Can accumulate airline miles while traveling on a group airfare?
I see lower airfare as individual tickets than the group airfare. Why?
In most cases, booking with Traveland, an individual ticket may be equal or slightly lower than the group airfare
Airline fares are dynamic and calculated based upon inventory of available seats at time of booking. Therefore, to guarantee the airfare, you must pay and ticket instantly.
Group airfare may be higher as they are taking the majority of the lower airfares and resulting in a higher risk for the airlines. A group fare can be secured with a minimal deposit only.
