3 ways for more flexible travels
It is finally easier to hold on to your travel plans as the pandemic has moved to a new phase. However, many of us like having flexibility with travel plans. Valtteri Helve, Head of Finnair product offering, shares his tips for added flexibility when travelling with Finnair.
1. Choose a ticket type for your needs
The first step to ensure flexibility for travel plan changes is to choose a ticket type for your needs.
“Our Flex ticket is the most flexible one as it is fully refundable in case you need to cancel your trip – and it also allows travel date changes. Also, our Classic ticket is perfect for more flexible travels with an option to change the travel dates,” tells Valtteri Helve.
The exceptional flexibility we offered to reservation changes for all ticket types during the pandemic ended as of 31 May 2022, with the pandemic moving to a new phase. However, if you have a ticket booked latest on 31 May 2022, you can still change your travel dates once after the end of May without a change fee – no matter which ticket type you hold. The easiest way for making changes is online in Manage booking service. Check the detailed instructions here.
2. Cover for sudden sickness
Are you worried about getting sick messing up your travel plans? Finnair Cancellation Cover brings extra flexibility for Light and Classic ticket holders travelling in Economy or Premium Economy Class, as it allows you to cancel your flight and apply for a refund in case you cannot travel due to sudden sickness or accident to you or a close family member.
3. Check your travel insurance
“We strongly recommend travel insurance for all your travels. It gives you not only cover but also peace of mind for sudden changes,” Valtteri Helve tips.
It is always important to check what your travel insurance actually covers, as there are differences between insurances and their content.
