Budget airlines mean you can travel more and travel further for less. However, in order for the airlines to even break even, their standard tickets are non-refundable. If you find yourself with a non-refundable flight ticket, you don't need to worry about all of your money going to waste. You can sell it online, which you can find out how to do so in our complete guide to selling flights online. One of the most important things you'll need to do during the selling process is change the name on your booking. This can sometimes cost you extra on top of your ticket price, or there may be restrictions for certain types of tickets. Find your airline below and bear the name change fee in mind when you list your flight on TransferTravel.com.
