Claim
blue credits

For every used ticket, your company earns blue credits which can be redeemed for tickets, upgrades and flight-related services. This results in immediate savings for your company's travel budget.

You can claim missing blue credits up to six months* after the completed travel date. Please note that only tickets written out in the name of one of the employees of the company can be claimed.

*New members can retro claim tickets for flights that were taken up to three months prior to their enrolment.
