Many people think nonstop and direct flights are interchangeable terms, but there are differences between the two.

A nonstop flight does as its name suggests: flies from one airport to another without stopping.

A direct flight, on the other hand, makes (so called technical) stops along the way.

Often, passengers traveling on direct flights make a stop at a midpoint airport and remain seated on the plane while some passengers exit and others board. An itinerary with connecting flights requires passengers to change planes at a midpoint airport, which may be in a different terminal or on a different airline.

The minimum connecting time is the standard amount of time needed to make a connecting flight at a particular airport. This standard is determined by the air traffic conferences and varies according to the airport and the airline. The connection times we offer on our website are in accordance with these standards, so you don't have to worry about them.

In the event that your flight is delayed, causing you to miss your connecting flight, it is the airlines responsibility to rebook you on the next available flight. Should there not be other flights that day the airline should offer you accommodation.

Meals and transport should also be offered by the airline if the waiting period is long.

Often these problems are caused by certain settings on your computer. Please delete your cookies and temporary offline files / cache of your internet browser and see if that makes a difference. If this doesn't help - have you checked your security settings on your computer? Perhaps these settings are too high (sensitive) and therefore block access to certain web pages.

Please also check your firewall settings as these could cause problems while you are connecting to secure web pages like our payment form. Another reason could be that your anti virus software can interfere with your connection to certain secure websites.

Certain airlines and/or governments of the country/ies that you are visiting require/s the 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 passengers' 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 with a link that allows you to fill out the necessary information using an online form. We also display information online with the option to fill out a form during the booking process.

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 (South African 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 haven't 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.

Yes, if you have more than one passenger and would like to pay for each ticket separately. So you could pay one ticket with one card and the other ticket with another card or via Internet Bank Transfer. It is, however, not possible to pay one ticket partially with two different credit cards or with credit card and bank transfer.

We will email you a receipt of payment as soon as we have received it.

Airport departure taxes are included in the prices you see on our website. However, in certain Countries (like Thailand for example), a local departure tax is payable directly at the Airport on day of departure, in local currency. Prior to ticket issue, taxes can fluctuate due to currency conversions which may alter the total amount due for the booking.

We reserve the right to re-price your booking at the correct amount on day of ticket issue. Should you be unhappy with the new amount, we will refund you in full.

VAT is only charged for Domestic air travel and not for International air travel and is included in all our airfare quotations and confirmations.

If you have booked an e-ticket, it will be emailed to you shortly after we receive your payment.

Electronic ticket or 'e-ticket' is a paperless ticketing system whereby the ticket is held in the airline's database. So we are not sending you the actual ticket via email but only the information you need at the check-in. E-tickets cannot be lost or be used by anyone else, so they are safer than standard paper tickets.

No, this is not possible. It will depend on the airline and/or destination if a paper or E-ticket is issued. Kindly note that we might have to change the ticket to a paper ticket or E-ticket after the type was confirmed online. As we do charge a fee to send paper tickets via registered mail, we will contact you to confirm with you before we issue the ticket. In case you have paid for a paper ticket to be sent already we will, of course, refund you the fee we have charged in case an electronic ticket is possible.

Kulula, Mango and 1Time do not send out tickets but will email you a booking confirmation which you will use to check-in with instead.

Unfortunately there is no simple answer to this question - the rules vary between airlines and different rules pertain to each airfare and booking class.

Please note that handling fees will apply when we check the fare conditions of your ticket for you, even if the outcome is that the airline does not allow changes.


You may choose to fly on your outbound flight and not use your return flight. However, this does not apply the other way around. If you don't check in for one of your flights, the airline will cancel all the remaining parts of the ticket, which will become useless. Please note that you will not get any money refunded for any parts of the ticket not used.

No, it is unfortunately not possible to change departure or destination city on your booking.

Most airlines do not accept name changes after the ticket has been issued. It is sometimes possible to correct a few letters on a ticket against a fee, if the name has been misspelled.

If the name on your ticket is not correctly spelled, please contact us, via email on infonamibia@travelstart.com. or by telephone on + 27 21 468 4380.

Please note that handling fees will apply when we check if the correction is possible even if the outcome is that the airline does not allow changes.


In most cases, the airline will permit us to reissue the ticket at a fee should the spelling mistake be no more than 3 letters in the name. Please contact us, via email on infonamibia@travelstart.com. or by telephone on +27 21 468 4380.

Any object that has been removed is subject to destruction. When in doubt, please place these objects in your checked luggage.

We strongly advise you to place all liquids in your checked baggage prior to departure.The following are considered as liquids: gels, semi-solid materials, lotions and the contents of pressurized containers such as: toothpaste, hair gel, drinks, soups, syrups, perfumes, shaving foam, aerosols and all other articles of similar consistency. Please note that you are only permitted to take a maximum of 100ml per item with you in your hand luggage not exceeding one liter in total. The containers need to be packed in a re-sealable plastic bag (for example a sandwich bag). If you left it to last minute, most shops at the airport sell them as well.


If you are traveling with the same airline the entire journey, your luggage is most likely to be checked through to your final destination. However, in some countries you need to re-check your luggage at the first stop in that country, for example in the United States, Thailand and South Africa. If your journey includes different airlines, please ask at check-in if it is possible to through-check your luggage to the final destination. If you travel on two tickets in order to get to your final destination, please advise the check-in staff accordingly to find out if your luggage will be checked through.


Yes, you need a Passport. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your return and some countries (like Namibia) require that you have at least one blank page in your passport.

As Visa regulations differ from country to country, please call the respective Embassy directly. Please note that you might need a transit visa for certain countries or if you transit for longer than 8 hours.

Certain airlines and/or governments of the country/ies that you are visiting require/s the 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 passengers' 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 with a link that allows you to fill out the necessary information using an online form. We also display information online with the option to fill out a form during the booking process.

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 (South African 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 haven't 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.

Only a few Airlines still require this to be done but as a safety measure, we strongly recommend that you call the Airline directly at least 72 hours prior to departure to reconfirm your flight and ensure that no changes were made to your itinerary - especially for your return flight as the Airlines struggle to reach their passengers when they are at their destination.

Mango requires to see the Credit Card at check-in as a protection of possible fraud. In case you don't have the Credit Card the booking was paid with it will be sufficient to bring a copy of the credit card and a copy of the credit card holder's ID.


Often these problems are caused by certain settings on your computer. Please delete your cookies and temporary offline files / cache of your internet browser and see if that makes a difference. If this doesn't help - have you checked your security settings on your computer? Perhaps these settings are too high (sensitive) and therefore block access to certain web pages.

Please also check your firewall settings as these could cause problems while you are connecting to secure web pages like our payment form. Another reason could be that your anti-virus software can interfere with your connection to certain secure websites.
