You need to provide Advance Passenger Information (API) before you go on holiday. It's also called APIS, Secure Flight or e-Borders. In a nutshell, this is information from your passport that's required by the government of the country you're travelling to. Travel O Rama also needs this information for Aviation Security purposes.

What you need to do If you've got a severe nut allergy, you'll need to contact the respective airlines at least 4 days before you fly. You'll also need to let the cabin crew know when you board the plane. How we can help If we're aware of your allergy, the cabin crew will make an announcement on the flight asking passengers not to eat any nut products. What's more, we won't sell any nut products from the in flight bar service. However, we can't guarantee a nut-free environment. Flights with other airlines Most airlines offer a cafe-style trolley service on board with a range of snacks and drinks.
Yes. You can bring a pushchair or pram on your flight at no extra cost. What’s more, you can take it right up to the plane door, and when you get to your destination, it’ll be waiting for you in Luggage Reclaim.
You can use things like MP3 players, e-books, smartphones, and other handheld personal electronic devices at any time during your flight, unless you're told otherwise by the crew - as long as they're switched to 'Flight Safe Mode' or 'Airplane Mode'. That said, please make sure you listen carefully to the safety briefing by the cabin crew. If you're carrying larger devices like laptops and larger tablets, you'll be able to use them during the flight, but they'll need to be switched off for take-off and landing and stowed away. You'll need to take these items out of your hand luggage before you get to the security search point. This is because they'll need extra screening. If any of your electronic devices can't be switched to 'Flight Safe' or 'Airplane Mode', they'll need to be switched off completely throughout the flight. Electronic cigarettes You're not allowed to use electronic cigarettes on the plane at all, although they can be carried in hand luggage.
We always do our very best to make sure to inform that your flight is on time, and having said that, sometimes things do go wrong, and in these cases, we'll try to make sure any disruption to your journey is kept to a minimum.
