Air On Your Own

 

Other Airlines

Sometimes our clients like to search and compare airfares. With most domestic flights you can compare pricing rather easily on your own if you know where to look. We can share a couple of things: 

Start with a good search engine that compares many airlines at once, and then allows you to book directly with the airline. 
A couple of current favorites we like are Kayak.com and Mobissimo.com. These will compare many airlines (and other search engines. You can also adjust the search window on these engines as to the time of day you would like to depart or arrive.

When using search engines -
We have found it best to search here, but book directly with the airline for better service. This is especially true in the case of flight changes, delays, and cancellations – so you don’t get kicked around in these situations. When push comes to shove, the Airlines treat their direct-booked clients better.
AND -- We always recommend Travel Insurance ! See our Cruise FAQs for more about travel insurance.

For reservations call DanceFun at 1-866-326-2338 or 1-405-282-8989
Monday – Thursday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Central Time.
