Hold My Fare FAQs
Hold My Fare is our new service that lets you reserve your fare quote for 72 hours. It means that if you want to pay later, you won’t be affected by any changes to the fares in that time.
There is a small reservation fee. This will be authorised on your card. However, the fee will be released back to you if you pay for your flights within 72 hours.
Hold My Fare is only for Economy Class flights. You can use it up to 24 days before your flight.
The fee is different depending on your route, and ranges for short-haul, medium-haul and long-haul flights. The fee applies to each passenger, but not to infants. And if you pay your full fare within 72 hours, you won’t have to pay the reservation fee.
You can choose to hold your fare when you get to the payment page on emirates.com. You will see your reservation fee, which you’ll need to authorise on your card. There’s also some information about how to use the Hold My Fare service and how to complete your booking.
This reservation fee will only be charged if you don’t pay for your full fare within 72 hours. We’ll show the expiry date and time so you know when you need to pay.
You can only use Hold My Fare for Economy Class flights, and not with other products. If you choose to hold a fare, any other products in your shopping cart, such as hotel bookings or travel insurance, will be removed from your booking. Once you pay for your flights, then you can add more products to your journey via Manage a booking.
Unfortunately you can’t use Hold My Fare when you book a reward flight (which you pay for using Skywards Miles).The service also isn’t available for Business Rewards bookings.
