Once you select Exchange option scroll down to additional section.

In order to get new Fare Quote you have to select additional parameters like passenger name, choose segments and optionally additional modifiers.

Missing ticket data – this field is used in case when the agent must add some information necessary for the exchange, which cannot be identified by TCP, e.g. the Fare amount in case of IT tickets or XF tax breakdown, when it is not possible to identify it from the already exchanged ticket or PNR.

Description

Passenger

Is selected automatically, but the selection can be changed by the agent. Passenger type code – PTC is automatically copied from the “Name” element but can be changed by the agent when some special discount is to be applied.

Segments

Must be selected by the agent. In case of reissue after departure, already flown segments must be selected as well, because the entire journey must be recalculated from the origin.

Additional options

Which date will be used for recalculation (as per IATA rules).

Before departure

Is the first coupon modified?

Yes - current Fare and current taxes will be used for recalculation (FQ with today’s date).

No – recalculation will be done with previous/original ticketing date. This date is mostly added by TCP automatically, but sometimes (in case of the second exchange/reissue) must be added by the agent.

After departure

Recalculation will be done with previous/original ticketing date. This date is mostly added by TCP automatically, but sometimes (in case of the second exchange/reissue) must be added by the agent.

FQ.H

Historical Fare but current taxes will be used for recalculation (nonstandard procedure).

Carrier

It is not always necessary to show, only in exceptional cases.

Account code

For private fares with account code.

CUR

Currency should be entered in case when the original ticket is issued in other currency than the local currency (e.g. in USD or EUR).

Additional modifiers

Any other FQ modifier which can be used for new calculation such as FXD or *:BFn (n = number of Fare Family/branded Fare number to receive the fare with baggage), no stopover indicator, fare break point indicator, private fare indicator etc.

FQ calculation date is mostly added by TCP automatically, but can be changed by the agent. Sometimes in case of the second or subsequent exchange/reissue this date must be added by the agent either using the calendar or typing the date manually.

Pricing by Fare basis – sometimes it is necessary to enter the required Fare basis code in order to specify which Fare should be used (e.g. Fare with baggage)

After all the necessary information has been added, the fare calculation made by Galileo will be returned and can be compared to the original / previous ticket.
