My wife and I had planned a trip where we were going to treat my parents to a trip to Rome in November and things were booking up so we paid for the trip in April on Expedia and we got the travel insurance. My father just passed away in May. As a “let’s just see what our options are” call we contacted Expedia and Delta. We just wanted to change my father’s name to my sisters and have her take his place. The Delta rep stated that there were no transfers and then told my wife that “we shouldn’t have booked so early”. We don’t want to get a refund as we want to keep the trip. I have yet to contact a supervisor at Delta and we are waiting on Expedia’s response but do you know if we are barking up a futile tree with Delta or if we have any chance of getting the change. I would think they would be more interested in keeping the money and trip and just make the change then giving me a complete refund. I am just looking for some advice on how to handle this unexpected event.
