Sometimes traveling by plane is not easy as a-b-c. For those who are already get used to that kind of moving, you just need to grab your luggage and go! But to serve anyone that still has doubts or questions about flying with a plane, we provide you some common useful tips below.

1. Where to buy tickets?

Nowadays the process of booking and buying air ticket online is very simple. Travelers can get a regular ticket either from a travel agent or directly from the airline website. However, the assistance after purchasing tickets (especially with airlines in other countries) is very limited and slow, that why the booking agent like BestPrice Vietnam is one of the best options for travelers with quick support services available 24/7.

2. How do I receive purchased tickets?

Flight tickets purchased on bestpricetravel.com will be an issue as an e-ticket and sent to your email which was used for the submitting process, you do not need to come to airlines office of any travel agents to collect the tickets. The next step is printing and bringing your online ticket to the airport to check-in.

3. What time should I arrive at the airport?

We are not able to suggest timing for you to arrive at the airport, as the time required to check-in and board your flight will depend on the airport and the flight.  It is recommended to arrive at the airport before the departure time about one hour and a half for domestic flights. Depending on the operation of each airport, the boarding gate might be closed 45 minutes before the scheduled time of departure. Please consult the table below for the recommended minimum check-in times:

4. What identification must I have in order to travel?

You will be required a passport on all flights as long as it is within 06 months of the expiry date. Passengers who hold Vietnamese passports can also use ID cards or driving leisurely to travel.

On the other hand, all international passengers must have a valid passport.  If you are staying in an international territory for an extended period, you will also be required a Visa.



5. What if I want to change/reschedule or cancel my flight?

In that situation, be sure to contact us at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure date. What happens next depends on the type of ticket you have purchased and the ticket's status. A surcharge/permit fee might be required.

How do I know if the flight has changed?

Any notification about your flights will be updated to your email and/or phone number. To recheck your flight details, we also recommend that you visit the airline's website or contact us within 24 hours prior to departure.
