As part of BA’s Book with confidence policy, agents can now redeem the e-voucher towards their future travel to any destination.
As part of this capability, we have enhanced the OrderCreate 17.2 API (includes both long sell and short-sell), which now accepts e-voucher as a valid form of payment for flights. There can be two high-level possibilities as mentioned below:
If the e-voucher value is greater than the flight price, agents can pay the total flight price using the e-voucher and for the remaining balance, a new e-voucher will be created for future use.
If the e-voucher value is less than the flight price, agents must use the full value of the e-voucher and balance can be paid using cash/card.
Note: E-vouchers can be redeemed only for flights, any ancillaries must be purchased using cash/card.
