Step 1: Over 40 major airlines around the world sell transferable plane tickets. Their travel policies allow name changes for a fee; thus, you can resell your non-refundable flight ticket. Check if you can sell your flight here. If your airline is not listed there, call their customer service line to check if they will make an exception for you. We have an extensive list of airline name change fees & policies.
Step 2: Post your plane ticket using the standard or quick (assisted) method. Wait for an interested buyer to bid for your air tickets. There is no set asking price for your spare tickets: buyers can place any bid that gives you some refund on the airfare - you may accept or reject them. Follow the link in the email we will have sent you and accept the bid if you are happy with it.
Step 3: The buyer confirms his bid and sends SpareFare the money.
Step 4: You transfer the airline ticket in the name of the buyer.
Step 5: We transfer the money to you. If you have access to make further changes to the reservation, we wait until after the flight's take-off date.

Step 5: The seller transfers the plane ticket in your name and we send you the booking reference to access the reservation.
