Impossible to get a hold of.
Wondering whether Aunt Betty has gone into liquidation? I have called and emailed numerous times about using a flight credit and have had no luck with getting through to anyone.. help!!
edited reviews after my issue was solved
Finallly, my issue was solved today. Thanks to Brad for prompt action from your end. Didnt have to deal with the customer service this time and Brad was able to issue a new ticket for me. It was just the matter of finding the right person to look into your situation and this time, it was Brad from Aunt Betty for me:)
Initially frustrating to deal with but I’m the end they handled my issue well
I had $1,600 AUD in credit with Aunt Betty and I was trying frantically to re-book my flights so that I can visit elderly parents in the UK. It was very difficult to get someone to answer my calls, or respond to my emails. Eventually however a rep reached out to me on social media to explain the delays and I was able to speak with someone who helped me to rebook. My advice is be patient. Call the 1300 number, don’t use any local numbers, stick your phone on hands-free and be prepared to wait a couple of hours. Someone will eventually pick up, they are just completely over-run at the moment with calls but they will get to you.
Original service dreadful but upon complaining to management resolved satisfactorily.
Since writing the below review Aunt Betty have resolved the matter very satisfactorily. For rectifying the situation give them a star rating of 5 but the original service was a 1. Thank you.
The ticket was cheap ish but it just hasn’t paid off going with them. Trying to change my flight return date has so far proved impossible. Call centre person couldn’t speak proper English and line quality so poor. Therefore after he said it would cost $10k to change flight return date I gave up (original return ticket $3k). Two email requests asking to c...hange travel date sent over a week ago remain unanswered. Will never use again. Appalling company and what a stupid name. Thoroughly regret booking through them. Have been flying between Aus and UK for the last 35 years and this is the most uncommunicative company have ever used.
Booked over 3.5k of flights. We are eligible for refund due to flight cancellation. Over a year later and we are still waiting. Attempted phone call to help cut out after 30 min hold.
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.
Travel with Aunt Betty
It hasn't been easy applying for a refund/credit due to Covid-19. Although, after many conversations via email and phone my request has been considered and approved. However, in future I will be using my local travel agent to avoid some of the issues I have encountered re requesting my refund via Aunt Betty.
I would like to thank Dike for his professionalism and prompt work and assistance with my query today.
He was pleasant, polite & patient and provided clear advice.
PS: They stated I'd receive the refund within 12 weeks however going by all the negative feedback I'm reading on this site, I could be waiting well and truly beyond the timeframe.
Still waiting for a refund for a canceled flight in April 20 - Update - Received Refund finally
Very very poor communication from Aunt betty. I have been patient as I understand that it's a hard time, but it looks like they are taking me for a ride. I booked a flight via Singapore airlines for April 20 and a return for June 20. The flights were canceled by the airline and a refund was provided by the airline, but I have still not got it. when I finally got someone online, they told me it would be processed in 3 weeks and its been over 4 months and still no news. I hate it that they don't communicate, I mean how difficult is it for them to keep us updated. They have lost me as a customer and I will make a Consumer Complaint.
COVID-19 Refund anyone else waiting !!!!
Booked Flight to Tasmania on the 06/01/2021. The next Day Greater Brisbane was put into lockdown for 3 days and Tasmanian Government declared it as a hotspot!! Lodged the refund form as directed by their site. No confirmation of receiving my claim by them, Tasmania is still not allowing people from greater Brisbane in! The intended flight is to depart tomorrow 15/01/2021 !!!! As of 2:15pm 14/01/2021 still no confirmation from them to say whether they have received my claim!!!! I feel rather distressed about the lack of communication from this Company.
In August logged onto Aunt Betty website and followed their apply for a refund instructions for our Singapore flights in November that had been cancelled by the airline. Received an email confirmation that my refund request had been logged. Did the patient thing and waited the 12 weeks that it said it would take but after 16 weeks no refund. Searched and found a contact number and called them. After a long wait finally got through and spoke to a consultant who said "we have no record of your request being processed, I'll do that for you now and...you can expect your refund in around 12 weeks"! No matter how much I protested he stuck to the script and now I'm having to wait for another 12 weeks. Unacceptable!!! He said that you need to speak to someone in person to action your refund request as it needs "Human Intervention". Go figure, an automated system that is anything but! I'll never use them again and urge anyone thinking about using them not to! They are just buying more time before they have to give back money that the airline refunded months ago.
Service is good long wait time to get through to support
Service I received wasn't bad, wil give them 7 or 8/10
- Good price (relatively)
- Support staff I have spoken to were good (one of them was less clear on details)
- Cannot manage the flight online (must call support)
- Support calls can take ages! 1/2Hr wait time wont be unusual. Once got through service is good...
Full 'mostly' refund post COVID cancellations
I was very worried that I wouldn't get refunded for May2020 flights, it took a while, but it was. I can't imagine the hell that time must have been. So I have nothing but good things to say in the circumstance.
Got my refund!!
I booked flights in September 2019 for Europe July 2020. Have been waiting for a while but they always answer my calls and tell me the status of my refund. I called again last week and they told me Qantas had released the funds and that it was being processed. Went back into my account today!! Hang in there. It will come!!
Received refund of $2500 from Aunt Betty for cancelled flights due to Corona-virus from
Case # ABY2997652
I know it took longer than wanted however the reality they have been waiting to be refunded from airlines
Reading through some recent reviews they have been coping a bagging for not refunded quick enough However they also have a responsibility to stay in business to get the refunds from the airlines to refund
Be patient and try and have a little understanding of the position they find themselves in
Huge work load with no reward
Its easy to shoot the messenger who are trying to act in every bodies interest
