About Minors

Tickets for minors can be classified as adults, children or infants depending on the specific airline’s fare rules. We ask for ages of travelers between ages 2 and 17 in order to find the best prices for your trip. We will alert you if we find a special deal for a child or youth traveler while searching over 400 airlines. Please remember that special fares are not available in all markets, or on all flights.
Unaccompanied Minors
Infants (children under 2)
You must contact the airline directly to purchase a ticket for an unaccompanied minor. Most airlines allow unaccompanied minors to travel on their flights, but have special restrictions, so please check with the airline to confirm specific policies. Age restrictions vary by airline. In general, children under the age of 5 may never travel alone. Most airlines require unaccompanied minors services for children ages 5-14, and some require it through age 17. Additional fees apply (approximately $25-100 each way) and can be paid at check-in. For security reasons, most airlines do not allow unaccompanied minors to travel on the last connecting flight of the day. Some carriers require unaccompanied minors to travel on non-stop flights only. The specific flights required vary by airline, so check directly with them prior to making a reservation.
If you are traveling with an infant (a child less than 24 months old) in lap there is usually no charge for US travel. However, the airline may charge a special fare for International travel. Please check with airline(s) for specific rules for purchasing a ticket for an infant, as well as any documentation that may be required (such as a birth certificate).

Reservations for infants cannot be made online. Please complete your booking for the other passengers traveling and call our Customer Service Center at 877.657.4874 to add the infant to the itinerary. Please reference your Trip ID.

Please note: the number of infants may not exceed the number of accompanying adults. No more that 2 infants can be held per row of seats.
