I'm trying to arrange air travel to South Africa using expedia. We want to fly into Johannesburg and return two weeks later from Cape Town.
Fying in and out of different cities is a little pricey but I've found a less expensive return flight into and out of Cape Town. Our flight on the way there is via Johannesburg. I was thinking maybe that we could just get off in Johannesburg and not take the last leg of the flight. However, we would have to arrange to retrieve our luggage in Johannesburg instead of having it fly on to Cape Town! Has anyone ever done something like that? Is it a little too risky? I'm not trying to be cheap ... flights to SA are really expensive for a family of four and the cost savings are significant if we do it this way.
I would appreciate any advice...
