Can you change the return date on a round trip plane ticket?


Have a reservation with Southwest and was wondering how easy/difficult/expensive it is would be to change the return date by a day


anyone ever did this?

You can change the date, but it'll cost ya. I think I paid $50 for the change but that was 10 years ago.

Call the airline they usually help but it will probably cost you.

All airlines policies are different. Always can change for a fee. Some fees are reasonable, some are definitely not!

It also depends on whether you went through places like priceline as well.

many times, but never on SW. with Delta/Northwest you can change only after paying a fee.

Doubt he went through priceline, b/c it is a Southwest ticket.

Depending on the difference in the price b/w the flights and the revision to your ticket, you are likely looking at fees around $75 or greater.

I did this with a SW flight before and it cost me over $150. Don't recall the exact cost though.

I'd go ahead and tell them you with the Po-lice and see if that helps.

From their website -

quote:

Let’s face it, plans change. While other airlines may charge you an extra fee for simply changing your flight, we provide you with more flexibility. Of course, when you rebook a flight with us, your new trip may still cost more. However, the great thing about our Anytime and Business Select fares is that you have the freedom to change to another flight on your original date of travel at no additional cost. After all, with our frequent flights and convenient schedule, the flexibility to change can be a great thing!

Southwest just charges the difference in price between the flights, you can change it on their website.

See how much a one way ticket is on Southwest the day you want to come back. I think they're running their $49 and $99 sale again.
