Eurowings has introduced 72-hour airfare reservations enabling customers to save the price of any flight found and then make plans with family or friends, or book other components of their trip, such as concert tickets, hire cars or hotels, calmly and without rushing.
The 'Save Your Price' reservation expires automatically after 72 hours. It costs two euros per person and journey leg on short-haul and ten euros on long-haul flights.
The option is also available to travel agencies and customers do not need to pay the airfare during their reservation period; payment is only due when the reservation option is converted to a confirmed booking.
The usual additional services such as hire car, rail tickets or insurance, can be added during the normal booking process on conversion of the option.
The new system can only be used up to 21 days before departure, after this the function is no longer available. It also doesn’t apply to promotional fare prices that are marked 'Sale' and excludes Flex fares.
