How do I buy an airplane ticket for a minor online?

Q. 16 year old. I need answers ASAP, because I'm leaving by car tonight and would like to have a sure way to return.

A. You have to call the airline
Airlines consider "minors" to be under the age of 12. With some airlines minor fare is 75% of adult fare and some airlines charge 100% adult fare. It varies completely by airline policy.


You have to buy an adult ticket which is a little more expensive, but they will never check for proof of age at the airport or on the plane. They only ask for ID and Passport when he checks in, to varify that he is who he claims to be and that he can legally leave the country.

Can I purchase the ticket online?
Yes, OnePass members may book a ticket for an Unaccompanied Minor online. Please see our Unaccompanied Minor policy for details.http://www.continental.com/web/en-us/content/help/flightsearch.aspx

Northwest Airlines

Your child will be expected to handle boarding, deplaning, and transfers to connecting gates on their own. Enrollment in Northwest Unaccompanied Minor program is mandatory for children ages 5 to 14. If you prefer your teenager, age 15 to 17, travel without supervision, please advise the reservation, ticket or travel agent at time of reservation and it will be noted in the reservation.

Remind your teenager never to leave the airport for any reason until they have reached their destination city. He or she should never seek help from or leave the airport with strangers.
Provide your teenager with instructions, phone contacts, and a small amount of money in the unlikely event their flight is missed, delayed, canceled or rerouted.
Most hotels will not accept young people who are not accompanied by an adult.
Remind your teenager that they can seek the assistance of any uniformed Northwest employee if they have questions, concerns or need reassurance.

What is the difference between an oyster card and travel card?
Q. The website says that an oyster card is generally a cheaper way to travel, but I don't understand, does using an oyster card give you a discount on prices? And what is up with the maximum journey times allowed? How long does a 'long' trip take, because getting charged extra would be a waste of money. What is the maximum price cap all about and being charged for peak hours and off peak cap if your journey is less than the peak hours? I will be living there for about 3 months, studying abroad.

A. This is oyster card http://www.tfl.gov.uk/resources/corporate/media/pressimages/rez-high/high_oyster_card_held.jpg

and these are travel cards http://gallery.hd.org/_exhibits/travel/_more2001/_more01/train-tickets-one-day-Travelcard-mainline-and-London-Underground-and-bus-orange-and-yellow-green-pink-white-1-DHD.jpg

The Oyster card is a form of electronic ticketing used on public transport services within the Greater London area of the United Kingdom. It is promoted by Transport for London and is valid on a number of different travel systems across London including London Underground, buses, the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), London Overground, trams, some river boat services and most National Rail services within the London Fare Zones.
A standard Oyster card is a blue credit-card-sized stored value card which can hold a variety of single tickets, period tickets and travel permits which must be added to the card prior to travel. It is also a contactless smartcard which passengers must touch onto electronic reader when entering and leaving the transport system in order to validate it or deduct funds. The cards may be "recharged" in person from numerous sales points, by recurring payment authority or by online purchase. The card is designed to reduce the number of transactions at ticket offices and the number of single paper tickets sold on the London transport network. Usage is encouraged by offering substantially cheaper fares on Oyster than payment with cash.[1]
The card was first issued to the public in July 2003 with a limited range of features and there continues to be a phased introduction of further functions. By March 2007 over 10 million Oyster cards had been issued,[2] and more than 80% of all journeys on services run by Transport for London used the Oyster card.[3]

The Travelcard is an inter-modal travel ticket for unlimited use on the London Underground, London Overground, Docklands Light Railway, Tramlink, London Buses and National Rail services in the Greater London area.[1] Travelcards can be purchased for a period of time varying from one day to a year, from Transport for London, National Rail and their agents. Depending on where it is purchased, and the length of validity, a Travelcard is either printed on a paper ticket with a magnetic stripe or encoded onto a reusable contactless electronic smart card, known as an Oyster card. The cost of a Travelcard is determined by the area it covers and, for this purpose, London is divided into a number of fare zones. The Travelcard season ticket for unlimited travel on London Buses and the London Underground was launched on 22 May 1983 by London Transport.[2][3] One Day Travelcards and validity on other transport modes were added from 1984 onwards. The introduction of the Travelcard caused an increase in patronage and reduced the number of tickets that needed to be purchased by passengers.
