We canceled 2 Rick Steves back-to-back tours this spring that involved 3 countries each, and rebooked a single country tour, in order to keep things simple.
I had purchased refundable tickets on United. I haven't tried to get the refund yet, so I don't know that it won't work just fine, but it looks like the process says to cancel the flights, request a credit for future flights, then go back and request the refund. I'm a little leary of just canceling the flights. I'm wondering if anyone has been through this process yet with United and can tell me how smoothly it has gone.
We are in the D.C. area, so United is the major carrier. I'll probably rebook with them, but I'm also curious if anyone can suggest other carriers to Spain. We'd be flying into Barcelona in April and out of Madrid in May. Having done a little research, I'm surprised at how limited the choices seem to be. We like to fly Premium Economy, and because of circumstances, I'd be looking at refundable again. These flights are quite a bit less expensive than the first set of flights, so I don't want to just change the dates.
