The safest way to book flights

Buying flights can be expensive, so you want to ensure that you choose the safest way to book flights in order to protect your money. You'll be pleased to hear that you've landed on the safest travel agency to book flights, Alternative Airlines.

Alternative Airlines offers a number of insurance products that you can purchase on the 'Passenger Details' page to safeguard your booking. These insurance products make Alternative Airlines a safe place to book flights as this may not be an option available when you purchase through an airline directly. We advise that our customers buy Cancellation Protection, Cancel For Any Reason and Lost Baggage Protection at checkout.

Cancellation Protection features

Cancellation Protection

One of the reasons that Alternative Airlines is the safest site to book flights is due to its Refund Protect Insurance. With Cancellation Protection, you or any member of your booking are able to claim a full refund on your flight if it can no longer be used if you're faced with an 'emergency circumstance'.

An example of an 'emergency circumstance' includes adverse weather, changes to exam dates, death of a close family member, Government travel ban, injury/illness, mechanical breakdown and more. If you wish to protect your money, Cancellation Protection is available to buy at checkout for a small extra fee.

Find out the full terms & conditions for a full breakdown of what is considered as an unforeseeable circumstance.

Add Cancel For Any Reason during booking process

Cancel Your Flight For Any Reason

Cancelling a flight can be stressful because of airline policies that make it difficult to get a refund. You might only get a travel credit or no money back at all. At Alternative Airlines we offer a "Cancel For Any Reason" guarantee during the booking process that lets you cancel your flight anytime for any reason and get 70% of your money back. This gives you more control over your trip in case of unexpected circumstances. To use Cancel For Any Reason, you'll need to add this to your booking before checkout. Find out how with our dedicated guide linked below.

Lost Baggage Insurance

Another reason why Alternative Airlines is the safest way to book flights is because it lets you add Baggage Insurance to your booking. By adding our Baggage Protection to your booking for a small extra fee at checkout you can claim up to $2,000 in lost baggage compensation if your checked or carry-on baggage can't be found within 96 hours.

Lost Baggage Insurance is available to purchase at a small additional fee for checked baggage at the time of booking.

When you book through Alternative Airlines you can add our Baggage Protection product on ANY flight including American Airlines, British Airways, EasyJet or any of the 600+ airlines available on our site. Baggage Protection may not be a service available on flights directly with the airline, so booking with Alternative Airlines is simply the safest way to book flights.
