Brussels Airlines refunds

Leave a comment

On the odd occasion, you might need to cancel a flight. All airlines will charge you a cancellation fee (EUR 35 for Brussels Airlines last time I checked – a couple of days ago), and in many cases the fare is not refundable.

What airlines do not tell you is that taxes are always refundable, so in most cases, it might be worth paying the EUR 35 cancellation fee, so you can at least get some money back.

However, keep in mind that the refund might take up to 2 months to be processed, and if you forget about it in that time, chances are the airline will conveniently forget too…

Which means you might want to set a reminder on your calendar to ask them about your refund, and as many people increasingly do, tell them that your brother is a lawyer with plenty of time in his hands…
