Travelers Can Save an Average of $211.49 by Avoiding Mistakes When Booking Flights

Flight Network Completes Study on Most Common Booking Mistakes Travelers Make and How to Avoid Them

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 03, 2016) - Flight Network recently completed an in-depth study of over 45,000 flight bookings to analyze the most common mistakes being made. They found 8 frequent mistakes that are costing travelers an average of $211.49. This substantial amount is based on service fees, airline change fees and possible fare differences, all of which can easily be avoided.

A booking mistake can be small and turn out to be very easy to fix if taken care of right away, but in many cases some mistakes can be costly to fix or worse prevent a trip from taking place.

Flight Network lists the 8 common booking mistakes, what it can cost a customer and how these mistakes can be easily avoided. Although the mistakes listed in last year's list continue to be present, some additional mistakes from this year's findings include: making duplicate bookings, not realizing there are charges for special requests and failing to reconfirm flight schedules, which can all results in additional fees.

"We want to make customers aware of these common mistakes so they can save on unnecessary fees," says Neil Bhapkar, Chief Marketing Officer at Flight Network, "these mistakes can be easily avoided and save a lot of stress when booking with any online travel agency, not just with Flight Network."
