    Default Flight name change question

    I've booked flights for me and the mrs - but i've booked her in her married name and her passport is in her maiden name!!
    I've spoken to the JET2 call centre and they said if we turn up at the check in desk with her passport and marriage certificate they 'should' be able to change her name there and then free of charge.
    Or they said they can change it now for £55 !!

    Anyone had and experience of this before?
    We dont want to turn up and find that they refuse us.

    How soon is it before you leave?

    I remember what we did was with the right forms/documentation we were able to get Mrs D's new passport in her married name before we were actually married so that we could then fly out the day after the wedding with the passport in her new name. As it was something that we hadn't realised we could do (get the new passport before the wedding) it was getting close to the day, so I went to the Passport Office in London (after making an appointment) and did it all in an afternoon (cost a bit extra obviously). The Passport Office in Durham should have the same facility.

    Just another option if you liked the idea of being able to fly with a passport in her new name on your honeymoon.

    Another rip off in this country but we were told to book the holiday in the July after we got married in the April in her maiden name as the passport might not be back in time but then on our return we had her passport changed but you have to pay for a new passport, £75 which I think is a joke .

    tis a rip off indeed... if they charge you that is..
    I work in several areas in aviation and i know..as this is a job i do, a name change on a booking literally takes 10 seconds to do!!.. unfortunately a money making scheme!

    My daughter is a member of the cabin crew for Jet 2, interestingly she has yet to show her passport. The airport air side pass is all she has ever shown to leave the country.

    we leave in about 2 weeks.
    she refuses to pay £70+ to change her name on her passport until it runs out - about 4 year left on it, which is fair enough
    If you want a one day passport service it is £110+ !!

    when we've been away before i've always remembered to book in her maiden name - but forgot this time.

    think i'll ring Jet2 again and get them to confirm what they've said

    Just rang them back.
    Just aswell i did!

    We have booked the 'online check-in' facilty and the wifey in the call centre says that once we have checked in online, then no changes can be made to the booking.

    So she advised us to go up the Jet2 sales desk at the airport asap to get the name changed, then come back and do the online check in.
