In March my son and I gave up our seats at IAH on an overbooked flight to ATL. We each received $400 vouchers. We live in Houston, and the gate agent still gave us a hotel voucher because I was concerned about the otherwise long rush-hour drive back to the airport. The agent was very happy to have us as volunteers -- he said every flight out had been overbooked for days on end during spring break -- and the hotel voucher was no problem. When volunteering, I'd be sure to say a hotel voucher is important, and you just might get it even if you're in your home city.
