Know The Value of Unused Flight Tickets

Beginning the week of Aug 26th, 2002, most airlines have applied new rules for determining the worth of unused non-refundable tickets.


    • For most carriers, the face value of a unused non-refundable ticket can be applied towards the acquisition of a brand spanking new ticket on the same airline for up to year as long as the change is made on or before the departure time of the first ticketed flight.
    • Unused partial non-refundable tickets have no value for future purchases or exchange one time the flight dates have past.
    • To help you choose the cost to cancel your airline ticket, you can use our new cancellation calculator. The calculator will display the amount of refund you would get in the event you cancel the trip or the amount of credit you can use towards future travel if your ticket was issued on a non-refundable fare...........
    • Display the trip you need to review by entering the Trip ID & e-mail address, used when your reservation was made, on the Trip Lookup page.
    • Click Retrieve Booking
    • On the Trip Details page scroll down to the Change or Cancellation Owner section
    • Click on the “Online Calculator” link
    • The calculator will display the amount of refund you would get in the event you cancel the trip or the amount of credit you can use towards future travel if your ticket was issued on a non-refundable fare.
      • If your ticket can be used as a credit:
        1. Keep your (paper) ticket. (In the event you lose your paper ticket the airline will charge you a lost ticket fee of up to $100 in addition to the $130 penalty fee and any additional fare.)
        2. In the event you have an e-ticket, keep a record of your Trip ID or the ticket number until you are prepared to book your next trip (most ticket credit value is only lovely for one year from the original date of issue). You will find your ticket number on your credit card statement.
