Frequently Asked Question

Billing & Payments FAQ's

Q. When can I expect my refund?

When a reservation is cancelled the same day it was booked, funds for the Airline portion are not collected. Any pending charges you may have seen would have been a "pending hold" for verification. These funds will return to your available credit and will not reflect as a refund.  This process normally takes from 3-7 bUSiness days, depending on your banking institutions procedures.

Please note: Some Prepaid credit card companies will hold pending authorizations for up to 30 days.

If the airline rules allow for cancellation the day after booking, funds for the Airline portion will be refunded within 7 - 14 bUSiness days. It will depend upon the Airline(s) and your banking institutions policies. At times the refund will post before the charge is processed or may not appear on your current statement. Please contact your bank to verify the refund was received.

Any refunds requested after 48-hours of purchase are based solely upon the Airline(s) rules. If approved, the refund will generally take 1 - 2 billing statement cycles. In some exceptional cases refunds may take longer than originally anticipated. An email update will be sent to you advising of any delay.

Q. I received an email advising of a refund I did not request.

These refunds are typically for seat assignment requests that could not be fulfilled by the Airline or during a quality check if we detected an overcharge. This refund does not affect your airline ticket purchase.

Q. I have multiple charges on my account.

This occurs when multiple Airlines or passengers are booked in a reservation. You will see a charge for each ticket processed separately. Any service fees, taxes or additional services may also show as separate charges with the description of Airline/Taxes and Fees. When added together these amounts should total the amount you were quoted.

Q. I have duplicate charges for the same trip on my account.

Verify with your bank what company the charges are coming from that have posted. Most tickets issued through skywingtravel will have the description of NV or Las Vegas on your statement. If you are certain there are posted duplicate charges from skywingtravel, please contact the Billing Department for assistance at 844-893-8970.

Q. I've been charged more than what was quoted.

Confirm with your bank whether the charges in question have posted or are pending to your account. At the time of reservation a "pending charge" is placed on your account for the full amount. The bank/credit card company then puts a "hold" on that dollar amount, until the transaction either posts or is cleared. With a successful transaction, the charge will typically post to the account within 2-3 bUSiness days, at that time the money will be deducted from your account, and the "hold" will be released. At times the “pending hold” can show on your account after the charge has posted. Please allow time for the "pending hold" to return to your available credit. This is dependent on your banking institutions policies.

Please note: Your initial quote may not include seat charges, insurance or any additional services requested. These services are charged at the time they are selected and will increase the total cost of your trip. Posted charges may appear in multiple transactions which should total to the amount you were quoted.
