Inside travel for U.S. military and federal government personnel
Federal government YCA, -CA and DG fare policy
United Airlines strictly enforces rules regarding the correct form of payment for federal government contract YCA, -CA and DG fares. We will only accept authorized, U.S. government-issued Visa and MasterCard accounts as payment, and only employees of the federal government traveling on official business are eligible for these fares. Government contractors of any kind do not qualify for federal government fares.
Travel agents should ensure that proper government ID is presented and the appropriate U.S. government-issued Visa or MasterCard is used when booking government contract or DG fares. Improper issuance of these fares will result in a non-waivable debit memo for the difference of the contract or DG fare and the applicable unrestricted airfare. Non-waivable debit memos cannot be paid using federal government-authorized credit cards.
Military leisure fare policy
These fares are for U.S. military personnel and their eligible family members who are traveling on leave. Military personnel and eligible dependents must have a valid ID and must use personal credit cards for payment. Authorized federal government credit cards will not be accepted for payment of military leisure fares.
