My son I and plan to make a trip from Florida to England early next summer. We can settle on an outbound date, but can only make a wild guess at the return date. It all depends on family considerations not yet settled.
I do know that open returns are absurdly priced (way way more than $1000) so we need to chose a return date, a wild guess return date. And we will almost certainly have to change it later.
So my question is which airlines (or services like travelocity, expedia) are more reasonable than others when it comes to fee for change of date and new reservations? And, better, is there any way of finding out what the policies are short of booking (or almost booking but not paying for) the tickets in order to get access to the relevant parts of the terms and conditions?
Other people who are not rich must have faced this dilemma. How do they approach it? I know it would be cheaper to settle return dates months ahead, but it just isn't possible, doesn't suit our itinerary (which includes a lengthy drive across France).
