UPDATE: I tried using them to purchase an American Airlines ticket from Los Angeles to Miami. They charged $5 more than what the regular fare was which was fine. What was not okay is that they issued me a Basic Economy ticket which has all kinds of restrictions and I had to jump through hoops to get it canceled. With no warning their site said the ticket I purchased was an economy (Y) fare but that wasn’t the case. I would buy NOT buy this flight gift card and instead buy a gift card directly from an airline or an online travel agency like Expedia.

Givers choose the currency they want to buy it in and the amount (from $25 to $10,000). It works as a regular gift card and is valid for two years, so you can put the value toward more than one flight. (I asked the company, “If someone gave me a Flightgiftcard for $500 but my flight was only $350, what would happen to the remaining balance?” and I was told that the $150 balance would remain on the card.) The design of the gift card is customizable, and the card can be mailed as a physical card, emailed instantly to the recipient, or downloaded and printed for hand delivery. There’s even an option to record and send a video greeting alongside the e-card!

Hi Johnny! I have been having some issues booking flights through flightgiftcard. We don’t travel often, but our kids gave us what seemed to be a wonderful Christmas gift of $150 from flightgiftcard. We are trying to plan a trip for all 4 of us and I have found the site somewhat difficult to use. I also have a $175 voucher from Allegiant. I have emailed them and they suggest I book 2 flights through them and 2 through Allegiant.I’m not sure how that would work! Your article speaks only of the purchase of this item and not how to actually use it. Plus, they increase fares. You can only book through them. the options for booking are From, To, Depart, Return, Passengers, Flight class, Preferred airline(optional), and All or Direct flights. They are based in the Netherlands. I have to say that after being thrilled at Christmas I am pretty disappointed with their service so far. As far as I know, there is no recourse for a refund or anything like that. I apologize for rambling, but I was surprised to see an article about them. Wish us luck! Thanks!
