Vayama special deals" are specially priced airfares we have negotiated directly with our airline partners. Vayama special deals have limited space and may not be available for the specific dates and times of your search. Flexibility is the key to securing these great rates.

  • Special deals can also be viewed on the Vayama homepage in the "Travel deals" section in the lower right corner and can be booked in the "Book Flights" area of the homepage. For your convenience, for direct access to our Travel Deals page.

To take advantage of a special deal you have found in the "deals" section of vayama.com:

  • Read the associated information displayed with the deal taking note of any specific restrictions tied to dates or day of the week travel requirements.
  • Click on the "Check Availability" link associated with the deal of interest to you.
  • In the "find a flight" box, enter your desired dates of travel, number and type(s) of travelers, and enter the specific airline the deal is associated with. You can also leave the airline section blank to see comparative fares offered by other airlines.

Child, infant, and Student fares can be booked on Vayama. Unaccompanied children under the age of 18, senior, companion, military and government fares are not offered through Vayama. If you require one of those fare type options, it will be necessary for you to contact the airline directly for information and booking.

Unaccompanied children under the age of 18 can not be booked on the Vayama website. In many cases, airlines will not allow an unaccompanied child to fly internationally without special documentation and/or payment of additional fees.

If you have a child under the age of 18 who will be flying internationally without an accompanying adult, please contact the airline directly as Vayama will be unable to complete this booking.

If you are traveling with an infant (a child less than 24 months of age for the duration of the trip) in your lap, a ticket must be purchased.

Most airlines allow infants under the age of 24 months, at the time of originating departure, to travel on the lap of an adult passenger. Only one infant is allowed to travel per adult when the infant is not occupying a seat. Generally the fare for an infant not occupying a seat is 10% of the base fare paid by the accompanying adult plus applicable taxes-agent imposed fees.

Please note:

  • If an infant becomes two years of age during the trip, some airlines require charging the applicable child fare on all flights following the date when the infant became two. When applicable half the fare will be charged at the infant rate and half at the child rate. When this occurs, the child will be assigned a seat for the segments where the child fare applies.

  • In some rare cases, if the infant becomes two years of age during the trip, the full child fare will be charged and a seat will be assigned for the entire trip.

  • No more that 2 infants can be held per row of seats.

  • A passport is required for infants traveling to foreign destinations.

  • Some airlines will provide a bassinet for infants. These may not be available on all flights and must be arranged in advance of departure and directly with the airline.

  • Our Customer Support Team is here to help! If you need assistance completing your booking, or have an immediate need with an existing reservation, 1.650.265.1856.

    Codeshare flights are flights operated by one airline on behalf of another. When a codeshare flight is shown as an option within a given itinerary, you will first see the name and flight number of the airline who controls the booking. Directly below that information you will see the full name of the airline who is actually providing the transportation service.

    Airlines often codeshare on routes so they can offer customers service on all flight segments of their itinerary even if they do not actually fly their own aircraft on one or more flights associated with the itinerary.

    Special Note: It is important to note that when checking in on a flight designated as a codeshare flight that you go to the terminal and check-in counter of the airline who is actually providing the flight services as referenced in the itinerary display as, *Operated by....

    The redemption of accumulated Frequent Flyer miles in exchange for upgrades or free tickets must be handled directly through the airline for which the Frequent Flyer program applies. Please contact each airline directly for specific rules.

    In many cases, but not all, you may qualify for the accumulation of frequent flyer miles for your flights booked through Vayama. Some special discounted fares may be restricted, by the airline, from earning frequent flyer miles.

    Whether frequent flyer miles can be accumulated or not is based on the "booking class associated with the itinerary and fare being selected. To determine what booking class(es) apply to the itinerary you are interested in selecting, click on the "fare details" button directly under the itinerary. Under the "Detailed Fare Information" section, you will see flight details. On the far right of this section is a list of "fare basis codes". The first letter of each fare basis code represents the "booking class" for that flight segment. NOTE: The booking class will NOT be available in association with any "Vayama special fares". Always verify "booking class" requirements and eligibility directly with the airline in advance of booking. Vayama is not responsible for fares purchased that might not receive full frequent flyer mileage credit.

    • If you already have a frequent flyer account established, remember to enter your number by clicking on the "Add Frequent Flyer Number" link to the right of the box where the last name of the traveler is entered. By doing so, your frequent flier information will be automatically entered into your reservation and passed through to the associated airline.
    • If you did not have your frequent flyer information at the time of booking, please give us a call at 1.650.265.1866 or send an email to cs@vayama.com and we will enter your numbers into your record.

    Due to changes in the airline industry Vayama, with few exceptions, no longer issues paper tickets. Only electronic tickets are issued.

    Airline fares fluctuate up and down constantly. Once your airline tickets are purchased and issued, Vayama locks in the fare at that point and will not charge additionally if the fare should go up following purchase. Conversely, if the fare should go down following purchase vayama will NOT provide a refund for the difference between the original fare paid and the lower fare found after ticket issuance.

    Your full middle name is not required. A middle initial or no middle initial are both acceptable to the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) who monitors this data and sets the guidelines.

    Airline reservation systems enforce a maximum number of characters for the combined first, middle and last names. If your name exceeds the limit, your first name will be shortened automatically by our system. This will NOT affect your ability to board a flight.
