Features of the purchase of tickets
Most of us tend to get cheap vacation tickets. Therefore, we often ignore the offers of travel agencies and are looking for other options just to save on travel. Most of us solve this problem using the Internet, but this is not always easy, as there are more airlines every day, and their advertising is far from always honest.
The European Commission recently conducted an investigation, and it turned out that in 15 countries of the European Union there are airlines that exist only on paper, and in 30 percent of cases the advertising information was not confirmed. Quite often, an incomplete and underestimated cost of services is indicated in an advertisement, or formulations are unclear for an ordinary buyer, it sometimes happens that only services are indicated on the site, but in reality, there is no hint of them.
Unfortunately, our country does not carry out such comprehensive checks, but we can be sure that our carriers have the above violations. The truth of the advertising information in our country is monitored by Rospotrebnadzor, if you see a violation of your rights or a rude attitude towards you by the air carrier, contact this organization immediately, in this case, you have a lot of chances to win a lawsuit against the offender. Our carriers often do not warn passengers about flight rescheduling, although there are all the possibilities for this, sometimes you have to wait 5 or more hours for your flight, which, you see, is unpleasant.
Some airlines, via the Internet, offer to fly to Germany for 129 euros, the trick here is that it says 129, and many of us believe that this is the only price, after talking with the company, as a rule, the price increases to 400 and higher. Be careful and remember that the lower the tariffs, the more likely it is that it will not be possible to make a trip at this price, and if you are lucky, you will remember the level of “service” for a long time, after which you may no longer want to use any services airlines.
If you want to save on tickets and not be fooled, you need to start ordering them 1.5 to 6 months before the intended trip. At the same time, be careful if you bought a cheap ticket, it is unlikely to change or refuse it, also pay attention to the fact that the agency often indicates a net price without taxes, but you really have to buy a ticket at a completely different price. It happens that the information on the ticket is indicated in a foreign language that you do not understand, ask the airline for a full translation into Russian. In general, the cheaper the ticket, the more careful you should be. Read the ticket fully after purchase, pay special attention to the time of ticket sale, if the fare is cheap, then the time to sell such tickets should be reduced, look at how much time it is allowed to return the ticket before departure. If the ticket is cheap, then the duration of the trip should be short, if a period of a month or more is indicated, this is an occasion to beware. In any case, be careful, do not pursue deceptive cheapness, remember that the avaricious pays twice, and a good vacation, albeit a little more expensive, can be an unforgettable memory for you and your loved ones.
