1 Bump

If you get offered a flight voucher to take a bump from your flight, do you take it or do you just want to get where you're going?

We pretty much always take them so we can travel more :)

  • I would if I was alone. Usually I have one child with me and I don't want to sit around or wait til the next day.

  • We don't take the vouchers ... we want to get where we're going.

  • I almost took one when we were vacationing in Puerto Rico because they offered a flight voucher, hotel stay and $200 for two extra days vacation, but my sister (whom I was traveling with) wanted to go home.

    I would say it depends on the travel situation and how necessary it is to get home ASAP.

    I personally would always take them if it was just me, and I was just leaving.

  • I don't travel by air that much, but depends where I was going and when I had to be there, but yes I'd take one.

  • I rarely take them, the handful of times I have I ended up not using them and they expired. (I don't fly with one airline exclusively, I always go with the cheapest fare.)

  • Depends if I am traveling with or without kids. If I am by myself I would take it but with the kids I do not want to make the trip longer.

  • Take the voucher. It adds adventure and value.

  • I have only been offered a voucher once and we accepted but found out a few minutes later that they accepted too many so we had to stay with our original plans. But I agree with the others, it really depends on the situation and if I had to be back by a certain time.

  • If I had the time, I'd take the bump. But I'd ask for more than they are offering.
