    Airline Ryanair.

    Stuffed up the return date by picking from the wrong month drop down box.

    Tried to use 24hour grace period to correct the date through online chat. Correct date should have been cheaper. They refused to allow me to do this, saying I could only change to a more expensive ticket so sold me the correct date for some made up higher price meaning I had to give them the difference.

    If I could just cancel the whole lot and start again I could get it cheaper for the initial price and dates I actually wanted.

    Is it possible to cancel for zero fee, all money back within 24hours or not?

    Cheers

    Usually it is possible, but I have only heard of people doing this by telephone to Ryanair rather than on-line chat.

    Ryanair do not do refunds but will do corrections within 24 hours (wrong dates etc) but no full refund like many other airlines offer

    Pick up the phone and speak to them, worth a shot.

    It is a concession that is offered and is discretionary. There is no legal obligation in the U.K./EU for a right to cancel free of charge within that time period if you make an error. Many airlines will however allow changes penalty free if a mistake is made. It is therefore important to carefully check everything not only before pressing the ‘Buy’ button but also immediately the confirmation email/paperwork is received.

    In the US I believe there is a 24h period for cancelling if booking direct with a US airline.
