Airlines are required to either allow passengers to cancel their reservation and receive a full refund without penalty for 24 hours if purchased at least seven days before a flight's scheduled departure date and time, or allow passengers to cancel their reservation and receive a full refund without penalty if purchased at least seven days before a flight's scheduled departure date and time. Most airlines also have policies regarding changes to flights after they've been booked; generally, these can be made for any reason, as long as it is not due to payment protection insurance or another form of credit protection offered by some insurers.
In most cases, the passenger can request a refund from the airline for any reason within this period. If the flight is canceled because of circumstances outside the control of the airline (such as severe weather conditions that prevent the flight from taking off), then the airline must provide an alternative flight at no charge to the customer. In some cases, this requirement may be satisfied by providing a voucher valid for a future flight. If the flight does not occur within 14 days from the requested date, the value of the voucher will be forfeited by the passenger.
Generally, the passenger cannot demand a refund if he or she has used the ticket verifiably beyond the point where the passenger could have cancelled the trip without incurring any fees or charges. For example, if a flight was supposed to leave on Monday but didn't because of bad weather, there's no way for the airline to give you a refund for Sunday or Monday.
Yes and no, in a nutshell. The United States Department of Transportation mandates all airlines to hold or refund tickets within 24 hours if purchased at least seven days before the flight date. If you need to change or cancel your trip after booking, any fees applied to your credit card may be charged.
The only time a ticket cannot be cancelled is if it has been paid for in full. Any discounts or promotions associated with the ticket also cannot be applied to a refund request.
In other words, if you want to guarantee yourself a spot on the plane, pay now. However, if you would like to consider another option, there are several programs available through various charities and service clubs that offer free flights every year. You can find out more about these programs later in this article.
If you cancel online or inform us within 24 hours of your purchase, you will receive a full refund, provided the scheduled time of departure was at least one week (168 hours) out at the time of booking. Tickets purchased after 24 hours are non-refundable. If you need to make changes to your booking, see our policy on that matter.

Allegiant Air offers a 100% Money Back Guarantee if you are not satisfied with your flight experience. This means that if you are unhappy with your flight, you can get a refund of the ticket price. However, if you are happy with your flight experience and decide you want to keep the ticket, there is no way to get money back.
The guarantee applies to all bookings made on allegiantair.com and through its call center. It does not apply to bookings made with third-party sites such as Expedia, Travelocity, or Priceline.
In order to be eligible for a refund, you must file an online claim form within 30 days of receiving your ticket.
Flights may always be canceled within 24 hours after booking. You can also alter your flight without penalty, however a fare adjustment fee may apply. It's worth noting that American Airlines circumvents this requirement by allowing you to "hold" a ticket for 24 hours before paying for it. If your flight is not cancelled within 24 hours, you will be charged for the full price of the ticket.
If your flight has been delayed, there are several things you should know: delays cost airlines money so they will usually try to resolve the issue as soon as possible. However, if your flight is more than three hours late arriving at its destination, you should contact the airline directly. Most have a 24-hour cancellation policy and will usually try to find another flight or offer you a refund if one is available.
In some cases, such as when a plane has been damaged in an accident, canceled flights can be difficult or impossible to reschedule. If this happens to you, call the airline directly to see what options are available.
