Does WestJet play the same game with their 15% promos?

I had a 40% off coupon good for four tickets that worked out well. Actually saved $400 on flights and went direct instead of a layover.

Now they haven’t gotten to screw me again yet but the coupon was actually valuable.

I am sure there are some situations where it works out. I just haven't found anything where the promo code was anybody because of how the carrier surcharge / base fare work. It's like the airlines can do whatever they want based on some pedantics.



"Ah, we're losing too much money on promo codes and air mile problems, lets make the base fare $1, and make up a new charge".

Flying to Mexico tomorrow morning. List of priorities:

1. The flight departs
2. It departs somewhat close to the departure time
3. No drunk, stupid people sitting next to me or near me.

On my flight back from Caifornia in November, a lady put a huge blanket over her head for the entire flight, which made her look like a red ghost, or red lampshade. Not bad, just strange.

It's probably because people are annoying.

4. Not being ripped off by cheating customs agents.

Anyone have a suggestion on what type of car to rent in Scotland for 2 adults and 2 golf bags and other luggage?

Also any suggestions on which site to book through? Pickup and drop off will be in Glasgow.

I got an incredible deal through https://www.autoeurope.ca. It was ~$450 for ~3 weeks.

I will say it did not go 100% smoothly, but that is becuase Europcar was staffed by morons, and our 3 hour delay mucked stuff up. Be prepared for a long wait at Glasgow, no matter who you rent from. All the companies had lots of customers waiting for eternity. If you go Europcar there is a non-obvious screen to enter your info which gets you a place in line. If you can pre-register ahead of time, I highly recommend doing that, but their site didn't work for us.

If you want to use your credit card insurance, make sure you have a print out, or it saved on your phone. The moron would not let me decline it until he saw proof I had coverage, which meant running back to the main terminal to get wifi and downloading it.

Maybe look at a Skoda wagon for a rental. We had a Fusion but I'm not sure you could get 2 golf bags in.

Thanks for the info. Were flying in late on friday night so was going to just crash in a hotel for a bit than grab the car in the morning. Maybe it won't be as busy then.

Update: things couldn't have gone smoother. Left at 6am and was checked into the resort by noon.

I always find mexico flights to be pain free. But I book the early flights - you seem to miss out on hooligans generally.

Those flights to Japan are amazing, but what are accommodations going to be lie during the summer around the Olympics? Should it matter?

Well, there might not be any Olympics...

Or alternatively if there is, if you stay somewhere other than Tokyo you'd be fine.
