Passengers are requested to conform with this time frame if they wish to avoid cancellation fees.

The 24 hours cancellation policy doesn’t apply to travelers who are traveling between Trinidad and Tobago.  


If you cancel your flight 24 hours within the booking, there will be a cancellation fee charged to you. If your booking is refundable, the remaining value of the booking will be refunded after deducting the cancellation fee. However, if you have got a non-refundable booking, your ticket value will be forfeited and you will not get a refund. Passenger’s cancellation fee is not only determined by the fare rule/type but is also determined by the date of departure, the number of tickets, points of departure, etc.


If a passenger is canceling because of any extenuating circumstances like a death in a family, sickness, any medical issues, judicial order, strikes, government order, etc., there will be no cancellation fee charged to him/her. The passenger only has to give the documents which the airline will ask for as evidence.


If the airline delays or cancels a passenger’s flight for any reason, the airline may charge the passenger’s schedule, and the passenger’s decision to accept it is entirely up to the passenger. They can choose to accept schedule changes or request a refund/credit.
Caribbean Airlines doesn’t allow delays for more than 4 hours until and unless there is some technical issue or air traffic. And even if there is a delay, the airline will do their best to keep their passengers comfortable with food and water. Lavatory and medical facilities will be given in times of need. There will be an update every 30 minutes.

In a case like this, the airline can name some factual situations as the reason for cancellation. For instance, there can be a natural calamity, state emergency, security concerns, operation failure, lack of passengers, issues with the pilots, mechanical error, etc.


If any passenger does not cancel before the departure time, regardless of their fare type, they will be marked as a no-show. No passenger is eligible for a refund if they are marked as a no-show. The value of the ticket will be confiscated and you will not get anything, make sure to cancel before the date and time of departure according to your schedule.



The airline allows eligible passengers to request a refund in the way it was booked. In other words, if you booked through a third party, a request has to be made to that third party, and if you booked with the airline, the airline will make the refund for you.

The refund amount depends on the type of flight rate, cancellation time and date, etc.  Please be informed that airport and security taxes are refundable to all types of fares. However, service charges are not refundable.  

If there is any refund owed to you by the airline, the latter will make the refund to your account with which you booked.
