Hi guys,
I've never traveled via flight before. So want to know so many things about Domestic Flights. I want to book cheapest 2-way return ticket from Patna-Bangalore on 2nd-8th Feb 2012. There so many sites like goibibo, makemytrip, cleartrip, ezeego etc offering discounts and cashback offer. But before booking any tickets i want know these things:

1) If i want to cancel flight 1 or 2 day before departure, then how much they gonna refund my money, if ticket costs: Rs.4000 (base fare= Rs.800). :?:

2) On some sites like ezeego offering 100% cash back on base fare. , what after getting Rs.800 cashback, if i cancel my ticket. how much they will refund? :?:

3) What is the meaning :idea: of Partially Refundable and Refundable ?


For example:

Here is the detail of ezeego ticket fare
Patna to Bangalore - Indigo 6E 342 | Bangalore to Patna - Indigo 6E 339
Rs 1600 (Fare) + 5910 (Fees) + 10 (Service tax) + 410 (Surcharges) = Total: Rs 7930

I was charged 750 to 1000 for cancellation or date change. Same for both.

All websites offer similar rates actually. I can vouch for makemytrip, yatra and makemytrip (got discount for this once :))

You always get charged for cancellation.

Looks good. They might be talking only about the base fare.
I'm searching for the fine print. They might just offer you coupons for next purchase calling it cash back etc. See if it is instant cash back. Can't make out much from the information on that page alone.

Looks like it is an instant cash back. That is good. So you need to book 45days in advance and in one of these flights :Air India (AI only), Go Air, IndiGo, Jet Airways, Kingfisher Airlines and SpiceJet.

Go ahead bro. Looks good.

Just booked tickets from makemytrip. I can't believe I forgot about this offer. LOL :))

YES ! Exactly.

In my opinion @kool

1. Buy the tickets directly from the respective airline website only.

2. The ticket price will be the lowest.

3. To get further discount you can use your credit card promo code.

For Example :

a.) Buy a flight ticket from Skylights Redirect for Patna --- Bangalore sector.

b.) Make payment using your HDFC Bank Credit Card and enter FLYHDFC as promo code during checkout.

c.) You get a 15% discount of the base fare.

( Such discounts are available on Indigo , JetAirways , JetLite, AirIndia, etc. )

Regarding Refunds.

In my opinion, getting a refund on flight tickets is a joke.

a) First you need to pay Rs 700/- or Rs 1000/-

b) You will be refunded back only the base fare amount, which is actually of no use since its a very small amount.

c) NO AIRLINE will refund you the taxes / surcharge back.

^^Yup...practically experienced it while booking from SpiceJet website..

3rd party booking sites charge extra for service...

Only ever booked directly off the Emirates website.

Rest all from makemytrip, yatra and the likes who charge 250 for domestic and 750-1000 for international.

The only benefit of the third party sites are comparison flight prices and timings and booking connecting flights etc with ease.
