If I'm already a member of the Iberia Plus program , can I make a reservation for another person from my "Iberia Plus Personal area"? Yes, so long as that person will be travelling with you. If, on the other hand, you wish to make the reservation for someone without travelling yourself, then we offer you the option of making a reservation without this person needing to join the Iberia Plus program, using the option "If you are not a member of our Iberia Plus Program" and then " Continue providing passenger details ". This option is the one that allows you to make reservations without the need to be an Iberia Plus member. If you made the reservation from your " personal area ", all the details applied to the reservation would be your own and not the person's for whom you wish to make the reservation. You will need to access this service via your "Personal Area" only where the reservation you wish to make is in exchange for Avios and is for one of the beneficiaries you have registered in your Iberia Plus account.
Why should I join the Iberia Plus program? To take advantage of the program benefits, and because not only would your obligatory personal details be stored (meaning you don't have to fill them out every time you make a purchase), but you would also be able to obtain information on your Iberia Plus card and exclusive special offers for Program members, building up Avios right from the outset.

On AMERICAN EXPRESS cards, the four digit security code appears on the front of the card.
Do I have to show my credit card at the airport? You do not always have to show the credit card used to buy the ticket at the airport on the day of departure. When you purchase your ticket (either through Iberia.com or by calling Serviberia) and depending on a number of factors, such as flight dates, destination, cost of the ticket and the country where the credit card was issued, you will be notified immediately if you need to show your credit card at the airport on the day of departure. If you purchased your ticket from an Iberia ticket office or a travel agent's, please check again with the issuing office. If you are told upon purchasing your ticket that a credit card should be presented, you MAY NOT use a virtual card as this cannot be physically presented.
Can the final tariff change depending on whether I choose the reservation or purchase option? The tariff will change depending on the way the ticket is finally issued. When you make a reservation via Iberia.com, the price that is shown includes airport taxes, but ticketing fees are not shown, as this will depend on the chosen delivery option. Please remember that if you choose the reservation option, the reservation will be held for 48 hours, during which they can be purchased at any time by visiting the home page and selecting "Manage your booking" . If you prefer you can buy your ticket (s) at any Iberia office or Travel Agency. If you choose this latter option, every agency will apply its own table of ticketing fees. If this period expires without confirming the purchase, the reservation will be cancelled without any charge being made to your card. If you select the messenger delivery option, bear in mind that door-to-door delivery may incur an additional delivery fee, depending on the country from which the reservation is made (although several tickets can be included in a single delivery, with just one fee charged). To have the tickets delivered to an address, the person who receives the tickets will need to sign the delivery confirmation note. If you decide to buy the ticket, the issuing of the ticket (s) and charging to your card are performed automatically.
Why is it that such different fares can apply on a single flight? What factors are responsible? The fares that apply depend on supply and demand at any given moment. There are many circumstances that cause differences between one fare and another, not just the availability of seats for a specific period or flight, but also the conditions under which they're purchased, the length of stay, or the policy regarding changes to flights and refunds. In general, fare tariffs are divided into two broad groups or families, "tariffs without restrictions" and " tariffs where restrictions apply ". The latter category is subdivided depending on several factors such as: whether changes/refunds are allowed upon payment of a penalty or not at all, whether they must be reserved or bought a certain length of time before travel, whether they require a minimum or maximum length of stay at the destination, whether the trip is undertaken in one season or another, and the departure/destination point of the reservation.
What does it mean when restrictions apply to the tariff shown, or if there are no restrictions? When we speak of tariffs where restrictions apply we mean all those that have some type of limitation in the conditions that apply, that could refer to changes or refunds. Normally these are the lowest fares. The tariffs without restrictions would be all those that allow changes and refunds. These are the " full economy tariffs " and the " full Business Class tariffs ". Most of the tariffs where restrictions apply DO NOT ALLOW refunds, returns or changes, or else there are associated fees for administrative services.
Is there any discount for the disabled? No discount rates are considered for people with some form of disability. However, our website contains very good price offers, depending on the dates of the flights and their availability.
What does Class stand for in a ticket? The booking class for each flight corresponds to a letter. This system of classes is the standard one used throughout the airline industry. It means that fares have different conditions in terms of reimbursements, cancellations, etc., and they relate directly to the amount paid for the ticket and the space available in each class on different flights. The allocation of letters by Business and Tourist cabin depends on the route. The following is an example of how classes are distributed on an aircraft: J , C , A : Business without restrictions D , I : Business with restrictions U : Business Avios Y : Tourist without restrictions B , H , K , M , L , V , S , N , P , Q , O : Tourist with restrictions W : Tour Operators G : Groups W : Special agreements T , X : Tourist Avios
Is there any discount for the over 65s? No discount rates are considered for the over 65s. However, our website contains very good price offers, depending on the dates of the flights and their availability.
Are there any differences between child and adult tariffs? Yes, but they will vary depending on the departure/destination point and the tariffs that were applied, although as a general rule we can say that: Children older than two years and younger than twelve years of age at the moment the flights depart ( child ) travel paying 50% of the fare on domestic flights (flights within Spain) with full tariff (i.e. without restrictions). If this minor (baby or infant), is to reach his/her second birthday before the end of the journey, you will have to purchase a child fare ticket for the entire journey. Children that still have not reached two years of age at the moment the flights depart ( infant ) and that don't occupy a seat pay 10% of the adult fare . These passengers may only travel with an adult. If you want a child under two years of age ( infant ) to travel occupying a seat, the child will pay the tariff for children between 2 and 11 years of age ( child ), and will have to bring an approved child seat to travel in. In addition, if an adult travels with two babies ( infant ), one will pay the corresponding ( infant ) tariff, travelling on the adult passenger's lap, but the second baby will pay the tariff for children between 2 and 11 years of age ( child ), as they occupy a seat (they must bring an approved child seat to travel in). For reduced tariffs a percentage will be applied that will depend on the tariff chosen. On international flights this percentage rate will vary depending on the destination and the tariff applied. For some special offers no discount will be applied.
Must I always pay ticketing fees? All passengers, including minors and babies, incur fees for ticket issue, which are applied according to the departure-destination and the chosen delivery option or type of ticket issued. The fees to be paid will vary depending on these factors. The ticketing fees for each ticket bought at www.iberia.com for any class of tariff will be charged by Iberia in accordance with the following table*: Table of administrative fees at Iberia.com Remember that refunds incur an administrative fee, which varies depending on the global location. Ticketing fees are not refundable. Itinerary changes also incur an administrative fee, which also varies according to the country. Table of administrative fees for services
For a return trip, if I don't use the outward journey can I still use the return flight? If you have a fare that means you have to use plane ticket coupons in a particular sequence, please consider the following: If you choose not to travel a partial leg or do not travel in the sequence shown on the ticket, we will bill you for that leg according to the price set for the itinerary that is in effect at the time the booking is made. This price is a result of the published fares in force and can be checked if you wish to book the itinerary used as an individual booking. If the price is higher than that listed on your ticket we can stipulate that transportation on the other legs is dependent on the previous payment of the difference.
Can I cancel my ticket and obtain a refund? This will depend on the tariff chosen. Most of the tariffs where restrictions apply don't allow refunds, returns or changes, and where in some cases they are allowed, there is an associated penalty fee. If you purchased your ticket on Iberia.com, please check the refund conditions in the booking management section or call Serviberia. However, if your ticket was purchased through an agency, please contact them directly. IMPORTANT: The fee for issuing the ticket is non-refundable The fuel surcharge will be refundable if the fare conditions allow it
Can you change the name on the tickets? Changes to names on reservations of seats and/or tickets are NOT allowed. For this reason we ask you to pay special attention when writing the names and family name(s) of the passengers, which must coincide with the documentation they present at the airport on the day of the flight. If the details on the ticket don't coincide with the documentation presented, the right to board the flight may be denied.
I want to change the dates/destination/origin of my ticket, how should I do it? If you have made a booking for a flight and if your fare allows changes, you can now do these online. To do so you need to go to  Booking Management. If your ticket does not allow changes via Iberia.com, you need to call our  Call Centre  or go to an Iberia sales office to action them.
