Hi,

I am new here! Great site lots of info! My question is that I cancelled a flight back in July last year from ADL - BNE for family reasons. Anyway had a voucher for $863 to use for my partner and I who was on the original booking. We had a chat today and figured we had some time coming up and would book a flight to Sydney return using the voucher. All good had a look at flights $160 each way, awesome comes under the voucher value. Then went through my booking to book it and the prices all jumped to $235 each way per person.... So now for the same flights it's going to cost 300 dollars more... Why did they do this? Is there a way to get the original pricing? Any help or suggestions would be really appreciated as I don't particularly want to pay out more...

Cheers

The difference will be the change fee. It's applied at the time of rebooking, not at the time of turning the original booking into a voucher.

I also believe that using a credit, you can only purchase a fare bucket that is the original fare or higher. Hence why they can't see the cheaper fares available online.

That is my memory, but it could be a tad hazy.

Thanks! - am I able to use my FF points to cover the gap? Or do I need to pay - probably cheaper to pay with $??

I think you may be right.
OP this means if you had say a saver fare before you cannot book a red e deal now.
