Group Bookings

We will always do our best to get you to your destination on time. However, the nature of flying is inherently unpredictable. Sometimes we will need to delay or cancel flights due to natural disasters, bad weather, technical and other issues. At all times, your safety is our number one priority. For these reasons, to the extent permitted by law, we do not guarantee flight times and schedules, and they do not form part of your contract with us. If you are travelling for a particular purpose, you should carefully consider your travel plans and ensure you allow plenty of extra time when booking in case of disruptions. We strongly recommend travel insurance.

As Tigerair Australiais a low-cost carrier with restricted operational flexibility, our ability to re-accommodate you in the event of a delay or cancellation may be more constrained, but we will always do our best to get you away as quickly as possible having regard to the circumstances of the disruption.

If you've got 10 or more people to book for, let a Tigerair Travel Advisor sort it for you. Here's just some of the good stuff our group booking service offers:

  • One flight price for all passengers (no hassles with potential price differences on different seats)
  • Low 25% deposit
  • Name confirmation 14 days prior to departure
