Hope you guys enjoyed Christmas! Now, as you’re fighting off that holiday bloat, let’s continue where we left off last week.
I posted about the benefits and risks of booking separate flights last week.
Basically, you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars by purchasing the different legs of your journey separately. These are not connecting flights and that’s where the risk factor comes in. If your first flight is delayed for some reason and you miss your second flight, the airlines are not responsible and won’t give you any compensation. You have to purchase a new ticket.
Is this risk worth the savings? That’s for you to decide.
If you want to go ahead and book separate flights to save money, take the necessary precautions to minimize your risk as much as possible.
