6. Ask questions if buying from an agent
If you are not buying directly from the airline or its website, ask for the “Terms and Conditions” of the agent. If online, the terms are available to read on the agent’s website.
Agents usually charge additional fees when cancelling or changing tickets, even if the airline does for free. Find out if meals served on flight are what you prefer, be it food, alcoholic and non- alcoholic beverages. Most times, people turn to travel in comfort, if they are given the warmest of receptions.
Some Airlines do not serve continental dishes. They seize the opportunity to promote their culture hence, serving food and drinks that are indigenous to them.
Example, Airlines owned by Islamic countries mostly do not serve alcoholic beverages in a bid to perpetuate their doctrine and culture. Some people take in at least little alcohol to kill fear especially for people who are height-phobia.
If you have special dietary requirements, check with the airline or agent if your needs could be met.
NB: Agents, other than online ones, charge additional fees when selling tickets, ranging from $50 – $100. Some agents make their fares competitive by reducing their fees.
