640

Just found this deal, I used it to buy some fare (got confirmed from airline). This will give you 10% Cashback on the fare component for international flights, not on taxes and other charges.

I just got an email for cashback with 5 minutes of booking :)

    Works on both domestic and international? Are fares through trip.com competitive?

    • +3 votes

      Not on domestic, I booked a fare from HKG to SIN which the fare component was about $400 and got an email for $40 cashback.

      Remember taxes and surcharges not counted.

      They're competitive, once I was shopping around recently it came up the lowest and that's when I got to know there's a legit site called trip.com

      I just checked a fare and it's $100 more expensive than the airline direct. I've seen trip.com show up on skyscanner frequently, so I guess it's hit and miss.

        Trip.com (aka China's ctrip) owns Skyscanner

        •  

          For this reason I've stopped using skyscanner, I've found that Google flights is cheaper, at least for se asia

        •  

          Skyscanner is junk. Their price engine is misleading often clicking through to actual site returns higher price and dodge website too. Rather use something like IWTF

  •  

    Great deal. Might use for trip to Singapore.

      Yeh not really when all they do is jack up their fares to cover the cashback. Plenty cheaper sites. Wouldn’t waste my time waiting 3 months for cashback when can book cheaper fares elsewhere

  •  

    If you book a return flight, do you get cashback on both legs?

  •  

    Can’t seem to see anything in the T&C’s but does anyone know if this would include travel not originating in Aus? Ie. I’m looking at a flight from Athens to Dubai and wondering if this would be eligible

      Seems like the OP did Hong Kong to Singapore. Whether cashback is approved or not is another question. I'm also keen to know. Can @tightarse clear this up?

      •  

        Yep exactly. I just don’t want to do it if the cashback isn’t coming when I could do it same price directly with the airline

    Dear all…

    Please do a check for prices before going through CR and after going through CR to make sure there is no bump in prices when Trip.com realises they have to pay CR and the airline to get your business.

      Doesn't the airline pays travel agency commissions?

      • +3 votes

        The commission on flights is generally close to, if not, zero.

        •  

          Then how could some travel agents offer prices lower than those offered by airlines directly? I always thought that they can do this because they share the commission from the airline with customers.

          •  

            @maolin95: I know that some regional specialist travel agents (indian subcontinent, china, etc) get volume incentives - typically aimed at helping them sell packaged tours, but they'll sell unbundled airfares to make their numbers.

            The commission on flights is generally close to, if not, zero.

            Depends on the airline. Some airlines are still paying ~5% commissions.

        •  

          Not sure if you meant the commissions = markups. Each agent has a portal to see the fares from the airlines which the prices they pay them compared to what they sell to you are quite significant.

    I could not see in the T&C. What is the promotion period?

  •  

    You guys traveling to Asia atm? I was thinking of a holiday during Easter, but a bit skeptical with the outbreak.

    •  

      My thinking on that is it's spread quite widely already so you'd take precautions wherever you fly.

  •  

    Do you have to pay for your stay on Christmas Island? Serious question. Trying to figure out how much to budget for my stupidity, in case I decided to take a detour on a random sale somewhere.

  •  

    When is this valid until?

    • +1 vote

      The promotion ends tonight, but from what I see from the T&Cs there is no limit to how far you book in advance (Note: that airlines tend to only allow bookings up to 365 days in advance).

  •  

    Do they price jack? The other day I was using shopback on Qatar website they jacked the price

    •  

      Most definitely. Don’t be fooled. They just jack up their prices 10% to cover the cashback. Compare search with IWTF and you’ll see..
