Full payment via major credit card is required at the time of booking unless, in the case of flight/hotel or flight/hotel/car packages, a $25 non-refundable deposit to hold the booking through the end of the day (11:59 p.m. ET or 8:59 PT) has been made. Packages may only be held if the reservation is made through 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583), option 3, and will only be held through the end of the day (11:59 p.m. ET or 8:59 PT); this option is not available over jetblue.com.

Any changes/cancellations to confirmed bookings made after the end of the day (11:59 p.m. ET or 8:59 PT) will be assessed the full change and cancellation penalties stated below.
JetBlue requires at least three (3) days advance notice prior to departure date to process a Getaways reservation. Requests made within three days will be handled on a per request basis and are subject to Travel Supplier availability and confirmation. Adjustments made to Getaways package pricing will not be made after payment has been applied. After payment has been made, no subsequent rate reductions will be applied retroactively. JetBlue reserves the right to re-invoice a Getaways package should an error be made in computing the package price.
Changes and cancellations, where permitted, can only be made by calling 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583), option 3, or, for customers with hearing or speech impediments, by calling TTY/TDD 1-800-336-5530. No changes will be accepted by email or online. If you do not change or cancel your Getaways reservation in accordance with the applicable change/cancel policies (including but not limited to the JetBlue and Travel Supplier change/cancel policies) prior to your scheduled departure, then all money for the package is forfeited. The JetBlue change/cancellation policies and fees are as follows: A $100 fee per person applies for changes or cancellations, plus any applicable hotel penalties. Beginning with bookings made on June 25, 2012 and ending with bookings made on December 31, 2012 (11:59 PM ET), JetBlue will waive the JetBlue $100 per person change fee one time for the first change to a Getaways vacation package booking. (Any change to the booking is considered a change for purposes of the one-time JetBlue change fee waiver, including but not limited to a change in the room category, names of travelers, number of travelers, etc.) The JetBlue cancellation fee still applies, even to the first cancellation. Any hotel and other Travel Supplier change/cancel fees will still apply. For changes, where permitted, (even the first change for which the $100 per person fee is waived), there may also be an increase in the package price. Name changes are not permitted. By way of example and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a change in the number of occupants per room may change the price of the package. If any changes involve an increase in package price, payment will be required at the time of requested change. Changes are not effective until payment is received and availability is confirmed. If any change qualifies for a decrease in package price, the difference will be provided to you as a Getaways travel credit only; refunds will not be given. Changes are subject to JetBlue and Travel Supplier availability, and there is no guarantee that your requested change can or will be made. Changes must be made in accordance with and will be subject to the JetBlue and Travel Suppliers’ change policies. For Getaways packages purchased with a combination of TrueBlue Points with a monetary payment, no changes after your scheduled departure are permitted. Cancellations, where permitted, are for Getaways travel credits only; refunds will not be given for cancellations. Getaways credits are valid for one year from the date of cancellation and are good only towards Getaways vacation packages. Getaways vacation credits may not be used for air-only travel on JetBlue Airways. Cancellations must be made in accordance with and will be subject to the JetBlue and Travel Suppliers’ cancellation policies.
IN ADDITION TO THE TERMS HEREIN, EACH TRAVEL SUPPLIER (INCLUDING HOTEL, CAR, ETC.) MAY HAVE SPECIFIC CHANGE OR CANCELLATION POLICIES AND/OR FEES THAT APPLY TO YOUR GETAWAYS VACATION PACKAGE. Those terms are expressly incorporated herein. Call 1-800-JETBLUE, option 3 for details.

A credit card may be required for reservation or purchase.

TrueBlue and Other Promotions
If you are a registered TrueBlue member, you will earn six (6) TrueBlue points per dollar spent on your individual per-person portion of a JetBlue Getaways vacation package. Points will be earned on the base price (air + hotel) of the package and on the base price of any car rental and activities purchased at the time of booking. Points will not be earned on government taxes/fees, travel insurance, or other fees or charges (e.g., change/cancel fees, activities added after booking, food, airport transfers, etc.) You will only earn Points based on the eligible amount spent on your individual per-person cost of the Getaways package. You will not earn any Points for amounts spent on any other traveler’s Getaways package, even if such traveler is on your booking and/or you paid for the package. If you are traveling with other TrueBlue Members, each Member’s TrueBlue account information (name and TrueBlue number) must be entered for the booking in order for every Member to earn TrueBlue points on their individual per-person portion of the JetBlue Getaways vacation package.
TrueBlue Members can use TrueBlue points in combination with a monetary payment to purchase JetBlue Getaways vacation packages. The number of points and the dollar amount required for a particular Getaways package will depend on, among other things, the flight, destination and hotel chosen and the applicability of peak travel periods. The amount of points and the amount of the monetary payment required for a particular package may not be changed or re-allocated in any way. Promo or discount codes cannot be used when booking an Award Getaway. Points used towards a Getaways purchase must be from one TrueBlue member’s account; points may not be combined from multiple TrueBlue accounts. Monetary payments must be made at time of booking using a major credit card. Getaways packages purchased solely with a monetary payment may not be exchanged or refunded for purchase with TrueBlue points. TrueBlue Members cannot earn any TrueBlue points on Getaways packages purchased with a combination of TrueBlue points and a monetary payment.
Except for promotions offered by JetBlue that expressly apply to a particular Getaways vacation package, no other promotional discounts, vouchers, coupons or other discounts or special offers will apply to Getaways vacation packages or any components thereof.
