Al-Futtaim Travel Services
Al-Futtaim Travel acts as an agent for third party suppliers such as airlines, hotels, car rental firms and others (‘Travel Suppliers’). When you make an online booking on this website, a contract is created between you and the Travel Supplier, and their separate terms and conditions will apply to your reservation and purchase of travel-related goods and services that you have selected.
The Travel Suppliers separate terms and conditions will be highlighted to you as you progress through the website. By accepting the Travel Supplier’s offer, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions imposed by the purchase, including payment of all amounts when due and compliance with all rules and restrictions regarding the availability of fares or the cancellation, change of booking and refund in respect of travel.

Payment – Air Products
For any airline tickets to be issued, advance payment in full is required. Al-Futtaim Travel allows you to book air products online either in whole or with a deposit. If a deposit is made, you are responsible for settling the remaining outstanding balance within 48 hours with our regional partner; otherwise, you risk incurring the cancellation of the booking, together with any applicable cancellation fee. Please note that in some circumstances, the price of the ticket quoted may either be different due to taxes not shown on the global computer reservation system (e.g., war insurance, fuel surcharge) or changes made between the time of your booking and the time of issuing the ticket. If this occurs, Al-Futtaim Travel accepts no responsibility or liability for this price fluctuation.
