What happens if I amend or change a flight booked with Freedom fare?
Any changes made to a flight booked with Freedom fare voids the full refund benefit. Airline cancellation fees, and Cleartrip fees will be applicable. We recommend cancelling the flight entirely.

I cancelled my flight directly with the airline. Am I still eligible for the Freedom fare refund?
Unfortunately not. Cancellations must be made on the Cleartrip website or mobile app to qualify for a full airfare refund. If you cancel your trip, or tickets, with the airline Freedom fare benefits are voided.
Can I use discount codes or Payback with a Freedom fare booking?
