HELP! United Vouchers. Is there a loophole?

Jump to last reply

We honeymoon last spring in Italy. On our departure out of Rome there was disruption to our flight due to the volcano eruption in Iceland so we volunteered to be bumped. We each received 3 United vouchers worth $200 each. We're now trying to book another European trip using those vouchers and seem to be having difficulty. We'd like to fly out of Austin, TX into Ljubljana, Slovenia and then from Dubrovnik, Croatia back to Austin. Apparently the vouchers can only be used for United flights, not Continental or Star Alliance. We've been reading that there may be a loophole in using these vouchers and wonder if anyone has done this: 1) purchased a refundable United Airlines flight using the voucher 2) called united and used the value of the new ticket toward the itinerary you really want (so long as there is at least one United Airlines coded flight in the new itinerary). If anyone has any suggestions as to how we should go about using these vouchers to make our European trip come true please let us know. This is our first time using vouchers.

Thank you in advance!
