What We Do
1. What does the airline consider a “group”?
Most airlines consider a group to be at least 10 or more passengers traveling together.
2. How soon should I start looking for flights?
Most airlines have their schedules posted 330 day in the future and we would be more than happy to check rates if schedules are available at that time. We recommend inquiring at least 9 months in advance of your travel dates, as this is when you will typically find the best rates. Waiting too close to departure can result in the possibility of limited availability and a higher fare.
3. How do I request a group quote from Tales from India?
Complete the online Group Request Form, call 844 775 1139 /40 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be prepared to provide your travel dates, number of seats, departure and arrival cities for any flights. Do you have a specific budget, flexible dates/times or any other specific requirements? Let us know. Your group will be assigned to a dedicated who will contact you within 24 hours.
4. Will I be able to review or even change my request before confirming?
Your will use Tales from India Travels exclusive fares or negotiate directly with airlines and other operators for the best itinerary for your group. They will then send you a quote of the estimated total trip price and itinerary. After review by you, the group coordinator, the quote can be accepted. If any changes or new considerations need to be addressed the group can be re-quoted. Once the quote is accepted, Tales from India Travel will confirm the trip and send the group coordinator a contract outlining important rules and deadlines. Complex trips or itineraries with significant ‘on the ground’ details may take longer to quote.
5. Why do I receive a contract?
After your quote has been confirmed, your will send you a contract for your trip, which will include the guaranteed base fare, unless otherwise stated. Read and review all due dates for your group: Deposit, commitment deadline, passenger details, and final payment dates. Missed deadlines can result in penalties or loss of group space. Air and Land components of a trip may have separate due dates and rules. Be sure to thoroughly read through the contract and ask your Tales from India Travel if you have questions.
