If you bought your ticket from a travel agent or online with Expedia, Travelocity or other website, please contact the agent or site for a refund.

Refundable tickets

  • Tickets are not transferable and must be used by the passenger whose name appears on the original ticket.
  • All taxes are fully refundable.
  • We'll credit the card you used to buy the original ticket.

Partially refundable tickets

  • You may receive a refund for the refundable portion of your ticket, but if you request a refund online, you will lose any non-refundable value (which could be applied toward future travel).
  • To apply the remaining value of your ticket toward future travel, you must call 800-428-4322.

Non-refundable tickets

  • Changes are subject to a fee and, if applicable, any difference in fares. Your new itinerary will be priced at the lowest available published fare at the time of change, which may result in a fare increase.
  • Non-refundable tickets have no residual value. Once the value of a non-refundable ticket has been applied toward the purchase of a new ticket, the original ticket is considered used; any remaining value may not be applied toward the purchase of an additional ticket or the change fee.

Change/cancel: up to $750 (per passenger)

$150 per passenger

Award tickets

$200 per passenger

Domestic tickets

$150 - $750 per passenger

International tickets

Here are the rules:

  • If a reservation is cancelled on or before the ticketed departure date, the value of the ticket may be applied toward future travel up to 1 year from the original issue date. Travel on the new ticket must be completed within 1 year of the original date of issue.
  • If any part of the ticket is unused after the ticketed departure date and the reservation has not been cancelled, the ticket has no value.
  • Once the value of a non-refundable ticket has been applied toward the purchase of a new ticket, the original ticket is considered valueless.
  • Non-refundable tickets: All taxes are fully refundable (on request). However, if you request a tax refund, you will lose any remaining value of your ticket. The VAT for tickets sold within the U.S. and U.S. taxes US, ZP, XF are non-refundable; YQ and YR are considered surcharges, not taxes, and are also non-refundable.

Travel agents

Travel agents can refund non-refundable tickets in the GDS if a flight is cancelled or delayed, causing a misconnect, or if we issue a weather advisory and authorize a refund (in most cases, a weather advisory only allows for an itinerary change).

Add an OSI to the PNR noting the flight irregularity, flight number and date.

Refunds for seats, bags, upgrades and MoveUp

If we change or cancel your flight, change equipment or cause you to miss a connection, or if you're denied boarding on an oversold flight and we're unable to provide your ChoiceSeats, checked bags, upgrade or move to an earlier flight, we'll refund your fees proactively. If you have already checked in (either online or at the airport), you should check with an agent at the airport or call 800-428-4322 to request a refund.

Lower fare guarantee

When a new lower fare becomes available after a ticket has been purchased, customers are entitled to a lower fare guarantee refund within the following guidelines. We will deduct a change fee and apply residual funds in the form of a US voucher. Additional rules and restrictions may apply. Call reservations for a lower fare guarantee.

  • The lower fare is available for the exact itinerary previously purchased.
  • No portion of the reservation has been flown.
  • Lower fare guarantee refunds are not available for online ticket exchanges. Certain promotional fares may be excluded.

24-hour refund rule

You're allowed to cancel your refundable or non-refundable ticket for a full refund (and no change fees and/or difference in fare) within 24 hours of booking.


  • You must call 800-428-4322 (800-245-2966 TTY) within 24 hours of purchase to cancel the reservation and request a refund.
  • The reservation must have been booked at least 7 days before scheduled departure.
  • This policy does not apply to AAdvantage award tickets.
  • Refunds are only issued for tickets booked on usairways.com or with US Airways Reservations.
