How to find a cheap last minute ticket?
We cannot repeat it enough, to go cheap, you must first compare. Between the flights of large companies and those of low cost companies, the price margin is substantial. Sure, the big companies include a number of services and more amenities, but do you really still need a suitcase in the hold or to have a meal? It all depends on the length of your stay and the place of destination. Here's how to find a cheap last minute flight.
How to get a refund for my ticket in the event of cancellation due to COVID-19?
No worries here: the airline will have to reimburse you for your plane ticket if your flight is canceled due to COVID-19. Since May 13, 2020, the European Commission has authorized the company to offer you a credit note valid for 12 months. If you have not used it after this period, the credit note is refundable. You can also refuse the credit note to obtain a refund directly.
