If there’s been one common complaint among travelers who fly, it’s the exuberant change fees charged by airlines if a flight change is needed. This extra cost was burdensome for customers, especially leisure travelers, but equaled billions in profits for airlines.

When Covid-19 hit the scene, it all but shut down air travel worldwide and airlines started temporarily waiving change fees to entice people to book flights. As restrictions loosened, there was an increase in flights, but that soon stalled mid-summer as passengers, the bulk of which are currently leisure travelers, became leery of making advance flights again. This motivated United Airlines to do away with the majority of their change fees permanently—and other major airlines followed suit.

Scott Kirby, CEO of United said, “When we hear from customers about where we can improve, getting rid of this fee is often the top request. Following previous tough times, airlines made difficult decisions to survive, sometimes at the expense of customer service. United Airlines won’t be following that same playbook as we come out of this crisis.”

Considering Southwest has never charged a change fee and the major four US airlines are also dropping the unpopular fees, we will likely see smaller airlines adopt this policy as well.

With businesses coming to the realization that travel isn’t as big a necessity as once thought—largely thanks to technology and human adaptability—leisure travel is more important to airlines than ever before. This gives passengers unprecedented power when it comes to booking flights.

So, if you’ve been hesitant to book a trip, don’t be! Plan the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. If you’re looking to take an organized tour, check out our offerings at Blue Rim Tours. We have 2021 U.S. and international tours available, and we’re temporarily waiving our deposits until all tours can be confirmed. But if you’re interested you still need to reserve your spot.

Life happens. Plans change. And now you can book flights without being penalized if something prevents you from taking your trip as scheduled.
