To participate in an auction you must register. Registration is free. To register, click on Registration, Create Profile and fill in the form. Secure encrypted technology is used to ensure privacy and credit information security. You will receive confirmation and a password via e-mail within a few minutes. In this auction format you will not be asked for credit information until you wish to place a bid and bidding activity is visible to all who enter the site.

When you place a bid, you enter a legal and binding contract. Only people who can make legally binding contracts can participate in the auction. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you certify that you are of legal age, 18 or over. Please note that if you make a winning bid, your credit card will be charged for the value of the item plus applicable taxes and handling fees, as shown in the auction rooms.

Bids appear live and are accepted in the sequence of their electronic entry. Bids may not be withdrawn once submitted. Bids by e-mail, telephone or any method other than electronic submission via the site are not accepted.

Bidding continues until the closing time indicated in the auction room. For example, if the room closes at 17:00, bids that are received by the server up to and including 17:00:00 will be accepted.

Auction items are offered subject to availability in specific reservation classes. Winning bids will be confirmed by e-mail in the 24 hours following the auction.

Cancellation of an issued Lufthansa ticket(s)

For purchased and issued Lufthansa tickets, the following cancellation clause applies: Once issued by Lufthansa, ticket(s) can be canceled by customer up to 72 hours before the usage date, providing payment of a 50% cancellation fee based on winning bid price, or $150 US per ticket, whichever is lower. Thereafter, the ticket(s) is/are non-refundable. Please note that a $35 US handling fee applies to all winning bids, including cancellations for any reason.

Lufthansa reserves the right to postpone, delay, interrupt, or cancel any auction or auction item for any reason, at any time. Lufthansa is not responsible for bids not being processed or accepted due to technical difficulties. Reselling of purchased lots is not permitted under any circumstances.

Payment Terms

Payment is due at time of notification of winning bid. Payment may only be made by credit card.

If you are purchasing an item for a friend or relative, you will be asked via e-mail to provide us with the name of the person who will be using the ticket. If you purchase a pair of tickets, you will be required to provide the name under which the second ticket will be issued.

Lufthansa will make every effort to confirm all information needed to process your purchase. However, if we are unable to secure all required additional travel details with you within the time-frame outlined in the notification of the winning bid, the item will be withdrawn and cancellation fees as outlined above will apply.
