Finding out that you need to cancel the flight you were looking forward to can really cause quite a headache, especially when you realize that you may need to pay extra fees to do so!

If you find yourself in a situation where you need to cancel your flight with Allegiant Airlines, it’s important to have a good understanding of their cancellation policy so that you can save yourself both time and money!

Allegiant’s Cancellation Policy: Flights Paid With Cash or Points

All tickets may be canceled for a full refund up to 24 hours after the time of purchase with no cancellation fees.

Standard Tickets

If you need to cancel your reservation with Allegiant, and it has been more than 24 hours since you booked your ticket, you will be charged a fee of $75 per passenger, per segment. Afterward, a credit will be issued minus the $75 cancellation fee. The remaining funds will be applied as non-refundable credit good for future travel with Allegiant.

No credit will be issued for no-shows or cancellations made within 7 days of flight departure. 

Trip Flex

All tickets may be canceled for a full refund up to 24 hours after the time of purchase with no cancellation fees. If you’ve passed the 24 hour window, Trip Flex lets you make a one-time change to the date, flight or destination of your reservation, within certain guidelines, with no change fees or cancellation fees!

Keep in mind that Trip Flex may only be purchased at the time of booking, so you cannot add it to an existing reservation. The cost to add Trip Flex to your reservation is anywhere between $8 to $20 per person, per segment, depending on your routing.

With Trip Flex, you can change your itinerary once or even postpone your trip without paying change/cancellation fees of $75 each way per passenger. You will be responsible for any change in the price of airfare but your change fees will be waived. Passengers with Trip Flex tickets can modify their itinerary once, up to 1 hour prior to departure for airline ticket purchases, and up to 72 hours prior to departure for air/hotel package purchases.

Hot Tip: While you can cancel or change your flight without any fees, it is important to note that your flight is still non-refundable. This means if you cancel your flight, the funds of your original ticket will be applied as non-refundable credit good for future travel with Allegiant.

Award Ticket

Canceling an award ticket follows the same fee structure as cash tickets. If you’ve purchased Trip Flex with your award ticket then you will not be charged a fee to change or cancel your award ticket, otherwise, you must pay $75 per passenger, per segment.

However, if you booked your flight with points and decide that you need to cancel, unfortunately, you will not receive those points back. Instead of having those points redeposited in your account, you will receive a credit voucher issued for the reward itinerary value.

How to Cancel an Allegiant Ticket

Step 1: Log into your account on Allegiant’s homepage and select “Manage Travel”.

Step 2: Once you’ve selected the trip you want to cancel, select “Cancel Booking.”

Step 3: The next screen will ask you to confirm that you want to cancel your booking. After you click confirm then your booking will officially be canceled, and you’ll receive a voucher for any remaining funds after any potential cancellation fees.

How to Use an Allegiant Flight Voucher

If you have a flight voucher from a previous flight that you would like to use, first start a new booking on the Allegiant website. Once you’ve found the flight you want to book and reach the payment screen, click the dropbox and enter your voucher number.

A few helpful things to keep in mind with your Allegiant voucher:

  • Vouchers are not redeemable for cash.
  • If you only use part of your Allegiant voucher on a flight, you will be able to use the remaining credit voucher amount towards a new flight as long as travel is completed 1 year from the original itinerary booking date.
  • Vouchers are non-transferable and may only be redeemed in the name of the passenger to whom they were issued.
  • Vouchers can be used to cover both flights and any associated baggage fees.

Final Thoughts

If you’re booking a flight with Allegiant and are worried that you may need to cancel your flight, or just want the peace of mind to know that you can, purchasing a Trip Flex ticket will definitely be your best option.

When it comes to trip planning it’s helpful to know before you go, so that if problems arise you can save yourself a significant amount of time, stress, and money.
