arrives provided the Traveller has provided correct and adequate flight/ship details to allow for
the tracking of the arrival. The above is true for up to 8 hours of flight/ship delay. If the flight/ship

considers the scheduled pickup time to be the one declared by the Traveller as the arrival time
during the booking, or an updated arrival time as per the Traveller Change Request Policy. Any
notes left by the Traveller during the booking mentioning several flights do not constitute a
scheduled pickup time adjustment. In the occasion where a group of Travellers arriving with
multiple flights landing at different times have booked one Transfer, it is suggested that they add
