Getting ready to fly

Should I choose the cheapest fare?

It's worth noting low-priced fares usually have more restrictions and penalties if you require changes. Generally the more expensive tickets, or flexible fares, have fewer restrictions and penalties. So if your plans are subject to change, or you would like the freedom of flexibility in your ticket, ask your consultant for this option.

I'm going to a few different places, am I best to fly with just one airline?

Airlines often form alliances to offer the freedom and flexibility to fly you anywhere in the world. Here at Flight Center we offer tailor-made itineraries such as Double Dip or Triple Dip flights that allow free stopovers. Other options include Round the World, Circle Asia, Circle Pacific and air passes by region. Talk to your local Flight Center consultant about creating a flight plan to suit you.

Can I use the airline lounges at airports?

Airlines usually offer lounges to First and Business Class travelers or as a benefit of membership to their frequent flyer programs. Increasingly however, some airports and airlines allow passengers to pay to use their lounges, with facilities including internet access showers, massages, meals and refreshments. Visit our Airport Guide for more information.

Making the most of travel loyalty programs

There are a variety of airline loyalty programs available that allow you to earn frequent flyer points for flying with a specific carrier or purchasing goods or services from its affiliated partners. To maximize the amount of points earned, choose an airline that best reflects your travel needs – including departure points, flight network and timetables. Try to book your flights with this airline and take advantage of their affiliated airline partners to earn points across a global flight network. Usually, the higher the cabin class and higher your membership status, the more points you'll earn.

Today, points are earned on the ground too with affiliated partners or through credit card loyalty programs linked to an airline or travel partner. This means you can earn points on a variety of everyday purchases. Points can be redeemed for a wide range of travel benefits and increasingly non-travel related goods and services as well.
