Costs of travelling with children by air and questions to ask airlines prior to booking



Costs of travelling with children by
air


With the credit crunch hitting everyone
harder each month even the annual summer holiday can bring it’s own
problems, both financial and emotional.

When flying with children, domestically
or further afield, there is much to consider and check before booking.

Some of the more important questions to
bear in mind are :-

Are there excess charges if so what
are they?
 
Is it possible to take a pushchair
with you and, if so, what if any, extra costs are involved.
 
Can you take car seats on the plane
and are there any extra charges?
 
Up to what age do children travel
free of charge?
 
What is the scale of charges for
children’s fares?
 
Are there children’s meals
available;  if so, are there any special requirements for
ordering before travel?
 
Will there be any onboard
entertainment provided on board for the children?
 
Are there any additional check-in
charges?

 

N.B. 
Charges and regulations change on a regular basis so it is imperative to
check with your particular airline at the time of booking to ensure you
are in possession of the most up to date information.
