Miles and points enthusiasts are usually meticulous in planning their travels, but sometimes life gets in the way and we have to change our plans or cancel altogether.

Or other times folks might jump on a low or mistake fare and realize afterwards that it doesn’t work for their schedule.

If you need to change your plans, airlines and online travel agencies (OTAs) like Orbitz, Expedia, and Priceline all have different cancellation policies.  And with airlines, fare rules can be rather complicated.   So here’s a rundown of what to expect when you cancel a ticket!

A common opinion held by many miles-and-points enthusiasts is that Delta’s frequent flyer miles (often jokingly referred to as SkyPesos) can be hard to use.

Folks complain about a lack of available low-level award seats, a website that doesn’t always give accurate information, and very high pricing on some routes, especially international award tickets.

But is this always true?  I did some searches for award seats on Delta and then searched for the same dates and routes on American Airlines and United Airlines.  The results might surprise you!
