Hold a Fare or Make Changes without Fees

Ever see an amazing fare on Airfarewatchdog.com, but you have to call your husband/wife/brother/posse to coordinate plans? Or just want to shop around for a bit to make sure it's a good deal? Sure you have. And while you waited, that $312 round-trip tax-included fare to Berlin suddenly jumped back up to $1,000. Well next time, book it and decide later. Many airlines allow you to hold a fare and get a full refund within 24 hours of booking if you change your mind or make a mistake in the booking process. Many, but not all. We've got the 411 on who allows what in the blog.

From the Mailbag: Gone Today, Here Tomorrow

Q: Do airlines decrease and increase the number of seats available at advertised sale prices? I ask because last week I saw a sale advertised on an airline web ite and went to find seats for my dates of travel but was unsuccessful. However, the next day my cousin, who was making the same trip to attend a wedding, found seats at the sale fare on the exact same flights I searched the day before.

A: Find out.
