The Best Out of Basic Economy Fares

Posted by Holly Hou on 8/21/20 12:24 PM

Traveling doesn’t always have to be luxurious, especially if you’re making a short trip and just need to get from Point A to Point B. If this is the case, basic economy may be the fare you’re looking for! Basic economy is the most affordable option airlines offer travelers, in exchange for giving up some of the benefits of a standard economy ticket, which varies depending on your airline.


Basic economy fares are generally the most restrictive. However, due to the pandemic, airlines have been more flexible with flight changes across all ticket types. Changes are now allowed by most airlines offering basic economy fares. During this time, you don’t have to worry about being locked in if you have a basic economy fare. If you’re ready to travel, you can take advantage of this flexibility and fly with peace of mind at the most affordable price!

Is wanderlust calling or does your job simply require you to travel abroad? Whatever your reason for international travel may be, you’ll always want to check your travel documents to make sure you have everything you need.
