There are so many tips and tricks to get the best deals and pay the lowest fare for your trip, and there are apps like Hooper and Kayak that will let you know when the price of the airline drops. Most travelers believe that booking a certain number of weeks or days before the departure date is the best time to book, whereas others will ask you to wait until the last minute for a bargain price on that last available seat. But the fact is that all these tell-a-tales not always work.

FairFly is an app that will monitor your existing bookings for any price drops, calculate the fees involved in making any changes to the tickets, and let you know if you can still save money or not. This allows you to cancel your original ticket and book it again at the lower price.

August 7, 2015

northkoreatimezone

If you are one of the few thousands of visitors to the Hermit Kingdom, take a note of this – North Korea will be setting their clocks back by 30 minutes on August 15, 2015. The state news agency, KCNA, has announced that North Korea will set to “Pyongyang time” on August 15 , which is the 70th anniversary of liberation from Japan.

Currently at GMT +9 hours, the country will reset the time to GMT +08:30, as it was set during Japan’s rule over what was single Korea from 1910 to 1945. South Korea says it uses the same time zone as Japan because it’s more practical and conforms to international practice.

If you’re asked to volunteer for not taking that flight, then do not. Even if the airline’s offer of cash or voucher sounds awesome. Let them bump you involuntarily, and denied boarding. This way you can receive much more in compensation.

When we think about tourism today, what usually crosses our minds are some beach retreats or capital cities. But, most of the people already had enough of the crowded beaches and even more crowded cities. Turning to village tourism makes sense if we observe it like that. And don’t be mistaken by thinking that nothing ever happens in villages and that there is nothing to do when you are there. Take Australian Kin Kin, for example. This whole area is well known for great food, interesting art scene and amazing scenery. Now that we have your attention, we would like to tell you what you can do in this lovely place.

Air Kenya to halt operations on Masai Mara’s airstrip

July 20, 2015

keekorokairstrip

Citing lack of minimum safety standards, Air Kenya will halt operations into the Masai Mara’s main airfield, Keekorok, with immediate effect. This means that if you’re already booked on those flights, then you need to contact your tour operators or Air Kenya directly for alternate arrangements.

Instead of Keekorok airstrip, Air Kenya will have all pick ups or drop offs to Olkiombo Airstrip, which is about 47 km (about 1.5 hour drive between the airstrips) from Keeorok. This affects all the air safaris during the peak annual migration period. Dropping this airstrip will no doubt cause challenges for lodge and camp operators which rely on the use of this particular airfield.

SALE: WOW Air – $99 One Way: Boston / Baltimore to Paris / Amsterdam

July 15, 2015

wowair

Icelandic low-cost carrier WOW Air started services to some destinations in Europe from U.S. last year. And now they have announced $99 fares one-way to Paris (CDG) and Amsterdam (AMS) from Boston (BOS) and Baltimore-Washington (BWI), the two airports served by WOW in the U.S.

Dates for this fare are limited. When you’re flying with WOW to AMS or CDG, you would not actually be flying non-stop from BOS or BWI to your destination, but flights stop in Reykjavik (KEF). However, WOW has set up their schedule in a way which ensures that, barring unforeseen circumstances, all connections are short (usually under 2.5 hours) and comfortable (no need to change terminals or pass through security again).
