MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online travel agency vayama.com is offering peak summer airfare discounts to help travelers hedge against oil spikes due to the instability in the Middle East and North Africa.
"Airlines are currently competing for passengers traveling from late March through the first half of May. At the same time, they are planning to add new fuel surcharges, starting as early as April," says Andre Hesselink, vayama's CEO. "This means the time to buy peak summer travel is now. It won't get any cheaper due to these upcoming fuel surcharges."
Vayama has designed a 'Peak Summer, Peak Oil' travel strategy based on B Carriers. These are international airlines that offer excellent service and value, together with fast connections in uncongested secondary airports in Europe and Asia, like Dusseldorf, Seoul or Taipei. Additionally, these airlines offer generous luggage allowances when compared to USA Legacy Carriers. For peak summer travel, vayama is offering great deals 'through the side door' to Europe and Asia. These will be on excellent B Carriers like XL France Airlines to Paris, Martinair to Amsterdam, Air Berlin to Dusseldorf, China Airlines to Manila via Taipei and many more. Travelers will do well by hedging against oil spikes by booking early and taking advantage of these very competitive summer deals before the inevitable fuel surcharges arrive.
