I have a question, in this case the price went down and the customer (fraudster) wants to claim he didn't make the charge.

What about if the price went up, the merchant should adjust and charge him the higher price right?

Most card companies have a special classification for charges such as plane tickets that make those charges harder to dispute because of the very nature of the charges.

If you were legitimately led to believe that your card would not be charged, and it was, though, you can dispute.

If you knew it was non-refundable and are just trying to weasel your way into a lower price, then, NO.

roblox wrote:So a family member purchased 2 train tickets on the eurostar in europe on my credit card some 2 weeks ago for $500. I said it was fine to use my card but forgot to tell them to wait to purchase the tickets.

And today for some reason the same tickets are down by about half price for my travel in July.

The tickets are non refundable/exchangeable so I was wondering if I can file a dispute for this and would I have a chance of getting a refund?

I also saw an article online where they say to classify a dispute as an unauthorized transaction because the card companies generally favor this type of dispute.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sure, if you enjoy federal prison due to fraud.

Simply contact Eurostar, ask for them to remove the reservation and reserve the seats all over again. It has been a while since I have booked a train ticket on Eurostar, but if I recall correctly it is just a hold and not actually a purchase. Releasing the reservation removes the hold. If it isn't they can reverse it, and let you rebook.

Be sure to read your return policies for restocking/refund fees. It may not come out cheaper after all.
