      • My wife and I booked round trip tickets between SFO and Newark International, traveling April 13, 2020 and returning April 28, 2020. We booked our tickets through Last Minute Fare Deal, the booking done November 21, 2019. We obviously do not wish to travel by air at this time. What are our rights if we cancel our flights, and must we contact Last Minute Fare Deal to cancel? Flying before November 19, 2020 is not a sensible option. Please advise.

      • I'm traveling with 3 friends to Europe on May 5th, landing in Munich. We do not want a travel voucher because we don't know if we'll be able to go within the next year. The whole charge is on my credit card. We would like a refund, not a voucher for future travel.
