It is usually possible to change your travel date, but specific conditions and fees may apply. A notable example is that airlines often expand date change options, albeit with change fees and fare spreads.

Scrutinizing the words of your ticket, along with the airline or agency’s policies, is vital to understanding your choices. Accommodations share this complexity and have different change policies. Some allow cost-effective changes within a set time frame, while others impose stricter fees or rules.
