What are method-of-payments to get the refund?

You may get your refund in the same method of payment as the original payment method. These are generally of five types:

Credit Card:

Refunds will be processed to the same account through which the payment was made. It'll be credited within seven business days from the date Southwest receives the refund request.

Cash

Refund will be issued by check within 20 business days from the date Southwest receives the refund request.

Points

Remaining Rapid Rewards points will be deposited in the personal account.

Southwest gift card or Southwest LUV Voucher

For Southwest tickets canceled within 24 hours of booking, you need to contact the Customer Service Department of the airline. If you've canceled your reservation after 24 hours, the Southwest gift card or Southwest LUV Voucher will be refunded as an eCredit fund for future travel.

Travel Fund

If a flight is booked with Business Select or Anytime fare, Southwest travel funds from the previous reservation will be refunded as travel funds for future travel.
