    Any help on cancelling, refunds, air transportation, please help me. My trip is scheduled for next week and I need to get out of it as painlessly as possible.

    Southwest.

    I am so damn depressed right now that I'm just about ready to cry. Someone has been stealing money from me for years and I have let them get away with it.

    I am guessing your sister needs your help again? You should be able to cancel your room and not lose a deposit as you are far enough out...I believe most have 48 hour cancelation policy.

    Looks like you are in luck with Southwest too.

    Sorry you have to cancel Breeze; totally sucks to be looking forward to something and have plans fall through.

    I am heading to Vegas Saturday. If you do end up going, I'll buy you a drink.

    I finally got to use the dislike button...It was in a good way Breeze. I immediately felt your pain. I agree with Breanna that your room should easily be cancelled, and although I don't fly with Southwest the link sounds good. (I fly cheapass Allegiant but always buy tripflex so when I cancel or rebook it only costs me a bit to put it in the future flight bank) Hope your week gets better.

    Hey Breeze, it sucks when life gets in the way.
    ...I think we have all been there at some point.
    Hope it all works out for you.

    Cheers

    Breeze, hope things improve.

    With Southwest, you should be able to get a refund or, at least, a flight credit

    Noooooo!!!! You have my sympathies. I've had to cancel a couple of trips lately and it sucks.

    Hope things turn around for you.

    Did you pay for the Early Bird Check-in? If you cancel you might forfeit that money. But if you reschedule for some arbitrary date you keep the EB. I think.

    Hotel should be easy. Airline will give you credit for future flight - you can do it online.

    Let us know how it worked for you on hotel and airfare.

    Southwest you can cancel and you do not lose your fare. I cancel all the time (if using points, they put them back into your SW account, but there is a 1 year time limit to reuse). For other purchase methods, refer to site as far as how you reuse that fare.

    Don't go intentionally chasing it, but let's hope your luck does a 180 and you win that and more! ;) Best of luck!!
