Here are some tips for when you book flights online: -
- Make sure your airline or booking company is IATA registered and has an ATOL bond. This will protect your money should the airline fail, or the booking company fail.
- A second line of protection is if your credit card company or bank protect payments made online using their cards - this will protect you against online fraud and your payment if goods or services are not supplied.
- Try to use reputable companies that show clear contact details at their website, so that if you need to contact them you can.
- Check terms and conditions of booking, especially the cancellation policy. You may find that for certain fare deals there are no refunds, or booking amendments allowed, or large fees for amending the booking.
- If travelling longhaul you may get options of stop-overs at other destinations, or the option of adding stop-overs for a small fee. Stop-overs are usually allowed for around 48 hours subject to any visa rules being met. This gives you the option to explore other destinations within the cost of your ticket. Stop-overs may be in just one, or both directions. (eg visiting Australia from London - book out via Bangkok and back via Singapore for the opportunity to adding two destinations on stop-overs).
Book Cheap Airline Tickets
There are hundreds of airfare conslidators out there offering cheaper than full fare flights that can save you up to 50% on published rates. However, when you book discounted flights some service elements may not be included in the price you pay. For example airport chauffeur transfer services and preference for flat bed seating in business class may be reserved for full fare paying passengers only.
