Emirates has launched a feature that enables travellers to hold fares for up to 48 hours.
The ‘Hold My Fare’ option, available when booking a ticket on Emirates.com, lets passengers “lock-in fares” for a nominal fee.
To hold the best fare customers are asked to authorise the reservation, which will then be held on their credit card. The fee is released back to the customer’s credit card if tickets are paid for within 48 hours.
Emirates executive VP Thierry Antinori, said: “Emirates is committed to finding innovative ways to make the online booking experience even more convenient.
“With Hold My Fare, we are providing our customers added flexibility to firm up their travel plans at their own pace. Customers can finalise the details of their journey, organise accommodation with their travel companions or family with the peace of mind that their preferred flights won’t sell out and that they are guaranteed that their fares will not be affected.”
In March, Ryanair announced it was launching a similar option as part of their “always getting better” programme.
