Just last month, I was on an overbooked United flight to Denver. I was offered $600 in travel vouchers if I stayed overnight and got the flight home in the morning. I turned them down because I wanted to get home.

What I want to know is, can I use these vouchers for travel during peak seasons, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving?

Thanks

-Shawn

No, you can't use these vouchers during Christmas, because, well, you turned them down.

Shawn......

First of all those coupons are "probably" useable at any time....however.....they are likely only useable on "full fare" tickets.

In other words....they are useless, unless you are taking a very short haul flight and you cash them in.

Example.....Air Canada full "Y" fare YYC-GRU is $6,400.....discounted "Q" fare is $1,500....what's a better buy......$6,400 less $600 or the $1,500 ???

Sorry bu that should have been a "J" fare as in first class....full fare economy is $5,300  Big grin

I'm sure the price differences are similiar on UA and several other carriers as well.

Unless the coupons had any restrictions on them you could use them anytime, on any darem domestic or international. Generally the ones for overbooking are good for anything. Yes, like cash. You can not use them in the Skymall or any Star Alliance partners. Only on United.

Of course, you had to get them to use them. $600.00 is a large amount for them to give.

Does anyone know if they can be used once or multiple times, i.e. fly PHL-DEN-PHL for $400 and then put the other $200 of it up as a portion of the fare for PHL-SFO-PHL?

And lastly, are they non-transferable(Give to a friend, sell on ebay, etc.)?

Yes, they have residual value. So you can ticket as many times as you want within that value.

Yes, they can be transferred, but no they cannot be sold. They require the person whose name the vouchers are issued in to be physically present when the ticket is issued, even if the ticket is for someone else.
