Do you charge a service fee?

Where can I access information on credits earned?

You can access information on credits earned such as total credit available and more at My Account > Credits.


What happens if the price goes down after I book?

Our crystal ball hasn’t come in just yet. Until it does, we cannot predict any price changes. With Airfordable, you are paying to protect your airfare from increasing in price which can be a lot more costly than price drops.

Can I change my flight prior to paying for it in full?

You absolutely can, but there’s a cost. Most airlines charge a change fee anywhere between $200-$500. It can range from $200-$500. This fee as well as the difference in ticket price must be paid to us before any changes can be made.

I need to make changes to my payment dates.

We are happy to do that. Just let us know before we get a failed payment alert. Those aren’t fun.

How are my payments made?

We automatically deduct each payment on your scheduled dates. No need for any action on your end.

The dog ate my card. What do I do?

Bad dog! If anything happens to your card prior to paying your ticket in full, just login and update your account with the new card information.

Can I pay more than my regularly scheduled payment?

Absolutely. Just send us an email and we can process the payment behind the scenes and apply it to your account. We plan on giving you the ability to do this in the near future.

I can’t make my payments anymore? What do I do?

Communication is key. We understand that life happens and you can’t control it. Let us know as soon as possible so we can begin the process

What happens if I need to cancel my booking while on an active installment schedule?

In the event of a cancellation within 24 hours of booking, the upfront payment paid will be refunded. If you cancel after 24 hours of booking, all prior payments paid are non-refundable and the remaining balance of the minimum payment amount (if any) must be paid to cancel the booking.

Who do I contact about a refund after I have paid for my ticket(s) in full?

Any refunds or credits are determined by the airlines policy and procedures and no longer involve us. Once you've paid your ticket(s) in full and you have received your ticket(s), any changes to your tickets must be done directly with the airline. The same as you would if you purchased the tickets directly with them.
