How you save
How much you save depends on your Vitality status and is calculated on the fare and VAT excluding airport taxes. The discount will apply to the base fare, VAT and YQI (Carrier Imposed Fuel Fee) for all kulula.com and British Airways (Operated by Comair) domestic and regional routes. Savings only apply to Vitality members, non-members travelling with Vitality members do not qualify for Vitality savings.
Booking for dependents
Children under 12 can benefit from Discovery Vitality discounts if they are booked together with an adult on the same Vitality profile. If a parent and child are booked together, both will benefit from the Discovery Vitality discount.
The child's booking will not benefit from the Vitality discount if:
- A child booking has been added after the booking has been confirmed
- The adult booking and the child's booking are on different Vitality membership numbers
Therefore, if you are a Discovery Vitality member with your child as a dependent and your child is travelling with another adult, even if that adult is a Vitality member, your child will not receive a Vitality discount.
A child under the age of 12 cannot fly alone on kulula. For an unaccompanied minor to benefit from the Vitality discount you can book them on a British Airways (operated by Comair) flight by calling the Special Projects Contact Centre on 011 921 0490.
