Book a flexible ticket by upgrading to a re-bookable ticket! The re-bookable ticket is a Travelstart product that allows you to change your travel dates. You’re entitled to one FREE date change which should be made at least 24 hours before departure.
What does this all mean you might ask? Well, it’s actually a flexible ticket that allows you to make changes to your flight dates beyond the airline usual restrictions. With our re-bookable or flexible ticket, you will only have to pay the bare minimum fare regardless of the circumstances and also depending on where you are going and which airline you are flying with.
What this means is that you can save yourself from that frustrating moment when your travel plans change and you have to pay an arm and a leg just to change your travels dates. However, if you have the flexibility to change your travel dates for whatever reason without having to pay crazy date change fees, airlines penalties and service charges.
Travelstart is the largest, one-stop online travel agency which allows you to search, compare and book flights across multiple airlines at super cheap fares.
All you have to do is complete the booking process which is as easy as pie!

The flexi or re-bookable ticket is an exclusive Travelstart product that allows you to change your flight schedule any time, after you have placed your booking and paid for your flights.
Once you have received your air-ticket or e-ticket and need to change your dates, you can contact us to receive your FREE date change, which is subject to same fare or class availability.
Typical circumstances where you may be unaware of your exact flight schedule include:
Whatever the reason, flights with flexible dates are the perfect way to ensure that you get great value out of your tickets, by enabling you to make changes to your flights in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Flights prices change quite regularly and it’s always tricky to depend on booking last minute flights. The re-bookable ticket helps you save money in that it allows you an opportunity to change your booking to a more suitable date if you need to change plans without incurring the expensive penalty fees that are charged by airlines.
Although the flexi ticket does not cover re-routes and stop-overs, when you purchase it at Travelstart, you can save hundreds and thousands of Rands on:
If for instance you were flying flying to Munich (Germany) from Cape Town, you could decide to change your flight schedule to and extend your trip to allow more time for exploration, or for an excursion to Austria. The flexible ticket would be perfect if you want to spend more time than initially anticipated in Europe before flying back to Cape Town. You can easily extend your trip and fly back a few days or weeks later!
You are a South African business person with multiple meetings scheduled in Dubai. It is beyond your control but, quite regularly, your meeting schedules change for one reason or the other. By booking a ticket with flexible dates, you can easily adjust your tickets to suit the current requirements for either a small fare difference, or - depending on the airline - for no cost at all! As a regular flyer, you will find that over time you will save quite a lot in airfares- with the help of a re-bookable ticket because you are always prepared for changing situations.
