If you’re asking yourself “Can I sell my non-refundable airline tickets?” You are not alone! Lots of people can’t use their non-refundable planes and aren’t sure what to do with them. Many people do not know there is something to do!
How to sell plane tickets
Your aircraft may be transferred to someone else if your airline allows you to change the name associated with the aircraft. There is always a fee to change the name and these are different. Most low-cost airlines change their names as part of their official policy, and you can do this easily from your airline account. You can check if your airline allows them to change their name by calling their website or customer service. Some regular airlines, which do not allow name change as an official policy, make exceptions for their customers – I have seen several occasions where airlines deviate from their general terms to please clients for a fee and bring them out of pocket. So it is worthwhile to always call your airline’s customer service and try to persuade them to allow you to change your name for a fee.
If you are selling a return flight, you usually need to sell the two legs of the ride together. Because two flights are under one booking and the airlines usually allow you to change the name of the entire booking, not part of it.
You can change your flight dates and destinations
It is also useful to know that many airlines allow you to change your flight dates and departure and arrival destinations. Even if you can’t fly at all but you find a buyer who can travel but needs different dates, you can also change the dates of your flights. Airlines usually charge a separate fee for this
Sometimes you have to pay the rent difference
If you are changing the name of the flight or if you are changing the date and / or destinations, some airlines have asked you to differentiate between the price paid when booking a flight and the current live price of the flight. If you know you will change both the flight and the name, change these together to avoid paying more fees.
