    Have a pen and paper ready
    Ask if there are promotional offers, discount packages and other information such as length of travel or whether it is a non-stop flight. You should also ask if the flight fare will cover the meal and if there are surcharges when you book by phone. Ask if accommodation is part of a travel package. Determine if you are getting a ticket-less booking. You should get an e-ticket number if it is.
