Did that make sense? :lol:

At what age does a child become an adult for air fare purposes?

Helping Steve and Lisa with their number crunching and Ellie will be 12 next August. :unsure:

It's 12 Dawn. If Ellie turns 12 while you are they,you have to phone Virgin and they may increase the price slightly.

I'm pretty sure children ages 12 and over pay full adult fare.

to be honest it doesn't make that much difference with most airlines

Only VH give teen prices one one else has them but they are normally dearer than our IT fares anyway.

Children must be 11 on the return journey if the turn 12 before the return then they are classed as adults.
