What is CheapOair?

CheapOair was founded in 2005 to help budget travelers explore the globe. The company is a one-stop-shop where anyone can conveniently book flights, hotels, cars or travel packages for their next trip. What makes CheapOair prices competitive is their thorough searching system that includes roughly 600 airlines to help customers find the lowest prices available. 

Plan Your Next Trip

When you visit their website, the first thing you'll notice is the easy-to-use platform where users can input their destination and be able to find affordable and complete vacation deals. CheapOair says that it is able to filter through numerous travel information through its data collection technology to show users the most relevant answers to their queries. It is easy to use even for those new to the website.

In terms of functionality, the CheapOair website allows travelers to prepare all aspects of their travel itinerary.  From flight to vacation packages, you can simply book through the website or via phone call and have all your reservations ready.

Their "Weekend Getaways" packages will show you all the available money-saver deals. Whether Las Vegas to Los Angeles or New York to Florida, you can check all their pre-made bundles so you can just pick the best one for your budget.

Customers Rewards Plan

Loyal customers deserve to be rewarded. CheapOair has created a rewards system that is praised for being very customer-centric. For starters, you can get $25 just by referring a friend. Members can also get up to 20% off flights and 55% off hotels just by repeatedly booking through them. Aside from discounts, successive bookings can also double the rewards points you earn, making it easier to access exclusive privileges and discounts.

Aside from the rewards account, members can also get a CheapOair credit card that earns more points for airfare and other reservations. 

Cancellation Policy

With cancellation fees ranging from $100-$250, it is not ideal to cancel bookings. While most airline tickets are non-refundable, some allow cancellations but the fee will be put on credit for future use. However, the credit usually comes with an expiration date. Better use the credit within the allowed time before you lose your refund.

Here is a detailed summary of their cancellation policy:

If cancellation is within the first 24 hours after booking:
$50 for domestic flights
$75 for international, first-class or business class

If you cancel after the first 24-hour period:
$50 to cancel with a future credit, $100 without credit 
$100 for business and first-class tickets, $250 for international economy flights, business and first-class tickets

Lastly, cancellations are accommodated over the phone with a customer representative or through a cancellation request form.
