How to reclaim air taxes for under 12s

How to reclaim air taxes for under 12s 

You may have heard the news that thousands of air passengers are due a tax refund on child tickets, but how can you claim it back?

2517

Despite air passenger duty being scrapped for children under the age of 12 in May, passengers who have already booked and paid for flights have the right to claim back the tax they have paid.

The change occured on May 1 this year, and all flights booked will automatically deduct the duty for children, which amounts to £71 per passenger.

But there is still the issue of thousands of families who booked flights before 1st May who are also entitled to a rebate. Parents who paid £13 tax on a flight to Europe, including flights to Turkey and North Africa, and £97 on longer journeys, did not need to pay as long as the flight departs after May 1.

Some airlines, such as British Airways and Aer Lingus, are refunding air taxes automatically, but others require passengers to fill out a form to claim the money.

Find out at Money Saving Expert how to get back the money from your airline.
