What are flexible flights?
A flexible flight, or a flexi flight, is a flight in which the return date of the flight can be changed with no fees from the airline.
What does flexible flight mean?
Flexible flight means that the date in which you choose to travel on is flexible and therefore can be delayed or moved forward free of charge.
Can you book flexible flights?
Yes, you can book flexible flights with Alternative Airlines. Alternative Airlines offer flexible flights from over 600 different airlines.
How do flexible flights work?
Flexible flights allow you to make changes on the dates of your flight without any charges from the airline. If you've purchased a flexi flight and want to change the date of your outbound or return flight, please contact us and we'll have it arranged with the airline.
How to find flexible flights?
To find flexible flights with Alternative Airlines, simply use the search form at the top of the page to search for flights between your selected airports and chosen dates and — once the search results have loaded — select the 'refundable' filter to easily filter out all non-flexible airline tickets.
Next, click on the information icon to view the ticket details. If the ticket details state that changes can be made to the ticket with no charges from the airline, then the flight is a flexible flight.
Will I be charged for changing my flight?
If you've purchased a flexi flight and it is stated per the airline ticket details that changes can be made to the flight free of charge, you'll not be charged by the airline for changing the date of your flight. If you purchase the Alternative Airlines Premium Service Package, you'll not be subject to the Alternative Airlines administration fee either.
If you have done both of these things, the only time you'll have to pay money for changing your flight is if the price of the new flight you're flying on is higher than the price of the flight you originally booked. In this case, you will have to pay the difference in price between the two flights.
