    Easyjet FLEXI Fare book the wrong date trick: "only available 120 days in advance"?? 12th Jul 17 at 10:33 AM
    Hi all

    I am looking to book an Easyjet flight for this time next month. I've been keeping an eye on the fluctuating price and waiting to pounce when it gets low (IF it gets low). It's a risky game...

    In it's uncanny way, MSE sent my weekly newsletter today and there was a link to an Easyjet article:

    http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/easyjet-tricks?utm_source=MSE_Newsletter&utm_medium=email& utm_term=11-Jul-17-33566005&utm_campaign=nt-hiya&utm_content=15

    I wasn't aware of the first trick on the list and it turns out it could potentially save me a fair bit of cash. My flight in question is on 13/08. There is a much cheaper flight on 02/08, so that falls within the "3 weeks before I want to fly" bracket. So far so good.

    The bit that has me a little worried is where it says in the article "It's worth noting Flexifares aren't available on every flight and are only available 120 days in advance.)". It would definitely seem that Flexi fares are available on 13/08 and 02/08, although they are much nearer than 120 days away. So.... Has something changed since the article was written? Is the article wrong? Am I misunderstanding it? etc etc...

    Would appreciate any advice massively

    Cheers

    Max

    I think they mean less than 120 days in advance.

    It's typical MSE garbled English, it should say that they are only available UP TO 120 days in advance.

    Aha - that makes sense. Thanks for the clarifications. I do tend to sometimes over think these things so not so sure if it is me or the "garbled English".

    Anyhow, it's clear now so cheers for that.

    I'm also keen to know which of the FLEXI Fare features get transferred when you change flight date. IE - which of these:

    - Free 20kg hold baggage
    - Up front seat
    - Speedy Boarding
    - £7 food and drink voucher

    I'll Live Chat it with EJ when I'm not running between my PC and other jobs, and up date here in due course. If anyone knows in the meantime though...

    Cheers

    Well, I've been in touch and they have confirmed that all of the features are transferred when you change date. Great!

    I do have another question though, but it is quite unrelated to this topic so I'll start a new thread...
