You are responsible for complying with any airline's terms in relation to check-in times, reconfirmation of flights or other matters.

Fares are subject to change without prior notice and are only guaranteed when following confirmation of the contract. Generally, the more flexible the ticket the more expensive it is likely to be and you need to take various points into consideration before deciding between the fares on offer.
Shiraz Travel is connected to a vast database run by a third party, which provide the flight availability, these databases are known as General Distribution Systems (GDS) or Central reservation Systems (CRS). Certain airlines exists which do not maintain "real time" seat availability in the GDS/CRS. Therefore, instances may occur when airlines cancel sales due to the seats not being available.

There are a limited number of airlines which participate in the GDS/CRS, but do not participate in the UK Ticketing plan. In the unlikely event that you purchase tickets from an airline that does not participate in the UK Ticketing Plan Shiraz Travel Ltd will be unable to issue the relevant tickets and will have to terminate the reservation.
