I have been waiting for my REFUND for over 12 mths
There call centre are Terrible, heartless and have o compassion for customers in hardship… we will NEVER use them again
DO NOT USE
DO NOT book with aunt betty they are useless. I booked a flight for a certain day and i have a screen shot that it is confirmed then they email me a completely different date! I called to ask about it and they said I booked it and it was my fault and I asked for an email address so I could email my screen shot and prove that it wasn't my fault and she started yelling at me saying she will change the date just tell her what I wanted. They are honestly rude and horrible to deal with do not book with them just don't do it!
Would avoid using in future
Received a credit for 4 Virgin flights cancelled at start of Covid pandemic. Credit note received for total value of around $850.
Went to book one way flight at a cost of $255 and was advised I had to pay an additional $36 as the credit is per flight.
Absolutely ridiculous that I had to make an additional payment when I have credit already available. On top of that, there is a deadline to use the credit - which is reasonable but not when they restrict the use of the credit. The credit note also does not state this, it just states the full credi...
Worse service ever
I waited for more than a year for the refund of my ticket that I couldn't use because Covid , called thousands times before.and I got no answer for the issue .
I wish I didn't even have to tick one star
Worst travel company I've experienced. Flights were cancelled due to covid but Aunt Betty wouldn't provide any information or updates. They wouldn't even confirm the flights were cancelled even though Australia had closed it's borders and the flight wasn't going.
I tried relentlessly for over 10 months to get a refund but with no joy. Had to lodge a dispute with the bank & credit card and thankfully they were able to refund us the money. They provided Aunt Betty with one month to respond to the dispute but as expected, Aunt Betty never respon...ded to them. Calling Aunt Betty was useless, there was no email address to use and no live chat function. Kept promising me they would email me an update to let me know what was happening with my money - never did. PLEASE AVOID for your own sanity.
do not trust Aunt Betty!!
Disgraceful outcome after one year of waiting for our refund.
Aunt Betty is now asking us to deal directly with the Airlines to claim ticket cost (COVID related) and will not be involved anymore.
Why should we use Aunt Betty in that case?
very poor customer support - be ready to lose your money!!
HORRIBLE, SCAMMING THIEVES
I had a booking cancelled in March 2020 and December 2020 still havent been able to use voucher her as they claim it havent been processed yet, even though i have been sent a confirmation of the voucher. Now being talked to as if im a baby and not being listened to. They cut the voucher in half first and now denying me to get the remaining 1200$
ADVOID AT ALL COSTS.
Do not use Aunt Betty, book directly with the airlines.
Aunt Betty will note refund your flights, will not provided communications of so called conversations.
The airline has confirmed the refund is to be completed on Aunt Bettys end, over 14 months in the making.
They never pay you back scam
They didn't refund our flight,they didn't give us a credit everything with covit 19, we lost 1300 dollars. They ripped us off when it was only fair we had some form of good will
Terrible to communicate with.
They are very difficult to deal with and delayed the process. The flights went up and it costs us more money. Terrible service would not recommend this company to anyone
Impossible to work with.
Flights were cancelled in December as part of the Covid restrictions and Aunt Betty would not issue a refund - only credit. They do not give you a code or anything that can be used at check out. The only way to claim the credit is to email them and they will call you during a window between 7am and 7pm. No direct number. If you are unable to answer the call when they call, that's it you're screwed. If you call back the number they called on you get an "unfortunately, the number you have called is incomplete or incorrect" message. It's now been ...4 days since I've tried to use my credit and they have called only called once despite multiple emails asking to call back. Their entire plan seems to be not to give refunds and then make it impossible to use credit so people just give up.
Credit/voucher refund from Aunt Betty
Refunding your money back isn't an easy task to do if your asking it to a wrong person or company to whom you bought your ticket. I would say I'm still lucky i dealt with Aunt Betty, although the processing was quite long to wait, at least this time i received an email that I'm going to have my refund after two weeks.
Aunt Betty refund
My flights for April 2020 got cancelled and made into a travel credit. I recently had trouble making flights with the credit and then contacting them to ask for a refund on my iPad so tried on laptop. I was able to submit my refund email on laptop and got a reply saying it would be processed within 2 weeks. I received my refund in 4 days. With all the reviews I had read, I was more than a little worried. Thank you for coming through for me.
I had a booking with this company for flights valued at $525, which were put into credit due to flight cancellations because of covid. Aunt Betty claims it is not charging any fees for changes / cancellations, as is the airline. However, I now try to book $410 worth of flights online with my credit voucher, but there is no way to book online and use the credit voucher. You have to ring Aunt Betty, and they want $575 for flights that I can buy online for $410. So much for no cancellation fees.
Update 1: After declining the above offer, i rang ba...
Will Never Use Again, Impossible To Communicate With
Booked Air fares with AUNT BETTY online travel booking service, part of the Flight Centre Group. When Covid hit, they were impossible to communicate with. Eventually our flights got cancelled by the airline.
They were still impossible to communicate with, did not respond to email or calls. Only sent generic emails offering a credit, without providing any info about the conditions. In the end I had to lodge a complaint with NSW Fair trading, who contacted Aunt Betty, and they then responded offering a full refund which I got 10 weeks later. Extremely poor communication, and non existent customer service.
Questions & Answers
I have a booking number says confirmed but I still do not have my flight tickets, the payment has already been done to my credit card, can someone help me the flight is next week
I have Virgin Credit with you for Bali which expired in January 2021. Will this now be extended to a later date and can it be used for another domestic destination??
You need to seek advice from "Aunt Betty".
My flight was cancelled on 19 March 2020, your office informed that my refund will be proceed near 12 weeks since. I didn t have any reply or advice on my refund status and I am still waiting for my refund. Can one of your representative replied my questions? Please respect our customer's right, at least, we are protected under Australian Customer right Act. I have been writing various mails and refund forms, NO Replied at all. I will keep my last hope to receive your reply soon. My booking number is ABY3159956.
Don't expect a reply. Did you realise this company is owned by Flight Center?
Will NEVER use them again and by inference never use Flight Center again
