According to the airline’s website, when a flight is canceled, passengers will either be rebooked on an alternative flight or offered a full refund. While not a new policy, the Hungarian-based low-cost airline Wizz Air also offers a 20% bonus when you opt for a travel credit instead of refund for a canceled flight. The credits are provided automatically when flights are canceled online.

Frontier Airlines previously offered a limited-time waiver policy that incentivized passengers with an extra $50 credit if they voluntarily canceled an itinerary for travel between March 22 and June 17. In offering incentives to passengers to get them to accept travel credits instead of cash refunds, airlines are copying a strategy that has become widespread in the cruise industry.

Most major cruise lines in recent weeks have begun offering passengers on canceled sailings a bonus credit of 15% to 25% if they choose a credit instead of a cash refund.

Other cruise lines offering a 25% bonus credit to passengers who forgo a cash refund include Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, Seabourn, Silversea, Viking, Windstar and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. River line AmaWaterways is offering a 15% bonus.
