Will we be sat together on our family flight?

If you want to 100% guarantee your family is sat together, we offer seat selection for a small fee at the time of booking on some airlines. Otherwise, please make sure you check-in as early as possible to give you the best chance of sitting together as a family on the aircraft. You can also contact Alternative Airlines after you've made the booking and we will try our best to get your family sat together by contacting the airline.

Can I get family bereavement flights?

Some airlines offer family bereavement flight discounts in the unfortunate event that you need to travel last minute because of the death of a family member. Visit our page on flight assistance for funerals and coffins for more information.
