I want to book flight and hotel reservations without purchasing the actual tickets. Are reservations accepted by the embassy?
That’s exactly why we are here for and why you should use our service! Yes, the reservations are perfectly acceptable.
The embassy actually recommends not purchasing actual tickets until the visa is approved. We take away the overhead and ticket cancellation worries from you by making travel reservations on your behalf for a small service fee.
Moreover, see below that the Spain consulate (Point# 9) doesn’t recommend you to purchase actual airline tickets until you get the visa.
“Should I buy an airline ticket before the appointment? We recommend that you do not purchase travel tickets until your visa has been approved. On the other hand, you may provide us with a reservation, a planned itinerary or an online printout of a roundtrip ticket.” – Spain Embassy
