Voucher Option

Aer Lingus now starting to offer a voucher option for people who want to cancel ticket.

Its offering 10% on top of the total fare paid including taxes

10% extra, but also when using a voucher EI does NOT change handling fees per passenger so you save a further €9 per flight per passenger

You are betting on EI surviving but you are making 10% + a further €9 per flight saving IF the voucher covers the total cost of the ticket, if there is any cash portion the €9 fee will be applied

  • If EI go bust the voucher has no value
  • €9 handling fee per passenger is not charged using vouchers
  • Voucher can be used to purchase multiple flights
  • It may be possible to merge multiple vouchers (and this could save you money, see below)
  • Cannot pay with a voucher and combine with pay with Avios
  • Vouchers have no expiry (possibly 5 years, but normally 2099 is the indicated date)
  • Lead passenger name must match that on the voucher
  • If you mix and match voucher + cash the €9 per passenger per flight handling fee will reappear
  • Issued in the currency of the point of origin, so if issued in USD, can only be used for flights sold in USD
