Travel Bank credits are valid for 12 months from the date of issue. All credits expire at 11.59 pm EST on the expiration date. When your balance expires, it cannot be extended.
Travel Bank applies the “first to expire” logic on the credits that are used as a form of payment. For example, if you have 300 credits that will expire on 20 April 2018 and 200 credits that will expire on 11 June 2018, then the credits that will be used for the payment are the ones that will expire in April.
Travel does not have to be completed by the Travel Bank credit expiration date.
Travel Bank credits cannot be extended.
Refunds of tickets purchased with Travel Bank credits will be returned to the same Travel Bank account. The Travel Bank credit expiry will revert to the original Travel Bank expiry (12 months from the original issue date). For example, if the credit was issued on 15 Aug 2017 and the expiry date was 365 days, and the ticket was issued on 12 Feb 2018 and cancelled on 16 Feb 2018, the credit will revert to the expiry date of 14 Aug 2018. If the expiry date has passed, the credit will be cancelled and will not appear in your account again.
The amount of credits refunded depends on the fare rules of the ticket or product that is being refunded. For example, if you paid 500 Travel Bank credits for a ticket using your Travel Bank Credits and the refund cancellation fees is 50, then 450 Travel Bank credits will be added back to your account.
Travel Bank credits cannot be transferred.
Yes, you can use your Travel Bank credits to pay for a ticket for someone else.
