Air Canada covid refund assistance please
« on: June 29, 2020, 02:54:31 PM »
Hopefully someone can advise -
I booked tickets online Air Canada in December to spend Pesach in Israel. Covid happened and on March 20 AC cancelled our tickets. I submitted fo a refund on March 29th stating Israeli law requiring refund. I received a denial on June 5 with the email below - What do I have to do? While I might be able to use my ticket at some distant point in the future, one of the tickets I purchased is for my daughter who will not be able to use it for at least 5 years. Is there any recourse?


>>Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. You can now rebook with flexibility, as we have implemented highly flexible and expanded booking options.

What has changed?

You can make a one-time change without a fee for all new or existing bookings made through June 30, 2020 for original travel between March 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021.

   If you booked directly with Air Canada and you need to cancel for any reason, you can convert your ticket to an Air Canada Travel Voucher that has no expiry date or to Aeroplan Miles with an additional 65% bonus miles. No change fee will apply. Visit https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/fly/customer-support/cancellation-options.html to learn more.

 
Next steps


Depending on what kind of booking you have, you may have multiple options for processing a cancellation.


   If you booked with a travel agent or any online travel agency (for example, Expedia or Priceline), kindly contact them directly for changes or cancellations. Each partner has a unique booking system that we are unable to access in order to adjust your booking.

   For Aeroplan bookings, please visit https://www.aeroplan.com/contactus for contact options.

   If you booked with Air Canada Vacations, kindly visit https://www.aircanadavacations.com/contactus for contact options.

   If you booked directly with Air Canada (including aircanada.com, the Air Canada Mobile App, and our Contact Centres) or Kayak, Google Flights, and Skyscanner, you can change or cancel your booking by visiting https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home.html#/home:mngBook.

   If you booked with Air Canada for Business, please visit https://www.aircanada.com/ca/en/aco/home/book/business-travel/for-business/offers/status-update.html for all updates.

 
How to process a cancellation


For bookings that are cancelled on or after June 1, 2020 and for travel after March 1, 2020, you will be able to immediately access our new cancellation options including the Air Canada Travel Voucher and Aeroplan Miles.


For bookings cancelled prior to June 1, 2020 and for travel after March 1, 2020, you will be able to access our new cancellation options as of June 15, 2020. We appreciate your patience while we upgrade our systems to make these options available to you.
 

We look forward to welcoming you on board again soon.
