If you've got school age children and are planning a holiday you may have noticed that the cost of taking a vacation appears to increase during school holidays. The cost of flying to your holiday destination is a case in point with some airlines being accused of inflating their prices deliberately to coincide with school holidays.Some parents understandably try to get away a little bit before the official break starts as this normally sees them make big savings on their air fares.
Government has proposed that parents will be fined between
£60 and £120 if they take their children out of school in term time - this is
due to come out in September. Instead of the government tackling the
airlines monopoly on pricing policies they choose to get a stealth tax in,
which let's face only those who are from less privileged backgrounds will get
hit with as they are trying to be prudent to save a few quid.
PAGA (Parents Against Greedy Airlines) gives parents an
opportunity to fight back and make their collective views known. We have
already had a great reaction with nearly 900 people joining the group in 2 days
and today PAGA made the front page of a newspaper in Cyprus. Join the fight for fair fares today.
