Flight booking websites: cancellation times

Postby nielba » Thu Mar 14, 2019 5:39 pm

im not sure this is the right place but yeah, i will try..

so, basically i was looking for 100% reliable websites for booking and later cancelling flight tickets..
i already read few here but updated infos are always nice and comfy.. for example i was personally checking agent.ru and they say ur flight reservation lasts only 4h if u dont pay (and not few days as many "old" reports here)..

thx to everyone..!

skiplagged.com and priceline give you 24 hours. I think it can vary by the country you are in.

Emirates allow 6 hours, and up to 72 hours for a "small reservation fee".

I think all you need to bring is a print-out of the flight tickets, right? The embassy is not going to check if you really are boarding that plane or have cancelled in the meantime.

Unless I am wrong, you can simply book, print out, and cancel.

i mean, I know they are not going to check if I actually board the plane, but I guess I need the tickets to be real for the whole process of getting the visa, 4 days or whatever it is..
it I book one, print and in few hours it's already expired I don't even have the time to get to the embassy and submit the papers..
