Jennifer Doncsecz “Get Your Refund After Airfares Drop”
PHILADELPHIA – You’ve probably heard that Tuesday is the best day to buy airline tickets. Well, now there’s a website that tells you when prices drop – and when to buy.
Jennifer Doncsecz from VIP Vacations joined “Good Day” to discuss and share some links. The first site is www.yapta.com , where not only will it track your favorite flights, but if you already purchased a flight, it will help you get a refund if you paid too much.
She also really likes www.kayak.com. You can request a fare alert and look up a “trend” – which really just tells you what the average price should be.
And www.farecast.com will flip you to Bing, which bought Farecast. What Doncsecz likes about this site is, first, if you are logged onto Facebook you don’t have to create an account. The other two sites she mentioned have you create an account and log on. And, second, after you search, at the very top of the screen is the price predictor, and the tip, which is based on statistics and will tell you to buy or to wait.
All of these sites are great for setting up alerts. Just remember, though, that you can only look for prices 330 days out. These sites will not tell you if the flights are virtually sold out. And they usually only alert you when the fare drops, so if you are waiting for a while it could just be that the fare has gone up.
