How soon can you cancel a flight?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

You can cancel most flights within 24 hours of making a booking. Depending on the airline and fare rules, you may be eligible for a full refund. If you cancel outside the 24-hour window, you may be eligible for a refund, less a cancellation fee determined by the airline. Changes and cancellations can also be made online, through customer service phone lines, or at the airline's ticket counter.
