"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YYZ." - Chris Myden

There's a reason I didn't post the $250 CAD roundtrip FareStore 'price error' fares

This is a different type of price error (than, say, the $178 roundtrip fares to Rome) where I don't believe in this case there's a chance of the tickets actually being issued. It's something I consider carefully, with the number of people it can potentially disappoint. And FareStore seems like the type of online travel agency where there could be a lot of headaches with refunds. But best of luck to those that give it a shot!

If you are trying it, you can actually find that fares are showing up for under $50 roundtrip on FareStore on certain routes/dates. But FareStore is the only one in the world showing these, and they are a terrible, small, online travel agency where the actual airline tickets are issued only *after* being reviewed/processed by a human somewhere offshore (the booking made through FareStore means nothing, and neither does the confirmation code from FareStore). Most likely when they go to actually issue the ticket it will fail, and it will be cancelled. That's my best guess anyways, but again, best of luck, you just never know with error fares.

    It's hard to resist! Stranger things have happened with error fares. Although usually with small-time OTAs like this, when they go to actually issue the ticket that's when things fall apart. Fingers crossed for you.

    Thanks AMG! Glad you had a good time. It's great to hear from people already returning from Rome. It feels like that was just last week everyone was booking!

    There's two different components. The first component is the booking reference and doesn't mean anything. The second component is the actual e-ticket number. Getting an actual e-ticket number issued is the key.

    It's possible to be issued a code for the booking reference and be able to see your flight on the airline's website, but not have an actual e-ticket issued yet.

    You can try the Check My Trip app to see if you have actually been issued an e-ticket number (it should be 13 digits/numbers, no letters). At this point it doesn't appear e-tickets have been issued.

    Due to a technical error in our software on May 12th 2022 from 8PM EST till May 13th 2022 9AM EST, the fare displayed in CAD for Canadian departures was incorrect, we are notifying you that the booking with confirmation #3R6N6G has been canceled. We do not hold any reservation at this time.

    No payment has been charged to your credit card.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    At least it doesn't sound like there will be a painful refund process.
