How to Change Your Airline Ticket

If you need to switch your travel dates, find out how to do it without getting charged.

I bought an airline ticket for the wrong day. Is it too late to change it?

9 Financial Fumbles You Can Fix

 

 

Federal rules require U.S. and foreign airlines selling flights in the U.S. either to give travelers 24 hours to cancel a ticket that was purchased at least seven days before departure or to hold a reservation at the quoted fare for 24 hours, after which it disappears unless you confirm and pay.

Most major U.S. and foreign airlines go with the first option, allowing travelers to cancel a ticket booked directly through the airline, without penalty, within 24 hours of purchase. (Third-party booking sites, such as Expedia and Priceline, do not have to comply with the federal rule, but most offer a similar window for canceling some kinds of tickets.)
