Questions That May Help Avoid Air Tickets Booking Mistakes

By Samwalker Subscribe to RSS | May 18th 2012 | Views:

Many consider cheap air tickets to be the essential ingredients for gratifying vacations. However, even a simple mistake while booking can cost one a lot of hassle and a little fortune. Here are top ten questions that you must always ask yourself when booking air tickets to avoid any booking errors.

Are Your Travel Documents Correct?

Always check you have valid travel documents like passport, visa or health documents before booking air tickets to avoid any inconvenience. Ensure correct validity and at least two blank pages on the passport for visa endorsements.

Have You Provided Correct Personal Information?

Incorrect personal information on the tickets may call for unexpected inconvenience. Supply all the personal info like name, nationality, and other related information as it appears on the passport.

Did You Choose the Correct Destination?

Remember similarly sounding airport codes often create confusion, so consider your options very carefully and choose your airports correctly, especially if booking online, to avoid the complications.

Are Your Travel Dates Correct?

Always check the travel date information before booking. Even if you stumble upon cheap airline deal, just make sure you don’t get careless. Choosing wrong travel dates without paying attention to the calendar month while booking can put your trip in jeopardy.

What Type Of Tickets Do You Need?

Identify the type of tickets that best suits your travel needs. Do not fall for cheap airline tickets that are restrictive and don’t meet your requirements, instead go for flexible ticket that may be slightly expensive but can be changed and are refundable.

Is Your Connection Time Too-Tight?

The excitement of finding real cheap airline deals should not cause you to ignore the minimum connection time if the itinerary includes a connecting flight. Make sure you have 2 to 3 hours connection time or as advised by airports. Having enough connection time would save you all the hassle and facilitate easier transition.

Did You Check the Itinerary Details Received?

Before confirming, double check the itinerary details to confirm all travel details are as per your requirement. Make sure to enquire about additional charges like checked baggage, excess baggage etc before paying for those cheap airline tickets to save your ticket from getting hugely inflated.

Have You Reconfirmed The Bookings?

Contact the airlines or travel agent at least 72 hours before to reconfirm the details and the terms and conditions of the bookings and find out if there are any expected changes or cancellations.

Did You Check The Follow Up Emails/ Alerts?

Airlines often send e-mail updates and alerts at passenger’s email in case there are any changes or cancellations. Being heedful to the email updates and alerts can save you from later problems.

Do You Have Any Special Travel Requests?

If you have a medical problem or disability which needs special assistance, be proactive to advise the travel agent or airline in writing before booking the tickets.
