Now’s the time to book holiday travel!  If you were waiting to book your holiday travel, or need to squeeze in a few more Companion Pass trips before the end of the year, now is the time to do it.

Southwest tends to open their schedule in blocks every few months.  Before today, passengers were able to book flights through November 2nd, but had to wait to book any holiday travel for this year.

The Best Reason to Fly Southwest

The best part about booking Southwest flights is their super flexible cancellation policy.  If you pay your flight and need to cancel, you can get the full amount back as a credit, good for a future flight.  Plus, it’s super easy to cancel! If you just need to change the flight, you can also easily pick a new flight online.  If the new flight is cheaper, they’ll give you a voucher for the difference, and if it’s more expensive, you simply pay the additional cost.  There’s one catch to these vouchers – they expire after 12 months, so make sure you use them!

If you’re cancelling or changing a flight you booked with points, it’s even easier!  The points go right back into your account, ready for immediate use.

Get out there and book your next LUV flight!
