Well, traveling the world doesn’t have to cost a mint! I mean, the best tactic to save money on flights is to be flexible with your travel dates. You can give yourself the best chance by searching a couple of days, or even weeks, either side of your preferred departure date. Instead of choosing a destination and then spending days or weeks trying to find a flight deal, considering simply flying to where the flight deals already are!
As far as I’m concerned, I’ve planned to go on a trip somewhere with a friend after my university exams and luckily at the same moment,I was asked to be a part of a campaign by KLM, the Dutch Royal Airline company. Obviously, as you know me,taking any opportunities that have potential value has been my trademark. That’s why I jumped into the occasion to give you an access to those 130 destinations deals that the company is offering from New York,Paris, to Dubai,Las Vegas or Istanbul and the deals last from August 26th to September 09th 2015 at KLM’s booking site. Therefore, I’ll make a review post in the weeks to come about the flight and my trip as I booked it with KLM airline. Surprisingly if you’re weather in your way,that company got your back and you have 24 hours to cancel your flight.
Anyway, as I know, deciding where to go next isn’t sometimes a part of fun, you can browse the Map section on their website to explore the globe with inspiring tips, practical information and handy flight suggestions on their Travel Guide topic. Alternatively, you can search according to region, holiday type and budget which avoids wasting time and getting lost on your research. I‘ve always been in the habit of knowing more about any upcoming flight, so I’ve checked on KLM’s Flight Guide and saw that you’d be kept updated with live flight status,the menu that will be served on board and what weather to expect at your final destination. Additionally, you can also access to your personal flight guide through the link in your check-in mail or with their KLM mobile app 48 hours before the departure(It’s free to download from Google Play,Apple App Store,Android Smartwatch and Apple Watch, too).
Losing your luggage is one of a traveller’s worst nightmares right? I’m always upset about how long those airlines will search my bags, what compensation am I due etc. The worst situation is when the airline loses your bag on the outbound flight and you’re left with only the clothes you’ve travelled in, and might end up splashing most of your spending money on last-minute T-shirts and toiletries to carry you through. Yes it can become highly irritating! However, if you forgot something on KLM’s aircraft,or lost something, you have simply to contact them directly on their Facebook or via Twitter within 3 days and their team is on it. All in all, I suggest you to follow in general any of your favorite airlines on their social network because it’s getting more common for travel companies to release hot deals directly through their social media channels. Plus, they often run contests, giveaways and announce any flight complications via Facebook and Twitter. Last but not least, KLM have launched a ”Rate the Flight” section that allows you to review and evaluate your flight once you have arrived at your destination. By the way, I hope having made you discover another company service that makes you feel like a valued customer!
