We’ve recently received a few questions regarding Priceline‘s risk free 24 hour cancellation policy. Priceline, unlike Orbitz and Expedia, does not explicitly cite a policy during the purchase process. While not noted, they do have a cancellation policy.

Priceline allows cancellations until 11:29PM Eastern the next business day. If you buy on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, you actually have until MONDAY at 11:29PM Eastern to cancel. This cancellation policy does not apply to Priceline’s Name Your Own Price Airfares. We do not post any Name Your Own Price deals. So every deal we post will qualify for the 24 hour risk free cancellation policy.

Here are step by step instructions on how to cancel:

Step 1 – Login into your account or if you do not have an account, look in your confirmation email for the cancellation link.

Step 4 – Cancellation Timing and Cancel

We bought this particular itinerary today, Friday, February 19th. As you can see with the next BUSINESS day policy, we actually have until Monday, February 22nd at 11:29PM Eastern to cancel.

Step 5 – Cancellation Confirmation

Do note that the risk free 24 hour cancellation policy does not apply to Spirit or Frontier. For those two, you have to call them after booking for the exact cancellation policy. There you have it—Priceline DOES have a risk free cancellation policy so do what we do—buy, and then plan!

    Does this apply to non-US carriers too and international flights? Also can this post be filed under “Travel Tips” to find it quickly if need be? Thanks so much.

      @Fatin – if the flight originate or returns to the US, US Department of Transportation regulations says 24 hour risk free cancellation regardless of carrier. So Non-US carriers have to abide by it if the flight departs or returns to the US.

      @airell – welcome. every deal post includes the following key pieces of information:

      1) Fare Availability – this is the timeframe when the fare is availability. That does not mean that it is available every day during that timeframe.

      2) How to Search for Availability – this is instructions on how to use ITA Matrix to search for availability within that timeframe. We believe that ITA Matrix is the best fare search out there

      3) How to Buy. This is instructions on how to buy.

      Hope that helps.
