The sole obligation of Frontier Travel is to make travel bookings on your behalf with travel service providers. We have no responsibility for these services, nor do we make or give any warranty or representation regarding their standard. All bookings are made subject to the terms and conditions and limitation of liability imposed by these service providers. Your legal recourse is against the specific provider, not Frontier Travel.

If not booking via the website, you must read the conditions provided by the consultant and ask for clarification if you are not sure of the exact requirements.
The terms displayed on this website apply generally to all sales by Frontier Travel. Some products also have special conditions applying to them. Airlines, hotels, wholesalers and other suppliers have various other terms and conditions relating to the purchase of these goods and services. Some of those terms will be displayed in the rules applicable to a particular product, but not all. For example, suppliers often limit or exclude liability in respect of death, personal injury, delay and loss or damage to baggage, however we do not have those conditions to display. It is your responsibility to check those terms and conditions before making a booking through us.
We do not accept any liability of whatever nature, whether in contract, tort or otherwise, for the acts, omissions or default, whether negligent or otherwise, of third party providers over whom we have no direct control. Under circumstances where liability cannot be excluded, such liability is limited to the value of the purchased travel arrangements. We do not accept any liability in contract, tort or otherwise for any injury, damage, loss (including consequential loss), delay, additional expense or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly, by force majeure or any other event which is beyond our control which is not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part.
We are not liable for any claims against non-fulfillment or unsatisfactory fulfillment of products and services purchased on your behalf from third party providers and distributors, such as, but not limited to, airlines, hotels, tour operators, car hire companies, insurance companies, and other entities. At times, airlines and other travel services providers may overbook passengers on their flights or re-schedule flight times and Frontier Travel is not responsible for any such incidents.
Compensation will not apply if a significant change is made for reasons beyond our control. These include: war, threat of war, riots, civil disturbances, terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural and nuclear disasters, fire, epidemics, health risks, changes due to rescheduling or cancellation of flights by an airline or alteration of the airline or aircraft type; closed or congested airports or ports, hurricanes and other actual or potential severe weather conditions, act of government or public authorities or other circumstances amounting to force majeure and/or Acts of God.

Fulfillment is performed during normal office hours. As such, any travel requests and bookings made require a minimum processing time of varying periods, subject to the specific terms and conditions applicable to the type of product or service purchased.

Payment and Credit Cards
Online payments can be made by Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Other arrangements including cash, Debit Cards or Electronic Funds Transfer can be made for in store bookings. Credit card surcharges may be applied where Frontier Travel acts as the merchant.
Before we proceed to issue your airline ticket or process any travel booking on your behalf, various checks are taking place to validate the integrity of credit card information and in certain circumstances the credit card holder will be required to submit verification documentation to substantiate identity. This process is in place to reduce the potential risk of fraud. In circumstances where we cannot contact the card holder and the ticket issuance period lapses thereby making the booking invalid, we will have no choice but to cancel the booked arrangements. Under these circumstances we accept no responsibility for any re-booking costs. Under such circumstances any booking arrangements will be cancelled.
The Credit Card name must match the name of one of the passengers travelling. Please note that an airline may ask for the credit card used for booking during check-in.
We hold the right to ask you for further information regarding your credit card. This may include a photocopy of your passport or drivers licence and the credit card that you are paying with. We hold the right to reject bookings if we believe that they are not genuine bookings or are fraudulent. We hold the right to refuse your booking and your payment.
Frontier Travel reserves the right to pass on your credit card details, and any other essential booking details, to a third party supplier who may charge your card directly for all or part of your booking payment.

We reserve the right at our absolute discretion to decline or accept bookings made from outside Australia. Any automatic booking confirmations for such bookings are conditional contingent on our view of any financial risks, potential ticket dispatch delays, or other international regulations that may apply.

For some international flights and Low Cost Carrier bookings flight pricing has been converted to AUD using the exchange rate at the time the booking is made. Variations to your final price may occur due to currency fluctuations. Please note, where any pricing has been converted from a foreign currency, payments are processed in the original currency and your credit card company may charge a conversion fee.
Please note that bookings for infants do NOT include a seat unless a child price has been paid for.
Bookings made on Low Cost Carriers in some instances do not include a check-in baggage allowance. Check-in baggage allowances included in the fare purchased will be listed on your booking confirmation from the airline. Please contact the airline directly prior to your scheduled departure if you require to add or increase your check-in baggage limit. Baggage fees may be charged directly by the airline for adding or increasing check-in baggage allowances, please note higher charges may be imposed at the airport for any additional requirements that are not pre-arranged. Check-in baggage fees are non-refundable once purchased.
On occasions, operators will give notice that they intend to withdraw a particular special deal prior to the original date. It is not unusual that this notice is only a very short period of time and can be many months prior to departure. When this happens, we will endeavour to inform all affected clients and advise that the supplier has requested full payment in order to secure the special pricing. If you are not able to pay the balance of you booking by the new date, you will be re-invoiced for the new price.

Recommended check-in time
You should check-in at least 120 minutes before the scheduled departure time for international flights and cruises. Failure to do so may result in you being unable to check-in and may result in you forfeiting the entire fare paid.
If you have booked a flight and we are alerted to a significant schedule change by your airline before you leave Australia, we will contact you by email to advise you of this. Please ensure that you have given your contact email address to Frontier Travel and that you regularly check for messages before you leave. You must notify us should your email address change. Frontier Travel has no control over, and cannot accept responsibility for, the imposition of schedule changes or cancellation of your flights by the airline and accepts no liability for costs that may arise as a result of such changes.
After you have left Australia, it is your responsibility to check with the airline that any onward flights you have confirmed are operating as booked. Please note that for some airlines it is mandatory to confirm with them your intention to fly.
Cruise lines and tour operators reserve the right to alter their planned itineraries at any time. Frontier Travel has no control over, and cannot accept responsibility for, the imposition of such changes and accepts no liability for costs that may arise as a result.
Deposits are non-refundable. Payment of a deposit enables Frontier Travel to hold a reservation for you but does not guarantee the fare and/or price. The fare and/or price can only be guaranteed once we receive full payment and tickets and/or other travel documents have been issued. Any Booking/Service Fees that have been charged are also non-refundable.
We will advise you of the date that full payment is required. Additional deposits for certain travel arrangements may also be required by Third Party Suppliers. Failure to make payment in full by the due date may result in the forfeiture of any deposit paid.
Please note that direct deposits may take up to 3 business days to process, therefore you will need to allow sufficient time for payment to be cleared before the actual due date. If paying by cheque, you agree not to stop payment of the cheque even when you cancel a booking. You agree that Frontier Travel may apply the proceeds of the cheque to satisfy any liability you may have to us and the Third Party Suppliers.
Your contract with your Third Party Suppliers may allow suppliers to cancel or amend bookings. We will ensure that you are promptly notified of any significant changes, but accept no liability for any changes or costs incurred which may result.
If we make an error in your booking, which gives rise to a need to significantly change your booking, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure. You will have the choice of either accepting the change of arrangements, accepting an offer of alternative travel arrangements of comparable standard from us, (we will refund any price difference if the alternative has a lower value), or cancelling your booked arrangements and receiving a full refund.
Despite anything to the contrary in these general terms or conditions, changes beyond our control to the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to compensate you in any way, if a significant change is made to your booking for reasons beyond our control.
Cancelled bookings will incur charges. Deposits are non-refundable. We need to receive from you, written notification of cancellation and your original ticket /voucher before any refund can be considered. Even if you decide to cancel arrangements before the balance due date, any deposits paid are non-refundable.
Please note that the terms and conditions for cancellation of bookings and purchases will vary for each product and service. These charges can be up to 100% of the cost of booking, regardless of whether travel has commenced. Please check with your consultant if the fare, hotel or other itinerary item is refundable, as not all arrangements can be refunded. Fees will apply to all refunds. Our administration fee is $135.00 per air ticket plus any airline cancellation fees. A cancellation fee of $135 per tour and $50 per hotel also apply in addition to any supplier charges. Refunds take approximately 12 weeks to process, which is a delay caused by the airlines and other suppliers. Where we incur any liability for a cancellation fee for any booking cancelled by you, you agree to indemnify us for the amount of that fee or charge.
The preceding refund timeline is a guide for your reference only and shall not be binding upon Frontier Travel.
When a refund is available there is a limit to the time in which it may be claimed. If you are not planning to travel, it is your responsibility to cancel the flight directly with the airline or notify Frontier Travel, failure to do so may result in your entire booking being cancelled and you may not be eligible for a refund.
Refunds will only be paid to you once we have received the funds back from the supplier(s). Generally flight tickets cannot be refunded if they are partially used. This is beyond the control of Frontier Travel.
If the reason for your cancellation is covered under the terms of your travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim your cancellation charges through your insurer. It is recommended that you take out travel insurance at the time of booking.
Changes & Reissue Fees
Fees will also apply where a booking is changed or tickets are reissued. Please check with your consultant whether the fare is changeable, as not all fares can be changed. Fees will apply to all changeable fares. Our administration fee is $55.00 per ticket, per change plus any airline or third party charges. Where we incur any liability for a charge or reissue for any booking, you agree to indemnify us for the amount of that fee or charge. Changes to land arrangements will also incur a $55 change fee, plus any additional charges imposed by the supplier.
Note that if you are using an airline ticket credit towards the purchase of a new ticket, then the airline requires the new ticket to be of equal or higher value. You cannot use a ticket credit in part and the new ticket cannot be less than the value of the old ticket. The airline may also restrict your ability to use the ticket credit for a variety of other criteria such as routing, date restrictions and cabin type. You agree to be bound by the airline fare rules that apply to your ticket, which are available on each airline's website and change from time to time. Frontier Travel has no control over the airline fare conditions and are required by the airlines to apple all airline rules to your ticket(s).
Flights must be taken in the sequence they appear on your ticket or electronic ticket confirmation. If you plan not to take a flight as booked, please contact the airline as far in advance as possible to discuss your options. If you do not check in on time for a confirmed reservation, the airline may register you as a ‘no-show’, which could result in extra charges and/or your whole flight itinerary being cancelled and/or render your ticket void.
Certain taxes are mandatory in various countries. There may also be an additional local tax charged at some airports. All taxes are subject to change without notice.
