Make a change

Impact of Covid-19

If your travel plans have been impacted by Covid-19 please look at our flexible rebooking polices as these give you additional options above our normal polices

If you booked direct and you need to make a change to your booking, send us a message or give us a call. 

For bookings made with another website or travel agent, you'll need to go through them. You'll find contact options below, including Virgin Holidays.

Changing the date or time of your flight

  • Economy Light bookings are completely non changeable (apart from for flights during March 2020).
  • There’s usually a fee to change your flight date or time, which varies depending on your ticket and the type of amendment.

Change fees

To give you an idea, if you booked direct the minimum fee is around £150 per person for flights departing the UK, or £30 per person plus any difference in taxes if you bought your flight with Flying Club miles (not applicable to upgrades). Fees may vary for indirect bookings.

New flights will be subject to today's availability and prices.

Changing the name on your ticket

  • You can’t transfer your ticket to another person, so if someone else is flying, they’ll need to buy a new ticket.

  • For small name changes (like if you've legally changed your name, or there’s a spelling mistake in your name on your ticket) we’ll change that for free.

  • It’s common to see your first name and last name the wrong way round, joined together or incomplete on your booking/ticket. Don’t worry, this often happens if you book through a third party or travel agent and won’t cause you any problems at check in or boarding.
