I need to cancel a flight, can I get a refund?

Deals

If you need to cancel a flight, you may be able to get a refund. The options vary depending on the airline.

Below I've gathered some information from the different airlines and their policies.

Quite often, you need to have bought a 'flexible' ticket for a slightly higher price.

  • Aer Lingus - On selected tickets, minimum £20 per ticket
  • Bmi - On selected tickets, minimum £20 per ticket
  • British Airways - On selected tickets, a charge £15 per ticket. Up to 100% of the ticket fare may be charged
  • easyJet - Within 24 hours will refund all except a £25 admin fee. After 24 hours the booking is non-refundable with the exception of APD which is refunded without additional charge
  • Flybe - On selected tickets, minimum £25 up to 100% of the cost per ticket
  • Jet2 - No refunds on Jet2. £40 admin fee for claiming back APD
  • Monarch - No refunds on Monarch. £25 admin fee for claiming back APD
  • Ryanair - No refunds on Ryanair. £20 admin fee for claiming back APD
  • Thomas Cook - No refunds on Thomas Cook
  • Thomson - No refunds on Thomson.
  • Virgin Atlantic - On selected tickets, minimum £30 up to 100% of the cost per ticket

usually no... specially if its last minute thing,

didn't think any of the flight companies would allow you to try to claim certain percent.

maybe that's because I pay for cheap flights so they all say no refunds maybe it's different for the more

very expensive tickets?

This is why it's important to buy travel insurance at the time of booking, you never know what circumstances could come up that may alter your plans.

Travel Insurance will never cover things if the other party decides not to go

I think some case they should do refund...sometimes when people know 1-2 weeks before the day they suppose to travel and they want to cancel it. The company still can sell the same ticket to someone else.

Mostly people can not go with the booked flight, because of some serious reasons.

When you make a booking always read the Booking terms and conditions first. That is what you are agreeing to. Once you make an agreement you are expected to keep to it. If you don’t you will probably be sued. If you fail to pay up

and get a CCJ that can affect your credit record for six years - that’ll then screw your chances of getting a car loan, mortgage, credit card, or positive tenancy credit reference check In the future.

Breaching an agreement, and/or failing to pay a debt, is not something to be done lightly. It can have very serious consequences.
