Process a Full Exchange/Reissue

ARC/BSP Canada Bermuda


Refunds and Exchanges Quick Reference
OVERVIEW
Exchanging a ticket can involve complex rules, different currencies, and complicated procedures. If the process is manual and labor
intensive, you may miscalculate or overlook additional revenue.

Refunds and Exchanges (formerly known as QREX), the Sabre global distribution system automated refund and exchange solution,
gives you the ability to process various exchange transactions quickly.
EXCHANGE VS. REISSUE
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) defines two ways to calculate a ticket change, and in what circumstances each
must be used. The two methods are EXCHANGE and REISSUE.
EXCHANGE When you make a change to the first flight coupon of a wholly unused ticket, Refunds and Exchanges
considers this an EXCHANGE and re-prices the itinerary using current fares, current taxes, and current Rate of Exchange when
converting to and from NUC.
REISSUE When you make no change to the first coupon or the passenger has partially used the ticket, Refunds and
Exchanges considers this a REISSUE and re-prices the itinerary using historical fares, historical taxes, and historical Rate of
Exchange when converting to and from NUC.
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS
You must have a PNR active in your work area
and have your printers assigned prior to beginning
an exchange.

The currency code of the base fare must be the same on both
tickets
One ticket cannot have an EQV currency if the other ticket does
not

Exchange must be processed by the original


ticketing agency (under the same ARC/IATA
number)
QUALIFIERS

The EQV currency must be the same on each ticket

Security Restrictions for Ticketing a Retained PQR


Non-branch locations are prohibited from displaying or ticketing a retained PQR.
If the agent issuing the ticket does not reside in the same country, or the same Canadian province as the agent who
retained the PQR, the ticketing agent cannot issue the ticket from the retained PQR. They receive this error response:
RETAINED PQR LOCATION DOES NOT MATCH TICKETING LOCATION
This ensures that the price the system has returned and calculated based on a particular country as the point of sale is not
issued in a different point of sale. If a ticket does need to be issued in a different country then a new PQR must be
retained.
