Frequently asked questions

I have travel booked already. Can I cancel or change because of COVID-19?

Yes. The best place to start is your online itinerary. Make sure to check for the cancellation policy that applies to your reservation. Many reservations already qualify for either free cancellation or no-fee change options. Just sign in to your account and check your itinerary. If you don't have an account, you can use the itinerary or confirmation number in the email you received when you first booked your trip. If you booked a package vacation, you'll have to cancel your lodging and your flight separately.

How do I know if I am eligible for a refund?

Many of our travel partners continue to review and update their policies. Check your online itinerary to for the cancellation policy that applies to your reservation. If it doesn't qualify for free cancellation, you can still cancel, but standard cancellation policies will apply.

If I booked a non-refundable ticket, am I still eligible for a refund?

Policies vary by carrier. Many airlines are offering airline credits and eliminating cancellation and change fees for travel impacted by COVID-19. Check your online itinerary or the airline's website for the most recent policies affecting your flight.
