JetBlue's cancellation policy changes depending on the type of fare that you have purchased. The airline has both refundable and non-refundable fares.
The Blue Basic fare is completely non-refundable and cannot be cancelled.
The Blue, Blue Plus and Mint Fares are refundable, however, it will cost a fee to make a cancellation or change to your booking. Sometimes, this can cost almost as much as the flight itself and isn't the best option if you're looking for a full refund or something close to a full refund. However, if you're happy with getting a small amount of the cost of your flight back, these fares are a good choice.
The Blue Extra fare is completely refundable and doesn't require you to pay a change or cancellation fee.
It's important to check which fare you are purchasing at the time of booking. We will let you know if your flight is refundable in the fare rules when you buy your flight.
At Alternative Airlines, you can add Cancellation Protection to your JetBlue flight, which will entitle you to a full refund if you can't use your flight due to a number of emergency circumstances, including scheduled airline failure, adverse weather, redundancy and many other reasons. Cancellation Protection covers you for a refund regardless of which fare you purchase, giving you added peace of mind in case you can't use your reservation.
