Ever had a situation where you had a very important event to attend and the airline cancelled its flight and left you in lurch looking to rebook? Well its happened to all of us and no matter how hard we try its very tough to avoid it. There is hope now that several new start-ups are trying solve this problem by using latest algorithms, Freebird is one the latest entrants in the field.
For $19 to $34 which are Freebird’s winter promotion rates, guarantees you to rebook a ticket in case a flight is cancelled or delayed more than four hours or a connection is missed due to an airline’s delay. The product which is very much works like an insurance policy gets you sorted out in case of flights being missed out or delayed. Think of this as a car insurance whereby you buy an insurance and pay the premium but hope that there is no theft but should it happen the insurance is definitely a life saviour. The product currently only available in the United States and covers any airline flying in or out of there.
