There are two ways any flyer could easily cancel and get back the refund either going for Zero Cancellation or by buying insurance that would be recovered to the source from it was initiated like your credit card or debit card etc. For instance with MMT, just by paying Rs 99 -5,49 which is based on the ticket price, with Paytm it’s Rs 1,99 onwards and with another well known platform Goibibo, the same starts from Rs 1,49 for one-way domestic flight.
But Is It Really Free?
Well, it might seem herein that there is 100% refund or easy refund on every flight. But sadly that is not case with the Zero Cancellation service as there are certain fine print conditions one has to understand herein, as said above in view of MMT and Paytm etc, on flight ticket cancellation; the customer gets the full airline fare, allied taxes and surcharges excluding the nominal charges, zero cancellation service charge fee made at the time of online booking. And moreover with MMT, it’s only for specific flights and routes and offers refund one flight cancellation is done 24 hours before while with Paytm it’s 3 hours.
The other way is buying insurance for more refunding but one has to see the conditions here too. Lot of leading insurers in the country like Tata AIG General Insurance, Bajaj Allianz General Insurance and Apollo Munich Health Insurance etc offers insurance for ticket cancellation refunds but cover cancellation upto an extent and specific situations and certainly there is a limit upto which the refund can be claimed and settled for.
From above it seems that rather than buying insurance, it’s desirable to pick up Zero Cancellation option from the leading online claim settlements are simpler and easier rather than filling form offline and fetch the related docs. But before opting an option for air-ticket cancellation refund, do go thoroughly through conditions mentioned as the both certain drawbacks.
