Travel may be purchased for 5, 10 or 15 year increments at a cost of $5000 per five year increments. United has created a tool to help aid you in determining how many years of travel will be need to be purchased if you are not eligible for retiree travel on your exit date. The tool, which has been developed as part of an excel spreadsheet, can be accessed on our website and used on any computer where Microsoft Excel has been enabled.

All purchased travel will be deducted from your Early Out payment and United has stated they will not extend this deadline.
