BEST PRICE TECHNOLOGY

Our state of the art booking engine uses artificial intelligence mimicking a real travel agents search for finding the best fare and connection. Our personal knowledge and experience of over 30 years of ticket issuance is implemented in this new automated technology. Sometimes we break the travel on a given point and add two individual airfares together or use some other creative algorithm to get you a cheaper deal. Also if you are searching for a one way airfare, and this fare is higher then a round trip, we show, book and issue a roundtrip for you where you only use the outbound ticket. Should your booking consist of multiple tickets, our 3rd party missed connection protection is added free to your reservation.

We update and improve our system all the time and proud ourselves having the most advanced booking engine on the Internet.

TICKETING
