You can also cancel flights at an easyJet Help Desk at most airports – but this must be under two hours before take-off.

If your flight is cancelled due to a coronavirus travel ban or the Foreign Office advises against travel to your destination, you will be fully refunded.

But if you choose not to fly due to personal safety concerns and the flight does go ahead, you are not entitled to your money back.

How much does it cost to cancel an easyJet flight?

If you cancel within 24 hours of booking you will receive a refund minus the cancellation fee, which is £49 online and £55 over the phone.

How far in advance do you have to cancel?

After 24 hours of booking, easyJet flights are non-refundable.

But if a serious illness or family bereavement causes you to cancel, contact customer services.

They may remove the fee and offer a flight voucher to use within six months. You may be required to provide proof, such as a death certificate.

Will I get my money back if I cancel my flight?

If a refund is due, the company says it will refund the card the booking was made under.

This should arrive in three to four days, but can take 28 days. You are advised to contact easyJet if it takes longer and you have 12 months to request a refund.

If you do not fly for any reason, you are entitled to money back from government flight taxes.

From the UK, these are £13 per flight for over-16s on all routes – except for Egypt, Jordan and Israel which is £80.
