Air Express have today launched a deposit system for their customers that want to book online with the flexibility usually only reserved for direct customer bookings.
With the austerity that the country is currently experiencing, Air Express made the decision to offer their on line customers the ability to confirm their flights, hotels and holidays with payment of just a deposit.
Jon Matthews, the online business manager at Air Express, said “Deposits aren’t something new, but very few companies offer this facility to online users. We are looking to expand our already vast customer base, and felt that offering the ability to book with just a deposit would introduce us to a much greater market. We have already discounted our pricing online and felt that adding a deposit system would help our customers afford the holiday they’ve always dreamed of.”
