In today’s dynamic travel environment airlines offer price incentives to book early with lower pricing for those quick to snap up limited and discount seat availability. However, they require payment upfront to confirm your flights. This is will usually be inside of 3 days from reservation, with some fares offering 7 to 14 days payment options. This way the airlines have confirmed, paid seats without worrying that there will be a number of seats released closer to departure. Unfortunately, the days of having a long time to pay off your flights are behind us when using return point to point airfares.
