Tip of the Week: Refunding Unused Electronic Tickets in IAR

Industry resolutions require any refund of a fully unused e-ticket to be processed as a full refund. It is not possible to refund only some segments or coupons of an e-ticket that has not been traveled.

In order to issue a partial refund of an e-ticket, at least one segment must have been used. For partial refunds that you enter into your IAR sales report, you will need to key the unused base fare and any unused taxes and tax codes. This is because IAR receives base fare value and tax breakout information by document total, not by individual coupon.

If you have any questions, please contact the Customer Care Center at (855) 816-8003 or We will be more than happy to assist you!

Please distribute the ARC TAC among staff and colleagues.
