    Accepted answer
    You can cancel a reservation online at, center of page VIEW RESERVATION, enter passenger last name and confirmation number. That takes you to a page with several options including CANCEL. You probably will not get a refund of a non refundable ticket, but you will have one year from date of purchase to change dates and even destinations.

    Let me know if you need more information and I will be glad to assist further.

    Hi Mike 2 ways, one either call UA 1-800-United1, and a agent will cancel itinerary and explain terms of ticket and validity, or view reservation by confirmation # and last name, on home page of, and once travel plan displayed it has a link a icon that allows you to cancel online! Take care, I hope this was helpful

    This expert is helping you out because there weren't many active United Airlines experts.

    You can easily cancel by going to and click View/Change Reservation. If you purchased a full fare ticket you can apply for a refund online. If, however, you bought a non-refundable ticket you won't get a refund but may pay a penalty of approximately $150. to change it and the cost of the new airfare. It will make your ticket worth much less than what you paid for it. Only way to avoid that in the future is to purchase travel insurance.
