Canada's Number Two Online Travel Sales Site Moves to Protect Travellers
TORONTO, Nov. 3 /CNW/ - FlightNetwork.com, one of Canada's highest volume online travel sales sites (second only to Expedia in Canada), today announced that in consideration of travellers, they have waived their cancellation and re-booking fees for the duration of flu season (November-April 1st 2010).
"As our partner airlines work to define their policies on travel during the H1N1 flu season, we are in a unique position to immediately protect our customers' interests by waiving FlightNetwork.com's cancellation and re-booking fees," said Naman Budhdeo, President, CEO and Founder of FlightNetwork.com.
FlightNetwork.com's waived fees do not include any cancellation or re-booking fees imposed by airlines. Travellers need to provide a doctor's note confirming their illness in order to have FlightNetwork.com's fees waived on travel.
"We have chosen to waive our rebooking and cancellation fees, but as airlines define their H1N1 travel policies, the best way for travellers to protect themselves from additional fees due to illness is to purchase travel insurance," added Budhdeo.
