Can I cancel or make changes to my reward booking?

It depends on the type of reward. Some can be cancelled without penalty and others are nonrefundable.

Canceling a reward ticket
If you cancel an unused Flex Plus reward ticket, you won’t need to pay any charges.
For First Class Flex tickets, there will be a fee of USD 50.
If you have a Saver reward ticket or a combined Saver/Flex or Saver/Flex Plus reward ticket, a fee of USD 75 will apply. We can only give you a refund if you submit your reward ticket within one year of the date of issue. We won’t be able to refund any expired miles.

Modifying travel dates:
If you have a Flex Plus or Flex reward ticket, you can change your travel dates without a charge. If you have a Saver reward ticket, or a combined Saver/Flex reward ticket, there will be a fee of USD 25 for each passenger on the itinerary.

Changing destinations:
If you have a Saver reward ticket, you can change your destination to another location on our route network within the same zone for USD 25. You won’t be charged to change the destination of your Flex Plus or Flex reward ticket. We will cancel your unused reward ticket and credit your miles back to your account (minus any expired miles). We’ll then issue a new ticket with a new validity period and destination. You will need to pay any applicable taxes.

  • If you wish to change your destination to a different zone, you will need to cancel your ticket and purchase a new one.
  • Once you’ve started your journey, you can’t make any changes to your destination.

Making other changes:
For any other changes to an unused Saver, Flex, or Flex Plus reward ticket (including a change of cabin class or a change to a different ticket type), there will be a charge of USD 25. We’ll cancel your existing reward ticket and credit your miles back to your account (minus any expired miles). We’ll then issue a new ticket with a new validity period. You will need to pay any applicable taxes.

Expired tickets:
If you have an unused, expired ticket, we will refund any taxes you paid in full without charging a service fee. However, we will not be able to refund your miles.

Upgrades:
To cancel an upgrade reward, please call your nearest Emirates Contact Center. If you do not use an upgrade reward, we will refund your miles in full (minus any expired miles).
