Am I entitled to an airport tax refund ?
Posted 12 February 2009 - 08:38 PM
The dilemna I have is this, my mate has made his mind up not to go , so, if I cancel and try for the refund I could end up with nothing in which case I would rather go on my own as it is paid for.
But on the other hand, I have 2 other friends going a month later, so I would like the refund and then book another flight and go with them.
Has anyone had any experience with this before ? Would I be likely to get the tax refunded back ?
Many Thanks chaps.

The above is taken directly from the KLM website FAQs!

You may also find that any refunds are subject to a "handling" or "administration fee".

Or to put it another way. If the travel insurance will cover all taxes and surcharges it will also cover the entire fare u paid.
Some airlines will however refund all taxes and surcharges including YQ (Fuel surcharges). KLM, I dont have any experience with.

Girl working with me tried to get a tax refund from Ryanair. After about a month of trying, the ryanair agent said, as the admin fee is higher than the tax refund, they weren't refunding her.

Can't you just pay a change fee and change the dates on the flight??????
Most likely booked into a nonrefundable bookingclass and no changes allowed after it has been bought. Typical the cheapest ticket.
