Generally, you may need a visa for entry into a non-EU country. You may need a transit visa in case you have a connecting flight via a third world country. It is often a good idea to find out visa requirement by visiting the individual country pages on the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website. An up to date advice on immigration, visa & entry requirements may also be gathered by contacting the embassy, consulate or high commission of the destination. This is important for non-British citizens including other EU nationals.

You are advised to ensure that your travel documentation is in order prior to departure. It is likely that you will be turned away at check in if you do not have the correct documentation, Furthermore, most countries will not allow you to enter on a one-way ticket without the relevant visa or documentation.

How long before my departure do I need to check-in?


Please check in as per the following requirement:

International flights - Check-in at least 3 hours prior to departure.
European flights - Check-in at least 2 hours prior to departure.
Domestic flights - Check-in at least 1 hours prior to departure.

Please note that boarding begins 45 minutes prior to departure. Global Travel does not hold any liability whatsoever for your failure to arrive at the airport in time for your specified time resulting in you being unable to travel.

What are e-tickets and how do they benefit me?

The majority of airlines across the world offer Electronic Tickets or e-tickets. One of the major advantages of an e-ticket is that it does not require a paper ticket/record as a confirmation of your flight since that is held by the airline's computerized ticketing system in an electronic format.

An e-ticket means you need not carry a paper ticket while travelling and hence there is no fear of losing it. Since it exists in electronic format, you do not have to wait for your ticket to arrive by post. You can use your e-ticket at the self service check-in machines so avoiding long queues at the manual check-in desks still operated by most airlines. You can also print your boarding pass and track your air miles (if applicable) by using these automated machines.

To use this service you will need the following means of identification:

1. The credit card which you used to purchase your tickets

2. Traveller loyalty card.

3. An e-ticket receipt.

You will need to confirm the airline reference number given at the time of booking.

Please note that some airlines still issue paper tickets for certain flights on certain sectors. If you receive a paper ticket (a card ticket/coupon in a wallet) you must present this at the airport check-in counter or you will be unable to board your flight. If you are unsure of the type of ticket (e-ticket / paper ticket) issued to you, please contact our customer services team at info@globalservicetravel.co.uk

What is the baggage allowance for my flight?


Your baggage allowance is usually shown on your e-ticket or on the itinerary sent along with your paper ticket (if applicable). You may also contact our customer care on 020 8521 1226 if you are unsure about baggage allowance.

Please note that at many airports in the UK, new hand baggage limits have been approved by the Department for Transport with effect from 7 January 2008. As a result of this the restriction previously imposed at these airports limiting hand baggage to one item per person will no longer apply. Please note that these limitations vary depending upon the airport that you fly from and the airline that you fly with.

The following tips may be helpful for you with respect to your baggage:

Please check your hand luggage allowance with your airline prior to packing. As a general guideline, keep the hand luggage up to maximum weight of 5 kilos, and dimensions not exceeding 450mm x 350 mm x 200mm (Height x Width x Depth). Most airlines have a hand luggage measurement gauge at check-in.

Any kind of liquids, gels and cosmetics exceeding 100ml are not permitted in hand luggage. All smaller containers must be taken in a transparent plastic bag.

It is important that you find out your free allowance for checked baggage. Baggage allowance limits are determined and set by the airlines. Your baggage allowance is stated on your e-ticket receipt or paper ticket (where applicable).

Note: As a strict rule, airlines do not allow sharp objects like razors, knives, blades, etc in the hand luggage. Remember to pack sharp objects in your checked baggage.

Weight limits for most airlines:

Passengers travelling in Economy Class - 20 kg (44 lbs) without extra charges.

Passengers travelling in Business Class - 30 kg (66 lbs).

No single bag weighing over 32 kg will be accepted at check-in and you may be asked to re-pack before you check in.

For passengers flying to the United States and Canada A Piece System is in place. Baggage items, or pieces to be checked in, must not be over 158cm in total dimension each (length + width + height), and must not weigh more than 23kgs.

You are advised to check your baggage allowance by contacting the airline that you are flying with in order to avoid unnecessary delays and inconvenience. Passengers with items that exceed the 32kg weight limit, such as sporting equipment, should make special arrangements with the airline in advance. Please note that you may carry weight more than the permissible limit at an additional cost which can be confirmed by contacting the airline.

How do I make the payment? Are there any surcharges?
