How To Get Help from Airlines When You Need It

Though online booking has made it quicker and easier than ever to purchase travel, it does remove some of the personal touch of working with an expert agent over the phone. Navigating through pages on airline or travel agency websites to find support and contact information can be confusing.

While does not complete any bookings directly, it is our mission to make purchasing airfare as user-friendly as possible, so here’s some information on how to get in touch with airlines and agencies directly when seeking assistance. is a Travel Search Engine is a search engine, like Google or Yahoo, that helps users find the best fares. Once you find your desired flight, links you directly to an airline, like United, or an online travel agency website, like Expedia, where you can book your trip.

Once travel is booked via one of our partners, can no longer assist users in changing their itinerary or offer any additional support. We are happy to answer any questions, but your best bet is to work with the provider directly. As I said earlier, it’s not always easy, so here are a few ways to get your questions answered quickly.

Call or Email Travel Providers

This method is pretty obvious, but often these phone numbers and links can be buried away deep within websites, making them difficult to find. We took all the work out of that frustrating process by putting together a full list below. The table includes all airlines and travel agency websites that are displayed in search results.
