GlobalPass launches new online travel agency - Double Dipping opportunities

You know - It doesn't look half bad. The fares seem comparable to travelocity.com on the few searches that I have done. But GlobalPass pays you 4 miles per dollar spent. These miles can be used for the regular KLM / Avianca / Taca / Aeropostal awards or their preferred rate airlines.

I think GlobalPass may be onto a good thing here. I will certainly give GlobalPass an opportunity to get my business.

I do see a downside - $50 charge for paper ticketing outside of the United States. I find it hard to believe it costs this much to send some paper tickets by regular airmail anywhere.

Lets see!

From the website:

You may purchase air travel on almost every airline in the world via an online reservations and ticketing system provided by Click&Book. You may use miles as money when purchasing air travel. You may purchase unrestricted airfares using miles under the SuperAwards™ program, or earn 4 PreferredMiles™ per dollar spent on airfares (excluding taxes and fees) when paying with a credit card. This is GlobalPass' "Earning miles upon-the-sale" feature.

Customers can also "Earn miles upon-the-service" for the flown segments when the airline is a GlobalPass Affiliated Airline, simply present your GlobalPass account number upon check-in.

If you pay with a mileage-earning credit card you will earn additional miles!

When the airline is not an Affiliated Airline and you belong to a participating program with that airline, simply present your card upon check-in and "legally" double-dip!

Any idea which travel engine this site uses? Sabre!! It will not price tickets out of Khartoum, Sudan - So this confirms that it uses a US search engine (Sudan is under US trade embargo and therefore tickets are not priced out of this country).

LatinPass used to send paper tickets via Regular mail which was costles for them.Since they changed name, they send tickets second or next day air.
