Airfare increases? Continental removes worries with FareLock
Continental gives travelers the option of locking in airfares for 72 hours or seven days for a fee.
Bing Travel may predict whether an airfare will rise or fall, but Continental took some of the worry out by giving travelers the option of locking in airfares for 72 hours or seven days for a fee.
Continental calls the new feature FareLock, and for fees starting at $5 for a 72-hour hold and $9 for a week-long hold, it gives consumers the ability to lock in the airfare without any obligation to purchase the flight.
