    I was just charged $325 to change my departure date for my girlfriend and I due to a death in the family. Why did I pay so much more than the advertised Volaris pricing for flight changes. The next day I received an email from Volaris confirming my departure changes and they charged me $724 instead……HELP!

    Unfortunately, Volaris’ flight change policy is so restrictive that it ruins what otherwise is a very good airline. Even if you spend the money to buy what they call the “Flexibility option” on your ticket, it’s still extremely limited on what you can change. I’ve had to literally walk away from 4 flights in the past 2 months because either the penalty for changing the flight was higher than a new ticket ($100) or they wouldn’t let me change the flight’s destination. (original flight was Tuxla->Cancun, but wanted to change to Tuxla-Mexico City). A few tips on buying a ticket with Volaris; since a ticket isn’t refundable after 24 hours, don’t pay for a seat or luggage until you’re absolutely sure you’ll be on the flight (one caveat; I’ve noticed that the luggage fees for Volaris are all over the maps. Sometimes as low as $20, sometimes as high as $75. I have no idea why).

    I’m not understanding the flight changing fees being advertised on here. I purchased plane tickets and the AIRLINE changed my flight dates. when I noticed *after I payed* and went to complain and ask for them to change them to what I originally wanted they said they’d gladly do it for $200!!!!! My flight is 4 months from now and they are charging me $200 to fix an error that *they* made! So ridiculous.

      Volaris has always given me a voucher for the full fare plus 25% whenever they changed the flight. Otherwise, they have always put me on a new flight that works out for me. You need to demand the airline rep to adhere to their policy and asked for a supervisor.

    I will recommend people to travel with Volaris airlines if they are not sure of the travel dates. Even the Volaris change flight policy is so flexible that it puts passengers’ interests above everything else. No wonder why I am always going to travel with this airline.

    I just booked air ticket this morning to my destination. But suddenly i got some important personal work to do and I didn’t know the precess to change date on my booked air ticket. I called the airlines customer sevice, but he told me their will be change fee applicable, if i modify my ticket. You written that the airlines allows free change within 24-hour of booking. Please let me know how to change date on volaris flight without extra change fee.

    I booked a connecting flight from Guadalajara to La Paz. My initial flight with United from the US was changed by United so I called to cancel/change my connecting Volaris flight. Volaris is so restrictive and their customer service agents are just told not to listen to customers. I am so upset as I just lost my money twice (over $220) with them.
    Mexico needs to open up for competition from US carriers so we don’t have to be at the mercy of Volaris.
