    Where are you? Have you tried to contact your country's embassy/consulate... They will surely help to contact your family at home who can wire you some money or pay for the change from wherever they are.

    Yeah, it can be expensive depending on the airline. Singapore Airlines is the only airline that will let me change a flight back to North America for free. EVA wants close to $400us to stay a week longer but won't fly me to my original destination! Budget crushers!
    Good luck getting home.

    nonsense again of tyler- this all depends on what type of ticket you booked. ANY airlien has fares that allow changes without penalty or with lower - again: LOOk and read before you buy. and do not panick so easily.
