Insurance and Vouchers
« Reply #9320 on: June 26, 2022, 11:02:11 AM »
Hello,
I just had to cancel my AA flight to Israel due to Covid. American gave me a voucher to use for a future date. I also made a claim for my travel insurance (generali), but they did not yet review my claim and there is no one to speak to there.
I wanted book a new flight, but am not sure if I should use my voucher or should I just pay regular and hope my travel insurance will give me the full payout for my original tickets.
Does anyone have experience with this?
Thank you!

I think that the forum rules need to be reemphasized.
Too many new users who are not following the rules.

Is there a way to like on tapatalk? Only options I see are Quote or Gift (which refers to gifting another user a tapatalk VIP pass).

Hi - I have a newbie question I hope someone can help me out with.  I purchased 8 tickets on one United reservation, and now the price has gone down significantly.  The tickets were originally on United Economy (not basic economy) and I don't think they're refundable.  Is my only option to cancel and rebook and then each person has a travel credit deposited in their name to be used for the future?  Is there a workaround to get fully refunded?  Thanks!

How do you get DDF status? Like what are the tiers? How do you get to each one, etc.?

Thanks!
