Latam Colombia cheaper than Latam UK

Hello. I am planning to book 3 domestic flights with Latam in Colombia. When i use google flights i get 2 results. Latam colombia website for about 70 or Latam uk website 120. Is it safe to book via the Colombia website? Any experience? I have heard some stories that if you are not a Colombian citizen or resident you have to pay a fine?

There were residential fares for flights within Peru. I don't recall resident fares ever being available in Colombia

You may have some problems paying with a foreign credit card. YMMV

Yes, you can safely book domestic flights @ Columbian webpage. I did that (and travelled) in July without any issues for Avianca flights. Much cheaper than to buy on the international webpage.

If you can't get the bookings to be completed with LATAM you can always book with Avianca instead as there will be no cc issues there.

I face with a similar situation except my flights are within Chile. Google flights show BIG disparity in fares (much cheaper) than US LATAM web site. But unfortunately I couldn't find the English page to book.
Any advice is appreciated.

If you want to book with Chile's prices you need to use the site in spanish. You can try to book using Google Chrome and its automatic translating feature

Why is that? Was it because they required CC with PIN?

Not in Colombia as far as I know, but there is anecdotal evidence of people in this forum having problem with payments with foreign credit cards.

Did you have any luck?
