Using an eVoucher
Our eVouchers offer a quick and simple way of paying for flights on ba.com.
You can use either the full value of an eVoucher or some of it to pay for a less expensive booking. If you don’t use all of it, we’ll simply send another eVoucher covering the difference.
How to use an eVoucher
- Find the flights you'd like to book
- Review your booking and enter your eVoucher details
- See your updated total and continue to payment
If you received an eVoucher for a flight cancelled between 9 March and 19 November 2020, updated options are available.
