9. Conditions of Carriage

Bypassing an airline's conditions of carriage, including back-to-back ticketing (the purchase of two or more tickets with overlapping travel dates, bypassing the minimum conditions of stay) and Hidden City ticketing (the purchase of tickets with segments of flight that the buyer does not want to use but which circumvents the airline's pricing structure) is excluded by many airlines. The use of such inadmissible booking practices may result in the airline taking steps such as cancellations of tickets already issued, refusal of boarding, cancellation of air miles and other benefits, additional Debits from the passenger's credit card, additional charges charged at the airport or subsequent charges.

10. Destinations

Although most trips are completed without incident, travel to specific destinations may involve a higher risk. By offering the trip to certain destinations, DEPATOS does not guarantee that the trip to these destinations is recommended or without risk and is not liable for any damage or loss that may result from the trip to these destinations.

11. Miscellaneous

Our website searches for cheaper offers through the combination of air travel, e.g. separate return tickets with different airlines. If you find a corresponding result, two bookings must be made. Different conditions (e.g. baggage, rebooking and cancellation fees) may apply to each section. Any changes to either booking will not apply to the other booking (e.g. any cancellation of the out-flight by you or the airline will have no effect on the booking of the return flight and you will not be entitled to a refund against the airline which performs the return flight). You are responsible for complying with the terms and conditions of each of the airlines, which may differ (e.g. check-in times and baggage regulations). Please read the terms and conditions of all airlines carefully before booking and make sure you fulfill the booking conditions of all airlines. Since prices can change often, please make sure that both displayed connections are still bookable at the prices displayed before you make the bookings. For international travel, you may need to be able to prove to the immigration authorities at check-in and to the immigration authorities that you have a valid booking for the return flight. For this purpose, it is recommended to print the e-ticket of the return flight before the trip and carry it with you on the journey.

13. Kiwi Guarantee

If the information "flight with own transfer" and "protected by  guarantee" is displayed before you are forwarded to for booking, it is a booking proposal with one or more connecting flights, which are usually listed at the end on the same flight ticket. The flight is therefore "protected".

If you book a flight via , the Kiwi Guarantee will automatically be issued at no additional cost to you, covering the risks described above. All details and requirements can be found at 

Please read the warranty conditions carefully so that you do not suffer any disadvantages in the event of a flight delay, flight cancellation or a change in your travel plan.

If your flight is booked with two or more airlines without a common ticket agreement, it is an unprotected transfer, i.e. a "flight with its own transfer". In this case, the airlines are not obliged to rebook your flight with the existing flight ticket if you can no longer reach the booked connecting flight due to a flight arriving late. As a rule, you will then have to pick up your checked baggage and check it in again on the next flight, and possibly even change the terminal.

Such bookings involve a certain risk, we recommend that you allow sufficient time between flights to change planes to reduce the risk of missing a connecting flight. As a passenger you are obliged to make sure that you have a visa. A visa or transit visa may be required if you need to pass through security, customs and immigration in the country where you are connecting.

14. Flights with own transfer

Air travel plans with their own transfer are similar to unprotected transfers as they also include flights operated by different airlines without a common ticket agreement. This means that airlines are not obliged to accept your onward ticket if the first flight is delayed and you miss your connection. However, for flights with their own transfer, your booking will be made through a travel agent who will provide some guarantee in the event of cancellations or missed connections.

We recommend that you read the travel agency's terms and conditions carefully before booking. Important: If you miss a connection or have a problem with your trip, it is important that you contact the travel agent as soon as possible, as airline staff will usually not be able to help you re-book. Also remember that it is the passenger's duty to check any visa requirements. On a flight with your own transfer, you must pass through security, customs and entry in the country of the connecting flight before you can check in on your next flight. For this reason, a visa or transit visa may be required.
