This is a warning to anyone thinking about booking a flight with BudgetAir!
On Nov 5th I was looking for the a flight from Winnipeg, MB to Indianapolis, ID on Nov 14th to visit my mother on her 50th birthday. I came across a great deal on Budgetair.ca. When I tried to book the flight online a error popped up so I called the 1-800 line so they could help me. The lady I spoke to helped me re-book my flight. only to find out that I now had 2 tickets to Indianapolis booked. She apologized and insured me that she would have one ticket reversed.
On Nov 8th I get an email from Budget Air "We recently received your online booking request. Quality control has determined that your booking could not be processed at the fare that was originally quoted. Unfortunately, the airline was unable to accept the fare that was quoted earlier and as a result, your reservation has been cancelled." 4 days later!!!!
So I decide to look at the price of a ticket now, $1200. The ticket I booked was $584. It has now doubled in price. This is not a price I can pay. So I guess I will be sitting out this Birthday party Mom.
So to all my Tripadvisor friend...... Please beware. I'd hate for this to happen to anyone else.
