Travel News – Are you thinking about purchasing a flight to Costa Rica? What are the additional costs that are part of the price of your ticket?
So many factors play a part in the final cost of an airline ticket. The new trend in flights is to let each customer customize his or her trip, paying only for the combination of options of value to them.
For instance, some airlines quote the price of the seat alone and you can purchase checked luggage, carry on bags, transportation of sporting equipment, meals, headphones, pillows, etc. separately.
Some allow you to choose your seat while others charge for this privilege. Some add the taxes and fees in the quote while others throw those in later. Some airlines include one or two bags in the seat price, while others adhere more strictly to the “bare fare” idea, so read the fine print.
Keep in mind that rates fluctuate greatly by season and even according to when you book. Check the rates on a few days and at different times of day to get the best deal. There’s some other good news- oil prices are expected to drop this year, which could lead to lower ticket prices.
