Why book with us rather than an agent or online
Sites such as Skyscanner or Google Flights can be useful for getting an idea of flight times, but they are not always reliable. If a flight is delayed or cancelled, they will not notify you of these changes and it will be up to you to check before you fly. Any issues you may have, either with seat selection, refunds or anything else, will be made smoother when you can speak to our experts over the phone.
It can be very difficult to get hold of online booking agents over the phone and if there are any last minute problems, being able to contact Travel The Unknown to assist may prevent you from having to book new flights for your holiday.
