BEST PRICE GUARANTEE (BPG)
In the unlikely event that you find a lower rate on Bright Star Corporation Ltd. or on any other Bangladeshi based website for the same itinerary prior midnight of booking with Bright Star Corporation Ltd. we will either cancel your current itinerary and provide you a full refund, or refund you the entire difference in price. You will need to provide documentation that all the elements of the lower offer, including, without limitation, the departure and arrival dates and locations, airline, class, fare, cancellation policy, hotel room, hotel rate, car class and any other material conditions are the same as the itinerary you booked with us and available for booking online. Once we’ve verified that the information provided meets the requirements of the BPG, we will process a full refund of the price difference between the lower offer and the price of the itinerary you booked with us, or, at your option, cancel the itinerary you booked with us and refund to you the entire amount paid. The following offers are not subject to this Best Price Guarantee: Military, Student, Government, Tour Operator Fares, Bulk Rate or an airline’s “Web Only” fare. Please see complete Best Price Guarantee terms and conditions for full details.
Notifying BSC Ltd. of a Best Price Guarantee Claim
You must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org along with competitor’s offer, name of competitor, and screenshots of flights actually available to be booked from a reputable Bangladesh website prior midnight after your Bright Star Corporation Ltd. booking to make a claim under the Best Price Guarantee. The lower rate must be available for booking at the time you contact us, as determined by our customer service representatives.
The Best Price Guarantee is available only if the lower priced offer matches exactly each and every element present in itinerary booked with us, – such as same, specific carrier or provider (including same class of service and refund policy), – the exact same dates and times of travel or service, the same airfare class, hotel room type, car class and any other material conditions as booked through Bright Star Corporation Ltd. The comparison must be with the same product stand-alone through another website. The Best Price Guarantee is not available for bookings on websites where the carrier booking details are unknown until after purchase, such as an auction website or a website offering opaque fares. You must meet all requirements imposed by the lower price offer (if any), including, without limitation, residency, regional and age-related requirements. The interpretation given by Bright Star Corporation Ltd. to these rules is final and binding.
Comparison rates must be available to the general public online.

For example, this does not include rates offered on membership program websites, corporate discounts or rates; group, charter, rewards program, incentive, meeting, convention, consolidator or interline prices; prices obtained via auction or similar process; or prices available only by using a coupon or other promotion not offered to the general public.

“Booking” – a negotiation process with the Travel Supplier carried out by you while using this Site for the purpose of obtaining one or more Service Elements that may result in a contract with the Travel Supplier at the time we receive full payment and accept your offer.
In order to complete a Booking the following steps are taken to ensure its validity:
When we place Service Elements on our Site, we are inviting you to make an offer for their purchase. You do not make this offer until you press “Book” on the payment page (entitled “Review Trip Details and Book”) of the Site.
Once you have done so you have made Bright Star Corporation Ltd. an offer (which cannot be withdrawn if you change your mind) to purchase the relevant Service Element(s) from the relevant Travel Supplier(s) (your “Booking”). We are free to accept your offer on behalf of the relevant Travel Supplier or to reject it, at our sole discretion.
The Bright Star Corporation Ltd email confirmation is NOT the contractual acceptance of the Booking, but merely an acknowledgement that we have received your offer. We will need to check the availability of the relevant Service Element(s).
If the relevant Service Element is available, your Booking will be processed. The contract pertaining to the relevant Booking is formed when payment in full has been received.
The contract between you and the relevant Travel Supplier will relate only to those Service Elements confirmed by email with ticket numbers in case of air or reservation numbers in case of hotels, cars or activities.
The terms of your Booking (such as price, availability and/or dates of travel) are not guaranteed until the contract is formed between you and the Travel Supplier and a ticket has been issued and/or a reservation has been made and confirmed by the Travel Supplier.
Please note that once you have completed the Booking stage you can only cancel or change the details (such as names or destinations) of your Booking at our sole discretion and in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
These Booking processes will apply to any of our individual Service Element’s Terms & Conditions set out below. The airline ticket Terms & Conditions, the hotel Terms & Conditions, the car rental Terms & Conditions, the attractions and services Terms & Conditions supplement any area not covered by the Booking process. We reserve the right to change the Booking process at any time, with changes automatically taking effect from the date such changes are posted on the Site.
At all times throughout your trip a government-issued photo ID is required for security checks at airports, hotels and car rental locations and may be required for attractions and other products as deemed necessary by the relevant Travel Suppliers.

Once you have made your Booking, you cannot transfer or change the name(s) or destination(s) listed in your Booking.

Additional fuel surcharges, security, baggage, seat reservation, hotel incidentals, and other applicable service charges may apply which will be charged by the relevant Travel Supplier at time of check-in. You are solely responsible for any such additional charges due to the Travel Supplier. If you have any questions about such charges, please contact the relevant Travel Supplier directly.
Prices quoted also do not include any additional flight fuel surcharges or other surcharges, which may be imposed from time to time by the relevant Travel Supplier or authorities, all of which must be paid by you.

You may be required by the relevant Travel Supplier(s) to present a valid credit or debit card at the time of check-in at the hotel and/or at the pick-up location of the car rental company to provide confirmation of authorized card usage and/or to secure any additional charges. The cardholder must be a traveler listed on your Booking.
All offers, prices, and conditions of sale may be subject to:
A reservation is not complete until confirmed/ticketed. To protect our customers, we verify with the credit/debit card company that the billing address and credit card verification number you provided to us is accurate and that your debit/charge will be accepted. Until such information is verified, the fare is subject to change. We are not responsible for any transaction that is declined based upon a credit/debit card that is declined by the issuing company or a travel provider or if, for any reason, the debit/credit card billing address and/or credit card verification number cannot be verified in a timely manner, nor are we responsible for any changes in fare or any other charges that may occur during our verification process. In the event the fare selected is not available an approval code may have been issued on your credit card. If the transaction is not completed the approval code may temporarily credit the amount from your bank account.
OUR FEES AND EXCEPTIONS
In addition to each Travel Supplier’s cost and fees including Bank/Payment Gateway Charges, Bright Star Corporation Ltd. may charge a service fee as described below. All Bright Star Corporation Ltd. fees are charged on a per-person or per-ticket basis and are non-refundable.
CHANGES TO FLIGHTS ALREADY PURCHASED
Any and all changes made to the itinerary are restricted and are subject to airline fare rules, whichever is more restrictive; most of our tickets, hotels, cars, packages and cruises do not allow any date or name changes after the booking is completed. Bright Star Corporation Ltd. does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, any bookings or reservations made or confirmed to you in the event that the original itinerary has been changed by the supplier pursuant to customer’s request or supplier’s schedule changes.
CANCEL AND EXCHANGE
Most of our airline tickets are 100% non-refundable. . In certain cases, where the airline may allow cancellations, a credit may be valid towards a future ticket purchase by the same traveler on the same airline. Usually the credit issued by the airline supplier has a specific expiration date, after which it cannot be used. We encourage you to discuss additional restrictions attached to your credit with a customer service agent. All such bookings where the cancellation may be permitted must be cancelled prior to the scheduled departure time of the first flight segment by calling our customer service center. We do not guarantee any cancellation. When you are ready to make your new booking and wish to use your airline credit, you will be required to the pay fare difference (if any), applicable airline penalties and any applicable Bright Star Corporation Ltd. post-ticketing fees. All such changes are governed by each airline’s fare rules, policies and procedures, which are not under our control.
No additional representation is made for our exchange fees except that an agent will assist you in locating your desired new flights and attempt to re-book the new flights based on availability and other factors.
As per our Compassion Exception Policy (CEP), we offer Special Discounts for Military, Natural Disasters, Bereavement, Customers with Visual Impairments, Senior Citizens and Youth. Please review our Compassion Exception Policy (CEP) in detail.
MULTIPLE AIRLINE ITINERARIES
If your itinerary includes flights operated by more than one airline, please read carefully each such airline’s terms and conditions, which can be found on each such airline’s website. Each such airline will have its own restrictions, rules and fees. If one of these flights is affected by an airline change (e.g. cancellation or rescheduling) that causes a Customer to make changes to the other flight, the Customer may be responsible for any fees or ticket cost incurred for making changes to the unaffected flight. Such airlines may charge their own fees for changes, refunds, or if exchanges are requested. You are responsible for complying with each airline’s terms and conditions, which may differ (for example, check-in times and limits on baggage size/weight). It is advisable you print your outbound and return portions of your e-ticket confirmation for all flights prior to travelling. You may be asked for proof of your return ticket at check-in.
CANCEL AND REFUND
Most of our airline tickets, hotels, pre-paid car rentals, vacation packages and service fees are non-refundable prior to midnight of booking. All cancellations must be done over the email only. We can accept refund requests only if the following conditions have been met:
We are unable to provide a specific time line for how long it may take for this requested refund to be processed. All refund requests are processed in a sequential format. Once you have provided our customer service agent with your cancellation request, we will then send you an email notification that your request has been received. This notification does not automatically qualify you for a refund. This only provides you with an acknowledgement of your request and provides you with a tracking number. Upon receipt of your request we will work with the suppliers such as airlines, hotels, car-rental companies to generate a waiver based on airline and other supplier rules and notify you of the supplier decision. Our services fees associated with the original travel reservation or booking are not refundable. Please note that we are dependent on the suppliers for receiving the requested refunds. Once the refund has been approved by the supplier it may take additional time for this to appear on your credit card statement. Generally, all suppliers will charge a penalty for refund. This entire process may take 60-90 working days from receipt of your request to receiving credit on your statement. Apart from the airlines and other suppliers refund penalties, Bright Star Corporation Ltd. will charge a post-ticketing services fee, as applicable. All refund fees are charged on per ticket per person basis. These fees will only be assessed if a refund has been authorized by the supplier or a waiver has been received and when the airline/supplier rules permit such refunds. If such refund is not processed by the supplier, we will refund you our post-ticketing service fees applicable to your agent assisted refund request, but not our booking fees for the original travel reservation or booking.
