Allegiant Airlines Cancellation Policy

Cancelling a flight you were looking forward to can be a pain, especially because you may have to pay extra for doing so. If you find yourself in a situation that calls for cancelling your booking with Allegiant, it pays to understand the Allegiant flight cancellation policy so that you can save yourself time and money. 

Allegiant Cancellation Policy Due to COVID-19

Allegiant’s cancellation policy in response to the COVID-19 pandemic is as follows: 

  • Non-Trip Flex Tickets
    • If you purchased your ticket (without Trip Flex travel protection) before 11.59pm on April 30, 2021, you’re allowed to cancel your booking without penalty. After you cancel your ticket, you’ll receive an Allegiant Credit Voucher worth the value of the ticket for future travel—but you won’t get a refund. 
    • If you purchased your ticket (without Trip Flex travel protection) after 12:00am on May 1, 2021, you’ll be allowed to cancel your flight for a temporarily reduced fee of USD 25/passenger/segment. After cancelling your ticket, you’ll receive an Allegiant Credit Voucher—but not a refund. 
  • Trip Flex Tickets
    • No cancellation fees will apply to any flight ticket that includes the Trip Flex travel protection. 
    • You can use your Trip Flex to cancel your ticket only once. 
    • If you cancel within 24 hours by phone through Customer Care, you will be issued a refund. However, if you cancel online, you will be issued an Allegiant Credit voucher. 

Note 

  • Allegiant Credit Vouchers issued before April 10, 2020, are valid for 1 year (365 days) from the original date of booking. Credit Vouchers issued after April 10, 2020, are valid for 2 years (730 days) from the original date of booking. 
  • All Credit Vouchers are non-refundable and non-transferrable. 
  • For other options, contact Allegiant’s Customer Care Center (+1-702-505-8888).

Allegiant Cancellation Policy—Tickets Purchased with Cash or Points

  • Allegiant Air 24-Hour Cancellation Policy
    You can cancel any flight booking within 24 hours and get a full refund—if you booked your flight at least 7 days before departure. Allegiant’s 24-hour cancellation policy applies to all types of tickets.
  • Allegiant Cancellation Policy for Standard Tickets
    If you cancel a standard (non-Trip Flex) ticket after 24 hours of purchasing it:
    • You will be charged a reduced cancellation fee of USD 25 (normally USD 75) per passenger per segment till the COVID-19 relaxations last.
    • You will be issued a non-refundable Allegiant Travel Credit minus the applicable cancellation fee for the balance amount due. 

  • Note. If you no-show for a flight on a standard ticket or cancel within 7 days of departure, you will not be issued any travel credit.
  • Allegiant Cancellation Policy with Trip Flex
    The Allegiant Air cancellation policy with Trip Flex add-ons allows you to cancel any ticket within 24 hours of purchase without being charged a cancellation fee. After 24 hours, Trip Flex allows you to make a one-time change to your flight’s date and/or destination—up to 1 hour before departure—with zero cancellation fee (but within certain guidelines). You will be issued a non-refundable credit for future travel on Allegiant.

    Remember, you can only purchase Trip Flex (USD 8 – 20, depending on your route) at the time of booking. You cannot add it later.

Tip. Cancelling a ticket without penalty does not make it non-refundable. If you cancel your flight with the Trip Flex add-on, the credit balance cannot be refunded—it can only be applied toward future travel on Allegiant.

  • Allegiant Cancellation Policy for Award Tickets
    The Allegiant cancellation policy allows you to cancel an award ticket along the same fee structure as tickets purchased with cash. 
    • If you purchase the Trip Flex add-on with your award ticket, you will not be charged any fee to change or cancel your award ticket.
    • If you purchase a standard (non-Trip Flex) ticket and change or cancel it, you will be charged a USD 25 fee (normally USD 75) per passenger per ticket till the COVID-19 relaxations last.
    • If you purchase your flight ticket with points and change or cancel it, your points will not be credited back to your account, but you will receive a credit voucher for the itinerary and use it later.
  • Allegiant Weather Cancellation Policy

If your flight is cancelled or rescheduled to another day due to bad weather, Allegiant’s weather cancellation policy allows you to exercise any of these options:

  • Travel on the rescheduled flight.
