Reservations agent for Southwest Airlines, leaping over policies with a single bound. faster than a speeding...Accepted answer
The wanna get away fares are the non refundable non changeable flights. That's why fares are so low. The same thing with the web only fares. If you purchase one of these fares and you decide to cancel, you will not get a refund but instead, you will receive travel funds to be used at a later date. You have 1 year from the original date of purchase to use the funds or they will be lost. You can not use those funds for another person. Only the persons on the reservation are able to use the travel funds. also if you want to make a change to your reservation even if its for a flight earlier or later on the same day you will have to pay the difference in fare and the difference is usually what you would pay if you had just walked up and bought a ticket the same day
If you purchase the anytime fare of the business select fare, those fares are fully refundable and fully changeable at no extra cost to you, if you cancel one of these flights you have the option to get travel funds to use at a later date or to have the monies spent to be sent back to the original credit card. you also get a better boarding position with the business select fares, you will be one of the first 15 passangers on the plane and since we do not have reserved seating, you are able to sit anywhere you want.
I hope this information helps.4 comments
