So now when you book your next flight with them, you can be relaxed about not boarding it and getting a refund. But how do GoAir flight cancellation and flight change services work? Read ahead to find out.
What Is GoAir Flight Cancellation?
Under the GoAir flight cancellation services, you can cancel any flight that you book. There are some other airlines as well who offer flight cancellation services such as IndiGo. Sometimes because of unexpected circumstances, we can’t board the flight. Despite being one of the cheapest airlines, the cost of air travel is not cheap in general. So for cancelling your flight booking, you can just log-in to the airline’s website. You can also go to their app. Just go to manage bookings and find the flight cancellation option. Click on it, and then you will be able to see the refund amount that you are getting. Just confirm by clicking on I agree or yes button and your flight will be cancelled. But in case you are not able to cancel to your flight and do not show up for it, you will get no refunds.
Also, there might be situations when it is GoAir’s responsibility. According to the GoAir flight cancellation policy, you will be allowed a complete refund. Situations such as the postponement of flight or cancellation of it because of technical defaults in the flight or cancellation of flight because of weather conditions would mean that it is not your responsibility. However, before refunding you the full amount, the airline will ask you whether or not you want to travel in some other flight for which you don’t have to pay any extra amount. Depending on your approval, you will get the refund or not. Sometimes you may have to change the schedule of your flight and travel at some other time, you are allowed to do this as well.
