Skyscanner>>>> Mytrip.com >>>> Fare Rules

A person I know saved hard to arrange a multi-stop trip to Asia and was advised to use Skyscanner to get the best vfm on flights.
She booked for what was considered a reasonable sum given the length and number of journeys in the package.

When the booking was confirmed by the cheapest company Mytrip.com it had a huge set of fare rules attached.
Panic ensued because the rules seem to be saying, in effect no seat or price is guaranteed, is this REALLY the case? Anyone with any experience of these kinds of thing or this company who can advise would be most welcome.


The top of the list of rules goes:

RULE APPLICATION AND OTHER CONDITIONS

Nothing in the text you supplied seems worrying. Some of these companies only reserve your flight first and confirm within a day. Always a bit worrying but I've never had a problem with it.
