Fraud Prevention Measures
Barakeh Travel Inc, as a leading consolidator to the Middle East, is committed to offering competitive fares to our customers residing in the US. We know many of our customers have relatives and friends abroad who may want to visit our customers in the US or even relocate permanently. That is why we offer competitive one-way and round-trip fares from a wide selection of departure points abroad. Recently, some of our customers have become victims of a scam.
Scammers are increasingly sophisticated, and it no longer takes a "fool" to be a victim. Perpetrators of fraudulent campaigns invest careful time with their victims, setting up a relationship of trust, confidence, and if possible, even romantic involvement. Once a close relationship is established, a request or plea for help is usually made. Typically, a state of emergency is created and our clients are asked for help with visa, airline ticket, a large inheritance, or other legal problems. It is possible to have a real, honest, and lasting relationship with someone from abroad. Nevertheless, no matter where you met and what the circumstances are, we strongly encourage all our customers to be cautious when purchasing tickets for individuals residing abroad. Due to the extreme level of scam activity in some countries, we strongly advise a background check. Barakeh Travel Inc requires credit card verifications for all third party credit card transactions. It protects us against daily fraud attempts. We are very unhappy to learn about any fraud that affects our customers. This is why we are sharing this recent experience with you - our customers. We hope that this information is helpful and wish your friends and relatives a safe flight and satisfying stay in the US.
Please note: The billing address must match exactly the address on the credit card statement. Those customers who wish to purchase tickets for relatives or friends will be contacted by Barakeh Travel’s billing support representative to initiate a three-way call to authorize the purchase directly with the issuing bank. Some credit and/or debit cards may have daily limits; please ensure with your bank that you have sufficient funds for the purchase of your ticket(s). The fares are not guaranteed until the tickets are issued.
The names of the passengers provided must match the names shown on the passports. Once the tickets are issued, they are non-transferable. Even a small mistake in the name can cause a major inconvenience for the passengers during their travel. Sometimes this mistake can even prevent the passengers from using their tickets. Remember that many of the deeply discounted fares are non-refundable. It is under all circumstances, all customers and/or passengers must confirm their travel detail that was sent by email. The passenger must call Barakeh Travel within 24 hours of issuing the ticket to make any changes due to errors. After 24 hours, passengers must be responsible for any associated fees to refund the tickets and purchase new tickets if necessary by the airline.
Collecting personal data
The TSA (TRANSPORTATION SECURITY ADMINISTRATION) requires us to transmit information collected from you. Providing this information is mandatory. Issuing your tickets will not be possible without this information. TSA may share information you provide with law enforcement or intelligence agencies or others under its records notice. For more on TSA privacy policies or to view the records notice and the privacy impact assessment, see TSA's web site at TSA.gov.
Change Of Aircraft En Route
Sometimes you must change aircraft en route even though your ticket may show only one flight number and have only one coupon for that flight. Further, in the case of some travel, one of your flights may not be identified at the airport by the number on your ticket, or it may be identified by other flight numbers in addition to the one on your ticket. At your request, the seller of this ticket will give you details of your change of aircraft, such as where it will occur and what aircraft types are involved.
Travel documents required for all tickets (paper, e-tickets, or paperless) include a valid Passport, which must be presented for all international flights. Some countries may require a visa and/or health care. It is the passenger's responsibility to have all necessary travel documents in possession at check-in. The passengers shall verify the visa requirements for all the stops as some of the countries may require a transit visa. Those passengers transiting via or connecting between the airports within the European Union - Schengen Zone may need a Schengen Entry visa. Traveling on a one-way ticket may be restricted. If you are traveling on a one-way ticket, it is your responsibility to make sure you are eligible. Barakeh Travel Inc agents do not advise passengers on visa requirements. Please contact the embassy of the country you are going to visit or transit through to get the up-to-date requirements.
In addition, passport and visa information may be obtained by contacting the Travel Advisory Section of the U.S. State Department at +1 202 647 5225 or by visiting the State Department's Web site at Travel.State.Gov.

General Rules and Conditions
Fare Restrictions and Rules
1. Cancellations and refunds:
Cancellation and refunds before departure not permitted.
Cancellation and refunds after departure not permitted.
Changes before departure not permitted.
Changes after departure not permitted.
The above-confirmed tickets are non-reroutable and non-transferable.
If fare rules allow refunds and/or exchanges, a $ 250.00 Barakeh Travel Inc fee will be charged to process any refund and/or exchange request. This fee will be collected in addition to the penalties charged directly by the airline and/or recalled by the airline from Barakeh Travel Inc. Reservations for tickets to be refunded and/or exchanged must be canceled at least 24 hours prior to scheduled departure - NO SHOW ticket(s) will not be processed for a refund and/or exchange. The cancellation of a reservation does not automatically initiate a refund. All exchanges can be made only prior to scheduled departure.
After the tickets are issued, any changes or refunds are subject to the restrictions of the fares used. Generally speaking, discounted fares are more restrictive and in many cases, they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Please pay attention to the fare restrictions of your tickets. If you need more flexibility with your tickets in terms of refunds and exchanges, please consult your agent and request a less restrictive fare. Airlines offer a wide range of fares, including those that offer exchanges and refunds without any restrictions and penalties. The airlines strictly follow their policies and do not permit exchanges or refunds in case the fare restrictions do not allow it. The airlines determine the restrictions of the fares, and BARAKEH TRAVEL INC has no power to override these restrictions.
The airlines change their fares and the availability of the seats on a daily basis. Most airlines file their fares with the Airline Tariff Publishing Company. These file updates can occur several times a day. The airlines manage their seat inventory through their reservation systems. In most cases, they decrease or increase the seat inventory (and thus the fare availability) based on many factors which may include for example reservation cancellations or load factors on certain flights. BARAKEH TRAVEL INC cannot predict the fare value nor can it guarantee that the airlines will not release cheaper seat inventory. Once the tickets are issued, they are subject to fare restrictions.
The airline(s) may require you to pay additional fees at the airport if your baggage exceeds certain limitations, such as the number, weight, size, and dimensions of your bags. Some airlines do not offer any free baggage allowance. Baggage allowance policies and baggage fees associated with checked or carry-on baggage vary widely and are subject to change by the airlines at any time. Be advised to check directly with the airline for the latest baggage allowance information. Barakeh Travel’s agent is not responsible for notifying the passenger of the baggage allowance. Thus, the passenger is responsible for any applicable fees associated with the Baggage allowance.
Barakeh Travel Inc strongly recommends travel insurance. At this time the flight departure and arrival times are correct. However, airlines frequently change times and/or flight numbers. BARAKEH TRAVEL INC is not responsible for any schedule changes. Please, contact the airlines to verify the current flight information and reconfirm your flights 72 hours prior to your scheduled departure. Failure to use any reservations may result in an automatic cancellation of all continuing and return reservations and suspension of the tickets; contact BARAKEH TRAVEL INC or the airline prior to your scheduled departure to cancel your existing reservation and retain the original value of the ticket if applicable. Check-in time recommended for all international flights is a minimum of 3 hours, even if you are traveling on a domestic carrier to another airport and connecting to your international flight. Travel documents required for all tickets (paper, e-tickets, or paperless) include a valid Passport, which must be presented for all international flights. Some countries may require a Visa and/or health care. It is the passenger's responsibility to have all the necessary travel documents in the possession at check-in. In the event of non-reconfirmation, or visa/passport issues, BARAKEH TRAVEL INC shall not be responsible for denied boarding. BARAKEH TRAVEL INC is not responsible for transportation to and from airports and between airports and does not provide hotel accommodation.
Once the tickets are issued, BARAKEH TRAVEL INC is unable to make any changes. All changes are subject to fare restrictions and rules once the tickets are issued. BARAKEH TRAVEL INC reserves the right to charge service fees already included in the above total. The customer understands all the stipulations, rules, and conditions pertaining to the purchased tickets. The fares are not guaranteed until ticketed.
