- Passengers are required to pay 119 USD if they cancel tickets within two weeks before departure. The Frontier cancellation fee directly depends on the date of the cancellation from the departure date.
- If the passenger cancels tickets several days in advance from the departure date, the airline will charge less even if the passenger does not have the bundle plan.

How to Cancel a Frontier Ticket Online
- Step 1: Log into your account on Frontier’s homepage and select “My Trips” or “Bookings.”
- Step 2: Once you’ve selected the trip you want to cancel, select “Cancel Booking.”
- Step 3: The next screen will ask you to confirm that you want to cancel your booking. After you click confirm then your booking will officially be canceled.
- Step 4: Finally, if you’re canceling your ticket and purchased the WORKS bundle, you have to request to receive your refund through an online refund request form. Don’t forget to do this as you will not receive your refund without filling out the form!
Changing to a different flight on the same day?
Frontier airlines offer a “Same Day Confirmed” alternative flight option for a flat fee of $59. This is offered at no additional charge for Frontier Miles Elite members, or for those who purchased the WORKS add-on.
How to Use Frontier Flight Credit
If you have a Frontier credit that you need to use, start booking a new flight on the Frontier website. Find the flight you want to book and reach the payment screen; select “HAVE FRONTIER CREDIT” and enter the six-digit confirmation code for your credit (this will be the confirmation code from the original booking).
Few helpful things to keep in mind with your Frontier credits:
Credits are not redeemable for cash.
- Credits from a reservation that purchased the WORKS expire 1 year from the date of issue.
- Credits are 1-time use, meaning there will be no remaining value after redemption. This means if you use a $120 credit to purchase a $100 flight, you cannot use the remaining $20 towards a future flight.
- Credits are non-transferable and may only be redeemed in the name of the passenger to whom it was issued.
