Skip to main content

This is where you will find answers to our most frequently asked questions. If there should still be any questions left, don't hesitate to contact us.

How much do your booking services cost?

Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Our booking services are 100% free. By booking with us, you will pay the same (or less) than booking directly with the lodge or adventure operator. 

How does Fly Out Travel make money?

We earn a small commission from any Alaska lodge bookings that we make, paid for by the lodges. This is how most travel agencies operate today. 

Can I pay with a credit card?

Most lodge prices reflect a 3% discount for cash/check payment. In general, credit cards are not accepted. 

Can you accommodate most budgets?

Yes, we usually have options for any reasonable budget. Some people underestimate the costs of doing business in the Alaska bush. Airplanes, goods, and transport expenses add-up in remote Alaska.

What is the cancellation policy?

We adhere to each individual lodge's cancellation policy. With that, please see our Terms & Conditions page for more information.


What do you recommend for gratuity?

Gratuity for staff & guides is typically not included in the the cost you pay for the lodge or adventure. Gratuity is always at the discretion of the guest. But the standard recommendation is 10-20% of the lodge package price.

Should I get travel insurance?

We cannot recommend this strongly enough. Our go to travel insurance provider is Global Rescue.  There are many options out there so shop around to find a policy that best suits your specific needs.
