CHANGE OR CANCEL

Overview


We understand that your plans may change, enjoy more peace of mind with no change fees when you purchase Main Cabin, Delta Comfort+, First Class, Delta Premium Select or Delta One on flights originating from North America. For all Delta tickets where travel begins outside of North America, we continue to offer waived change fees except for Basic Economy fares, which are not changeable.

It‘s easy to cancel, make changes or rebook your flight online prior to departure. Visit My Trips to make changes to your flight(s) any time before your travel date. Tickets not changed or canceled prior to departure will have no remaining value.

For customers who purchased a Basic Economy ticket under our COVID-19 travel waivers on or before April 30, 2021, you may make changes or may cancel your ticket and receive an eCredit*. Basic Economy fares purchased after April 30, 2021 are final, meaning these tickets are not changeable or refundable.

*Some Basic Economy tickets originating from Europe, Africa, and other international markets may be changeable for a fee. Check the ticket restrictions for details.

Understanding Changes & Refunds


Explore and understand the cost associated with changing or canceling your flight, which may vary depending on your ticket type. If your ticket is non-refundable, you will see the word ‘Nonrefundable’ next to the cabin name in My Trips. If you do not see the copy, your ticket may be a refundable (FLEX) ticket. Please note that Basic Economy fare is Non-refundable and Non-changeable.
