R class cancellation within 24hrs of booking

All

I booked an R class ticket yesterday and now my plans have changed! I thought that every ticket sold could be cancelled without charge within 24 hours of booking and thereafter fare rules applied.

Is this not the case for QR? I just rang to cancel and was told that they do not have the 24 hour cooling off period.

Thanks for and advice

I think it depends where you bought the ticket. I think the 24hours thing is a US rule.

Many things we take for granted in the UK & EU seem not to apply elsewhere.
For instance, I was genuinely shocked to learn that non EU airlines operating outside the EU are not obliged to pay any form of compensation for delaying your journey by any duration.

In regards to the cooling off period with a QR ticket, what happens if you buy it through a UK based OTA?

In the US, in lieu of a 24 hour refund policy QR offers a free 24 hour hold of the reservation.
