This topic has been covered before but in case anyone didn't see it or any newbies are not aware then i'm posting my experience of what happened when i tried to book one way flights from Malaga to Newcastle yesterday.

I couldn't get tickets with the same airline because my return date and especially the time of return was not suitable with the schedule of the other airlines, so it was a matter of having to do two separate bookings which i didn't mind. The day before yesterday i loaded the Jet 2 website using google to view flight dates and price etc, yesterday i went back to make a booking and discovered the price had increased by 25 euros per seat and because i wanted to book 2 seats that was now an extra 50 euros.. So i loaded internet explorer and hey presto the flight price was the same as the day before. I had heard that they track people but i am now convinced they certainly do.I don't think i have saved 50 euros by checking with internet explorer, all i have done is avoid the inflated increase but there will be many who fall foul of it.

Can work both ways though, leave the cookies and look at a rival airline or go back later. I was booking BA to Miami after checking Virgin. Slept on it and booked BA the next day for £120 less for two. Not sure how it works, could be luck...or not.

Yes, Pamela, and Easyjet also hoiks the flight price up if you go back using the same browser in the same session. Also (apols, I mentioned this on another thread but relevant here), Jet2 have a useful 25% discount if booking seat, case and meal but apply it to the whole party. My wife wants the whole package, I just want to sit down. So I had two tabs running concurrently to just limit my booking to flight+seat but the website was alert to it and forced the whole package on both of us. Problem solved: book Mrs Bass on Chrome whilst booking mine on Opera - seats together, 25% off for her, just the basics for me.
