Cheaper booking flights?

Hopefully this may help a bit...

Re: Cheaper booking flights?

Did you read it? It seems that they will simply add 50p to the cost irrespective of whether you use a card or not. as usual the customer always loses out.

It's a bit more complicated than that. Customers who pay by debit card will end up paying a 'service charge' when they paid nothing before. Debit cards cost retailers tiny sums to process. Credit cards cost them a lot more but they've decided to clobber everybody. Not sure why I should pay for people, many of whom can't manage their finances. Mind you, the protection that credit cards give when paying for expensive items does make it sensible sometimes too.

Hopefully somebody or some consumer group will take on some of these companies who clearly want to use 'service charges' as an additional way to rip-off customers. I've no problem paying a small charge for convenience that reflects the costs involved....but no more than that.

Been looking at a flight with Easyjet for the last month or so and it's been the same price throughout,so checked it this morning and guess what,it's still the same price.

Delete your cookies, websites recognize your computer ID and know what flights your more interested in. If you look at same flights later from a different computer you may get better prices. Another trick you can do is put in dates a week before or dates a day later, the flights you want would normally come up on the screen without you clicking on them, then you can keep an eye on them without the website knowing which flights you prefer.
