What To Do When You Can No Longer Go On Vacation?

It's all been planned. The vacation has been booked and the countdown has been on for months. The kids schedules have been sorted and you've booked time off work. So what happens when the unimaginable happens...the unforeseen...

Most vacations nowadays are non-refundable when booked because you never think that the unimaginable will happen, that you won't be able to go on the holiday that you have been looking forward to for ages. Non-refundable tickets are always less expensive but don't offer the flexibility that the more expensive tickets do.

Can I really sell my pre-booked vacation?

Yes, we always suggest that you check with your specific travel provider that you can transfer and change the name on your booking. This usually just means a quick search online or a call to your travel provider's customer service department.

Where can I sell my pre-booked vacation?

TransferTravel.com is the dedicated platform for buying, selling and transferring all of your unwanted travel plans that can no longer be used. The first thing that you need to do is register on TransferTravel.com and then create a new listing. Creating a new listing is simple and easy and only takes a few minutes and the TransferTravel.com platform. You will need to add all the details of your listing, and the departure date and time. You can also add a title and description explaining your vacation and why you can't go.

Will I make my money back when I sell my vacation plans?

This is entirely up to you and what you price your vacation at. We suggest that you price your vacation at less than the original price to entice buyers. Even if you lost £100 it is better than losing the whole vacation. The buyers in this market are looking for a bargain and will happily take your holiday off your hands and it's not likely that they will want to pay full market value.

Can I change the name of my vacation?

As mentioned above, always check with your travel provider as per the terms and conditions regarding name changes and transferring of tickets to someone else. Accommodation and vacations are generally easy to change the name on a booking and just require the seller to contact the travel provider directly and then request a name change on the booking.

How does the selling process work on TransferTravel.com?

Once a buyer finds the vacation package that they want they can buy the vacation right away on TransferTravel.com - through our Buy It Now button. We have teamed up with the international trusted payment system PayPal to bring secure and trustworthy transactions to TransferTravel.com. Once the buyer has bought your travel plans you will be notified by TransferTravel.com and a new transactions message will appear between you and the buyer. This is where you can exchange secure information about name changes and any other details that need to be changed. Once you have the details to change the name, go ahead and once you are done upload evidence for the buyer as to the name change on TransferTravel.com.

When do I get payed for my vacation I can no longer use?

As a seller you are payed once the buyer takes your trip and notifies TransferTravel.com 24 hours after they have said "Bon Voyage"
