Voucher to Travel

By Linda Tancs

You may have heard that Delta Airlines is offering travel vouchers for lost flights.  The interesting detail is that the vouchers are obtained as a result of bidding for compensation on a bumped flight.   Undoubtedly, compensation for bumped flights costs airlines a bundle.   The current scheme saves Delta money, particularly considering that the remuneration consists of a voucher for the value of a bid for the bumped flight.  Cash is undoubtedly king–but a voucher?  Consider your options.  The same applies to travel insurance plans offered by tour operators.  Be sure that a cancellation without cause policy results in a cash refund for the full value of the tour and not simply vouchers for a future tour in a time frame of one year or less.  It’s your money.  Spend it wisely.
