United: is the $75 close-in award fee refundable?
I need to cancel an award ticket that I booked within the last 24 hours. Is the close-in award fee refunded along with the taxes, or is it gone?
I don’t know, actually. I would assume it would be refunded, but I’ve never tried.
Thanks Tiffany. I tweeted United. If I hear back, I’ll post an update.
United’s response: “Yes, as long as you are within the 24 hour risk-free policy, everything will be refunded.”
And next time don’t pay the fee. Use this tip, AFAIK it still works.
