Is your best friend getting married in two months? Must attend that much-awaited carnival? Planning a gateway in the hills, but too many situational factors preventing you from locking in a date?
Then, you should consider using the Lock Your Fare service from Akasa Air for your potential booking! Using the ‘Lock Your Fare’ service, you can hold your booking and fare by paying a nominal fee!
This benefit allows you to make future reservations at the current fare, protecting your booking against dynamic pricing and allowing you to save a seat before the flight is full.
However, passengers should be careful, since the Lock Your Fare service is time-sensitive, and in most cases, payment needs to be done at the given fare before the period expires.
At Akasa Air, we have up to 15 days validity on Lock Your Fare service and a very nominal fee of Rs. 250 per sector per passenger.
