How to get tax refund on an unused nonref ticket
There is an emergency change of plan and I have to cancel a United ticket. Since it’s very cheap there is no reason for me to keep its value. I’ll never use the ticket in a year.
I called UA and they said there will be no refund on any tax. But apparently the fare rule says:
US/ZP/XF – WILL NOT BE
REFUNDED ON NON-REFUNDABLE FARE TICKETS
which means other taxes can be refunded.
Also, I checked the webpage for travel agency where it lists all types of taxes and whether refundable or not.
Is there any chance to get UA refund some taxes? I once did a no-show on an European carrier ticket and some taxes were refunded. Thanks for your attention.
