Competitive rates

We offer low airfare for all destinations from cities across the United States. As an independent company, we have no ties to any one airline. We have negotiated the lowest possible airfares with the world’s finest carriers on behalf of our travelers. The earlier you book, the better the rates will be due to availability and limited inventory.

Know your flights & fly with fellow travelers

Some organizations don’t let you know what flights you’re on until less than 30 days prior to departure. With AESU, you know at time of booking. We’ll also attempt to book you with others traveling on your group so you can get to know them beforehand.

Special orders don’t upset us

AESU can book flights for you even if you want to fly earlier or return later from overseas. Just contact our travel experts—they’ll be happy to assist with special requests.

We offer flexibility

With AESU we offer the flexibility of paying closer to departure without rate fluctuations and being able to easily change reservations prior to ticketing. When not booking your airfare through AESU, you are often required to pay full fare at the time of booking (instant purchase) and tickets are completely non-refundable and non-changeable. Also some special fares are only available for short periods and not for high season travel.

Hassle-free – we take care of all the details

We’re your very own airline liaison and we’ll keep you up-to-date on any airline schedule changes. If any schedule or flight changes, we take care of rebooking for you.

Freedom of choice

By not including the cost of international airfare in your tour package, you still have the possibility of getting your own airfare, for instance, when you have a Frequent Flier mileage ticket. The choice is yours.

Applicable taxes and fees

Applicable Taxes and Fees (Airfare & Charges Not Included in the Price)Taxes and fees include a September 11th fee up to $10, passenger facility charges of up to $18, Federal domestic flight segment fees of up to $3.50 per segment and U.S. and International arrival and departure and other government imposed fees from $375-$900 depending on your itinerary. The total airfare price, the base airfare price, and the applicable government taxes and fees are broken-out line-by-line and shown while booking online and on the invoice after your travel is booked.

Since seats for our low-cost airfares fill quickly, we urge you to book early. Air tickets will be received two to three weeks prior to departure. For any late bookings, tickets are sent overnight after final payment is received. It is advised to contact your air carrier for special service requests, such as seat assignments and special meals, or, if applicable, to advise your frequent flyer number. Please retain your ticket copy in the event you need it later for proof of your flight; we are unable to supply ticket copies after your return.

Please be advised that electronic tickets will be issued for all flights. Taxes and fees are extra and subject to change and are not guaranteed until full land and airfare are received.

Flight delays – all airports:

In the event that airline schedule changes or delays force you to miss your airport transfer, just make your way to the first hotel listed on your hotel list. Many shuttle services are available as well as taxi or train options. As airline delays are beyond the control of AESU, additional expenses, if incurred, will be borne by the tour participant. (Save receipts for possible reimbursement by airline.) AESU is not responsible if an airline cancels, reschedules, or delays a flight for any reason. If you miss your departure flight, it is your responsibility to work with the airline on which you are ticketed to reach your destination. AESU is not responsible for any additional expenses you may incur prior to joining your trip and AESU is not responsible for and will not provide any refund for portions of trips missed due to canceled, rescheduled, or delayed flights
