    PLEASE NOTE: If you purchase a Travel CUTS special fare that requires an IYTC, you will need your IYTC at the time of boarding your flight. If you don't have your IYTC with you, the airline may deny you boarding. If you are eligible, you can still book a youth fare even if you don't yet have the IYTC; however, you must obtain and have in your possession an IYTC within 48 hours of your booking.
