Last updated: February 18, 2017 - 12:09pm EST

Has there been an emergency or other change of plans, and now you can't make a flight that you booked on Expedia.com? Need to cancel that flight, or at least reschedule it? Cancelling and changing flights can be a tricky process whether you booked travel on Expedia.com, or one of its popular competitors like Priceline.comHotwire.com, or Orbitz.com. But don't worry, read on to find out how to do it.

To cancel a flight on Expedia

There are two main ways to cancel a flight with Expedia. The first is by logging into your Expedia account and selecting your itinerary. Then click Cancel Flight.

The other way is by calling Expedia customer support at 1-866-310-5768 (inside the U.S.) or 1-404-728-8787 (international).

A couple of notes about cancelling your flight on Expedia:

  • If you booked it within the last 24 hours, you may be able to get a full refund.
  • Some flights cannot be refunded, as per the rules and regulations of Expedia or the airline.
  • Certain non-refundable flights may still be refunded with credit for the same airline.
  • Certain airlines must be contacted directly in order to cancel a flight.

See our Expedia Customer Service and Expedia Cancellation Policy tutorials for more information.

To change a flight on Expedia

If you need to change a flight after you've already booked it with Expedia, you'll have to call their customer support team at 1-866-310-5768 (inside the U.S.) or 1-404-728-8787 (international).

A couple of things to note about changing your flight with Expedia:

  • Your new flight must be for the same (primary) passenger(s) and on the same airline.
  • If your new flight costs more than your old one, you will have to pay the difference.
  • You may also have to pay a rebooking fee, as per the airline's rules and regulations.
  • Certain airlines must be contacted directly in order to change a flight.
