How long do I have to redeem my voucher?

Is there a difference between a Southwest LUV Voucher and travel funds?

Yes. Travel funds are leftover credits from canceled reservations. For example, if you booked a flight for $150 but ended up having to cancel, $150 in funds will be held for future travel by the expiration date (as long as you canceled at least ten minutes before the scheduled departure). You will also receive travel funds if you find a lower fare than you booked, and you rebook at the lower fare. The difference can then be applied toward future airfare.
