Fly with flexibility
If your trip is coming up and you’re more than a day away from departure, you may be able to change your reservation with no change fees.
You can adjust your travel plans without any change fees — including for award tickets — for flights within the U.S., or for international travel originating in the U.S. This applies to most United Economy® and all premium cabin tickets. You’ll just pay the fare difference if your new flight is more expensive.
For award tickets not originating in the U.S., there won’t be a change fee as long as the ticket is changed more than 30 days before departure, but there may be a difference in the fare.
Typically, Basic Economy tickets are non-changeable, except when you’d like to stand by for an earlier flight. However, with our current travel waiver, you can change Basic Economy tickets that are issued by March 31, 2021, without change fees. Learn more
