Airlines used to give discounts to passengers who are traveling to a relative’s funeral but unfortunately those days are just about gone. Today, only Delta Airlines and Alaska Airlines still offer bereavement fares. These tickets have a very small discount off the ordinary fare and while you are able to find one, these tickets are no longer cheap.
Below are some tips when looking for a bereavement fare or at least a cheaper ticket.
- Choose an airline that is most flexible in terms of changing your ticket.
- Be as flexible as possible when it comes to your travel date and alternative airports.
- Try to bundle your airfare with a hotel room as they are lot cheaper.
