Have you booked a flight, hotel or holiday package (flight + hotel) reservation with Opodo which you need to cancel? Your ability to cancel or modify your reservation depends on the travel supplier that your reservation is with. Thoroughly read the terms and conditions of your travel supplier to find out if you can cancel or change your reservation. You have access to the supplier’s terms on Opodo’s Conditions of Carriage page. If the supplier’s terms are not available there, contact Opodo and they will send you a link to the suppliers terms and conditions. In some circumstances it may be impossible for you to change or cancel your booking which will then result in 100% cancellation fees.
Opodo’s customer service will help you through the process of cancelling or changing your reservation as much as they are able to. They will charge you an administration service fee of £25 per person to make changes or cancellations. In addition, the travel supplier may also charge you their own change or cancellation fees.
How can I recover more money from my Opodo reservation?
Is your Opodo flight, hotel or holiday package (flight + hotel) non-refundable? Do you want to recover more money from your trip? Have you ever thought of selling your reservation to another traveller and receiving your refund this way? All you need to do is change the names on your reservation to the person you are selling it to and pay the associated name change fees.
If you are based in the European Union, Opodo is obligated to allow you to change the names of the travellers on a package holiday, thanks to the European Package Travel Directive. Sometimes they can do this for the whole booking, sometimes they may not be able to change the names for the flights – this will depend on your airline. You can check our list of airlines, which allow name changes to see if yours does.
If you have a package holiday but cannot change the name of the flight, you can still change the name on the hotel booking and at least sell that. It is still much better than paying 100% cancellation charges!
If you are allowed to change the passenger name for your flight, your airline will always charge you a name change fee. Hotels usually do not charge anything for name changes. You can change the passenger names by contacting Opodo by phone or email. The price to change the name of a passenger on the booking will be shown to you before you process the request, so you will know exactly how much it will cost you.
I want to sell my Opodo reservation and get a refund that way, but don’t know anyone that wants it!
