carolina He is 28 years old, he is from Mendoza and he works as a lawyer and on Monday morning he learned of an unprecedented situation: The site of the Madrid travel agency eDreams offered tickets to the United States, Europe and other destinations at ridiculous prices. And he could see it for himself when he secured two tickets to Dublin in April 2023 for just $66 return.
This is a young woman who, like other people, became aware on Monday of the situation unfolding in relation to the prices offered by this foreign platform and which caused a lot of excitement on social networks.
The young woman was working in a law firm when she decided, with her colleague Leonardo, to try to acquire one of these tickets. And finally he managed to pay with his credit card for the two tickets to the capital of Ireland. The flights are from the Canadian company Air Canada and have two stopovers. As confirmed at Infobae Carolina (she preferred not to mention her last name), the site accepted payment with a Visa card and she received an email where the platform told her that the reservation would be confirmed within 24 hours.
“The ticket is first class and even allowed me to choose the seats“, entrusted the young woman to this media. He also explained that this includes checked baggage.
“I was planning to travel to Europe in April with my colleagues. Out of four of us we managed to get two of our tickets since the other two when they tried to pay were refused payment.“, big.
Despite the ridiculous price she obtained, the young woman does not seem optimistic about the realization of the trip: “I’m sure they will cancel it…”, she confided to Infobae.
The doubts of Carolina (@caaro2706) and other Twitter users who claim to have purchased tickets under similar conditions lie in seeing whether the company will comply with what is displayed on its website, even when the amount indicates that it is an error, because no offer can lead to paying these ridiculous prices. So far, no comment has been made by the company.
It should be recalled that on Monday morning a great stir was generated on social networks after Twitter users reported an error on the website of the Madrid travel agency eDreams, which made it possible to buy plane tickets to the United States, Europe and other destinations at ridiculous prices, less than 100 pesos.
“There is an error with the eDreams website and tickets for Europe or the United States were sold for 4 or 10 pesos,” journalist Mauro Albornoz (@mau_albornoz) wrote in his account, continuing : “The page is down and there is still no statement on what will happen to tickets purchased at 4 pesos”. User @sofi_villagrasa said: “I bought 2 return tickets to Madrid for 70 pesos. I received confirmation from Iberia and entered the airline’s page and it seems to be confirmed as well. Am I excited or not yet?
As he was able to confirm Infobaethe eDreams site was unavailable for several hours and then returned to normal operation, so it’s possible the travel company noticed the error that was costing them money and temporarily shut down the site to fix it.
Upon entering the site, tickets with prices below 100 pesos are no longer seen, but the fares that can be chosen are within what is considered “normal”.
