Step 1: If you have a flight ticket, check here if you can sell your flight. Over 45 major airlines around the world sell transferable airline 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 sell my holiday. If you have only accommodation to sell, go to sell hotel reservation. You can also list flight vouchers for sale.
Step 2: For transferable plane tickets, we have a standard and a quick (assisted) method. If you want to list any other unwanted reservation, 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 or vacation package - 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 reservations on sale or the unwanted holidays for sale. On the next page, you can filter by city, if needed. You can also browse the airline vouchers for sale. 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 unwanted 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.
SpareFare offers fraud protection for both sides. As an intermediary, we will assist you if you have any questions, issues or concerns when you bid on plane tickets or hotel reservations.
The flight tickets and hotel rooms sold on SpareFare are always cheaper than the ones offered by airlines and travel agents! You decide what discount you want from the current online price when you bid for the travel deal!
We will not pay the seller until you verify that the travel plans have been transferred in your name and the seller cannot change them anymore*. This protects you from fraudulent sellers.
You help sellers get a refund on non-refundable plane tickets they can no longer use while getting a second-hand price on unused flight tickets! It is a win-win situation!
If you buy on our platform, you help reduce the number of empty seats on flights. This improves airline efficiency and it is great news for the environment!
* The travel account has been transferred so that the seller doesn't have access to the booking or we wait until after the end of the reservation.
