To which packages does the Price Drop Guarantee apply?
The Price Drop Guarantee applies to all Luxury or Distinction Collection packages (please see details on pages 4-5).
How much can clients save with the Price Drop Guarantee?
Should a Transat package become available at a lower price, clients may receive a refund of up to $400 per adult and $200 per child.
To which cases does the Price Drop Guarantee apply?
The Price Drop Guarantee is valid only when the departure city, travel dates, destination, room category and flights are the same as those in the initial booking.
What is the procedure for price adjustment requests?
Once the request is carefully considered and approved, the rate on the original booking is adjusted, and final payment will be required at that time. If the client had already paid in full, then they will be refunded the difference.
Can requests for price adjustments be made more than once before departure?
No. The Price Drop Guarantee may only be applied once, to the same departure date as that in the original booking.
What are the eligibility requirements for an upgrade to Option Plus?
As part of the Early Booking Promotion, Option Plus is offered exclusively on new individual bookings of Luxury or Distinction Collection packages. Hotel rooms must be part of the upgraded room categories offered in our Luxury or Distinction Collection. Packages must be booked by September 30, 2017, for travel between December 15, 2017, and April 30, 2018.
What is the procedure for receiving
an upgrade to Option Plus?
The client’s phone number and email address must be indicated in their file. The Seat Selection Centre will assign a seat for each passenger on file, and the seat selection will be confirmed by email (depending on availability). If the client’s email address is not listed, confirmation of the Option Plus booking will be sent to the travel agent’s email address, since only one confirmation per file is sent. Clients must wait to receive confirmation of their upgrade to Option Plus. If they don’t and decide to book Option Plus themselves either by calling Air Transat or via its website, they will be charged for the upgrade and will not be reimbursed once their original confirmation does arrive.
What type of seats do clients get?
Clients get a standard seat. Those who wish to reserve a two-by-two, emergency exit or extra legroom seat must pay the difference between a standard seat and the newly selected seat.
Is commission earned on Option Plus?
No. Commission does not apply to Option Plus, as it is part of the Early Booking Promotion.
What should a travel agent do if their client does not receive confirmation of their upgrade to Option Plus?
The agent should call the Seat Selection Centre at 1-877-872-6728 if their client does not receive confirmation within 14 business days of booking their package.
Changes to Travel Dates
Can changes to travel dates be made with any Transat South package?

to change travel dates?

What happens if the package price
is different on those new travel dates?
If the package price on the new travel dates is higher, the client must pay the difference between the new price and the price initially paid. No refund will be given should the price on the new travel dates be lower than the original.
If clients change their travel dates, would they still benefit from the other advantages of the Early Booking Promotion?
If the client has booked a Luxury or Distinction Collection package, they can still benefit from Option Plus. However, the Price Drop Guarantee only applies to the original booking.
