And if you are wondering to cancel your bookings with Lufthansa, here’s all you need to know about their cancellation policy.

Hold tight!

Lufthansa Cancellation policy

Lufthansa offers you a 24 hours quick cancellation. The benefit is that you don’t have to pay external cancellation charges if cancelled within the safe period. This policy applies to every sort of ticket ( both refundable and non-refundable).

However, there’s more to the policy. You can book your tickets with the ‘Secure your fare’ option. But if you don’t take action within 48 hours, you must pay a cancellation of $39.

If you cancel your award ticket, you will have to pay a termination charge of $60.

Refund policy:

Along with the cancellation, Lufthansa offers a pretty hassle-free refund policy as well. However, one must not forget that the non-refundable tickets do not come under this policy.

Also, if you have used one or more than one item of your itinerary and ask for a refund, you will be getting the remaining portions of the ticket.

You are eligible for a refund only if you qualify for specific conditions. The conditions are as follows:

  • If you cancel your booking within 24 hours and the flight is at least seven days away from its departure date
  • If the authority cancels your flight
  • If there is a delay of two hours at least one day before the flight
  •  If there is a delay of 5 hours on the day of departure
  • If the flight is cancelled due to COVID-19 measures
  • If the booking was confirmed, but the authority denied boarding.
  • If there is a refundable ticket and you cancel it before departure
  • If there is a sudden case of death, illness, or some other emergency

You can always apply for a cancellation and refund via email, by a travel agent, or through the mobile application. You can also go to their official website and apply for your refund.

Apart from it they also provide a contact number to terminate your booking.
