      • Minimum Stay at Destination
      • Moment of Booking

      • Only in Y-Class and only for Returns
    • How to deal with them?
      • See if there are any Special Fares between origin and destination
      • Note all the fares and their Rule number
      • Analyze the trip in this order on these points:
        • Number of stopovers
        • Duration of Minimum Stay
        • Duration of Total Journey
      • Why in the above order: Stopover Restriction is most cases the strongest restriction
    • How to count the number of stopovers?
      • Stopover is a scheduled interruption of the journey of more than 24 hours
      • It does not matter if it is on the demand of the traveller or not
      • Do not include in the count the point of turnaround
      • Count outbound and inbound journey seperately
    • How to analyze the maximum duration of the journey?
      • Count from the day op departure to the day of departure for the (last leg) of the return journey
      • Validity in months: to the same day of the last month
        • 3 months: November 30 -> February 28!
    • How to analyze the Minimum Stay?
      • At what date is the departure from last stopover point (including for this matter also the point of Turnaround)?
      • Start counting from the day after departure to that date
      • Compare number of days with the minimum stay requirement
      • Easy?
    • Example 1: AMS – MAD – CAS – LIS - AMS
      • Departure AMS: July 16
      • Arrival CAS: July 19, Departure July 24
      • Departure LIS: July 25
      • What is the last stopoverpoint:
      • LIS
      • How many days:
      • 9 Days (Start counting day after departure AMS until departure from LIS)
    • Example 2: AMS – MAD – CAS – X/LIS - AMS
      • Departure AMS: July 16
      • Arrival CAS: July 19, Departure July 24
      • Departure LIS: July 25
      • What is the last stopoverpoint:
      • CAS (Point of Turnaround)
      • How many days:
      • 8 Days (Start counting day after departure AMS until departure from CAS)
    • Structure of the Rules
      • Each Special Fare has its own Rule
      • Each Rule has 30 paragraphs (0 – 29)
      • With the rules only the paragraphs that are different from the Standard Paragraph SC100 are mentioned
      • Mentioned Paragraphs have precedence over Standard Paragraphs
    • How to go ahead
      • Analyze the itinerary of the trip
      • Go to the rule of the lowest Special Fare
      • Check paragraphs 8 – 6 – 7
      • If paragraph is not mentioned, then consult Standard Rule SC 100
      • Compare checks with itinerary
      • If it matches, then use that fare
      • If not, go to the next lower fare and repeat your checks
      • Etc.
    • Once you have found an applicable Special Fare
      • Check for the season (Paragraph 3):
      • Day of departure decides which season is applicable
      • Write down the correct Fare Basis
      • Note date and city from which earliest return may commence
      • Note last date of validity
      • Write down ‘Not Valid Before’ and ‘Not Valid After’ for the applicable segments of the journey
    • Example Not Valid Before Not Valid After
      • Departure Date: 19JUN
      • Fare Basis YHEE4M
      • Minimum Stay Requirement: 6 Days:
        • Earliest departure last stopover city is 25JUN
      • Maximum Validity: 4 Months
        • Latest day of validity is 19OCT
    • Not Valid Before & Not Valid After 19OCT 25JUN 19OCT 19OCT 19OCT NOT VALID AFTER NOT VALID BEFORE
    • To sum it up:
      • Look for the lowest Special Fare
      • See which Rule is applicable (Y …)
      • Check Rule against Trip Itinerary
      • If a Paragraph is not mentioned, than SC 100 applies
      • If you find something that does not comply, abandon and
      • Go to next lowest Special Fare
      • See which Rule is applicable (Y…)
      • Repeat check of Rule against Trip Itinerary
      • When you have found a fare, note Fare Basis and establish Season and Complete N.V.B and N.V.A.
