I purchased JetBlue airfare through Kayak’s Kiwi.com. Will my checked baggage fees be the same as if I booked directly with the airline?
But there are other factors to consider when booking through an Online Travel Agency (OTA) like Orbitz, Expedia, or Kiwi.com.
For example, depending on the airline, you might earn fewer miles on your flight if you don’t book directly. Or you could accidentally book a “no-frills” Basic Economy fare without realizing.
I’ll explain what you should know before booking airfare through an online travel agency.
