Delta's 24-hour risk-free cancellation period allows you to cancel any Delta flight within 24 hours of your booking on Delta.com or the Fly Delta app. This includes Basic Economy fares, which typically are nonrefundable in most other circumstances.

If you cancel within the 24-hour window, you'll receive a full refund with no fees attached. You can cancel your flight on Delta's website or app at any time within this 24-hour period in just a few clicks. The cancellation request must be made by midnight of the day following purchase or midnight prior to the day of travel, whichever comes first.

Passengers who have a refundable ticket may apply for a refund if their travel plans change. Simply apply for a refund through Delta's online form and payment will be refunded to the original form of payment. Additionally, you can request a refund of unused trip purchases, like Sky Priority Boarding, a Wi-Fi pass, or other amenities. You can check the status of your refund online or by calling (800) 847-0578.

Basic Economy tickets are appealing to some travelers because of their lower prices, but there are restrictions on changing or canceling a flight with these tickets. While you can cancel during the 24-hour risk-free cancellation period, any other cancellations incur a $99 to $199 cancellation charge that is deducted from the price of your ticket. Refunds are received as an eCredit toward a future Delta flight.

Delta does not allow any changes to Basic Economy tickets after the 24-hour risk-free cancellation window. During that window, if you change your flight, you'll have to pay the difference.

If you need to change or cancel a non-refundable ticket, a cancellation fee may be deducted from the cost of your flight. The remaining portion of the refund is issued as an eCredit that can be used for a future Delta flight.

Delta does not charge cancellation fees for the main cabin and above tickets within the U.S., Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands purchased after Aug. 31, 2020. Main cabin and above tickets purchased after Dec. 9, 2020, and originating from North America to anywhere in the world also do not have cancellation fees. Additionally, change or cancellation fees do not apply to main cabin and above tickets between the Caribbean and the U.S. or Mexico.

If your ticket does not qualify for a waiver, change or cancellation fees start at $99, depending on your itinerary. The remaining balance is issued as an eCredit.

Delta SkyMiles award tickets have similar change and cancellation terms as cash fares, but there's a bit more flexibility. Since you're paying with SkyMiles rather than with cash, you're able to get your miles back in most cases. All eligible award tickets incur no change and cancellation fees.

If canceling your flight, your SkyMiles will be redeposited into your account. The only exception is for basic economy tickets, which cannot be changed at any time after the 24-hour risk-free cancellation period.

Basic Economy award tickets can be canceled minus a cancellation fee in miles that is deducted from the price of your tickets. Cancellation fees for travel within the U.S. or to Canada, Mexico, Central America, or the Caribbean is 9,900 miles. Long-haul international travel is charged a fee of 19,900 miles.

Finally, Delta has eliminated its 72-hour change and cancellation window. Now, you can cancel or change your award ticket at any time leading up to your flight.

How to avoid Delta change and cancellation fees

While Delta has largely updated its change fee policy, fees still apply in some scenarios. As a reminder, here are some ways you can avoid Delta change and cancellation fees when booking your next flight:

  • Cancel within Delta's 24-hour risk-free cancellation period. In fact, all airlines are subject to this rule as administered by the Department of Transportation. You can cancel your ticket within 24 hours of purchasing it without penalty.
  • Purchase a refundable fare. When searching for fares on Delta's website, click "Refundable" to see a list of fares that are refundable for any reason. While these fares will cost you much more than nonrefundable tickets, they won't incur any change or cancellation fees. In some cases, change fees can cost more than the airfare itself.
  • Watch out for schedule changes. As airline demand has changed dramatically over the past year, your flight may be rescheduled or even canceled. In the event of either happening, you may be eligible for a complimentary flight change or cancellation. You'll receive an email with options to change or cancel your flight when this occurs. For tickets issued after Aug. 17, 2020, the following situations qualify for waived fees:
    • A delay of two hours or more
    • A change in the routing of the original flight that adds one or more stops
    • An equipment change from Delta Mainline to Delta Connection
    • A change that causes a misconnect, or an outright cancellation with no comparable or acceptable routing available within two hours. You'll receive an email with options to change or cancel your flight.
  • Contact Delta customer service for any extenuating circumstances. While any other reasons aren't posted on Delta's website, you should contact customer service if you need to cancel for any extenuating circumstance.
