Lock airfares as you firm up your air travel

Staying watchful of the ongoing uncertainty and planning your air travel accordingly is the best that you can do as you firm up your travel dates. But given the evolving scenarios, one cannot worry least about the change in airfares — leaving many to think whether they should wait and consequently risk fare hike or book the ticket right away. So, here’s what flyers can do as they finalize their travel. Lock fares and reserve their seats without paying for the actual price of the ticket upfront.

With this flyers can also secure themselves against any price hike as they can purchase the ticket at the same locked-in price later. The service allows customers to lock airfares for one, three, or seven days for a nominal fee — that later gets adjusted into the full price of the ticket at the time of the final purchase. Here’s a quick and easy resolve to buy time and the same money on your air tickets!
