Purchased for another person—need to get refund

Hi! I purchased a WannaGetAway fare for a traveler who has to drive now because he is traveling with too much stuff. I need to cancel the trip. Is there a way I can somehow get these travel funds?

Not unless you purchased the new Wanna Get Away Plus fare, those flight credits are transferable.

Unless you bought the Anytime or Business Select fares the flight is nonrefundable but that passenger has a year from when the ticket was originally purchased to use the funds. 

if you bought the wanna get away plus they can transfer the funds to you but the funds remain nonrefundable 

 

you could always wait till day of departure and hope for a delay or cancellation to hope for a refund.
