My Experience with Delta Airlines
I am a travel vlogger and because of my profession, I need to travel to different places for the content. I chose this field because traveling and exploring are very therapeutic to me and until now I have explored 8 countries in 3 years Delta Airlines.
My next trip was to Italy as my viewers wanted me to explore it and post relevant content on the channel. As I have made it to so many countries I have gained the knowledge of efficient packing and relevant reservations.
Until now I have taken 3 flights with Delta Airlines and among all, they were the best. This time I made sure to fly with delta only as the service provided is quite good.
I made Delta Airlines reservations for my journey and started arranging essentials for the trip. I made the reservation three months prior to the date to avoid last-minute price hike in the tickets.
I was all excited about my trip but then I got to know that my mother was very ill. I live away from my parents so I thought of visiting her and once I reached there I came to know that she had to go through a Kidney transplant.
The procedure was long and she will have to be taken care of. There were two months for my trip and I figured out that it was best to cancel the trip and take care of my mother.
Though I flew with Delta Airlines earlier, I was unaware of the Delta Cancellation Policy. I went to the official website of Delta Airlines and made a selection on the Delta Cancellation Policy tab and started going through the rules and guidelines of the policy.
I got the following information on the Delta Cancellation Policy page.
Delta Airlines 24 Hour Cancellation Policy
Delta Cancellation Policy states that the airline obeys the US department rules. It was mentioned that the passengers who are canceling their reservations made with Delta Airlines within the first 24 hours of the purchase will not have to pay any cancellation fee.
The brownie point is that the type of purchase does not matter under these criteria as any passenger who cancels the ticket within 24 hours will get a full refund without any penalty.
But it was also mentioned that the passengers must also beware that the cancellation must be made at least seven days before the departure otherwise the rule will not imply.
It is a great rule for the passengers who are not confident about their trip and wish to make any changes within 24 hours but unfortunately I was not one of them.
Delta Airline Cancellation Fee
The cancellation charges applied by Delta Airline is as follows:
• If the cancellation is being executed within the 24 hours of purchase then zero fees are applied and a full refund is delivered regardless of the fare type purchased.
• The cancellation fee can be anywhere between $200 and $500 if the cancellation is made beyond the stipulated time frame of 24 hours regardless of the type of fare purchased.
• The cancellation fee can be anywhere between $200 and $500 if the cancellation is made within 24 hours of the departure of the flight.
Guidelines for the Non-Refundable Tickets
There are different types of fares available on the official website of Delta Airlines which consists of both refundable and nonrefundable types.
The passengers who go for the nonrefundable type of fare are eligible for canceling the ticket either online on the website itself or by contacting the customer service which is available 24×7.
If there is a genuine reason and the passenger is able to provide official documents then there are chances that the airline may be able to provide a refund on the respective account of the passenger that was used to make the booking.
Guidelines for the Refundable Tickets
The Delta Cancellation Policy offers maximum flexibility to its passengers by giving them the facility to get a refund after booking refundable tickets on the website. Once the claim has been applied the refund will be initiated within 10 business days.
How to cancel the Delta Airlines booking?
• Go to the official website
• Tap on My booking or My trip selection on the home page
• Select the reservation that needs to be canceled
• Hit on the cancel button
• Congratulations your reservation will be canceled officially and the remaining balance will be credited into the account with which you made the reservations on the site.
I got a refund in 7 business days and I was happy with the service provided by Delta Airlines. My mother will be all good in 3 to 4 months and then hopefully I will plan a trip to Italy and help my views with some relevant content.
In case you are also facing some issues and wish to cancel your Delta Airlines reservations then you can visit the official website for the same.
