The battle among air carriers just became more cut-throat with the low-cost carrier AirAsia introducing all-inclusive tickets for as low as Rs. 999! Their 7 Days Of Mad Deals promotion actually allows you to book tickets for extraordinarily low prices, but there are a couple of catches involved that we'll talk about below.
What's The Catch?
Although there are many a destination classified under this offer but it's better to know the couple of terms of conditions involved beforehand. The 7 Days of Mad Deals offer is applicable between August 21, 2017, and 27, 2017, and the flyers can only book tickets for the travel dates between February 26, 2018, and August 28, 2018. If you wish to book, you need to visit AirAsia's website or their Mobile App.
Their website also mentions that the offer holds true only for advanced booking and that the "fares aren't available during embargo period".
What else do I need to know?
Although their website shows that there over 100 destinations classified under the offer, but the seats are supposedly limited and the offer is "valid for new purchases only".
Some of the commonly visited destinations are: Bengaluru, Kolkata, Bagdogra, Kochi, Goa, Kuala Lumpur, Bali, Phuket, Krabi, Manila, Langkawi, Ho Chi Minh, Jakarta, Perth, Singapore, amongst others.
Although obviously Rs. 999 is only a starting price between Kolkata and Bagdogra, but still the prices between several other destinations are amazingly cheap. Eg: Rs. 1,099 between Goa and Bengaluru!
Why this outstanding offer?
As mentioned in the beginning of this article itself, there is a brutal competition amongst the low-cost air carriers in India due to the huge consumer population. Backpackers & budget travellers are increasing by the day and they won't even consider taking a flight unless it's competing with the train prices. This gives rise to outrageous offers every now & then. If you are still reading this piece, I pity you because the offer tickets must have been getting sold every second. So, go check them out instead of being here.
If you do manage to book your tickets, do share your experience on Tripoto to enlighten 25 million fellow wanderers in this community of such offers.
