Need more points? With the Rapid Rewards Points Center, you can purchase additional points to get your reward flight even faster!

 

Starting summer 2023, for Wanna Get Away® or Wanna Get Away Plus™ award travel reservations: if you do not cancel your reservation at least 10 minutes before the flight’s original scheduled departure time, any points used for booking will be forfeited, along with any taxes and fees associated with your award travel reservation.

The number of points needed for a particular Southwest® flight is set by Southwest and will vary depending on destination, time, day of travel, demand, fare type, point redemption rate, and other factors, and are subject to change at any time until the booking is confirmed.

For Anytime or Business Select® award travel reservation: the points used for booking will continue to be redeposited to the purchaser's Rapid Rewards® account, and any taxes and fees associated with the award travel reservation will be converted into a flight credit for future use.
