Step 1: If you have a flight ticket, check here if you can sell your flight. 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. We have an extensive list of airline name change fees & policies. If your airline is not in our list, call their customer service line to check if they will make an exception for you. If you have both unwanted flights and a hotel reservation, go to list and sell your holiday. If you have only accommodation to sell, list your hotel reservation here.
Step 2: For plane tickets we have a standard and a quick (assisted) method. If you want to list anything else, we only have a standard option. Wait for an interested buyer to bid for your air tickets, hotel room or vacation. There is no set asking price for your offer: buyers can place any bid that gives you some refund on the airfare, hotel room & holiday - you may accept or reject their bid. Follow the link in the email we will send 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, hotel reservation or holiday package in the name of the buyer. Please note sellers pay for any transfer fees.
Step 5: We transfer the money to you. If you have access to make further changes to the travel, we wait until after the end of the reservation before we send you the funds.
Step 1: Look for plane tickets for sale in the search box above. You may also check the hotel rooms on sale or the unwanted holidays. On the next page you can filter by city if needed. If there are no suitable results, you can save your search as an email alert – you will get an email if travel matching your criteria is listed on SpareFare.
Step 2: Bid for airline tickets or hotel reservations on sale. The first bid is non-binding – you can use it to ask the seller questions about the booking.
Step 3: Wait for the seller to accept your bid on his spare tickets or travel plans.
Step 4: Follow the link in the email we will send you. Confirm your bid (this is when you commit to buy the deal) and send SpareFare the money. As part of our buyers' protection policy, we will not transfer the money to the seller before the travel date if they still have access to make further changes to the booking.
Step 5: The seller transfers the plane ticket or hotel reservation in your name and we send you the booking reference to access the booking.
