If You Hate OTA Cancellation Fees—Follow These Risk Free Tips

If you make an airline reservation with Priceline, for example, you can cancel as late at 11:29 PM Eastern Time the next day.

The most liberal cancellation policy is offered by Southwest Airlines, which does not charge a penalty fee for timely cancellations.

Every airline, and every Online Ticket Agency (OTA), has its own rules. Award tickets follow their own set of rules, and passengers with status may have more time to cancel than others.
