NOTE: We strongly encourage customers who use a prepaid debit/gift card to refrain from throwing away their card (even if the card is empty) until their travel is complete. In the event the customer’s travel is interrupted, any applicable refund can only be issued to the prepaid debit/gift card. Most airports have cash conversion kiosks available for Guests to convert cash into a prepaid debit card for a $5* charge at domestic locations and a $6* charge at international locations. Any charges associated with the use of a cash conversion machine are collected by the company that owns and operates the machine.

*Rates may vary and are subject to change.
