Don't all of your travel funds have 2022 expiration dates? None should be earlier than that.

Actually no I had two (now one) that expire 11/12/2020.  

 

I can't figure out why.

I'm sorry but my question is about the Early Bird voucher which they are only issuing for one year from the cancellation date of the reservation.  

 

 


to add a bit of clarity to the discussion: anyone using a  voucher or travel fund MUST complete travel by the expiration date.

 

If one tries to book a flight using one of those and the flight s beyond the expiration date,

the system will not allow completion of the transaction.

One other important item of note: whenever you apply multiple travel funds or vouchers to a reservation, the expiration date for that reservation becomes the earliest expiration date of any funds or vouchers applied (if you end up canceling that reservation and using the funds for future travel.)

 

Also, when you use any of those coronavirus extended travel funds, the expiration date changes to one year from the date you make that reservation, or the earliest expiration of any other funds applied.
