So I notice alot of seat sales going on right now from the United States to Europe. Of course Canadian fares are ALOT higher (Hundreds of CDN dollars).
Having asked around (travel agent across the street and trying to a real person at an airline, key word: trying) I couldn’t get a straight answer on this.
I’m only a couple of hours from Seattle. Could I, a Canadian citizen, buy a ticket from Seattle to say, London? Or is there some law/rule that since I’m a canadian with a Canadian passport I can’t do this?
It’s worth a few hours drive to save a few hundred bucks (over $400 :eek: ) IMO. Of course I can see from the airlines POV why they wouldn’t want me to do this, and if the airline has a rule against, so be it. But if they don’t specifically exclude me in the Terms and conditions, do they have a legal leg to stand on if they refuse me when I show up in Seattle with my Canadian passport ready to hop on the flight?
On their website it specifically asks for country of residence, so that’s a problem since I’m not an American resident.
After re-reading, it occurs to me that since I’m not a resident, the Terms and conditions does exclude me. Well ain’t that peachy. Could I get around this? Do they actually look into this?
I am aware of the rules re: don’t ask for advice on how to do something illegal. But if it’s "only " an airline rule, I wouldn’t be doing anything illegal. It would be akin to a “Help me pass this drug test” type thread rather than a “where can i score some weed?” thread. You’re not helping me break a law, you’re helping me break a rule!
I digress. Is there a way for me to get the american fare, or am i stuck paying an extra $400 even though Seattle is only an hour further away than Vancouver?
