What are Flexible Tickets?
To provide greater flexibility, some domestic airlines are waiving change fees and offering travel credits for future use in the case of cancellation for new bookings.
These flexible policies vary between airlines and are only available on selected dates. They are labelled as "Flexible Ticket" in our search results for your convenience.
With these flexible policies in place, you can now plan and book with confidence.
Here's our guide to domestic airlines offering flexible tickets:
