Voice of Travelers to Central African Republic

Great time transiting in Central African Republic

My onward ticket from Cairo to Congo allowed me to stay in the Central African Republic for three full days. I purchased the ticket through Egypt Air. My ticket was rebooked once because the original flight was canceled. This ticket was expensive, and the cheaper option would have been a direct ticket. However, I have always wanted to visit the Central African Republic, so I decided to buy the more expensive ticket. Flying with Egypt Air was a nice experience, and the ticket included food and drinks aboard. Obviously, I didn't see all of the Central African Republic in only two days. I had time to visit only the Central African Republic's capital Bangui and its monuments. I fell in love with the Central African Republic. Next time, I plan to buy a direct ticket and stay in the Central African Republic for longer.

Cheap ticket to Central African Republic with great troubles

I went to the Central African Republic for a conference. I found a deal including a return ticket with a hotel stay and transportation. Not knowing much about the Central African Republic, I preferred the package over a ticket. However, a problem arose when the flight with Air Algerie from Alger was not confirmed and the airline wanted to rebook my ticket for a later date. I thought the other services of the package could be rebooked as well, but this was not the case. I finally ended up paying once again for a hotel in the Central African Republic, as well as transport. I didn't get any money back from the agency. The stay in the Central African Republic was pleasant, however.
