Southwest has long been one of the most generous airlines when it comes to changing or canceling a reservation that you’ve already booked. There are no fees for changing or canceling a flight. Period.
As long as you change or cancel your reservation more than 10 minutes before departure, Southwest will issue a travel voucher good for one year from the date you made your initial reservation.
How To Save Money After You’ve Booked Your Flight
An added benefit of this policy is that, if the price of your flight drops after you’ve booked your ticket, you are eligible to obtain a voucher for the difference in price.
The challenge is that airline fares can fluctuate very quickly–and you need to know about this new, lower fare before someone else books it.
That’s where FareDropped comes in.
How FareDropped Saves You Money
FareDropped actively monitors the price of the exact flight that you have already booked on Southwest.
When the airline changes the price of your exact flight to an amount lower than the price you paid, FareDropped automatically swoops in and gets the better price for you.
And your airline delivers a voucher directly to you for the difference in price.
Here’s an example of how FareDropped saved Chad $150 on his flight–while he was sleeping.
You can try FareDropped for free.
Once you get a voucher and understand how FareDropped works, you’ll have the option to stick with a free plan or upgrade to a paid plan for even more savings.
