Unaccompanied Minor

New Arrival

When making a reservation for an unaccompanied minor, at what point does it add the unaccompanied minor price? Is it after the purchase page after entering in the card information? Thank you for your help!

Hello - 


I would think it would be that page since no earlier page asks for the child's date of birth for Southwest to know that you are purchasing the UM service. After clicking "Purchase," a dialogue box should appear with more information about the service and adding the charges associated with it to the total price.


Safe travels!

When can I pay the Unaccompanied Minor service charge?

You pay the Unaccompanied Minor service charge at the time of booking on, by calling us at 1-800-435-9792, or at any Southwest ticket counter.
