How to change a plane ticket

Changing a plane ticket or canceling it is not always a simple thing, as each airline has its own rules. So that no one gets lost when it comes to comparing flights, hotels and car rentals Skyscanner has created a list of the “rules of the game” of the main airlines.

And it never hurts to know on what occasions you can change the air ticket without additional cost and in what other is convenient to pay a little more at the time of booking (buying a ticket in flexible rate, for example) if you think that It’s going to have to be modified. In addition, we must consider that, if the price of the new ticket is different, it is common that you have to pay an extra. There are cases (especially when traveling with low cost airlines) where it may be cheaper to buy a new airline ticket than to change it. It may even happen that, between the supplements, the cost of the call and the payment by credit card, the final price of the change easily exceeds that of making a reservation from scratch.

Here we leave the conditions of the airlines in alphabetical order:
