Travel credits

Learn about using your travel credit options.

There are three types of credits you may receive when you experience issues with your vacation: Future travel credit (FTC), customer care credit, and air credit. Before you start re-planning your vacation, take some time to review what options you have with each credit type and how they can be redeemed.

Keep in mind that your rebooked vacation does not have to be identical to the original reservation; you can pick a new destination or hotel. However, if you have an airline credit indicated in your credit notification, you may have to keep the same airline provider, depending on your original ticket types and original airline’s policies.

  • Future travel credit

    Future travel credit (FTC) is issued when a booked vacation is cancelled. FTC is nonrefundable, nontransferable and not redeemable for cash. They are valid for travel commencing within 13 months (395 days) of original departure date. FTC will be issued in the names of each passenger on the original reservation.

  • Customer care credit

    Customer care credit is valid on vacation packages or activities purchased through BeachBound. Customer care credit expires one year from issue date and is nonrefundable, nontransferable and not replaceable if lost, stolen or destroyed. Customer care credit is VOID if altered or obtained fraudulently.
    See details
  • Air credit

    The processing of air credit varies by airline. If your vacation package included flights, you may have a credit with your airline for the cost of those flights. Air credit may be redeemed directly with the airline or through BeachBound on your next booking.

Future travel credit

If you’ve received a future travel credit (FTC) from BeachBound, it will fall into one of two categories: a “per reservation” credit or a “per person” credit.

Per reservation: this type of credit is issued to reservations that are part of our “Rebook Now. Recharge Later.” program. Per reservation credits are valid through December 15, 2021. *

Per person: this type of credit is issued to bookings that did not include Travel Protection Plus or those with the Travel Protection Plus credit-only option. Per person credits are valid up to one (1) year from issue date and travel must commence by that date.

* Reservations scheduled to travel January 12, 2021 through March 31, 2021 may have been issued a per reservation credit with an expiration date of March 31, 2022.

Once you have your preferred destination, hotel, dates, and excursions picked, you’ll have two options:

  • If you have air credit, you will need to follow these steps to complete your booking.
  • If you don’t have air credit, you can continue through the booking process as you normally would.

When you’re ready to complete your reservation and apply payment, select "Travel Credits" from the payment type options.

  • You will need to use your original reservation number in order to redeem the travel credits.
  • If using a “per reservation” type of future travel credit, at least one passenger from the original reservation must be on the new reservation.
  • For all passengers redeeming credits, the name used on the new reservation must match exactly with the name used in the original reservation.
  • Please note that credits can only be applied in their full amount–you will not be able to apply partial credit when making your new reservation.

Once you rebook using your FTC, subsequent changes or cancellations are subject to airline fees at the time of change/cancel.

If you purchased travel insurance, your FTC will not include the cost of insurance because it is nonrefundable and non-creditable.
