You can also choose to purchase cancellation insurance, but make sure you check the terms and conditions.
For more expensive, flexible tickets, the airlines will often let you cancel with or without a fee. Some airlines also allow you to change your ticket within a certain time with or without an extra fee.

Airport tax refund
If you for whatever reason do not travel on your booked flight, you are entitled to a refund of the airport taxes. You have the right to a refund regardless of the type of ticket you have purchased.
SAS will refund taxes and other relevant charges if you send an e-mail with your booking reference and name to: email@example.com.

If you have traveled with another company, contact the airline to ask how you can claim your refund.
If the airline goes bankrupt after you have booked your flight, but before you have traveled, you have the right to a refund. Unfortunately a claim through the bankruptcy trustee will normally not result in a refund.

If you have paid for your flight with a bank card or credit card, you can request a refund from your card provider.
