According to an update on the United website, higher fees will be incurred when making or changing award travel reservations with United Airlines.
- Change fee of $150 applies for changing the routing or destination of an existing ticket. (Originally $100 fee)
- $150 fee if you decide to cancel your ticket and redeposit miles. (Originally $100)
- $25 fee for booking award travel with United Reservations phone reps, such as when booking with United partners. (Originally $15)
Additionally, the "last minute travel" processing fees policy has changed. You will now pay a fee of $75 for booking within 3 weeks, or $100 for booking within 1 week of your requested departure date. Previously the airline did not penalize you for booking travel 2 weeks or more in advance.
