Can I cancel a flight I booked with Expedia? 



Please note this article is for flights booked with Expedia. If you booked a package holiday or a hotel only, visit the following articles: 



Are you unable to use the flight you booked through Expedia and are wondering how to receive a refund? Unfortunately, whether you are allowed to cancel your booking depends on the third-party airline’s cancellation policies. These policies are available to you in your original booking itinerary or you can go to “Manage My Flight”  where you can find a list of airlines and their individual rules and regulations. If you are able to cancel your flight, you are responsible for paying Expedia’s flight cancellation fee of £25 per passenger on top of any cancellation fees the third-party airline charges. 


If you booked in the last 24 hours, some airlines will allow you to cancel for free. You should check the Airline rules + restrictions section in your itinerary for details.


Important note: If you have booked two individual one-way tickets under the same booking and you need to cancel or change one or both of your flights, the cancellation/change rules and regulations are subject to the individual third-party airline. This means that the change/cancellation policies and the fees associated with them may differ from one ticket to the other. 


How can I cancel my Expedia flight?


Step 1: Log into your Expedia account

Step 2: Go to My Trips.

Step 3: Select Cancel Flight and follow the instructions.

Step 4: If one of your flights is with a low-cost airline, like Frontier or Spirit, you’ll need to contact the airline to cancel that flight. (They like to do that part on their end.) You can cancel your other flight with Expedia.

And you’re done!


Please note, If you miss or skip your departure flight, the airline might cancel your return flight.


What if I am unable to cancel my Expedia flight? 


If you have booked a flight that does not permit cancellations, you are not doomed! Did you know that you can sell your airline tickets to another person and you can recover your money that way? Read “My Expedia flight is non-refundable. What can I do?” below to find out more about selling your non-refundable airline tickets.



My Expedia flight is non-refundable. What can I do? 


You can sell your own flight to someone else and receive your refund that way! All you have to do is change the names to person/people you are selling your flight to and pay the associated name change fees to Expedia and the third party airline. You can sell your own flight to someone else if your airline allows name change fees. You can check our list of airlines, which allow name changes to see if yours do. On the same page, you will see how much your airline charges for name changes.

Can I change my Expedia Flight?

For any changes made to your flight you will have to pay Expedia ’s change administration fee of £25 per passenger on top of any change fees from airline you are flying with.
