Most major airlines offer free travel vouchers rebates or cash compensation. The secret to receiving your free airfare, rebates or cash compensation is to plan ahead for all of your flights. By allowing yourself flexibility in your flight schedule you can be one of the lucky people that receive the free Airfare rebates or cash compensation.

 

On 75% of US. Domestic flights and almost 100% of international flights, seats are continually overbooked. By planning ahead and allowing flexibility with your destination arrival times, you will be rewarded with free travel vouchers, rebates or cash compensation to any destination that an airline has service to.

 

They will go out of their way to make you happy, which could include putting you

on the next outgoing flight for FREE, a certificate for anywhere from $250-$600 that can be used on your next flight, or even CASH. Even if they don't bump you, they may upgrade you to FIRST CLASS for your flight. Or even a combination of several of those options. Any way you go, you can't lose.

 

Airlines give away free flights and upgrades and cash all the time to make up for their errors in projecting the number of people that will not show up for their flight. Every flight you take more than likely left behind a few people that couldn't make it on time and that is what the airline is counting on.

 

They will always sell a few more tickets than the plane has seats in order to fill all the seats with the assumption that people won't show up. But when everyone does show up, and there are no more seats left on that flight, the airline has to "Bump" people with valid tickets to the next flight.

 

Since they have made an error and you no longer have a seat, the airline has an obligation to satisfy you with some compensation for your inconvenience in order to get your loyalty back on their side so you will want to fly with them the next time you travel.

 

So consider this. For a couple hours of your time, you will have earned free air travel for your next vacation. The value of the free travel vouchers, rebates or cash compensation can be from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars depending on your destination. Not a bad return for a couple hours of your time. And you can repeatedly duplicate your results of free travel vouchers for the rest of your life.


Here's How It Works!

When you book your flight, be sure the flight is close to, if not sold out already. But make sure you get a guaranteed ticket, not just a stand-by ticket. Make plans for a good day of travel. Be sure that you don't have someone waiting for you at your final destination.

 

Get to the airport early for your flight and check in as soon as you can at the gate. When you check in, ask if the flight is full and if they need any volunteers to be "bumped" from your flight. If they tell you they do need some volunteers, give them your name and wait for the flight time.

 

When they start loading, listen for your name to be called. Be sure to only have your carry-on bags with you not any check-through luggage, since 9/11 the laws have changed. When you are bumped, your bags must go with your flight or this will not work.

 

Generally the carrier knows before most of the plane has boarded if they will need someone to be "bumped."  When they call your name and tell you that you have been "bumped" to the next flight 2 hours later, they will offer you compensation for giving up your "guaranteed" seat. Remember that they are at your mercy in order to make you happy, so don't be modest.

 

Involuntary Bumping

 

The Department of Transportation requires each airline to give all passengers who are bumped involuntarily a written statement describing their rights and explaining how the carrier decides who gets on an oversold flight and who doesn't. Travelers who don't get to fly are frequently entitled to an on-the-spot payment of denied boarding compensation.

When you are bumped involuntarily and the airline arranges substitute transportation
that is scheduled to get you to your final destination (including later connections) within one hour of your original scheduled arrival time, there is no compensation.

If the airline arranges substitute transportation that is scheduled to arrive at your destination between one and two hours after your original arrival time (between one and four hours on international flights), the airline must pay you an amount equal to your one-way fare to your final destination, with a $200 maximum.

If the substitute transportation is scheduled to get you to your destination more than two hours later (four hours internationally), or if the airline does not make any substitute travel arrangements for you, the compensation doubles.

Use Alternative Airports and Save 40% To 70%.

             

Using alternative airports can save you as much as 70% and you can have a private Limo drive you to the alternate airport and still save. When you call the airlines and ask the lowest fare from Los Angeles to Chicago, thatís what you will be quoted, even if the fare from Ontario California is 40% less - only 45 minutes away.

 

If you need a one-way ticket to Chicago and call any major airline, they are not going to tell you about a low-cost carrier flying into Midway Airport just 15 Minutes South of Chicago for $99.00 dollars each way from Los Angeles.

 

What your travel agent wonít tell you is that travel agents are leery of creative ticketing. The airline contracts with travel agents mandate that they cannot offer creative ticketing methods to their customers, even if it saves hundreds on a single ticket. Agencies canít afford to lose their contract to write tickets so they hesitate to offer you creative ticketing options. Using alternate airports is a form of creative ticketing no airline objects to but you have to be creative and check out your options. Here are alternate airports around the U.S. for your city. So, now the secret is out, cash in on your next trip and good luck.
