If you need help in finding competitive airfare, we offer a customized air booking service. We have wholesale contracts and are seeing great rates. To the right, you can see the difference our Consolidated Airfare can make! On the left is our discounted tour fare and to the right is the lowest published airfare to the general public. We charge a $50 non-refundable service fee per person to book your airfare. Even if booked through us, please note your airline ticket constitutes a contract between yourself and the airline (and not Teeming River Cruises).

No itinerary will be booked until you have had a chance to review and approve. (Airfare rates change constantly.) After submitting this form, you will receive an email notification.

Once you approve the airfare itinerary (via email) and airfare is booked, all changes must be handled ONLINE or through the app directly with the airline per their Contract of Carriage. You will need to sign up  for an account directly with the carrier using your email address. We recommend downloading their app on your smartphone. All future communication after booking regarding your airfare and changes must be handled directly with the carrier online. Note that these discounted fares usually CANNOT be upgraded once purchased (most can be for the Extra Space seat category). Your best chance for an upgrade is to try when you check in online or at the airport. If you want Business Class you need to have us book Business Class.

Your smartphone is the best way to manage, choose seats, change seats, check-in, get boarding passes, add your Frequent Flyer account, add your TSA or Global Entry information and handle your air travel. Here is a quick summary of handling changes.

Some Steps to Change Your Already Ticketed Airfare Itinerary

(Our Cruise Director nor Teeming River Cruise reservationists can help to change your flights, even if purchased through Teeming River Cruises. Our low contract fares only allow changes to be made on the airlines website or with the airline’s smartphone app.

STEP 1
Go to the airline’s website. Click on the log-in link or an area for schedules and checking in. Even if you booked your flight through a third-party website, such as Expedia, or travel agent, you should make changes at the airline’s website.
STEP 2
Retrieve your reservation. Enter your confirmation, e-ticket, credit card number or mileage rewards number (if applicable) into the airline’s website. This will bring up your itinerary.
STEP 3
Make the changes necessary to your flight. You will need to know your confirmation, reservation or electronic ticket number to do this. Enter this number in the appropriate field on the airline’s website — there will be a link to “schedules” or “itineraries” and check-in on the site. This will bring your flight information and itinerary up on your computer. Most sites ask you to click on the flight number and then ask you if you want to change the flight. This will bring up options to do so.
STEP 4
Try to change the flight rather than canceling it, even if you are changing the entire thing. Sometimes you can avoid fees by changing your flight rather than canceling and rebooking. Search for new flights and add them to your itinerary. There might be fees or taxes associated with the change that you’ll need to pay online.
STEP 5
Compare the cost of changing your itinerary to that of buying a completely new ticket. Sometimes this is the cheapest option.
TIP Purchase travel insurance. Travel insurance will guarantee that you get your money back should your flight be canceled or you have to cancel due to illness or other circumstances.
