ChoiceAir
 
I am considering a repo cruise - Bayonne to San Juan - I have found decent air on the open market. I would like to see what kind of rates are available on ChoiceAir since it is open jaw, and would be willing to pay the extra $ to X for a deal.

The questions:
If I select ChoiceAir when booking do I have to pay the fee even if I don't end up booking air through X
Does ChoiceAir allow for extra days before and after your cruise.

We used choice air for our Trans-Atlantic (just for the return flight) & flew back 2 days after the cruise ended. I'm pretty sure that you don't pay the fees until you book your flight. We did not choose Choice Air at the time of booking, but added it later. The air fares for our cruise were much cheaper through choice air than if we would have booked on our own. Our non stop American flight from Barcelona was $2600.00 each for a one way flight, & Choice Air was $507.00 each!

Choice Air gives you the flexibility to add pre-cruise or post-cruise time to your vacation. You will not be charged until you actually book. Just remember that pricing is different for the different days you fly out or back. Tuesday's and Wednesday's are "usually" the lower priced days to fly.

Depending on the savings it can offset the hotel and other expenses incurred by changing your departure day. It also allows you more time to enjoy yourself. :D

Take care,
Mike

Its been awhile but its time for the dumb question of the day and here we go What is open jaw?:???:

Open Jaw is:

Leaving from one city, flying to another city and then returning from a third city.

i.e. I fly from my home in Minneapolis to Miami. Take a transatlantic cruise and then fly home, to Minneapolis, from London. MSP-MIA LON-MSP.

The name "Open Jaw" comes from the image you would get if you drew the airline portion of your trip on a map. <

Take care,
Mike
