Voice of Travelers to El Salvador
Best Ticket Deal
Last summer, while looking through a newspaper, I saw an advert in which low-price tickets to exotic destinations were offered, and without thinking twice I called Alitalia and immediatelly booked my tickets. We had a little trouble getting seats, since only two tickets were available and we were four people – but we somehow managed to get two more tickets at the last minute. It was a long flight but it was worth it. We reached our hotel, where the staff were very friendly and introduced us to all the events going on at the time. They even helped us get tickets to a local concert. An amazing experience with Alitalia and I would always book my tickets with this airline.
Living in Sweden means freezing in the cold, so my friends and I were looking for a bit of fun and warmth and decided to try something new. We bought tickets to visit El Salvador – and it was the best decision we ever made. We booked our tickets at United Airlines and we were ready to go. We experienced amazing beaches, breathtaking landscapes, and wonderful and friendly people. It's guaranteed that – no matter if you're 7 or 77 – El Salvador is the place where you will find the fun you are looking for. Surfing, swimming, and unforgettable waterfalls are not even half of everything El Salvador has to offer. In the end we had a little trouble with our return tickets, since one of our friends lost his. But we called United Airlines and managed to get a new ticket in no time.
