Correct names & passport setails

Executive Travel require you to provide us with a copy of the front page of your passport, showing your correct name, date of birth, country of origin and passport number as these details have to be entered into your booking. We will not proceed with ticketing unless the booking matches the name on the passport. Most airlines will not allow name changes once the booking is completed and, if the correct details have not been entered, you could be denied boarding at check-in.

Visas & passport service

Executive Travel are able to help you with advice on renewing your passport and process any visa requirements you may require.

  • Remember that some countries require your passport be valid for at least six months after your expected date of travel.
  • Allow enough time in your trip planning to obtain visas required which can, in some cases, take time to be processed.

Executive Travel can keep your profile on file with all your details to help speed up the processes involved in booking your travel. We want you to have smooth sailing through your travel planning and booking processes.


Please contact Greer at Executive Travel to discuss your baggage requirements.

Frequent flyer details

Please advise Executive Travel of your frequent flyer details and ensure the details are identical to the information on your frequent flyer card(s). It's very important you retain your boarding passes and original ticket or electronic ticket confirmation, as this proof of travel will be required by airlines should any flights not automatically appear on your statement.

Not all fare types qualify for frequent flyer points or redemption of points. Please contact us at Executive Travel if you need clarification.


Seat numbers shown on your itinerary have been requested, however, the airline reserves the right to change them if necessary.

Contact details

Your safety while travelling is our priority. It is important we have an after-hours phone number for you in case we need to contact you due to flight cancellations, unexpected schedule changes or emergencies.

Fare quotes

Yachting New Zealand have a preferred supplier relationship with Air New Zealand. In line with this, Executive Travel will endeavour to give options and quote the best possible fare. The lower fares normally have strict conditions attached, particularly pertaining to advance purchase, changes and cancellation post ticketing and usually have to be ticketed immediately. Quotes are subject to change at any time due to changes, such as supplier increases, taxes or currency fluctuations until such time as a booking is confirmed.

Please contact us at Executive Travel with any questions or enquiries you may have. We’re here to help.
