The general rule with budget airlines is the earlier you book, the cheaper the flight. However, this is not without its exceptions, and one of the most frustrating elements of “dynamic pricing” is seeing your budget fare drop further after you have booked it.
easyJet’s “price promise” is a little-publicised benefit that guarantees that if you find your easyJet flight has reduced in price after you’ve booked it, they will refund you the difference as a credit voucher.
The easyJet price promise is viewed on a “one way fare” basis, so if just one of your legs on a return flight becomes available cheaper, you can invoke the guarantee.
Key terms of the easyJet price promise are as follows: (more…)
UK loyalty programme Nectar, which (amongst many other things) you can earn and spend on easyJet flights, is currently offering a bonus 1000 points (worth a minimum of £5) when you send a parcel with DHL before 28 February.
In addition to the 1000 points bonus, you will also earn 2 points for every £1 spent sending parcels.
The 1000 points introductory bonus and ongoing points-earning will apply regardless of the destination or cost of the DHL parcel service you choose.
We’ve written before about the fact that Nectar is essentially easyJet’s frequent flyer scheme.
As such, any easyJet flyer should ensure that they are a Nectar member, and book their flights through the Nectar e-shops website.
Plus, book your easyJet flights before 22 October 2014 and you will earn double Nectar points on all easyJet bookings, including on your extra luggage and credit/debit card charge. So that’s 2 Nectar points per £1 spend on easyJet.
We’ve pointed out on a few occasions that Nectar is effectively the “frequent flyer programme” for easyJet.
A very straightforward way to boost your points total is to simply create a free online account with First Great Western (trains) and then link your Nectar card to it, here. You’ll get an almost instant free 200 Nectar points for doing so.
With British Airways returning to Malta in March, competition for the UK traveller is intensifying. The upshot of this is you can currently book a UK return flight plus 7 nights accommodation in Malta for as little as £225 a head (see further below…)
BA offers “BA Holidays”, a way of booking your flights and hotel through BA, often for a substantial discount when compared to the cost of booking them separately. EasyJet offers a similar service through “EasyJet Holidays”, and it is probably no coincidence that just as BA starts to operate, EasyJet has launched a hefty discount on its holidays over the same period.
As a result, we have secured a £50 discount on any EasyJet holidays to Malta. Simply book your holiday here, and enter the code “EASTER50” in the “gift vouchers and promotion code” box on the payment page. (more…)
