FAQ and Help


How do I get my flight details, including times?

Prior to your departure we will send you your Travel Documents confirming party information, flight numbers and e-ticket number. This information will be viewable from your secure Manage My Booking portal

Can I choose my flight seats?

Your Travel Specialist will advise you about securing seat allocation at the time of making your holiday booking with us. 

Flight seat booking rules vary by airline and departure date. Your confirmation email, sent to you at the time of booking contains full details as they apply to your particular booking and airline. 

Will you send me physical flight tickets?

No. Sorry but airlines don't issue physical, printed tickets anymore. You'll receive an e-ticket.

Do I have to supply Advance Passenger Information?

All airlines now require passengers to provide Advance Passenger Information (API). 

Advance Passenger Information (API) is simply a process whereby you the passenger are required to provide information to your airline or travel company, prior to travel. The information you need to give normally includes details of your Passport such as your passport number, the name on your passport, gender and date of birth.

The procedures for providing this information will vary depending upon the airline you are traveling with, but in most circumstances you will be required to provide this information direct to the airline yourself. 

Do I have to supply Secure Flight Passenger Data?

UK Citizens traveling to the United States are required to provide the airline they are traveling on with Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD). As your travel provider Ocean Holidays will pass your SFPD information directly to your airline, so you don’t have to do this. 

Does my infant child get their own seat?

When traveling with an infant under two, you can choose to have the infant seated on your lap or for it to have its own seat.

If the infant is to be seated on your lap, you will be charged an infant fare, but if the infant has its own seat, a child fare. Sky cots are made available by our airline partners on a first come first served basis.

For specific information about what infant accessories you can take on your flights, please contact your airline directly.

Also, please see our dedicated FAQ section all about Traveling With Children.

If this happens, please contact our Customer Service Team via your Manage My Booking portal and we will guide you through your available options.

Can I check in online?

We recommend that where possible you check in online within 24 hours prior to your departure in order to print your boarding passes and obtain current flight information. Please note if you are traveling on a ‘group booking’ you will not be able to check-in online.

How do connecting flights work?

As a rule, you will not need to collect your luggage and check it in again. However, this can be subject to change by your airline and is also dependent upon the airport's security processes at the time of travel.

It's always best to confirm details like this with your airline at the check-in desk, at the time of travel.
