SEAT SELECTION NOTE:

Seat selection note:
The package with Vancouver flights in our group allotment rate does not permit advance seat selection because it is part of a Group (special fare). At time of ticketing, a little more than a month prior departure, Exotik Journeys will notify the airline which passengers are travelling together, in an effort to have them seated together. We can guarantee the seat on board but not the seating (seat number). There are no exceptions to the seating rules allowed with this promotion and Exotik Journeys cannot be held responsible if passengers do not get their preferred seat.
Thank you for your understanding.
