Continental allowing flyers to lock in fares for a fee

Continental Airlines has introduced FareLock, an option enabling Continental.com customers to hold reservations and lock in ticket prices for 72 hours or seven days with no commitment to purchase a ticket.

The new feature, offered for a fee on certain domestic and international itineraries, gives customers additional flexibility to plan their travel and avoid the risk of price increases or sold-out flights.

Customers may return to Continental.com to complete the transaction at any time between purchasing the lock and its expiration, or they may choose an auto-ticketing feature that tickets at the end of the lock period.

FareLock fees start at $5 for a 72-hour hold and $9 for a seven-day hold, are nonrefundable and vary based on a number of factors such as the itinerary, number of days to departure and the length of the hold.

The carrier will continue to allow customers to make reservation changes and cancellations without a fee within 24 hours of booking. For customers choosing FareLock, the 24-hour flexible booking policy remains in effect upon ticketing.
