Warning - FlyFar.ca

Jump to last reply

Just a heads-up if you see a fantastic airfare from FlyFar.ca -- it may not be what it appears.

I've been checking airfare regularly the last several months, so when a Skyscanner alert showed airfare to London from a nearby airport for $533 round-trip (about $300 less than it's been running all along from this airport), I jumped at it. I hadn't seen FlyFar.ca on Skyscanner before and thought maybe it was a new company.

Even though FlyFar.ca's site said the $585 rate (up a bit from Skyscanner's $533) "includes taxes and fees," the company must consider "charges" separately, because that adds $300 to $400 more to *each* ticket. End result -- no better deal than the other airlines are offering.

The way costs are reported on the website, though, is confusing, and unless you carefully read everything before you confirm (which of course everyone should do every single time with any purchase), it would be easy to get duped.

I did some quick Googling of this company and reviews are mixed. A couple people have had good experiences but many more travelers have reported flights cancelled at the last minute (and no new flight provided, with thousands of dollars' worth of tickets hung up in the system), additional credit card fees assessed, phone lines cut off every time they try to lodge a complaint, promises of refunds followed by no refunds and no return calls for days, etc.

It might all be OK, but just do your homework first and realize the potential risks with this group. It's also somehow affiliated with FlightNetwork.com, according to the page source info on the website, and FlightNetwork has pretty low ratings on Yelp and TripAdvisor.
