Delta tickets normally expire one year from the date of purchase. However, for additional flexibility, all tickets expiring in 2022 and all new tickets purchased in 2022 will be able to be rebooked through December 31, 2023 for travel now through 2024. When you are ready to use your eCredit, visit delta.com/redeem or the Fly Delta app where you’ll be able to verify the existing value/expiration date information and apply the eCredit at the time of purchase.
Rest assured that we are at work updating all tickets with their extended validity later this year. As we make this update, you can continue to book tickets for travel anytime in 2022 or 2023 with your existing eCredits.
For more details about waiver eligibility and terms, visit delta.com/waivers.
Enjoy more peace of mind with no change fees when you purchase a Main Cabin or above ticket on flights originating from the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa or the Caribbean. For tickets where travel begins outside of these regions, change and cancel fees may apply depending on your origin location and type of ticket.
When changing your ticket, sometimes your new flight may cost more than your original flight. If this happens, you will need to pay the difference in price. In cases where the price of your new flight is less than the original price or if you choose to cancel your flight before departure, you will receive an eCredit for the difference between the price of your original ticket and the price of your new ticket.
As a reminder, Basic Economy tickets cannot be changed in most cases. You may cancel before departure for a cancellation charge which is deducted from the value of your ticket and the remaining value will be issued as an eCredit to use toward a future Delta ticket.
In keeping with our longstanding policy, we will first attempt to rebook you on a new flight if your current flight is canceled, significantly delayed (> 120 minutes) or impacted by a qualifying significant schedule change.
If we cannot find an alternate flight for you and we cancel your ticket, or you choose to cancel the new flight you have been rebooked on, you have the following options:
The same rules apply whether a flight is booked with cash, miles or using a Companion Certificate. For award flights that qualify for a change fee waiver, we are also waiving the mile redeposit fee.
All unused Companion Certificates as of July 31, 2021, or Companion Certificates issued between August 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021, will have the expiration date extended to book and fly by January 31, 2023. To cancel your trip and use your Companion Certificate for a future booking, please visit My Trips for your quickest service option. If you cannot complete your request in My Trips, visit the Help Center for assistance.
Face masks are no longer required inside domestic airports, on U.S. domestic flights and on most international flights.
We recommend reviewing Delta’s mask policy, which includes more information on mask usage. Please continue to bring a mask with you for international travel, because it may be required for some destinations based on their laws and requirements.
Cleaning crews perform extensive manual cleaning procedures to wipe down cabin surfaces including seats, consoles, seatback screens, windows, doors, lavatories and other high-touch areas of the cabin.

Destinations & Travel Restrictions
If you are a U.S. citizen who has reviewed all required travel documents and determined you need to receive or renew your passport ahead of international travel, please visit the U.S. Department of State’s travel website, opens in a new window to fill out the necessary forms. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time as passport processing often takes several months and could take longer during peak travel periods. Processing is often 10 weeks for routine requests and 6 weeks for expedited service.
In addition to needing a passport for international travel, some countries have also imposed temporary health-related entry requirements. To find out more about your destination's health requirements, please use our interactive map.
We want you to arrive prepared, so please visit the Delta Discover Map to learn about potential travel requirements for a trip you are planning or have booked. The information is up-to-date and personalized based on your specific circumstances. Entry and exit requirements are imposed by governments and may change before departure, so please be sure to check back close to your intended travel dates for the latest requirements.
Also, if you book an international flight, your trip may be eligible for Delta FlyReadySM which makes managing travel requirements faster and easier by guiding you through the process.

- A form of payment used includes a combination of cash and miles or an upgrade using miles or certificates
- An adult traveling with an infant in arms
- Tickets that are sold or ticketed by another airline – generally, this means your flight number will start with something other than "DL", except for SkyMiles Award Travel operated by a Delta airline partner
