Have you ever had to skip a flight because you couldn’t find parking or you forgot some luggage or you even experienced an emergency? If so, the team at Parking Deals Australia have compiled a short list of ways to get your money refunded!
Check if Your Ticket is Refundable
Ask the airline if the ticket is refundable or even flexible as a precaution before purchase. Before purchasing, read the airline’s terms and conditions regarding flight cancellations. Most of the time tickets that are on sale or through a rewards system are non-refundable, although you can always check with your airline.
Get In Touch With Your Travel Agent
If you booked with a travel agent, then make sure to get in contact with them if you know you cannot make it to your flight. They often have strict rules about refunds and flight changes, so make sure to give them a call ASAP.
Contact Your Insurance Agency
Although the chance of getting a plane ticket refunded is slim, there are sometimes exceptions to the rule. Read the terms and conditions or give them a call to clear it up, and ask specifically about “trip interruptions”. It all boils down to the airline or the insurance company’s discretion, but assessing your situation is a part of their job, so you just might be in for a spot of luck.
