Default multi-use ESTA?

Hello all,
Just a quick query about the ESTA that I need before travelling to the States from the UK. I got one recently to travel to Miami in March. Now I'm back in the UK and we are returning to Washington DC for a holiday in May. Can I use the same ESTA and just change the trip details or do I need to apply/buy a new one?
Thank you!
Grace

You don't 'buy' an ESTA - its FREE! Once your ESTA is approved, it's generally valid for multiple entries for up to 2 years, if I remember correctly.

Used to be! These days you have to pay to get the opportunity of having your mugshot and prints stored in DHS's vast computer.

If you have the same passport and none of your answers to the yes/no questions have changed (i.e. you haven't meanwhile decided to take up pimping or decided to overthrow the government), you can use the same ESTA. There's is no charge for updating the addresses/airline details.

Well it's $14 if approved and $6 if denied.

Don't need to update details on the ESTA though, but it might be worth while changing the destination address.

Thank you everybody for your replies! As usual this forum is so helpful.
I'll just update my existing ESTA online. Cheers
