What's an e-ticket?

An e-ticket (electronic ticket) is a paperless electronic document with a unique confirmation number that replaces the hassles of a paper ticket. When you purchase an e-ticket, we email it to you within 30 minutes of your booking. Simply print it out and bring it with you - along with a valid photo ID - to the airline counter when checking in for your flight.

I entered my payment details and hit submit - and all I got was a blank screen! I got charged but don't have an e-ticket. What now?

We're really sorry for the inconvenience. In some rare cases, we do not receive the response from the payment gateway on confirmation of payment. In such cases, we would automatically refund the amount charged to your debit card within 15 days. We suggest that in such cases, you book your trip again.

I did a search for flight tickets and selected my flight. However, after providing the passenger details, I see that the fares have increased. Why?

The airline fares are dynamic in nature and are based on availability of the seats on the particular flight. There are always chances that the seats selected by you may get sold by the time you complete your booking. Therefore, to minimize the chances of booking failures, we check the availability of the seats before you proceed with the payment. If you find that the fare has increased at this step, you have the option of going ahead with the booking or refreshing the search.

How do I know my flight was booked?

We'll send you an SMS (to Indian numbers only) and an e-mail to confirm your flight booking.

Can I redeem BOI Points to gift an airline ticket(s)?

Yes, you can easily gift airline tickets to friends/family. However, you need to make the booking in the name of passenger(s) who would be travelling. Please note that air tickets are non-transferable.

What is the minimum timeframe within which I need to redeem before I fly?

There is no minimum timeframe for redeeming your BOI Points. You can redeem your BOI Points for a flight departing on the same day.

How do I get a boarding pass for an e-ticket?

You can check-in in three ways. Some of the airlines provide a web check-in facility, where you can select your seat, get your boarding pass online and print it. If you use this facility, you will have to approach the check-in counter to drop your baggage.
You can also check-in using tele check-in service provided by some of the airlines. In such cases, you will have to present your ticket and ID proof at the airline’s check-in counter for issuance of boarding card and for baggage drop. Alternatively, you can check-in physically at the airport counters of the airline by presenting your ticket and ID proof.

Do I have to show my e-ticket confirmation email at the airline check-in counter?

Yes, you do. Some airports don’t allow you to enter without a printout of your e-ticket, so be sure to carry one with you. If you've forgotten to carry your e-ticket printout, you can contact the airline ticketing counters at the airport to issue a duplicate itinerary receipt.

Do you issue paper tickets?

No, we do not issue paper ticket.

Do I have to show ID proof at the time of check-in?

Yes. The airline and airport authorities may or may not check your ID proof but we strongly recommend that you carry a government-issued photo-ID proof with you whenever you fly.

How do I find out my baggage limit?

Please contact the airline directly or visit their website for accurate details regarding baggage limit.

I've booked my tickets but need to add my child’s tickets to my booking. How do I do it?

Sorry! We do not allow child below 12 years to be booked individually. Please contact your airline to create the booking of child directly with them.

I misspelled my name while booking a ticket. How do I get it changed?

You can call us to check if the airline you’ve booked with entertains change-of-name requests. Most of them do, and we can pass on your request. However, if the airline doesn’t allow it, you’ll have to cancel and re-book the ticket.

I selected the wrong prefix (Mr. /Mrs.) to a passenger's name while booking. How can I get this changed?

Just call BOI Star Rewardz Customer Care at 1800-209-9299. Give your Booking Ref No. We'll find out if your airline supports title change and if it does, we'll pass on your details to them. If the airline doesn’t allow title change, you'll have to cancel and then re-book the ticket with the correct title.

I'm taking a connecting flight. Will I need to change terminals?

In most cases, you will need to change terminals in order to board your connecting flight. Often the terminals are quite distant from each other and you'll need to set aside some extra time to walk from one terminal to another.

Please make it a point to enquire about your terminal as soon as you arrive at the airport, since gate numbers and terminals can change at the last moment.

In that case I'm worried that I won't have enough time and miss my connecting flight?

If you're concerned that you may not have enough time between your flights, please contact BOI Star Rewardz Customer Care at 1800-209-9299. They’ll tell you the duration of your transit and how long it will take you to go from one terminal to another.

Can I book international tickets for infants on BOI Star Rewardz?

Yes, you can book tickets for infants and children on BOI Star Rewardz. However, we do not yet book tickets for unaccompanied minors. When booking international flights for infants, please keep these points in mind:

  • Every passenger (including infants and minors) requires a valid passport.
  • Infants and children must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years old.
  • You can book no more than one infant (under 2 years) per adult. But one adult can fly with a child and an infant.
  • The infant must be under 24 months of age while travelling the outbound sector to qualify for an infant fare.
Can I book a seat on an international flight for an infant?

As a child under 2 years of age does not legally require a seat to fly, it's really up to you to decide whether the infant should have a seat or no. Which is the reason why the cost of a ticket for an infant is different from the cost of a ticket for a child who is more than 2 years old (children over the age of 2, however, must have their own seat). To book a seat for an infant, please select child at the time of search and the cost will be provided.

How much baggage can I carry?

Cabin and checked-in baggage limit varies from airline to airline. Some airlines have baggage weight restrictions and others have a specific number of pieces permitted. Please note that restrictions on baggage apply to both checked-in bags as well as cabin baggage. Often, you’ll be asked to pay for any checked-in luggage that exceeds the weight permitted. Cabin luggage that exceeds the weight limit is not permitted and will have to be checked in. Please check with your airline.
