Spirit Airlines Cancellation Policy

What is Spirit Airlines' Cancellation Policy?

Find out how to cancel your Spirit Airlines flight and receive a full refund through Alternative Airlines!

With Spirit Airlines, you are entitled to a full refund if you cancel your flight within 24 hours of when you first made your booking and at least 7 days before the scheduled departure date. If you want to cancel your Spirit Airlines flight but the 24-hour window has elapsed, you won't receive a refund and you may need to pay a cancellation fee (depending on how soon you cancel your booking). You can cancel your Spirit Airlines booking made through Alternative Airlines and still receive a full refund as long as you contact us during our operating hours and within the 24-hour cancellation window.

It is important that you contact us during our opening hours if you wish to cancel your Spirit Airlines flight in the 24-hour cancellation window and receive a full refund. If you attempt to contact us outside of our operating hours and the 24-hour window has already expired by the time we receive your request, we may not be able to honour Spirit's 24-hour cancellation policy as the airline won't issue the refund to us.

Please contact us between 9am - 8pm UK time (GMT) if you wish to cancel your Spirit Airlines booking within the 24-hour cancellation window and receive a refund.

Cancel Booking

Can I get a refund for my Spirit Airlines cancellation?

Absolutely, but you'll need to cancel your Spirit booking within the 24-hour cancellation period starting from the time of booking. Please contact us during our operating hours (9am - 8pm GMT) and within the 24-hour cancellation window if you wish to cancel your Spirit Airlines flight and receive a full refund.

Contacting us outside of our opening hours to cancel your flight means we might not receive your cancellation/refund request until after the 24-hour window has expired - in this case, we won't be able to issue you your refund.

Cancellation Protection features

Cancellation Protection with Spirit Airlines

Did you know that you can still receive a full refund if you need to cancel your flight due to emergency reasons? Here at Alternative Airlines, we offer Cancellation Protection which is a service that gives you the eligibility for a full refund if you need to cancel your Spirit Airlines booking due to emergency circumstances such as the death of an immediate family member, government travel bans, illness or injury, home emergencies and many more.

Adding Cancellation Protection to your Spirit Airlines booking is simple - all you need to do is pay a small percentage of the cost of your ticket as an additional fee. You'll get peace of mind knowing your money is protected should any of these emergency circumstances cause disruptions to your flight.

Spirit Airlines Cancellation Policy FAQs

What is the Cancellation Policy for Spirit Airlines?

With Spirit Airlines, you can receive a full refund for your tickets if you cancel your booking within 24 hours from when you first made the booking. After the 24-hour period has expired, you won't be eligible for a full refund. You can still cancel your Spirit Airlines flights, however, there are cancellation fees. Cancelling your Spirit flights 60 days or more from the departure date is free. Cancelling your Spirit flights 7-59 days before departure will cost you $49 USD in cancellation fees. This fee increases to $99 USD if you cancel 0-6 days before departure.

If you booked your Spirit Airlines flight(s) through Alternative Airlines and wish to cancel your booking, you can still receive a full refund as long as you contact us within the 24-hour cancellation window and during our operating hours (the sooner, the better). Our operating hours are 9am - 8pm GMT. Contacting us outside of these hours to cancel your Spirit Airlines booking means we may not receive your refund request before the 24-hour period has elapsed, therefore, we won't be able to give you a refund.

I've cancelled my Spirit Airlines booking - why haven't I received a refund?

If you contacted us outside of our opening hours to cancel your Spirit Airlines flight and the 24-hour window has expired by the time we received your request, we won't be able to honour the 24-hour cancellation policy and therefore we cannot process your refund. Alternative Airlines is following the airline's own cancellation policies that state customers won't be eligible for a full refund after the 24-hour cancellation window has elapsed.

Alternative Airlines is open from 9am - 8pm UK time (GMT). If the 24-hour cancellation window for your Spirit Airlines flight has expired whilst we are closed and you attempt to contact us during this time, you won't be entitled to a refund. It's important that you contact us within our operating hours to allow us time to process your cancellation/refund request and issue you your refund.

Can I buy refundable Spirit Airlines flights?

Spirit Airlines doesn't currently offer refundable tickets - this is so that it can keep prices low for all customers. To get a full refund, you'll need to cancel your Spirit Airlines flight within the 24-hour window that starts from the time of booking. You can also receive a full refund if you added Cancellation Protection to your booking and need to cancel your flight due to emergency circumstances.
