Can I Sell My Travel Voucher?

Whether you end up with a travel voucher from COVID, a flight cancellation, or other circumstances, you might be wondering if you can sell it to get money back?
 
While most airlines will not exchange your voucher for cash, it is possible for you to sell your voucher and get cash for your airline voucher.  And keep in mind, if your voucher ultimately goes unused by the time it expires, that is free money for the Airline rather than for yourself!
 
Listing unwanted flight vouchers on the SpareFare marketplace is quick and has a high probability of selling for a great price.  


What Should I Check Before Listing My Voucher?


Before listing your travel credit for sale, here is a quick pre-flight checklist:

Is the flight voucher transferable: Airline credit vouchers can be transferred to another passenger, as long as the terms and conditions for the voucher allow for a third party to make a booking with it.  Check the voucher terms or the email you received from the airline to ensure other people can use your voucher.  If still in doubt, you can contact the airline directly. 

Expiration date:  Vouchers will most often have an expiration date, however, some vouchers may have no expiration date.  Also note that the expiration date might be a “book by” date, or “travel completed by” date.  

Any restrictions:  Some airline vouchers have restrictions on the types of flight, fare class, destinations, or transferability for flight credits.  Be sure to include any restrictions in your listing. 

Voucher credentials: Make sure you have the credentials to access your voucher.  Many vouchers will come with a voucher number and pin associated with them.  Some will require additional credentials, such as the name or email address of the voucher owner. 

Type of voucher:  Airlines often have different names for travel credits (Gift Card, Flight Credit, Coupon), but they generally mean the same thing.  Gift Cards are the most flexible, while vouchers issued across the different airlines will come with their specific terms and conditions. 


How Do I Sell My Airline Voucher To Someone Else?


To sell your voucher, you’ll need your voucher credentials, the voucher value, and the expiration date. You can find these details in the email you received from the airline containing your voucher confirmation.  
 
Here are the steps to sell your flight voucher online:
 
  1. List your travel voucher on SpareFare by completing the listing form for vouchers found here.
  2. After your voucher listing is complete, your offer will be live and you will begin to receive bids on your voucher which you can either accept or reject.
  3. Once you accept a bid on your voucher, you will submit the voucher details to SpareFare for us to validate them.
  4. After we have validated the authenticity and ownership of the voucher, we will provide the voucher credentials to the buyer. 
  5. You will be paid in 10 working days following the transfer of the voucher to the buyer.

That is all that is needed! Listing unwanted travel vouchers on the SpareFare will make you approximately 70% - 85% of the voucher value back and help someone else get a great deal on their flight.

Do I Need To Transfer The Ownership?


After selling a voucher, you do not need to transfer the name of the original voucher owner for a third party to use it.  There are some exceptions to that, but if a name transfer is necessary, it can be done on the airline’s website in a matter of minutes. 

Once someone has purchased your flight voucher, you will simply provide the credentials that can be used by the new owner for their flight purchase. 
 

Tips To Successfully Sell Your Airline Voucher


Now that you are ready to sell your voucher, here are some tips to ensure a successful sale.
