When and how to cancel a flight ticket issued by Qatar Airways?
Booking a plane ticket means pre-assigning a seat to a passenger on an airplane following a specific flight for a specific date. Reservations are made at different rates. One of the important conditions for a particular tariff is the information on the moment of the reservation: the time intervals vary from one year to several days. Please note: the earlier you book your ticket, the less expensive it will be.
Until the moment of payment of the ticket, the reservation is considered preliminary. If, after the expiry of the period provided for by the chosen tariff, the redemption is not made, the reservation will be canceled unilaterally. It is imperative to cancel your reservation or to withdraw places. In some cases, a Qatar Airways airline employee contacts the passenger to confirm the reservation; in turn, the passenger himself can contact the company on the issue of extending the payment period. As a rule, 24 hours are allowed for the exchange of tickets. It should also be remembered that not all bookings can be canceled, especially when it comes to special reduced rates.
