Myself and a friend will be unable to make a return flight from Gatwick to Newcastle in July. (I stupidly miscalculated the distance and time it would take to get to Gatwick and through security after a matinee show, for a 7pm flight home! Stupid, I know!)
Anyway.... I know the flights are non-refundable. However, I have heard that I may be able to get my APD tax back at a total of £26, which would be much appreciated, if it's possible!?
Can anyone tell me.... Should I cancel the flight and request the tax on that cancellation call? Or simply not turn up for the flight and then claim it back after a no-show? Will there be any hidden costs involved if I don't show and then claim?
I'd be so grateful for a response as I've scoured the internet and have seen so many contradictory statements.
Thanks in advance :-)Edited: 6:18 pm, April 02, 2014
