on travel technology …and everything else
Here is my first poll.
With all these options to book online its amazing to find Travel Agencies offering cheaper fares than those found online. Most of the big travel agencies get special discounted rates from airlines. Even if its just a matter of saving 20KD on your trip, its still fun to know you got a better deal that you could find online.
Whats even more amazing is that booking well in advance will not necessarily get you the best fare. Take Jazeera Airways for instance. They suddenly come up with a 5KD fare. That would truly suck if you booked a 45KD fare the previous day! That said, booking in advance will guarantee you a seat on the flight you want to be on. But with the choice of at least 2-3 low cost carriers and 4-10 daily flights to almost every destination, does it really matter?
How do you define booking periods? I would classify them as
These only apply to planned holidays or annual travel. Business trips don’t count.
Personally most of my bookings have been either late or last minute. And I usually get a very good deal too. How about you?
