Flights Coordinated With Your Vacation
With Cosmos, think of your entire vacation as one-stop shopping. Rather than spending hours researching flights to coordinate with your vacation start and end dates, let us handle the work. And when we book your flights, if there are any changes to your vacation schedule, we make the air changes for you. As a completely independent company, we have no ties to any one airline. We negotiate the lowest possible airfares with the world's finest carriers on your behalf.
Cosmos offers 2 air options - Flex Air and Instant Purchase Air. Flex Air allows flexibility if you want to make changes to your vacation schedule. Instant Purchase Air may offer additional airline options but has more restrictions. Some vacations may only offer one Air type option.
Low Air-Inclusive Prices & Free Airport Transfers
Regardless which air option you choose when you book your Cosmos vacation air-inclusive, the transfer to and from the airport to your start and end hotel is included (on published departure and return dates). This can be a substantial savings and give you peace of mind. Airport transfers for US and Canada tours will not be included and are not available for purchase.
Land-only vacation clients who make their own air arrangements on regularly scheduled direct or nonstop flights (not chartered flights) into terminals may purchase our airport transfer service.
Airport transfers can be arranged when you purchase extra nights before or after the vacation. Transfers cannot be provided when you join late or leave early. Flight information for air purchased separately from Cosmos will be required at time of booking the extra night transfers and must be provided to Cosmos prior to final payment.
You can e-mail Cosmos your air itinerary with arrival and departure flights and dates with your invoice number (use the 'Existing Reservation' option on the e-mail form). Flight details should be sent apart from other correspondence. Flight details and payment must be received no later than final payment. Time and terminal limitations are provided.
Transfers will be provided only if confirmed by Cosmos. Look for confirmation of your transfer in the travel documents.
Cosmos air options: Flex-Air and Instant Purchase Air. Flex-Air allows flexibility if you want to make changes to your vacation schedule. Instant Purchase Air may offer additional airline options but has more restrictions. Some vacations may only offer one Air type option. Air Inclusive price quotes will include all government-imposed taxes and fees applicable at the time of booking and will be shown as a Total Amount. (Please see “Applicable Airfare Taxes & Fees” section that follows).

Your eTicket receipt is published within your travel documents and will be sent two to three weeks prior to vacation departure. Based on availability, a service charge per reservation will be added for documents requested in advance, early air ticketing, and/or for 2 day delivery or for delivery to multiple addresses. For late bookings, travel documents, including the eTicket receipt, are sent after final payment is received. Special service requests such as special meals may be done by your Travel Agent directly with the air carrier.
Please retain your ticket copy and boarding passes in the event you need them later for proof of your flights (to accumulate frequent flyer miles, for example). We are unable to supply ticket copies after your return. Some fare types may restrict or only allow partial mileage account accrual.
We Also Accept Your Reservation on a Land-Only Basis
While booking your vacation air-inclusive gives you all the advantages described, you can also choose the land-only option.
Book Early to Get Even Better Prices Than Those Listed
The earlier you book, the better the rates will be, as availability of the best airline rates is at its best. For up-to-the-minute air-inclusive prices, look online or ask a Travel Consultant. Any changes and/or revisions to airline flights may affect your air-inclusive price.
