Travel insurance: Train fare hike makes air travel popular

Friday, 01 December 2006

With the impending rise in rail fares due to hit in January, cheap flights may grow in popularity, according to one aviation chief.

Leisure customers and people from SMEs can often find "cracking fares" and excellent service on board low-costs airlines, said David Hodge who is marketing director at the bmibaby airline.

H explained: "When they suddenly realise that there is a fare of £13.99 one way to Glasgow or Edinburgh from Birmingham, they can see that it's cheaper than the train or a long distance video phone link."

He also claims that flying is "a bit of fun" and bmibaby apparently is "a little bit more informal and that fits the nature of the type of customer who travels with us".

Often cheap airline sell their wares online which means added convenience as you can search for cheap travel insurance on the web simultaneously.

However the aviation industry suffered a set back yesterday when plans were rejected by Uttlesford Council for the expansion of Stansted airport and the building of a second runway.
