Booking with Emirates
Hold my fare
The reservation fee is only blocked on your card in Emirates name and not actually charged. When you paid for your held booking in full, the reservation fee would be released back to you.
Depending on your banks processes, this can take up to 7 days. Since the funds were only blocked on your card, you may not see the released reservation fee show as a refund on your card – your bank balance would simply be adjusted back to what it would have been without the reservation fee held.
