Fare rises 'not new'
12 November 2009 12:47
Fare increases during peak holiday times are nothing new in the travel industry, it has been claimed.
According to the Association of European Airlines (AEA), travellers have long since had to put up with carriers upping the cost of flights during periods such as Christmas.
While this may see Brits forced to dig into their pockets a little deeper in order to afford a flight, cutting back on travel insurance to try and save money on a trip could prove to be more costly in the long-run should a problem occur.
Commenting on seasonal fare increases, David Henderson from the AEA said: "If you go into any airline website and navigate through the booking process for a flight in the run-up to Christmas, for example, you will see prices rising sharply in the days before the 25th, but lots of bargains to be had immediately after."
This could mean that those looking to get travel insurance and jet off for a festive getaway could find after the peak period a great time to grab a bargain flight.
