Consolidator is an airfare broker. We are your
link between airline flights and lower fares. Airlines sell only
published fares, we sell a variety of different fare types, always
looking for the best deal on the market.
Airlines always distribute a small portion of their seats through
consolidators at sizable discounts. Such discounted
rates are not available every day nor on every flight, so it helps to be
flexible. We use a variety of different fares and searching methods to
get bigger savings for our clients.
It's natural to assume that by going directly
to the airline and "cutting out the middleman" you would pay less than
if you went through a travel agent. But airlines have no reason, and
certainly no obligation, to offer you the lowest price. Their goal,
whether on the phone or on the Internet, is to charge highest rate
market can bear today. That's why their prices are much more closer to
departure - they have complex algorithms to maximize profits by smart
We are able to find much better rates and will
offer our extensive industry knowledge to consult on all possible
flights to select the one fitting your preferences best.
We'll be there for you after the sale as well,
if you need our help or to make changes.
We build lasting relationships and do
everything to ensure our clients are happy and spread good word about
us. Your satisfaction is essential to our success.
Such sites are often owned by one of the big
airlines and simply are an online robot that aggregates all published
fares on one screen. They scan many different airlines but don't really
have any discounts. You can find a flight with them and then just go
directly to that airline to book it. Our fares on the contrary are very
different and much lower than published.
Our discounts are very deep, sometimes
reaching as much as 70% or more. Average discounts, however are 15-35%
for most flights. It depends on many factors like destination, airline
and seat availability.
If you want to travel during peak season like
Christmas and New Years, book as early as possible, especially for long
routes like USA - Australia.
If you want specific dates, especially
weekends, and you are picky about airline choice and itinerary, book
early - 6 to 10 months in advance. This usually will ensure you get
great savings and itinerary that you want.
If you are very flexible with travel dates and
airlines we have fantastic deals on short notice of 7 to 30 days. Such
fares will have offer discounts as much as 70% off as regular fares are
very high closer to departure.
If you want to travel in the summer, book your
tickets in fall. Yes, that means 8-11 months out. Summer is the busiest
season and airlines will release just a handful of amazing deals on
great flights very early in advance. The closer to departure the fewer
good discounted options there will be to top destinations.
Once we know all details about your travel
plans we'll search within our big airline database and call many
airlines consolidator desks to check all possible deals. Your agent will
compile best options and present them to you. We'll book the flight that
suits you most.
Once you settle on preferred itinerary and
provide us with all necessary information we'll start ticketing process.
This may take anywhere from several hours to a few days depending on the
fare type and airline, since some of our providers are overseas in a
different time zone. Usually we receive e-tickets from the airline
Once ticketing is complete you will receive
an email with full itinerary, e-tickets and confirmation numbers, which
you can use to review your booking online.
To be able to sell airline tickets an agency
has to be accredited by one of the airline industry authorities, which
will review company's financial standing and business practices. We have
accreditation with ARC and ASTA and you can easily verify our standing
on their sites.
Better Business Bureau (BBB) is another
authority which oversees that companies adhere to solid business
practices and helps customers resolve any issues if such arise.
We have numerous reviews from previous
satisfied clients on our site.
