Change or Cancel Overview


We understand that your plans may change. We have simplified travel by eliminating change fees for tickets originating from the United States, Canada and the Caribbean to anywhere in the world (excluding Basic Economy tickets). This means you have the flexibility to change the date, time or location of your trip prior to departure.

For tickets originating outside of the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean, change and cancel fees may apply depending on your point of origin and type of ticket. If you change your ticket, sometimes your new flight costs more than your original flight. If this happens, you will need to pay the difference in price.

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.

Basic Economy tickets cannot be changed in most cases; however, you may be able to cancel minus a cancellation fee as outlined below, and apply the remaining value, issued as an eCredit, toward a future Delta ticket.

Temporary Vendor Tech Issue Impacts Flights and Trip Management

Delta teams are working quickly to resolve disruptions related to an earlier vendor technology issue. You can continue to manage your itinerary on delta.com via My Trips and the Fly Delta app but may experience delays. Visit the Delayed & Canceled Flights page for details on rebooking and refund options.

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 “Nonrefundable,” your ticket may be a refundable ticket.

Don’t forget to protect your trip with Trip Protection. Learn more about what is covered.
