What about minors traveling alone?
Prior to booking a ticket for an unaccompanied minor, please contact the airline
to confirm their specific policies. Most carriers allow minors to travel alone but
have special restrictions. Each airline has its own age guidelines. Most require
unaccompanied minor services for children ages 5-14, some even require it up to
age 17. Additional fees for these services are charged and are payable upon check-in.
They vary between $20 - $60 each way. Most airlines have rules not allowing the
unaccompanied minor to travel on any "last flight of the day" connections to prevent
the child from being stranded in an airport.
