Mercy Ships Airline Ticket Refund policy
Due to the need to remain flexible in our ship’s schedule, we strongly recommend that all crew purchase changeable and/or refundable tickets and/or travel insurance.
As such, Mercy Ships will not offer refunds or financial assistance with extra costs incurred for changing or cancelling airlines tickets, due to a change to the ship’s schedule.
RECOMMENDED TRAVEL AGENTS
Listed below are several Travel Agencies that Mercy Ships recommends; many offer humanitarian discounts. If you require a letter of proof that you are coming on a humanitarian trip, please use your acceptance letter or contact Human Resources.
We have several corporate airline accounts which allow the individual flying to earn their own air miles while Mercy Ships earns points at the same time, which we use to cut the cost of some of our corporate air travel.
