Almost every airline in the world has a group department that will provide pricing for parties of ten or more people traveling from one origin city to a destination city. Each airline has their own policies surrounding who can shop for group airfare as well as the terms and conditions that apply to securing the group airfare which is all set up under a special group contract.
Generally, group contracts allow groups to reserve seats at a guaranteed rate by paying one or more fees (booking/deposit) within one to two weeks of procuring the contract. Final payment is typically due thirty to forty-five days in advance of the first flight. Group contracts allow other unique capabilities that differ from booking published airfare on an online travel agency like Expedia, Orbitz, or Travelocity.
Group airfare is mainly shopped by tour operators, student or youth group organizers, travel agencies, travel management companies and other organizations. You can perform a web search for your favorite airline and the term “group airfare” to locate the contact information for an airline’s group department. However, we do not recommend contacting an airline directly without airline expertise as it can take a significant time investment to shop group rates and select a group contract.
