CheapAir.com Launches Price Drop Payback(SM) Guarantee Air Fare Shopping Engine Gives Customers Buying Confidence and the Best Deal
CALABASAS, Calif., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Anyone who's ever shopped for a plane ticket knows the stress of deciding when to buy. Fares fluctuate constantly, seemingly without rhyme or reason, and the price you "score" today could drop next week. So how do you know if you're getting the best deal? One site, CheapAir.com, is helping travelers buy with confidence, thanks to the launch of its new Price Drop Payback(SM) program, which reimburses customers up to $100 per ticket if their fare drops before their trip.
CheapAir.com is the only U.S. travel site to offer this unique buyer protection, and the program is simple. If a traveler buys airline tickets through CheapAir.com and the price for their itinerary goes down any time before their trip, the company will pay them back the difference in the form of a travel voucher for up to $100 a ticket.
"Buying a plane ticket is a lot like playing the stock market. You see a fare you think is a good deal, but a week later it could be higher or lower. This makes people stressed and confused, wondering when to pull the trigger," said Jeff Klee, chief executive officer of CheapAir.com. "We want our customers to know they're getting the absolute best fare they possibly can. We created Price Drop Payback to take the worry out of knowing when to buy and to reassure folks that they're getting a good deal, guaranteed."
Founded in 1989, CheapAir.com features an air fare shopping engine that uses a proprietary algorithm to scour the web for the best deals and most comfortable flights, making travel research and flight booking easy for the traveler. The site's user-friendly interface is clean and simple to navigate compared to many of the old school travel sites that force users to sift through pages and pages of lackluster itineraries. CheapAir.com whittles flights down to only the best results, saving people valuable time in their trip planning experience.
CheapAir.com has been testing its Price Drop Payback for the past few months, with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Customers appreciate the program's ease of use and anytime access. They simply have to visit the My Trips section of the company's web site any time after purchase and with just one click, they can see if their fare has gone down. If it has, CheapAir.com will issue a travel credit immediately.
"It's our mission to radically simplify the way people shop for travel deals," notes Klee. "We're constantly working on giving people tools and advice to make more intelligent choices, so they can find the best fares and flights and enjoy their journey."
