Airlines’ 24 hour cancellation policy

Book a flight and want to cancel? You can for free within 24 hours

Book a flight and want to cancel? You can for free within 24 hours

Have you ever booked a flight in the heat of the moment and plans changed or you simply changed your mind? I have, more than once. Or, say you booked a flight and the fare dropped for the same route on another airline by $100. What can you do?

First, don’t panic, you have options.

The airlines listed below have a 24 hour cancellation policy which allows passengers the option of canceling reservations without penalty or fee. This policy even applies to fares that say non refundable when you book. Just make sure you cancel before 24 hours to get a full refund with no cancellation fees.

Most airlines allow bookings to be cancelled within 24 hours online or over the phone. I recommend taking the time to call the airline where you can talk to a real person who will make sure the reservation is cancelled and that you will be issued a full refund without fees.

So cancel away and say thanks to the 24 hour cancellation policy.
