Banking On Travel Credits To Fly With JetBlue

Travel Bank of JetBlue

When you fly on a non-refundable flight, you always travel with this slight fear: what if your flight plans get canceled? All your money is dumped to waste. However, you are under the wrong impression. When you are traveling with JetBlue, you need not think about your changing plans, as JetBlue’s bank has got you covered. Wondering what a JetBlue travel bank is in the first place? This handbook will inform you everything you need to know about it.

What Is JetBlue Travel Bank?

You inferred right. It is actually a bank, but not like any normal bank where you keep the money you earn. Think of it as if you are playing a game in which you open an account, manage your reward points, and unlock different features using them.

The JetBlue Travel bank works in this way. You book a non-refundable flight, and later, due to some reasons it gets canceled. The amount you paid for your flight ticket returns back to you in the form of “Travel Points” in your travel bank account.

Hence, even if your flight is non-refundable, you still get your money back in another way. In the following sections, you will see the various ways you can use the JetBlue travel credit. But before that, let’s understand why you need a travel account in the first place.

Why Do You Need A JetBlue Travel Bank Account?

Your JetBlue travel bank account opens on its own the moment you receive a credit on your first JetBlue flight that got canceled. As soon as your account opens, you will receive two welcome emails that contain your login ID and a link to set a password. You must keep this information protected with you.

Having a JetBlue account helps you manage all the credit points you receive. Owning an account organizes your travel records, such as your credit balance and transactional history.
