COVID 19 credits with Priceline

Hi. I have an airline credit with Priceline that expires January 8, 2021. It was for a 7 week trip I planned starting 5/12/2020. My spouse and I are both over 65. I am concerned that the pandemic will not be resolved by January 2021. And we would like to rebook a similar itinerary in late spring of 2021, after there is a corona vaccine. Does anyone have any suggestions or avenues to extend those deadlines befor those credits expire? (The airline is Icelandic Air.) MMM in Wyoming

expires January 8, 2021

Does that mean travel has to have happened by then, or is that the 'buy by this date'?

If the latter, you should be apply it toward airfare for travel up to Oct 2021.

Contacting Priceline to see what the 'expiration' date means and if it can be extended would be my advice.

Jan 8,2020 is the deadline to use the credit. In other words I have to fly by that date. M

This is a very optimistic assumption. We all hope you are right but don’t get sucked into the hype-vaccines are hard to do right and take a long time to develop. Was this flight canceled or did you cancel? Were you offered a refund? Do you have travel insurance? I would re-engage with Priceline and see if you can get a refund. If it’s a hard no, see if they would extend the credit another year (January 2022). If this does not bear fruit file a claim with your travel insurance as a credit expiring in that short a time is a loss.
