San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2016
Dohop.com, the Iceland-based travel comparison site, today announced the introduction of FLYR Fare Protection to its growing list of customer-friendly flight search features.
FLYR Fare Protection is a new service that allows users to guard against fare hikes during their trip planning process.
For a small fee per passenger, FLYR Fare Protection protects today’s airfare for up to 30 days, giving customers the time and flexibility they need. For example, if a customer books a protected itinerary at a higher price during the coverage period, FLYR Fare Protection will pay out the difference, up to $200 USD (or equivalent) per protected passenger. Likewise, if the airfare drops during the coverage period, FLYR will notify the customer of the new lower fare. If the customer does not book the travel, their only cost is the small Fare Protection fee.
“Dohop is committed to helping customers make travel work for them,” said David Gunnarsson, Dohop’s CEO.
“By adding FLYR Fare Protection to Dohop, we are helping customers minimize their risk while giving them the flexibility they need to make the best choices for their travel plan.”
Fare Protection is useful for travelers who need a bit more time to finalize plans before committing to a booking.
Instead of booking the flight immediately and risk paying hundreds of dollars in cancellation fees or change fees, FLYR Fare Protection customers can stay flexible at a fraction of the cost.
