Frequently Asked Questions
Questions before you book
Can I book tickets for infants on Pinkytravels?
Yes, you can book travel for infants less than two years of age on Pinkytravels. Make sure they have valid proof–of–age documents when they’re checking in, and remember that infants must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years old. You can book no more than one infant per adult (hey, you try dealing with luggage, tickets, airport queues and two screaming babies by yourself). To avail of infant fares, the infant must be under 24 months of age throughout the entire itinerary that you’re booking. This includes both outbound and return journeys. If the infant is 24 months or above on the return journey, you need to make a separate booking using a child fare.
What is the maximum number of seats I can book?
A maximum of 9 seats can be booked at one time. If you need to book for more than 9 travellers you will have to re–complete the booking process for the additional travellers. Can I book a multi–city trip? No.
What’s an e–ticket?
An e–ticket (electronic ticket) is a paperless electronic document with a unique confirmation number that neatly replaces the hassles of a paper ticket. When you purchase an e–ticket, we email it to you after the booking is complete. 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.
Can I book a multi–city trip?
Does Pinkytravels offer any loyalty programmes?
No, but there are attractive offers running on the homepage. Stay sharp and you might grab a great deal
Questions while you book
I’ve been getting zero flight results on the search page. What gives?
Clear your browser cache and try the search again. If you still don’t get any flight results, it may either be because we can’t find flights for that route or because there’s no availability of flights for your dates.
Where do I enter my frequent flyer number while booking domestic flights?
We do not have an option of entering the frequent flier number at the time of booking domestic flights. However, we can certainly pass on your frequent flier number to the airline. Just call us as soon as you book your ticket and tell us your trip id and your frequent flier number.
I’ve selected 5 passengers (adult + children). Why are some airlines missing from the search results?
Some airlines don’t allow us to book more than 4 passengers (adult + children) in one go, so try to search for fewer passengers.
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. Please don’t worry. We’ll call you within four hours and complete this booking offline. We suggest you do not try booking again as you may end up getting charged twice.

How do I get my e–ticket details?
We’ll send your e–ticket details to the email address you gave us when you made your reservation.

I’ve booked my tickets but need to add my child’s tickets to my booking. How do I do it?
Unfortunately, a child cannot be added to an existing reservation. You will need to book a separate ticket for your child with the airline directly.
I misspelled my name while booking a ticket. How do I get it changed?

I have forgotten my password. What should I do?
If you’ve forgotten the password, you can use the ‘Forgot password’ feature (https://www.pinkytravels.com/) and reset it.
I selected the wrong prefix (Mr/Mrs) to a passenger’s name while booking. How can I get this changed?
Just call us and tell us your trip ID. 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.

4. Select the checkbox against any passenger you would like to cancel and hit 'Review Cancellation' when done. You can only cancel parts of the booking that haven’t expired.
5. Reconfirm the passengers you have selected and check the refund amount. Once you are convinced of your selection, hit 'Yes, cancel now'. There is a possibility that the refund amount will be unknown at this stage.
6. That’s it - you’re done. We will process your refund within 24 hours. Depending on your mode of payment and bank, this may take between 3 to 14 working days to show up on your account statement.
The flight I booked was cancelled by the airline. How do I get my money back?
If the flight you booked got cancelled, you are entitled to a full refund, in most cases. 1. We request you to cancel your booking online first, by following the steps outlined here. 2. Once you have done this, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your Trip ID and if you mention that your flight was cancelled, we will make sure you get a full refund, after verifying the same with the airline.

To know what’s applicable in your case, check the fare rules mentioned on the booking page when you’re making your reservation (in case you missed it then, you can call us for Cancellation Charges). Apart from the cancellation charges levied by the airline, Pinkytravels charges a cancellation fee of Rs 150 per passenger per sector.If Cancellation is done through the customer support executives assistance, we will levy Rs. 100 per passenger per flight.

We will credit the money back to the same account you used while making the booking. For example, if you used your credit card, we will make an appropriate charge reversal. If you used your debit card, we will credit the money back to the debit card.
How long does it take to process a refund?
We usually process the refund within 4 working days of cancellation. However, it may take slightly longer to reflect in your account statement depending upon your bank. We’ve noticed that it takes about 14 working days for most refunds to hit their respective accounts.

Depending on your bank, the refund generally takes 2 to 3 days (from the day we find out about the cancellation) to get processed. In cases such as no–show or flight cancellation, the refund process can take more than three weeks too.

What is an amendment?
An amendment is a fancy word for a change in your travel plan. You can change the date or time (or both) of your travel; you cannot, however, change the sector(s) on which you’re already booked. For example, if you’re booked on a flight from Mumbai to New Delhi, you can’t change your destination to Goa. Please note that airline changes are not allowed in case of amendments. However, you can cancel your existing reservation and re-book a different airline of your choice online.
How do I make changes to a flight reservation?
Domestic flights: You can either login to your Pinkytravels account and change flight reservation on your own or you can call us 24x7 on 9871007183. International flights: Please call us 24x7 on 9711152267.
What does it cost to make an amendment?
All amendments come at a fee that varies from airline to airline. In addition to this fee, Pinkytravels charges an amendment handling fee of Rs 100 per passenger per sector. We’ll collect these charges from you when we make the changes to your travel plans. We’ll also collect the difference in fare, if any, applicable when the amendment is made
How do I get my ticket(s) after an amendment?
We’ll email your amended tickets within 60 minutes of making the change to the email address you used for the original booking.
Can I cancel my tickets after an amendment?
Yes, but do not cancel from your Pinkytravels Account, call customer support and cancel the same. If you have amended your journey with us or the airline then please cancel your trip 3 hrs before your amended travel date and time.
