Passengers May Be Eligible for TSA Fee Refund

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Most airline tickets are non-refundable if you miss your flight, but 8 on Your Side discovered one fee you can get back. If your flight gets canceled or you fail to go through airport security, you could get a refund from the Transportation Security Administration.

Every airline ticket includes a TSA fee called the September 11th fee. That fee is refundable, if you cancel a flight and your luggage never goes through security.

Money collected from the fee goes to the TSA. The airlines do not receive money from the fees.

The fee is small, $10, but if a family of four cancels a flight, the family could get $40 back from the TSA, and that's better than nothing.

Most travelers are unaware they can seek a refund from the TSA, because airlines aren't required to notify customers. Passengers must request the refund.

Those wishing to seek a refund must contact the TSA.
