How to find a cheap last minute ticket?
We can never repeat it enough, to go cheap, you must first compare. Between the flights of the big companies and those of the low cost companies, the margin in terms of price is substantial. Certainly, the big companies include a certain number of services and more comfort, but do you really always need a suitcase in the hold or to have a meal? It all depends on the length of your stay and the destination. Here’s how to find a cheap last-minute flight.
How to get a refund for your ticket in case of cancellation due to COVID-19?
Don’t worry about this: the airline will have to reimburse your plane ticket if your flight is canceled due to COVID-19. Since May 13, 2020, the European Commission has authorized the company to offer you a credit note valid for 12 months. If you have not used it beyond this period, the credit is refundable. You can also refuse the credit note to obtain a refund directly.
