    About Travstar Booking Requests
    There are some things a computer can't do.
    We love helping people plan their holidays and we want to make sure we get it right.
    Some holiday packages can be quite complicated with multiple tours and accommodation, pick-up times and extras.
    That's why every booking made through a Travstar Website is checked by our local consultants.
    It takes a little bit longer to get your tickets but we want to make sure everything is going to run smoothly for you.

    How long wil it take to get my tickets?
    Our team are alerted to new booking requests as they come in. During office hours you can expect to have your tickets within an hour or two.
    After office hours your tickets may take up to 12 hours to arrive.
