When searching for flights that involve children, include them in the number of total passengers.
When you have gone through the process of selecting a flight through FareCompare, you will be directed to the website that is offering that particular flight.
Once there, you will need to enter all the passenger information, including date of birth. This will make the appropriate adjustments to include a child in your travels.
Traveling with Children:
- Required Paperwork: Be sure to have the appropriate identification for all children regardless of age.
- Notify the Airline: You will need to let your airline know you will be traveling with a child.
- Ticket Price: The airfare is about half the price of a regular ticket for smaller children who require their own seat. In general, children who sit on your lap are not charged any fees for travel. This may vary based on airline.
- Airline Policies: Traveling with children policies differ with each airline. You should consult your airline of choice directly for more information.
For more information: More information about traveling with children can be found on the FareCompare Blog.
