline directly. 

Kindly provide us with the information, which passengers will be in need of wheelchair assistance, their age, if they can walk short distances, climb steps and help themselves onboard or if they are wheelchair -bound on a permanent basis. Please note that we cannot guarantee this service as the confirmation of your request depends on the airline.

 

Can i redeem Airmiles when i make a booking with you?

Unfortunately we cannot help you redeem your air miles (for example if you would like to book your flight using your accumulated credit). This must be done directly through the airline. You will also need to contact the airline directly if you want information about the status of your frequent flyer account. 

However, what we can do is make sure that your frequent flyer number is added to your booking to allow miles to be credited to your account when you book with us. You can Contact Us for this. 

A service fee will apply to process this request. As the confirmation of the request depends on the airline, we cannot guarantee that the miles will be credited to your account.

 

Why must i provide date of birth. passport information etc. when making a booking on a certain airline or carrier to/from/via the USA?

Certain airlines and/or governments of the country/ies that you are visiting require/s further information for security reasons before we can issue your ticket (if departure is in less than 96 hours). If you book well in advance we can issue your ticket with the passenger's full names and date of birth but if the remaining information is not in the booking at least 96 hours before departure, the airline will very likely refuse you to board on the day of your first flight. 

When you make a booking, we will remind you to provide us with these details via an urgent email, which needs to be replied to on the same day to guarantee your ticket price, as we cannot issue the ticket without this information. 

For early departures to/from/via the USA or any destination with certain airlines (Egyptair, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Turkish Airlines and Qatar Airways), we can only guarantee the same price if we receive the required information before midnight (Tanzanian time) on the same day the booking was made. Should we not receive your information before midnight, we cannot issue your ticket and therefore cannot guarantee your ticket price. 

The required information we urgently need from you for each passenger is:

  • Passport number
  • Country where passport was issued
  • Date of passport expiry
  • Nationality
  • Redress number (if applicable)
    (The redress number is only applicable if you are travelling to the USA and have a name similar to or the same as a name on the current terrorist watch list. You might then experience secondary security screenings at airports, which are very time consuming. You can prevent this by providing your Redress Number at the time of booking. A Redress Number is a unique number that helps TSA (Transportation Security Administration) eliminate watch list misidentification. People who this is applicable to can apply for a redress number at http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/customer/redress/index.shtm.)
    If you have not heard of it before, don't worry about it. You can leave it blank.

If you are not travelling from/via/to the USA or with airlines Egyptair, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Turkish Airlines and Qatar Airways, the additional information is not necessary.
