Airline Alliances

Stick to one airline alliance for better airfare. Booking one airline on the outbound and a carrier from another alliance on the return, will increase the fare significantly.

Airline Fare Rules

The lower the fare, the more restrictive the ticket cancellation and change penalties will be. The same cabin can have several different fare rule options.

Advance Purchase

Generally, fares are lower with more advance purchase. Different airfares have cutoff dates for lower rates such as 3 months, 30 days, etc. Additionally, availability is better with more advance.

One Ways

Booking two one ways are generally more expensive than booking round-trip fares. In a scenario with only an estimated return date, booking a round-trip ticket and paying the change fee once the return date is determined, is usually more cost-effective than booking two one way tickets.

Complimentary Hold

As travel professionals, we can reserve the space while finalizing your hotels and land components. While airfare isn't guaranteed until ticketed and paid for, sometimes the airlines will allow us to hold a ticket for up to several days, saving you from an increase in fare.
