Your reservation total is updated and you simply need to pay the remaining balance by debit or credit card (the total amount of your e-vouchers must be less than the reservation total).

  • E-vouchers are non-transferrable and must be issued in the same name as the name indicated in the reservation.

  • E-vouchers may not be used to pay for flight options (Time to Think, travel insurance, etc.).
You can pay for your ticket with traveler’s checks by visiting an Air France ticket office or at the Air France ticket counters available in certain airports only, for travel :
- within metropolitan France,
- to or from overseas France,

There is no limit on the number of traveler’s checks you can use to pay for your ticket. However, the total amount of your traveler’s checks may not exceed the ticket price.

For all refunds, a voucher will be issued to purchase another ticket at a later date.
