What Exactly is a Southwest ‘Wanna Get Away’ Fare

Not sure what Southwest Airlines pricing types mean? You can book the best Southwest food by understanding the distinctions. Use this guide

to learn about Southwest Wanna Get Away fares. Southwest's Wanna Get Away fares are the cheapest and best discounts, but they're not for everyone.

Southwest Airlines offers Wanna Get Away, Anytime, and Business Select fares. We'll discuss their new Wanna Get Away Plus cuisine in another post.

Southwest lacks business class, extra legroom, and basic economy. However, pricing discrepancies aren't as big as other carriers. Remember 

Wanna Get Away rates are non-refundable. All fare buckets except business select and full-price “Y” refundable tickets are included.

Southwest's "Y" fare is refundable anytime. Change your ticket at any time without penalty with this fare. Standby travel between city pairs on

the original date is allowed. Changes rarely affect anytime fares because they are consistent across dates.

Business Select — Southwest's premium ticket offers priority boarding, extra Rapid Rewards Points per dollar, and a free beverage or beer.

Refunding these tickets applies monies to Southwest Airlines travel for the original ticketed passenger only. 

No tariff change is allowed for standby travel between the same city pairs on the original date. This is Southwest's closest to first class.
