Bunch of Liars.. incompetent staff
I have in writing that the credit of my flights cancelled by Malaysia Airlines due to COVID is with the airline. Called the airline and they said it is with the agent.
Called agent and got through to a human after 55 mins of waiting, only to be disconnected because they did not understand. THE WORST TRAVEL AGENCY. DO NOT USE THEM.
Never Use Aunt Betty
Wow reading all your reviews puts me amongst you all. I have a credit shell from Covid I am unable to use. Hours on the phone, they wont refund me they cant supply flights and all I get is "Sorry Mamm" and a promise of an email in 3 days which never comes. Unfortunate for them they have hit the wrong cookie. I will never give up till i get my money back.
Worst travel booking service ever
Totally useless. Booking was cheap, and being part of flight centre group I booked. No way to manage a booking online, airline won't let me do it direct as it was booked by a 3rd party. Ring customer service but they'll never answer, emails ignored. Total shambles and will never book with them ever again. My advice: use another booking service
I have spent 6 hours on the phone to Aunt Betty listening to "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. I am not happy and am desperate for Aunt Betty to respond to my concerns and numerous emails. I am desperate for help as my flight is coming up soon. Aunt Betty, please contact me!!!!.
Cancelled covid flights to cancelled and conditional credit on their terms impossible to use - NO customer care/service
Cancelled covid flights - no refund and credit was valid for 2 months while there was still a travel ban on Australia and they literally told us on the phone that "this is all we can offer you, a 2 month travel credit, if you don't want it or don't like it then tough". They then turned off all reviews on all platforms and looked like they were going to close down and run with everyone's money. They are back and emailed saying we can use our credit but need to book direct with Virgin and the offer is valid for 3 days and would have to pay more a...dd ons. Not in a position to fly anywhere now we are again out of luck. Same story as everyone else it seems. No customer service. No care at all.. it is not worth the hassle with Aunt Betty ever using them again, they cost way too much for what u get.
Please, do not use this company!
I was reading through these reviews and the majority describe the same situation I've been through trying to use my travel credit. I now have to pay extra to be able able to use the credit. Absolutely outrageous!
Thousands owed to me in flight credits that are in threat of expiry purely due to access issues and the worst CS support
Thousands of dollars in cancelled flights left in "Aunt Betty Credit" with a call center that leaves you waiting hours each time you try to reach them and very little to no knowledge or support once you do. Actions that are agreed over the phone with the call center are not actioned at all and you are left to repeat the process again, and again.
Joke of a Company
Do not ever use them. Worst company to deal with. Got stuffed around with credits from Cancelled flights at the start of covid. Finally we we're able to book flights after reading posts on here. But we weren't able to combine the credits so even know the flights we we're booking we're cheaper then both our credits, we still had to pay extra. We wanted to book through virgin and use them towards a flight and accommodation package. We we're told no. Now once we've used them, we have received an email to say that they are now allowing us to book directly through virgin for the remaining 30 dollars... We will never use aunt betty or flight centre.
Call centre in Philippines just tops it off nicely….Heeellloo asic????
Calling all asic officials!!! Pay attention and do your job. We are all being ripped off here! Hold the directors to account…. Read the reviews. I can’t be objective. I can only relate my appalling experience. There is nothing good about this company. They are white collar criminals. The end.
Terrible customer service
Waited 2 hours for phone to be answered. Attempted to rebook flight that was postponed due to covid. Call centre must be located in Singapore. Was told they would call me me back in 10 minutes. Never received a call. Rang the next day and waited another 2 hours for call to be answered. Was told I would have to pay a service fee of $50 another $99 fee for change of flight plus the price increase of flight. Never use this company
Terrible, worst customer service ever
Credit issued due to cancelled flights. On hold for 2hrs+ and no answer. Travel bank offered but the airline not flying to NZ so our family cannot use it. Disappointed ☹️ cannot work out how to even use our credit.
never book with this company again
Absolute horrible experience with this company. just a bunch of crooks. Been over 2 years now, i am chasing for my refund and still waiting.
they don't answer calls neither they respond back to emails. what a joke
Cant contact Aunt Betty at all!
WE got our flights cancelled in April 2020 due to borders closure and was only offered credit shell but I have tried to contact Aunt Betty since Feb 2022 via Contact Form numerous times and have not got a reply from Aunt Betty. I have rung the helpline number and waited over 1 hour over 10 times but it was either the call continued to be on hold or eventually got disconnected.
There is no way to contact Aunt Betty customer service at all!!!
How can the company still operates?
Avoid at all costs
Avoid at all costs!
Extremely difficult to deal with once money is taken. Communication is atrocious, call wait times horrendous, absolute nonsense fees and charges due to rebooking for the 4th time due to covid issues - not our fault or choice. Refused to refund
Every time rebooking, you have to pay more. We had $3,000+ in flight credit, tried booking flights worth about $2,150 and they still want us to pay more!!!
What the f aunt betty, disgraceful,
Do not use this company!!!!
Refund finally approved - but still waiting for the $
After much negotiation with Aunt Betty my request for refund from Virgin was finally approved. Of course, that was just the first stage. 6 weeks later and still waiting for the funds.
It astounds me that this is considered acceptable customer service.
I will never book through Aunt Betty again. Customer service is not a priority. The consultant I finally dealt with, Brad, does the best he can but the company just doesn't seem to care.
I just want the money that is rightfully mine.
Questions & Answers
Has anyone had their flight credit honoured? reading a lot of bad reviews about honouring credits, and it's a bit suspect how you just receive an email instead of credit code or voucher. but hoping there are some people who successfully used their credit?
Not as yet. After 6 hours on the phone spread over several days, I did manage to speak to someone today from Aunt Betty which is positive. However, as I booked the flight for my wife using my credi...t card and my email address as contact, they weren't able to handle my query without first having written authority from my wife saying I can handle the flight credit! All very frustrating.
sounds like you've made some progress though. hope it works out! for your sake and mine!
Has anyone received an email from Aunt Betty to transfer flight credits with there company to Virgin Australia but through a link , but link in email wont work. Have till 20th of this month to decide, received email 4 days ago. Can not get hold of them on phone or email.
I’m sorry Mark, but no, I haven’t received any flight credit transfers. I wish…I’m afraid that anything to do with Aunt Betty is problematic. Maybe you could cut and paste the link details into your...browser rather than directly from the email? Sometimes that works. Good luck!
