Santa Rosa, California (PRWEB) March 24, 2008
BargainTravel.com, a leader in international consolidator flights, has noticed a major increase in bookings that they attribute to the recent spate of fuel surcharge increases by many of the major air carriers.
Recently United Airlines, Continental Airlines and Northwest Airlines all raised their pricing due to increased fuel costs and other carriers are expected to follow their lead. Because oil has been selling at record levels, the air carriers must do something to offset the higher fuel pricing as absorbing them is not an option.
"Many of the flights offered through our website provide major savings to the consumer as the tickets are offered through a database of flight consolidators," said Stormy Knight, partner of BargainTravel.com and a Certified Travel Agent (CTA).
"Consolidators are companies that negotiate with airlines to buy up seats that would otherwise not be sold, many people think of them as a type of wholesaler. We work with some of the largest flight consolidators in the United States and offer an excellent selection of flights originating in the U.S. and Canada to places throughout the world."
In addition to great savings on flights, the BargainTravel.com web site also has an RSS news feed that allows anyone to receive travel news without having to go out and search for it. The news feed coupled with their active forum provides visitors to the site with up to date flight information.
