I had previously bought airfare flying domestically in the USA on Frontier airlines, directly from Frontier. Unfortunately, my reason to travel was postponed, so I also have to postpone my travel.
The value of my currently purchased flight (minus $99) will not be refunded to me and can only be applied to another Frontier ticket within 90 days of me cancelling my flight.
I went onto Google Flights to find the best flights for my postponed travel dates, which are still through Frontier, and was happy to see low prices listed:
However, when I click on the link to be taken to book directly on the Frontier website, I see this
A round-trip ticket that Google lists for $134 is over $500 on the Frontier website. I realize this is not an uncommon occurrence. I checked that the other options Google lists (Orbitz, Priceline, etc.) are actually offering the tickets at those prices. However, in order for me to apply the value of my currently purchased airfare (total value ~$200) I have to purchase the airfare directly from Frontier AFAIK.
- Is there any way I could apply the value of my current tickets to airfare purchased through a third-party site (not directly from Frontier)?
- Is there any way I can purchase airfare directly from Frontier for something much closer to the price that it's listed on Google?
Edit: I am flying between Trenton NJ (TTN) and Orlando FL (MCO).
Second edit: Just checked today and now Frontier and Google Flights are agreeing, and the plane ticket is even cheaper than the Google Flights quote yesterday.
