Simply email or send us a letter and we will add it on with the airline, and call you to take payment.
Is it possible to reserve seating?
Some airlines allow reserve seating; please contact our reservations team who shall find out if it's possible and the charge to do so.

Please read the airline’s seating policy prior to booking to ensure the seats you select are suitable for you.

Check In

What time do I need to be at the airport for check in?
All airlines advise to be at the airport at least 2 hours prior to your departure.
Do I need to provide passport details? How & why?
Passport details will need to be provided for all airlines except Air Malta, most airlines require the information to help speed up the check in process as well as a security check. This can be done via the "Manage My Booking" tab on our website, over the phone or via email.
When flying with Ryan Air does Chevron deal with the whole check in process and send me boarding passes?
We do indeed; we check you in for your flight and send your boarding passes. Please note, Ryanair passengers who do not pre-book seats will automatically be allocated seats by the airline and therefore may not receive travel documents until less than 24 hours prior to departure.
How do I check-in for my easyJet flight?
We operate two different check in procedures for easyJet flights, depending on your flight. Some clients travelling on a Tuesday or Friday from Manchester will now receive an E-ticket prior to departure and so will have to check in at the airport (Please check your Holiday Itinerary.) Chevron will continue to check in all clients travelling on other easyJet flights and send the boarding cards; if you have not received them 7 days prior to departure please contact the office so another copy can be sent. Failure to present a valid boarding card at the airport may result in you being unable to travel or incurring a charge.

Documentation

When will I receive travel documents?
Travel documents are usually sent 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure (Ryan Air flights booked prior to 16th May 2018 may only receive their boarding passes 1-2 days prior to departure subject to pre-booking seats.)
How do I receive my travel documents?
Documentation is sent via email; if you would like all documentation posted this can be arranged at an additional charge, please contact us to do so. Any late bookings can be emailed or if you would like a hard copy we can arrange for special delivery at a charge.
My passport is valid for 3 months, can I travel on it?
