Flight Prices Flying Up

With the collapse of XL this summer, it seems prices have nearly
doubled as people ensure they do not miss out totally on their
holidays. With demand to rebook flights increasing at a staggering
rate, prices are flying high in a bid to deal with all enquiries. A
return flight for two to Lanzarote had increased from '460 to '1,342.
People who have booked their hotel and flights separately are mostly
affected as they will have lost their money for their original flights
but will somehow have to find the cash to replace their flights for
the same dates. If you have booked using a credit card then you may be
able to claim back your money but if you have booked using a debit
card then the transaction is non refundable.
Travel companies have been cashing in on XL's collapse as they are now
serving all their existing customers and providing them with flights
abroad. Even though the price of fuel is falling, the airlines are
maintaining their high prices in peak seasons.
Although, not all out there are looking for a quick sale or two,
travel counsellors are also fighting for their business to offer
support to people who have lost their money. One travel counsellors
have recorded an 800% increase in enquiries to their website since
their collapse. The association for British Travel Agents have also
recorded non stop phone calls from British holiday makers.
This is not just happening in the UK as similar cases are also
happening around the globe and with the US giants Zoom collapsing, the
Americans have also been hit hard.
