- Airlines retain the right to reschedule flight times, route, change or cancel flights or itineraries independent of and without prior intimation to DreamTravelYaari.

- The baggage allowance on given fare is as per the terms decided by the airline, and DreamTravelYaari has no role to play in the same. Some of the fares shown in the booking flow are “hand baggage fares” which do not entitle the User for free check in baggage and therefore the User will be required to pay separately for check in baggage. The prices for adding check-in baggage to a booking may vary from airline to airline. The User is advised to contact the airlines for detailed costs.
- Some airlines enter into "code share" agreements with other Airlines. This means that on certain routes, the airline carrier selling or marketing the flight ticket does not fly its own aircraft to that destination. Instead, it contracts or partners with another airline to fly to that destination. The partner airline is listed as "operated by" in the booking flow.
- If your flight is a code share, it will be disclosed to you in the booking process and prior to payment.
- DreamTravelYaari will disclose any such code-share arrangements to the User, only when the ticketing airline discloses it to DreamTravelYaari in the first place.

The processing time for refunds may vary depending on the mode of payment, bank etc. The refund shall be processed after deducting the DreamTravelYaari service fee which is independent of the convenience fee as mentioned above.
- The refund will be credited to the same account from which the payment was made. For example, if the User used a credit card, DreamTravelYaari will make an appropriate charge reversal to the same credit card; like-wise if the User used a debit card, DreamTravelYaari will credit the money to the same debit card.
