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!

I’ve written that the Barclays US Airways card will be discontinued once the merger between American Airlines and US Airways is complete.

This means this card will be eventually phased out.  I don’t know the exact date it will be unavailable, but it will be unavailable at some point!

And by next year, the 2 airlines will almost be completely merged.

How to Book Barclays US Airways Companion Certificate Tickets

Disclosure: Emily & I get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do.

I’ve written about the changes coming to the Barclays US Airways card and how some of its benefits are changing.  One major change is the discontinuation of the annual Companion Certificate that comes with the card at the end of 2014.

The certificate lets you bring up to 2 companions with you on US Airways operated flights for $99 plus taxes and fees, as long as you’ve paid at least $250 for your round-trip ticket.  You can use it to fly coach within the US (not including Hawaii and Alaska) and Canada.

Emily recently applied for the Barclays US Airways card and received her Companion Certificate in the mail.  There’s a lot of fine print and some tricks to booking with it, but I’ll show you how!
