Still Deciding? Hold that Fare!

Q. How do you put an airfare sale on “hold” and how long can you hold it for, or is this option only available to travel agents?

A. Thanks to new D.O.T. regulations, you can put any air reservation on hold for 24 hours without paying for it. United also offers something called “fare lock” which allows you to put an airfare on hold for longer periods, on select flights, for a fee.
