Can you refund a Air Canada travel voucher?

As of my last update in September 2021, Air Canada offered travel vouchers as a form of compensation or refund for certain situations, such as flight cancellations, schedule changes, or voluntary flight changes. However, please note that policies and offerings may have changed since then, so it's essential to verify the current information on Air Canada's official website or by contacting their customer service directly.

If you have received an Air Canada travel voucher and are wondering how to use it, here are some general steps to follow:

  • Read the Terms and Conditions: Review the terms and conditions associated with the travel voucher. Pay attention to its validity period, any restrictions on its use, and whether it can be used for all types of bookings or only certain fare classes.
  • Make a New Booking: Visit Air Canada's website or contact their customer service to make a new flight reservation. During the booking process, you will likely have the option to apply the travel voucher as a form of payment.
  • Enter the Voucher Code: If you have an electronic travel voucher, you will typically have a voucher code that needs to be entered during the booking process. The voucher amount will then be deducted from the total cost of the new reservation.
  • Confirm the Booking: After applying the travel voucher, complete the booking process and ensure that you receive a confirmation email with the updated details of your flight.
  • Check Remaining Balance: If the value of your travel voucher exceeds the cost of your new booking, the remaining balance may be provided as a new voucher with a new expiry date. Keep track of the remaining value and any new voucher details for future use.
  • Use It Before Expiry: Travel vouchers usually have an expiration date, so make sure to use it to book your flight before it becomes invalid.

Remember that specific procedures and policies may differ based on the type of travel voucher and the airline's current offerings. Always check directly with Air Canada for the most up-to-date information and to address any questions or concerns you may have regarding the use of your travel voucher.
