Welcome to FT and no worries about your English. It's fine. Unfortunately, once the 24 hr cancellation period is up, most airline tickets are non-refundable and become worthless if you miss the first or any mid point segment. You're best alternative is to call the airline to see if you can use the ticket as a credit against the future flights your husband needs. Good luck.

Welcome to Flyertalk Thailenol (fun handle btw).

As this is dealing with an Online Travel Agent, we'll move this to our Online Travel Booking and Bidding Agencies forum.

Sorry to hear about your problems. You need to clarify with Expedia whether the ticket can be changed or not. Many tickets is changeable against payment of a (often rather substantial) change fee + any upfare to the current fare level (most likely the ticket to TH for travel next month is much more expensive now than when you purchased the tickets; so there will be a significant surcharge to pay in addition to the change fee). If the ticket can be changed you need to do that (and pay for the change) - also in order to protect the return flights which your husband intends to use. If your husband doesn't use the outbound flights (i.e. he no-shows for the flights) the remainder of the ticket will be cancelled and can not be used, i.e. he will not be able to travel on that ticket to get back to the US. If the ticket can not be changed there is nothing else to do than suggested above; cancel the existing ticket and buy a new one. Try asking for a credit to be used for future tickets, but it may not be possible receive such credit; it really depends on the airline.

Maybe your husband would be able to travel with you after all? - as this would solve the situation and avoid a significant loss on your part.
