Book a flexible ticket by upgrading to a rebookable ticket! The rebookable 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 usual restrictions of the airline. With our rebookable or flexible ticket, you are exempt from paying airline penalty and rebooking fees. In the event of a date change, you will only have to pay in the difference if the price of your rebooked ticket is higher that the original ticket.
What this means is that you can save yourself the frustration when your travel plans change and you have to pay an arm and a leg just to change your travels dates. However, with the flexibility to change your travel dates for whatever reason, you won't have to pay crazy date change fees, airlines penalties and service charges.

The flexi or rebookable 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 e-ticket and need to change your dates, you can contact us to receive your FREE date change, which is subject to the same fare or class availability.

Have the freedom to extend your trip with Travelstart's rebookable ticket option. If, for instance, you were flying to Munich from Cape Town, you might want to extend your trip to explore more of the region, or pop over to Austria for a day. The flexible ticket is ideal to extend your European trip by a few days or weeks before flying back to Cape Town.
You might be a frequent business traveller 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) at no cost at all!
