Private (Student & Humanitarian) airfares quoted are NET and you will add your commission on top. Published airfares may or may not be commissionable, but you can add a service fee. A small number of private airfares reflect a cash discount. This discount is forfeited if you purchase by credit card (the increase will be 3.5%). Taxes and fees (including fuel surcharges) will be determined at the time of booking, but due to the volatility of fuel costs, may be repriced at time of ticketing. Additional information may include booking class, routing, minimum/maximum stay, flight restrictions and delivery fees. All rates are subject to change until issued.
You’ll need the passport spelling of the passenger’s name. You will be advised of the payment due date when you book a student or humanitarian reservation. Published airfares must be purchased on the same day of booking. We email the itinerary each time you book and each time you change the booking. It is imperative that you review the email for accuracy, as changes can be difficult and time-consuming.
If you do not purchase your booking, it will auto-cancel by the due date. You can purchase your booking by paying for it online or by calling our reservations team. *IMPORTANT* Once payment is applied, you are under full penalty for any cancelation or changes to the reservation.
- Purchasing it online. If you made the booking online, it will be in the My Bookings. You will see payment options on the left.
- Call or chat reservations. You may call reservations at 952-886-7667 or 866-650-6111 or chat one of our agents from afcnet.com to apply payment to your existing reservation. You will receive a payment authorization email at the time of payment. You must reply to the email authorizing the payment transaction.
NOTE: If you are paying by credit card, you must be able to provide a faxed copy of the card (front and back) along with a copy of the cardholder’s driver’s license or passport and signature, upon request, if further payment verification is needed by AFCNet.
Another option is Electronic Payment, also called direct payment, which is an ACH (Automated Clearing House) debit to a bank account. It’s effectively the same as writing a check, but much more convenient, more secure than using a credit card, and no more information about your account is released than when writing a check. This is a free option, and in order to have this option on your account, please fill out the enrollment form and fax it to us.
**AFCNet reserves the right to impose more restrictive payment practices for departures 2 weeks or less at the time of purchase.
E-ticket receipts are emailed immediately after the tickets have been issued. In most cases, tickets are issued almost immediately, but you can expect it to happen by end of day if payment is processed successfully.
Important: You or your client should reconfirm flights with the airline 72 hours before departure each way. Last minute schedule changes may occur.
Commission checks are mailed to you within two weeks of ticket issuance.
This can easily be done in your My Bookings file without waiting on hold. View the booking and then click “Request a change to this booking”. Select the desired option. If you need additional help, contact our Support Team.
For voluntary exchanges, refunds, and name corrections, AFC Net charges $50 per person in addition to any airlines fees.
For involuntary refunds, AFC Net charges a $25 fee per person.
There is no charge for schedule change acceptance or voids.
Eligible passengers: Passengers must be current students or faculty members. The airline may ask for proof of student eligibility. Passenger will be required to show valid student id or faculty id. Passengers not in possession of such documentation will be denied boarding or required to pay the full fare for the flight.
Eligible passengers: Passengers must be flying for the purposes of a missionary/humanitarian reason. Prior to ticketing, AFCNet requires the Organization’s 501-c3 number and Organization details. The airline may ask for proof of trip purpose. Passengers not in possession of such documentation may be denied boarding or required to pay the full fare for the flight. Individuals must be in possession of the non-profit organizations letter detailing the purpose of the trip.
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) handles all security watch-list screenings for airlines. Secure Flight is a program implemented to provide uniform watch-list matching in order to enhance security of air travel. As a result, passengers are required to provide the following information for every flight. This data will be transmitted to TSA, who will then perform watch-list matching to prevent individuals on the No Fly List from boarding an aircraft, and also to identify individuals on the Selectee List for enhanced screening. By implementing a central watch-list matching system, the program gives a fair and consistent matching process across all airlines and reduces the chance of being misidentified. The program also offers an improved redress process so that those who are mistakenly matched to the watch-list can avoid subsequent problems.
- Full name as it appears on passenger’s government-issued ID
- Date of birth
- Redress Number (if applicable)
- Known Traveler Number (if applicable)
Failure to provide this information may result in the airline cancelling your ticket.

International Group Air
A group is a minimum of 10 passengers departing and returning on the same flights from a single domestic gateway traveling to the same international destination. Flexibility is the key in getting the lowest prices. Weekend travel often carries a surcharge.
** For groups of 10-20 passengers there is an alternate option. See the documentation for Large Party below.
To guarantee a group rate, a deposit is due 10 days from the date of confirmation. A cancel fee will be assessed if a group completely cancels before the utilization date.
Preliminary names are due 90 days prior to the departure date. Final names are due 45 days prior to the departure. Some airlines charge fees for name changes after the final name list is submitted.
A utilization schedule will be provided upon group confirmation. The schedule will outline the specific dates when a deposit loss will occur if seats are cancelled. Most airlines require groups to use 90% of the seats they are holding 90 days prior to departure.
Cancellations between 89-0 days prior to departure will incur full deposit loss. Once ticketed most airlines have cancellation and change fees.
Final payment is due 35 days prior to the departure date.
Frequent flyer mileage does accrue on most AFCNet contracts.
Special meals and advance seating is possible 45 days prior to group departure.
These are guidelines to assist you with the group booking process. Specific rules vary by airline. An individual contract with details pertaining to your specific group will be provided once you receive a group quote.
For groups of 10-20 passengers, there is an alternate option. You can book them all as individuals on AFCNet.com (up to 9 passengers on a booking). You will get immediate access to pricing and schedules, and the fare is often lower than with a group booking. Just like individual bookings, exact names are needed at time of booking and full payment is due same day. This option is not available if you have any LH coded or operated flights. Other exceptions may apply as airlines change their policies at will. Note: If you book more than 20 passengers this way your booking may be canceled and subject to penalty.
At AFCNet, we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

CREDIT CARD AGREEMENT
In order to provide you with further protection, when certain transactions are determined to be high-risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it’s safe to process them. In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
CREDIT/DEBIT CARD PAYMENTS
- All credit cards must have a verifiable US Billing Address.
- All bookings and fares are not guaranteed until ticketed by the supplier.
- When you submit a credit or debit card for a purchase, we request an authorization for the amount of your anticipated transaction (placing a temporary “hold” on the funds). If for some reason we are unable to confirm your booking, you will not be charged and we will request that such hold be released by your credit or debit card bank; until then, funds subject to the hold will not be available to you for other purposes.
- If your credit card is declined for any reason, we will notify you within 72 hours. Simply submitting the credit card does not automatically guarantee ticketing.
- AFCNet bears no responsibility in the event your credit or debit card is not approved or charged.
- There can be many reasons why your credit or debit card may not have been approved or charged. Examples of these maybe: airline could not confirm the booking, fare increased since payment information was submitted and prior to ticketing; or sufficient funds not available on the credit card. In such instances where the fare may have increased, you will be provided with alternate options and you have the right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. When the booking is ticketed at the cost originally quoted to you the ticket becomes non-refundable and non-cancellable.
- AFCNet uses stringent safety measures for credit card payment processing. Fraudulent transactions, if any, are reported to airport security, airlines and other federal and state law enforcement.
- You agree to be liable for any and all credit card payments and you agree not to dispute charges after the purchase has been made and your tickets and/or other products have been delivered by email confirmation or have been shipped to you. You agree to reimburse AFCNet in cases of charge back or credit card disputes where you have genuinely purchased a service on our website.
- Online credit card transactions are authorized at the time a user or anyone acting on their behalf accepts these Terms & Conditions and continues with the purchase. This includes 3rd party credit cards where you are purchasing on behalf of your clients, the passengers.
- When certain transactions are determined to be high risk by our systems, we will not process such transactions unless our credit card verification team has determined that it’s safe to process them. In order to establish validity of such transactions, we may contact you or your bank.
Any credit card chargebacks for charges related to transactions performed on, or as a result of, using this site will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as deemed necessary by the owner of this site. As a user of this site, you agree to pay for any and all transactions you perform on this site, and to pay the owner of this site for any chargebacks related to transactions you make on this site.
CREDIT CARD DECLINES
If your credit card declines at the time of processing your transaction, we will make all efforts to notify you by email within 72 hours. The transaction will not be processed if your credit card has been declined. The fare and any other booking details are not guaranteed. If there is a fare change you have a right to cancel the booking at no cost to you. There will be no service fees charged for this.
SEATS, MEALS, FREQUENT FLYER AND OTHER SPECIAL REQUESTS
Please note that your seats, meals, frequent flyer and other special requests are requests only. We do not guarantee you will be assigned the seat(s) you have requested.
