    An agent would have to look at the rules of the ticket you purchased. Or you would need to check online at MANAGE RESERVATIONS:

    agent assistance:
    1800 864 8331

    In general, most refundable or non-refundable tickets can be changed for a change penalty of minimum $200 per person plus any difference in fare. There are some tickets which do not allow changes.

    NOTE: If you are changing due to an emergency situation it might be possible to have the change fee reduced to only $50 per person with documentation.

    Sure. At any time before departure. Go to and click Change Reservations to do so. There is no charge as long as you not holding a non-refundable ticket without travel insurance. In that case, the penalty for changes will cost 300 dollars for international tickets and 200 for domestic plus any difference in airfare. The sooner you do it, the better. Best of luck to you, Susan!

    Hi Susan,

    You may change your reservation but it will likely cost you unless you have an expensive changeable ticket. If you have a verifiable family emergency or an illness, it can cost $50 versus the usual fee. You can cancel your ticket and the remainder of the fare is usable for a new reservation. Here is a link that will allow you to do that:
    If you put in your confirmation # and last name, you can review what the costs are for your ticket prior to making the change.
    Best wishes!

    Hi Susan,
    Simply go to and using your last name and confirmation number or your mileage plus number pull up your current reservation. From there you can make changes and view the total cost including fare difference (if any) plus penalty (if any). From there you will have the option to complete the change or to keep your reservation as is. If you have further questions or need assistance please contact United at: 1-800-UNITED-1 (1-800-864-8331) from the U.S. and Canada
