How are these fares/tickets different than buying a ticket from the airline directly or from a website.
These tickets are in most cases very similar to the tickets that you buy directly from the airlines. You can request special meals, get advanced seat assignments and almost always accrue frequent flyer mileage. But booking with us will give you more privileges which other websites don’t, for an instance:
Out-Bound Date changes (Date change Fee will be applicable).
Ticket Cancellation (Ticket cancellation Fee will be applicable).
What is an e-ticket?
An e-ticket is an electronic ticket. It contains all the information shown on a paper ticket, but is stored as an electronic record in the airline’s computer system. When the e-ticket has been issued, the passenger simply needs to print out their receipt / itinerary showing the booking reference. At the departure airport the passenger goes straight to the airline check-in desk. The main benefits to the passenger are that the e-tickets cannot be lost; there is no need to queue for tickets at the airport, and itinerary changes (where permitted by the airline) can be handled more easily. This form of ticketing is becoming widespread, and the International Air Transport Association is aiming for 100% implementation of e-ticketing worldwide by the end of 2008.
