Free change of Return Flight on EasyJet

Hi all,

Later this week I will be returning from London to Geneva using the return half of an Easyjet ticket.

I want to come back earlier on the same day (no other change to flight plans) and I understand that you can change to an earlier flight in these circumstances. It's in their T&C, section 9.1.5 (sorry, being a bit anal..). Apparently the change is free so long as they have availability.

I will be a bit pushed for time & was hoping someone could answer a question about detailed logistics: can you just walk up to the departure gate with your existing boarding pass for the later flight & they'll board you? If not, do you have to go to a sales desk or check-in desk first to get a new boarding pass?
Any comments from anyone who has done this through Gatwick would be much appreciated

Re: Free change of Return Flight on EasyJet

The Easyjet website is (usually) very clearly written when it comes to their terms and conditions. I've not known them offer a free change of flight unless you book one of their "Flexi" tickets. It does make sense, though, that they'd allow you on an earlier flight if there's space. Let us know how you get on! (aha, a pun!).

Re: Free change of Return Flight on EasyJet

I have done this and yes did get on an earlier flight free (even to a different airport)!

I was in London to get my swiss visa and it took shorter than I thought so I was back at the airport several hours early. They didn't have an earlier flight to edinburgh (my original destination) but they did have an earlier flight to Glasgow - since I was living halfway between the two that was fine for me. I went to the easyjet customer service desk - not the check in desk - and they sorted it out for me there.

It is interesting to read that they only do it for your return journey - will keep that in mind!!

You need to change your boarding pass, so you need to go to an EasyJet desk at Gatwick.

Re: Free change of Return Flight on EasyJet

Yes, I've done this several times, but you might be better off going to the Easyjet sales desk first because, one time, having waited in the check-in queue, I was sent over to the sales desk and had to start all over again.
Also, don't make the change online because, although they'll change the flight for free they'll probably add on taxes etc. which sometimes cost quite a bit.

Re: Free change of Return Flight on EasyJet

Easyjet is still a good deal because, with Swiss, on their cheapest tickets, you can't change the return flight at all and, with BA, you can change the return half but at quite a cost.

Re: Free change of Return Flight on EasyJet

I have had a different experience - had to return to UK early and were charged about 130 for 2 tickets - I did it online and my tickets instead of a week away were for 2 days away.
