Price Promise - Promising you better value
With our Price Promise, you can purchase our airfares with confidence. After completing a booking on our website, if you find an identical fare at a lower price on a South African travel agency website (in South African Rand), simply lodge a price match claim with us by midnight UTC on the day of your purchase, and you'll get the fare difference refunded.
Our Price Promise applies to:
- Bookings made on www.cathaypacific.com/za that depart from South Africa.
- Bookings paid and ticketed in full in South African Rand.
- An itinerary only with flights operated by Cathay Pacific Airways and/or Cathay Dragon that originate in South Africa.
- Claims where the price on a third-party website, inclusive of all taxes, fees and surcharges, is lower than what you paid on www.cathaypacific.com/za by minimum ZARR200 and maximum ZARR1500 for Economy, Premium Economy, Business and First Classes.
Kindly read the detailed Terms and Conditions before you make a claim for a refund.
How to make a claim for a refund:
1. Take an unedited, full screenshot of the fare with the price difference. It should include the website address, company logo, full itinerary with flight numbers, total costs of the booking fees and charges as well as a timestamp (with date and time clearly visible.)
2. Complete the claim form.
3. Submit the form and email the screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight of the same calendar day you purchased your ticket.
4. Receive a refund of the price difference via the payment method originally used to purchase the ticket.
Make a booking

4) The comparison of all fees including card fees equivalent to those used to make the booking is also covered under our promise.
5) A match in airfares will not be accepted in the following circumstances:
