Whether you end up with an Air Canada voucher from COVID, a flight cancellation, or other circumstances, you might be wondering if you can sell it to get money back?

You’ll need the 15 digit voucher number that starts with 144, as well as the 4 digit pin associated with the voucher. You can find these details in the separate emails you received from Air Canada containing your voucher confirmation. (One email will contain the voucher number and another email will contain the pin)

And that’s it! You will make approximately 70% - 85% of the voucher value back and help someone else get a great deal on their flight.
Yes, Air Canada Electronic Travel Vouchers and eCoupons are fully transferable to anyone with the consent of the original owner as the vouchers are not personalized.
You will not need to change the name of the Air Canada voucher to the new recipient. Furthermore, the original registered holder of the voucher doesn't need to be a traveler on new bookings made using their voucher.
To use the voucher, you simply fill in the voucher credentials (voucher number and pin) on the checkout page of the Air Canada website for the ticket purchase.
The voucher or eCoupon can be used multiple times until the balance is fully depleted.
Note that if your voucher number has only 13 digits and starts with 014, that means you have Future Flight Credits. These are not transferable and you will need to contact Air Canada directly to use them.
Your Air Canada electronic voucher generally cannot be exchanged for a cash refund after it has been issued.
Depending on the type of fare you purchased, you can try to apply for a refund at the Air Canada website. For Basic, Standard, and Flex fares, you will not be eligible for a refund.
If you are not able to completely redeem the electronic voucher before the expiration date, any remaining amount on the credit voucher cannot be converted into a cash refund.
If you are unsure what the remaining balance is, or if you have a voucher to use in general, you can check the Air Canada voucher management tool.
You will need to enter the 15 digit voucher number and the 4 digit pin associated with the voucher to see the balance.
Keep in mind that newly issued vouchers may not show up in the system for 24 hours. If you didn’t receive an email, try checking back after one business day, or contacting Air Canada customer service.
Lastly, you can also find the original balance of your vouchers in the confirmation email that was sent to you with the subject line “Your Air Canada Travel Voucher has arrived”. Be sure to check your promotion or spam folder if you do not see them!
Air Canada Travel Vouchers never expire and can be used multiple times until you have used the entire value.
Electronic Travel Vouchers and eCoupons have expiration dates that will be noted on your email.
The good news is that anyone who cannot complete their travels by the expiration date, Air Canada vouchers are fully transferable. If you don’t think you will be able to use it, you can always sell it on the SpareFare marketplace.
Make sure to check the expiration date on your specific flight voucher. If you decide to sell it, the longer the time until the expiration date, the better chance there is of a successful deal!
The value of the voucher will be denoted in the same currency in which you purchased the original ticket.
However, it is important to note that you can still purchase flights listed in any currency with the voucher as Air Canada will automatically convert the currency at the time of purchase.
The voucher is able to be used for multiple purchases for any flight and any destination up to the voucher's full amount.
Note that a maximum of two forms of payment can be used on a single booking. That means if your voucher balance does not cover the entire amount, you can only use one additional form of payment.
