Frequently Asked Questions
Booking vacation packages (general)

Booking a vacation package allows you to plan and purchase your entire trip in one convenient transaction.

Then, it arranges those best-priced flights in order of the closest time to what you selected in the time preference menus for both departure and return.
Please note that if your preferred time does not appear, it may be that the air carriers do not have flights available that match your specified times.
If I book a flight with my vacation package, how do I reserve my seat assignments?
During the vacation booking process, you will be offered the option to reserve your seat assignments. If you choose not to reserve them at the time of booking, seats will automatically be assigned to you when available. Confirmed seat assignments will be printed on your electronic travel documents.

If an infant is traveling with you and you do not purchase a seat for the infant, select the number of children traveling with you and then select IN from the drop-down menu that appears for the children's age.
For some international destinations, additional taxes may apply when you include an infant on the reservation. The airline may also issue a ticket for the infant traveler.

Pricing vacation packages
How do I know what the vacation price includes?
When you search for a vacation package, the availability prices always include the combined hotel and flight prices, any selected add-on prices, and all applicable air and hotel taxes and fees. The website does not add any surprise taxes or fees to the air and hotel vacation prices when you confirm the reservation. You may use the link at the bottom of the package summary screen to view a detailed breakdown of the amount of taxes/fees related to your vacation.
How far from my intended travel date can I price a vacation?
Normally, you can search for a vacation 330 days prior to departure. There may be some exceptions to this rule. Please try different date options if your vacation search is not successful.
When I checked the vacation price yesterday it was lower than it is today. Why?
When you price an INCLUSIVE COLLECTION package, you are viewing live inventory. Because prices are based on many factors, including availability of rooms/room types, flights and demand for the packages, prices can fluctuate, even within minutes. As it is not uncommon for prices to fluctuate, INCLUSIVE COLLECTION suggests that you check out different flights or alternate dates for a lower fare that is still available. The only way to secure a vacation price is to pay for it in full.
When do I need to pay for my vacation?
Full payment for your vacation is due at time of booking, and is required in order to confirm your reservation.
Are payments processed on a secure server? How do I know?
Yes, all INCLUSIVE COLLECTION payments process through a secure server. You know the server is secure by the little closed lock that appears at the bottom right of the web browser window. You can also see the "secure" url displayed briefly on the bottom left of the screen immediately after you click complete booking.
What taxes and fees do I have to pay?
Taxes and fees can include airport facility charges, federal taxes, state taxes, and government fees. The complete vacation package determines the fees and surcharges. The website includes these fees in all vacation prices that appear on the selection screens. When you search using the vacation search tool, the prices you see in availability include the air and hotel taxes and fees when you book online. In some foreign destinations, there may also be additional nominal fees not included in the vacation package price. These fees are due upon arrival and must be paid at the airport before departure. For a listing of these fees, see the Terms and Conditions.
Can I use more than one credit card to apply payment?
Yes. You can use up to four different credit cards for payment at the time of booking.
What happens when the website rejects a credit card?
The website rejects a credit card if the information is entered incorrectly, the credit card is invalid, or the credit card exceeds its limit. If one of these situations occurs, you immediately receive an error message. Contact the customer care center (1-800-597-4761) for assistance.
When I try to confirm my online booking, at the end of the reservations process it says that my address cannot be verified. Why?
Our system can only recognize your address if you enter it exactly as it appears on your credit card billing statement. Please refer to your credit card billing statement, and try entering your address again. If you continue to receive the "cannot verify address" message, contact the customer care center (1-800-597-4761) for assistance.
How do I know my reservation is confirmed?
Your reservation is confirmed if a confirmation number appears at the top of the Reservation Confirmation screen, after you click Complete Booking. It may take several minutes for the Reservation Confirmation screen to appear. Remember to press Complete Booking only one time, and do not stop the transaction prior to receiving your confirmation number. If you stop the transaction or click the back button and then click Complete Booking again, you may confirm the reservation more than once and incur double charges on your credit card. After you confirm the reservation, you will automatically receive an email confirmation.
