Africa beckons with its magnificent landscapes, diverse wildlife, and unique cultures. If you're thinking of embarking on an unforgettable journey, you're in the right place. Being the seasoned Travel Experts we are, we're here to guide you every step of the way, ensuring your journey is nothing short of extraordinary. Here's everything you need to know when booking your flight to Africa.
Who Handles Your Bookings?
Some travellers prefer booking their international flights themselves while relying on us to book the domestic ones. Although it may seem less expensive, this method can come at a cost. For example, if there's a delay or schedule change, airlines might not adjust your connecting flights to accommodate this.
So, instead, let our team of Travel Experts handle all your flights, ensuring all segments are in sync and you can enjoy a worry-free journey.
It may sound elementary, but before you start dreaming of African sunsets, check your passport! We may not require it for booking, but airlines and immigration will. Ensure it's valid for at least six months post your travel date. Moreover, keep at least two blank pages for stamps per country to ensure hassle-free flying to Africa.
Timing is Everything
The age-old saying, "the early bird catches the worm", holds true when booking flights to Africa. Flight availability fluctuates based on the season, and peak times often show reduced seat availability.
Changing Airline Features
Our Travel Experts have noted that some airlines are phasing out first-class, reserving it for specific routes. Instead, they're introducing "economy plus," which is an excellent option if you want comfort without the business-class price tag. After all, wouldn't you rather splurge on the actual safari than the journey to get there?
Travelling With Children
Journeying with little ones can be both exciting and a tad daunting. In the airline world, a child ranges from age 2-11, while infants are 0-2 years.
Remember that it's crucial to book a seat for a child, whereas you can opt for a lap seat for infants. While some destinations may not mandate an unabridged birth certificate for children, we always recommend you have one handy to fly to Africa without a hitch.
