Air France: now hold web fares for two weeks

Air France has launched an online service which allows passengers to hold a reservation and fare on any of its European routes for up to 14 days.

The Time to Think service costs from £10 per passenger and will appeal to business travellers who want an element of flexibility without buying a fully flexible ticket. It will mean they can reserve seats on a number of services and only buy the one at the date and time they need.

If the passenger confirms their reservation with payment during that period, the boarding pass is issued 30 hours to departure. If the reservation is not confirmed, it is cancelled at the end of the 14-day period and only the Time to Think fee is lost.

The service will also be useful for leisure passengers who want to take advantage of a sale fare and need to confirm with other passengers before confirming the booking.

Henri Hourcade, general manager, Air France KLM UK and Ireland, says: “Whether it’s business or leisure, we know that people’s travel plans can change which is why we’ve launched our “Time to Think” period. Having the option to reserve the best European flights and fares saves our customers time and money.”
