As a facilitator, ixigo has no control or authority over the logistics of the airlines and therefore is not liable for any loss, direct or incidental, that a User may suffer due to change in details or cancellation of a booked flight. Any grievances, if any, will be handled and decided directly by the concerned airline.

In such an event, the airline cancellation policy will be applicable.

Different tickets on the same airline may carry different limitations or include different services and price, as the case may be.
