Our Editor’s Review
CheapOair has numerous coupon codes for airfare and some good hotel deals. Moving on to….. the fees. Oh man, the fees! We were very frustrated when testing CheapOair’s airfare prices against the competition, because the first result that comes up includes the taxes/government fees, but it does not include their total booking fee. You are forced to click on the lowest available fare (which takes you to the final booking screen) to see the total price with all taxes and booking fees. And how much is the CheapOair booking fee? It’s $26! That is more than the coupon code discount that they provided me with….oh, geee….thanks! After all was said and done, CheapOair rarely came up with the best flight prices during our search. Perhaps CheapOair should revise their search algorithms so that they can come up with better prices, or lower their booking fee. It is 2012, and the fact that CheapOair increased their booking fee from $24 to $26 in the last year really turned us off as well. They have also increased their hotel booking fees since the last time we reviewed CheapOair’s website. True, CheapOair always has coupon codes for $15 – $20 off, but this does not even cover their booking fee.
Let me make it clear that this doesn’t make CheapOair a scam as some customers complain, because they clearly disclose the amount of their fees from what we could tell. On the final booking screen, click on the link that says “Taxes & Fees” for a complete list of the fees on your reservation. Most of the fees are government and/or airline imposed, however the $26 CheapOair airfare booking fee is not.
We are also not impressed with CheapOair’s “lowest price guarantee”* as it only reimburses you $10 if you find a cheaper flight or hotel elsewhere and this does not even include airline websites (aka. where the cheapest prices are usually had). Save yourself the headache and try searching (or bidding) on airfare at Priceline.com or Hotwire.com. For international flights, we find that Vayama.com has a nice search engine.
