Explore Trip Deal to Ecuador

Explore Trip Deal to Ecuador

  1. Anonymous

    I am still new at the mistake fare booking. This morning my friend sent a link for a mistake fare from Miami to Guayaquil, Ecuador that was $104 dollars. The problem is that I am skeptical of buying the tickets after reading numerous awful reviews and after trying to google Atlantis Airlines (the airline the tickets are going through) and literally nothing coming up. I’ve read multiple reviews that stated they accepted the charge to your credit card and then bailed and did not issue refunds. Does anyone have any tips or used them before, this definitely seems too good to be true.

    I am still very new to traveling and my friend told me about mistake fares. She sent me a link for a flight from Miami to Guayaquil, Ecuador that had dates available from Jamuary through March for 109 round trip through the website explore trip. After seeing the reviews for explore trip, I was extremely skeptical because so many of them were negative. A red flag also popped up because it says that the trip would be with Atlantis Airlines and after googling the airline, it did not pop up at all. Has anyone used explore trip before with a positive (or negative so I can avoid the hassle altogether) experience?

    Welcome

    Do you have a link to the booking site?

    Explore trip sounds dodgy, but without know all the details it’s hard to say for sure

    This is the link I initially had that rerouted me to explore trips site. I input Valentine’s weekend of 2017 if that is of any help

    I also see that momondo’s website has their cheapest listed at 279 but when directly going to explore trips website and inputting the dates, I can see it

    Well Dee your Atlantis Airlines is Avior Airlines, an airline in Venezuela. Correct name comes up in momondo and the site your linked to.

    If you wanted to leave the airport during your 22H stop you would need a visa as a US citizen

    Frankly my advice to you would be to forget about this deal unless you have to be in Guayaquil badly.

    If you are just looking for good fare prices in general keep an eye on this website
