Why did you establish Travolic?
We realized the hardships that travel lovers face while trying to find the best prices with the best facilities offered by airlines and travel agencies regarding the flights, accommodation, and transportation aspects. So we found it brilliant to devise a platform that addresses those issues by showing all flights and hotels deals in one place with all the details of contact with the most efficient sorting and filtering tools to offer the info through a simple, clutter-free interface.
What is a metasearch website? How do you find yourself different from an online travel agency?
We are like an operative magnet that brings you all travel market offerings by integrating with thousands of travel service providers from airlines, Online Travel Agencies, and hotels. This portal you deal with simply to filter and sort the results and define more your requirement through ticking or unticking the options boxes.
How does Travolic gain profits from this business?
We gain profits from commissions and advertising. However, this in no way affects the prices that travelers pay as we do not charge the traveler any cost as we are not a booking platform.
Does your platform meet the standards of IATA’s NDC?
Sure we had to dignify our business by meeting the standards imposed by IATA’s NDC to be a global distribution point for advanced tickets and ancillary bookings. To clarify, we are now enhanced by IATA to publish and process any NDC-ready provider’s tickets.
How does Travolic work?
Travolic is a free travel search engine that you can use to look for flights and hotels with the most affordable fees that accord with the services and facilities offered. When you use it, it does not cost you any fees even when you take advantage of the offers presented via its platform.
How are the results ordered?
Travolic helps you get the cheapest flights and hotels. There is an algorithm that is created to specify which price to be displayed first in case there are two options of equal prices. The algorithm considers the user experience, customer satisfaction, evaluation given by customers, and service conformity.
How can I cancel/change my bookings?
If you booked your flight through Travolic website with one of our providers, then you can head to your Bookings page and find out about the round-the-clock support. If you booked your travel outside of Travolic or were redirected from the search engine to the provider's web page to complete the booking process, then you'll need to get in contact with the provider directly. If you are unaware of the service provider, check your credit card statements and see which provider charged you for the service.
I have picked a deal on your site but it tells me that the price has increased. What does that mean?
Because we're searching through a huge array of other travel websites at once, sometimes there are accuracy issues with the information we're retrieving from those sites. Either the provider’s site isn't updating their inventory with us, has fetched a wrong path, or another traveler has booked the last available seat.
What is the refund policy of Travolic?
Travolic is an unbiased search engine, not a seller or a reseller, so we should not have a refund policy. The refund policy is handled solely by the provider through which you have booked your flight. Just go to your Bookings to identify your service provider's information.
What is a Hacker’s fare?
As saving money is the ultimate goal for any traveler, we discovered that the best technique to win a cut-price deal on some flights was to reserve two one-way flights instead of a return ticket. So, that's exactly what a Hacker Fare does. It finds two conformable one-way flights to help you save big on flight prices. You have to ensure first that each leg of your trip is available before booking flights.
Do the prices include taxes and fees?
All flight prices offered by Travolic include rightful taxes and charges. Any exceptions to this include any optional fees like checked baggage or airlines that charge for seat selection, pet accommodations, and so forth. These types of added charges will have to be arranged separately with your airlines. Want to know what sort of fees an airline might charge?

Also, be notified that many airlines charge a substantial change fee to amend any mistakes if any piece of information needs to be changed or modified after the ticket has been booked.
I want to visit several destinations on the same trip. Can I reserve a flight that targets more than one destination?
No worries. When you're on the Travolic Flights page, select 'Multi-City' above the search bar before clicking on the search button. This will allow you to search for a flight with up to 3 different legs.

We suggest you find the flight you wish to purchase by completing a search at travolic.com and then contact the airline directly to talk over collective trips.
Why can users see different prices if they access Travolic from different domains/locales?
Due to the different sales laws and local taxes that a flight provider has to pay based on a local version of Travolic and that is why they may not be able to sell to global customers at the same price, or at all.
What do you mean by “Major Airline”?
Sometimes, providers give out special discounted rates on flights with the following caveat: because the rates are so low, the airline wants to remain anonymous until you complete your purchase.

When I pick a deal on Travolic site I got this message “the price has increased.” What’s up with that?

What is the refund policy of Travolic?
As Travolic is a search engine, not a seller, we don't have a refund policy -- that's tackled solely by the provider that booked your trip. If you do not know your service provider, check your credit card statement and/or go to Bookings page to locate your provider's information.

From where do you get the star ratings for hotels?

We recognize that some of those providers are more reliable than others and consider this fact when displaying the number of stars.
Can I trust a hotel's review rating? Where are you getting those reviews?
All of our hotel reviews are given by verified guests, so you have to know that what you're reading is valid and proper.
On which basis does Travolic rank hotel search results?
When you search for a hotel on Travolic, our automatic sorting tool uses the 'Recommended' algorithm. This algorithm is based on a few essential factors. The first two of those factors rely on each hotel's guest rating and popularity in terms of clicks. Hotels shown on Travolic are often available to book on several provider sites, each of which will pay for clicks or bookings that they get via Travolic. We also factor this average revenue potential of each hotel into our recommendations. You can also choose to sort by 'Price', which will rank hotels by the lowest price first, or by 'Review Score', which will classify hotels by review scores. Within a hotel listing, we order our results based on an embedded algorithm that balances the prices and our revenue for the results shown. If the cheapest offer is not displayed above the “View Deal” or “Select” button, we highlight it in green in the central section of the listing.
