Important Things To Know About the Avianca Refund Policy

The Avianca refund policy rules for voluntary refunds differ depending on the country you’re from as well as the type of fare. Make sure to check the type of fare in the confirmation email you received after the purchase. Then you can compare it to the fare option conditions and see if your ticket is refundable. You can check your country’s refund rules on the Refunds page once you click on the Types of refunds tab.

In case your ticket is non-refundable, you may be able to receive a refund of taxes on the tickets you didn’t use. Another option is to reschedule your flight and potentially pay some fees instead of losing the entire ticket value.

If you bought your plane ticket in the U.S., you’ll receive a full refund if:

  • You cancel your flight in the first 24 hours after booking it
  • The flight was reserved at least seven days before the scheduled departure

In some countries, passengers will be refunded their ticket price minus the administrative fees.

The involuntary refunds are caused by other situations not related to passengers, such as bad weather, airplane issues, and similar.

You can choose to be credited to the original payment method or to receive an Avianca voucher that you can use for future purchases.
