This product gives you the freedom to make one date change to your flight without paying any airline penalty fees. Valid up to 24 hours prior to departure of the original ticket.

How it works

  1. Add the Flexible Travel Dates product to your booking.

    The product can be added in one of three ways:

    1. On the homepage, select “More options” and choose “Flexible Travel Dates”.

    2. On the search results page, sort the results to display “Flexible Travel Dates”.

    3. On the passenger page, add the “Flexible Travel Dates” product.

  2. Submit a date change request.

    • If you (or any other passenger in the booking) need to change the date of a flight, complete the contact form here. When completing the form, select Change my booking from the drop-down menu.
    • Once your request has been submitted, an agent will contact you to confirm the details of your request and/or help you find the best alternative.
    • Note, if the price of your rebooked ticket is higher, you will be required to pay the difference in airfare and taxes between the two tickets.
  3. Receive amended flight itinerary.

Benefits
