No change fees on new tickets with select airlines

Are you ready to book a flight, but want extra flexibility in case your plans change? You are in luck! These airline partners below are waiving change fees for new tickets purchased in June. This additional flexibility will save the typical change fees of $200-$400 that airlines normally charge if you need to switch travel dates. You will only have to pay the fare difference if your new airline fare costs more than your original fare. 

 

Airline policies are being updated frequently, so be sure to review the complete terms & conditions for each airline by clicking on the links below. Contact an STA Travel Expert for help with all of your flexible travel needs!

What you can do and what to expect

Following the rules

While on the road and at the airport, you may be asked to take extra precautions. For example, to wear a mask on an aircraft or on public transport, or to take a COVID-19 test at a border crossing. Please do not be offended. Respecting these local laws will help to keep you safe. Plus, it is this collective effort that is allowing us to start to travel and explore the world again.

Staying in good health

Just as at home, there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 when you are abroad. We ask all our travelers to be responsible, and only travel if you are in good health. The World Health Organization (WHO) has advised that people over a certain age or those with underlying conditions may be at a greater risk, so please follow medical advice before travelling.

Taking responsibility

In these changed times, we all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and each other safe. We ask all our travelers to adhere to the personal hygiene practices recommended by government health authorities and the WHO. For example, guidance on hand washing, the use of hand sanitizer, and ensuring that you carry enough face masks and gloves for your trip.
