Q How do I Validate my plane Ticket?

A Validating your ticket is actually an easy process. Here's what you need to do:

Tip: If you have a round trip flight, you can enter the return flight number from the very beginning. This way you won’t have to validate your tickets twice.

  • Own a plane ticket with your name on it.
  • If you haven't already, now is a good time to create an account on our website.
  • You can either go to My account and click on the Tickets tab, or you can go to Ticket validation icon in the header of our website (the one with the plane) and use the shortcut button Validate a ticket to get redirected to the ticket validation form in your account.
  • As you now have an account on our website, your personal data (first name, last name and email address) is already filled in, so you just need to make sure it resembles the one on your plane ticket. You should know that the personal data fields in Ticket Validation form are not editable. Therefore, if the name you used to create your account does not match the one on your plane ticket, you should go to My Account > Account Information and edit your personal information there.
  • Enter your flight number as displayed on your plane ticket. Make sure you type in the flight number without spaces or special characters. We suggest you don’t copy-paste it from your e-ticket. If the number you entered is incorrect, you will receive an error message.
  • If you have a Bestvalue Code, there's no need to enter your flight number. You only have to check this option, type your code and validate.
  • Once the flight number is entered correctly, we will generate another field, where you must enter your PNR. Once again, the PNR needs to be the same as the one on your ticket.
  • After your PNR is validated, you will have to select your flight date, using the calendar icon in the bottom-left corner of the field.
  • Now that all the data is entered, you just push the Validate button and that's it. You can now sit back and enjoy the duty free experience.

We also created a walk-through area on the right side of the validation form, so you will be guided every step throughout the validation process. Please remember we are always here to help, in case you have trouble validating your ticket.

Q Where can I find my flight number?

A The flight number may be displayed on different places on your ticket, depending on the company you chose to fly with.

Q Can I make purchases if I don't validate a plane ticket?

A As our business develops inside airports, it's quite easy to guess that we have a special thing for travelers. We all know that travelling by plane can be exhausting at some point, this is why we created this company to make flying something you rather look forward to, than away from. Therefore, shopping on www.bestvalue.eu is the second best thing you can do with your plane ticket. Or maybe the first, if you consider you can use your ticket before you even fly.

Q When does my ticket become valid?

A It takes less that a second to activate you ticket from the moment you press the Validate button. If all information in the validation form is entered correctly, you will receive a Success message announcing your ticket has been validated. You can start shopping once you see this message.

Q When does my ticket expire?

A Your ticket expires on the day you fly. Therefore, we suggest you validate your plane ticket the moment you buy it. You can use the Ticket Validation icon in the header to see when your ticket will expire. Keep in mind that the sooner you validate, the longer you can enjoy the duty-free experience.

Q How many tickets can I validate?

A There is no restriction on the number of tickets you can validate. As long as all tickets have your name on it, sky is the limit.

Q How will I know if my ticket is still valid?

A You can keep track of your ticket(s) status by accessing My Account ->Tickets -> Tickets History. That's where you can see the PNRsBestValue Codes and statuses of all your validations. You can also see the status of your last validated ticket in the header, by clicking on the Ticket Validation icon.


Q How do I find the Poduct I'm looking for?

A For starters, if you already know what you are looking for, you can use the quick search bar on the top of the webpage. You can use it to type in any key words, such as the name of the product, the type of product or the brand. A list with products containing the key word(s) you entered will drop down and you can select your product from there.

On the other hand, if you're not sure what you're looking for or if you're in search of a gift for a loved one, you can take the opportunity and try out the various facilities we designed for you:

  • Filters - there's a great range of filters meant to help you find products you're interested in, down to the last detail. Depending on the category you choose, you can either sort products by subcategories, gender, brands, price, color, benefits and so on. Every time you apply a filter, the list of products adapts to the characteristics you choose.
  • Product Badges - if you're interested in the new entries, special offers, airport exclusive or online exclusive products, you should know there's a special badge for each of these products, built to help you spot the specific category from far away.
  • Product Detail page - every product has a personalized description, made to cover all details you might want to know about that specific item. So, if you're having trouble choosing between products, take the time and read the product information. We must warn you, though: our descriptions can be very persuasive.
  • Recommended products - this is a very useful feature, where we display a range of our best sellers and most notorious brands.

Last, but not least, don't forget we have a team specialized in customer support, who can help you choose the right item. There's one thing we guarantee you: there's no way you will leave our website empty-handed.


Q How do I Purchase?

A Access the product page of every item you want to buy and click on the Add to bag button on the page. Once you decided over the product(s) you want to buy, click on the Bag icon in the top-right corner of the website.

Step One: You will be presented with an overview of your shopping bag. You can edit your shopping bag from there (increase/decrease quantities or remove products from bag).

Step Two: Remember that you need to validate a plane ticket in order to make purchases. If you haven't yet, you will now have the opportunity to do it. The Ticket Validation Form will be displayed in step two. After you validate, you will be able to continue with the checkout process. However, if you have already validated your ticket before checkout, you will pass directly to the next step.

Step three: Here's where you can select or edit the shipping address you want to receive your order at.

Step four: As a next step you need to choose the payment method that suits you the most. If you decide to pay by credit card you will be redirected to our partners' payment platform, who will ensure a secure payment. If you decide on Cash on Delivery, you will pay for your order when the courier agent hands you the package. Once you chose the payment method, you can move on to the next step.

Step Five: This is the last step in placing your order. Once again you get an overview on the order you are about to place: the products you want to buy, the billing & shipping addresses you selected, the payment method you chose and the final price of your order. You just need to check if all information is correct and push Place Order. Don't forget to agree to our Terms & Conditions before placing the order.

After your order is placed you will receive a confirmation email containing all details regarding your order.
