Episode 25 Booking Mistake ("deal") Fares - Part 1
October 09, 2017 Michael Mason Trager
Today we are going to be talking a little bit about booking deal fares, otherwise often referred to as "mistake fares". We're going to talk about what they are, how you book them, how you get them ticketed. First off, it's best to not refer to any travel mistake as a mistake. Refer to it as a “deal”, refer to it as a “flash sale”, but never refer to it as a mistake. Step number one is finding these deals. Stay tuned as we go over all the steps to booking the deal fares, how to find them, and how to make sure that you are absolutely prepared to make a booking when these deals appear. All this and more inside of Part I of this episode.
