Catherineasked

Why are the car rental prices for a "Thrifty" car so much cheaper on Aunt Betty than the prices quoted on the "Thrifty" website .
Are there fees not stated that will be charged by "Thrifty" when the vehicle is picked up from the airport?
If there are how do we find out what they will be in advance?

Has anybody booked a car rental through Aunt Betty...

Aunt Betty
Customer Care E.Aunt Betty

Hi Catherine,
Car hire through Aunt Betty is provided by Driveaway Holidays. When you select the car type and company - please go into the 'Whats included" tab and read all the conditions and inclusions. Excess reduction insurance may be taken out when collecting the vehicle and that is additional to the advertised price. If you are hiring the vehicle for more than a few days, it is quite possible that taking out travel insurance that includes rental car excess reduction is a more beneficial and cheaper option than taking out the hire car companies insurance reduction options.
Thank you for your enquiry,
Aunt Betty.


Beege

Beegeasked

I've booked return flights for two people. Am I able to change/cancel the return date for ONE of the passengers, or does it have to be for both because it's under the same booking reference ? For example one of us decides to stay longer overseas whilst the other one heads home on the original return date...

Archangel S.

Archangel S.asked

hi, i booked a ticket last month and i was told that tax was included on my ticket, when im actually got a tax exemption as per OFW's Benefit. is it possible to get a refund for it?

1 answer
Aunt Betty
Customer Care E.Aunt Betty

Hi Archangel,
Please advise your ABY reference.
Please also advise what an OFW is ? If it is a benefit from a country other than Australia, you would not be able to get a refund.

Hi, I am looking to book a ticket to India and price is quite good but these reviews makes me very nervous and hesitant. The reviews are true and they have a call centre and they never connect. What should I do?

Shaun. There will be other providers to choose from if not the airline it's self. Is the price that much better? Paying a little bit more now may save a large loss later. Err on the side of caution I say. Aunt Betty is yet to get back to me a week after saying they'd look at my case. Stay away from Aunt Betty is my advice.

Hey Shaun, their call centre did answer me but they were not helpful in resolving my issue at all. I was too impatient to wait for an email response, so booked through another flight provider (Skidoo) instead for $50 more- their reviews weren't all great but the process was very smooth and I had no issues.

Aunt Betty

Julia D.asked

I am about to book a.flight to the UK with my 3 young children.
Aunt Bettys have come up with a good price.
But the reviews are terrible.

If I book seats will they be with my children

Will there be hidden extras

Will there be good customer service

Customer E.Aunt Betty

Hello Julia
Thank you for coming through to us. When you do a booking with us all passengers on the same booking should all be seated together either by yourself by pre-assigning seat numbers (there may be a cost for this service). Alternatively when you do online checkin 24 hours prior to departure on the airlines website you normally are able to preassign seats at no cost. Either way the airlines do prioritise seating families together.
Hope this helps you make a decision to book with us at a great price.
Kind Regards
Aunt Betty

Johnasked

When are you going to reply to my enquiry ? Aby2287927

1 answer
Aunt Betty
Customer Care E.Aunt Betty

Hi John,
As at last Friday 6th September, the airline is still yet to confirm what action they will take to rectify their schedule change. We presume your return sector will be Auckland / Sydney / Brisbane rather than Auckland / Brisbane direct, but as travel is not until May 2020, the airline may be prioritising more urgent changes. We understand this is frustrating but we cannot give you an updated confirmation until the airline rectifies the issue.
We will contact the airline again this week so see if any further information has come to light.
Regards,
Aunt Betty.

Tom P.

Tom P.asked

I have booked and paid for two tickets exiting from Australia to NZ. When looking at the tickets I discovered that I had neglected to put in the full name as it appears on my passport and just put in the shortened version. After contacting you you're saying that I must pay a $70 processing fee plus another fee yet unknown charged by the airline all this just to put in my full name,( a bit much I think)
Why can't I just present my passport at the airport along with another ID too prove who I am.
I feel that the prices you charge are over the top for just processing my request. Thomas

Aunt Betty
Customer Care E.Aunt Betty

Hi Tom,
We have just sent you a private message to get your booking reference so we can have a look at it.
If your passport name is Tom Patrick Jones for example, and you have just put in Tom Jones and ignored Patrick, that is fine. If you put in TP Jones, then you will need to do a name correction or face being denied boarding at the airport,
Regards,
Aunt Betty.
