Hello, how can I help you?


Can I leave a reservation pending confirmation and purchase the ticket at a later date?

We offer a service that lets you organise the rest of your trip with greater peace of mind.
You can hold the price of the flight you have booked on iberia.com for 72 hours without having to pay for the ticket.
All you pay when you book is a service charge which is then deducted from the final ticket price if you confirm the purchase within 72 hours. The amount charged depends on flight duration.

Service charge:

Short and medium-haul flights


Long-haul flights



Once you have made up your mind, simply go to Booking Management and finalise your purchase within 72 hours. Otherwise, the booking will be automatically cancelled.

You can use this service in Austria, Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States (to be expanded to other countries). Please remember that you must book at least five days before the departure of the first flight.

You can hold your booking for 72 hours on Iberia flights (operated by Iberia, Iberia Express or Air Nostrum) and on codeshare flights with British Airways or when flights of both airlines are included in the same booking.

In certain other countries the purchase terms and conditions do not permit the automatic issue of tickets. In these cases you will be given instructions on how to proceed during the purchase process.
