Lost Tickets

If you have lost or failed to produce your paper ticket at check-in, a new ticket must be purchased in order for you to proceed to your destination.

The original dates of travel and bookings must be maintained for a refund to be considered. The carrier whose original stock has been used should also ticket the new document. Where the replacement ticket is of a higher value and other airlines are involved, correspondence would be initiated between carriers. This would result in the delay of a full refund applicable under the Lost Ticket Procedure.

 Documents Required:

 
  1. A Lost Ticket Report/Form of Indemnity must be completed and signed by the passenger. The refund of the tickets purchased will be processed within ninety (90) days.
  2. The lost ticket number, date of purchase and place of issuance must be obtained from the passenger.
  3. A copy of the lost ticket and the replacement ticket.
  4. A lost ticket fee of USD100.00 or equivalent in local currency is applicable.

A lost ticket fee is charged as per the rules governing the original fare purchased. All charges are subject to local statutory taxes and are NON REFUNDABLE.

Outdated Documents

Reissues will be limited to a maximum of two (2) for the purpose of extension of validity. If you have reissued your ticket and are holding a Miscellaneous Charges Order (MCO), you would be entitled to a further extension once you submit your document within one year of the issue date.

Tickets are non-transferable.

You should submit your claim to your point of purchase i.e. Caribbean Airlines Reservations Office, Call Centre, Internet or your Travel Agent.

Partially Used Tickets

All requests must be supported by proof of immigration status. One way or partially used tickets are subject to immigration requirements. This can be established in a number of ways:-

1. Show proof of another ticket being purchased;

2. Stamped proof from immigration of passport showing passenger having status to remain in respective country or having left via other means;

3. Residency, work or study permit for respective country;

4. A detailed explanation from your Travel Agency on an official letterhead

For partially used tickets the date of the first unused coupon determines the validity period - one year from the date of commencement of travel.

For partially used tickets, the period of validity of any new ticket issued for the revised routing will be limited to the expiry date that would have been applicable had the new ticket been issued on the date of sale of the original ticket.

All tickets must adhere to the amended Cancellation/Change Rule (Category 16). If the ticketed flight reservation is not cancelled prior to the ticketed departure time rebooking is not permitted and the ticket will have no value. No transaction will be entertained after this period.

Unused Tickets

Any refund, date change penalty or other penalties are determined by the rules governing the fare you have purchased.

All un-used ticket refunds should be directed to the place you purchased your ticket and refunds can only be made to the original type of payment used to purchase the ticket. You should submit your claim at your point of purchase, i.e., either at a Caribbean Airlines Reservations Office, Call Centre, Internet or your Travel Agent.
