    Dial A Flight Price Difference 12th Jun 17 at 4:16 AM
    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone can help.

    I have booked and paid for a holiday to dubai with dial a flight yesterday at 18:00 total trip cost me £3300.

    At 20:00 i phone dial a flight again and spoke to a different advisor. I went through the booking process again for a relative who wanted to go on the same holiday. However this time the holiday came up to £2759. FOR THE EXACT SAME HOLIDAY NOTHING CHANGED.

    In 2 hours there was a price difference of £600. Is this allowed? what shall I do??

    Prices can change at any time. What did Dial a Flight say at 20:00 when you asked to cancel and rebook your own holiday at your relative's price?

    Well done! Luckily you didn't get much advice here, or it might have put you off trying...

    good result. I am assuming this was a flight + hotel. If the hotel had dropped price they may have been able to cancel/rebook that element or reduce their commission they were taking - doubt you would have got this result with flight-only unless they had not yet booked the flights and they reduced
    none the less better the money in your pocket
