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.
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
Very Happy with Aunt Betty
Booked two international flights with Aunt Betty.First refund request in February, took a while to come though,but did arrive after 2 to 3 months. The second I accepted a credit at first,but decided recently to claim a refund.The call staff said it would in my account in 5 to 10 days,which it was.Very happy Aunt Betty and would not hesitate to book with them in the future.
Refund came pretty quick.
So back in April my flight from Melbourne to the UK got cancelled with etihad for me and my partner, and like everyone else, was absolutely fuming when offered only and travel voucher, or huge cancellation fees, so ended up taking flight credit. This didn't really work as my partner at the time was pregnant and due August. After leaving it a while and knowing that the flight credit was never going to work, I rang them on the 1st of September, and asked for a refund, and they said all fees are waiverd because Etihad had waiverd cancellation fees...to. No word of a lie I have got my full refund 3 weeks later, weather I was very very lucky or was super nice to them on the phone, I'm not sure, but I did pay with my English bank account in British pounds, so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it to, but yeah just to let people know they are refunding, keep going
Covid refund processed
Flights cancelled just as countries began locking down. It took 14 weeks, but our refund has now been processed. Comms got better over time and AB followed through with refund.
Refund processed with no issues
My flight from Melbourne to Europe got cancelled in June due to covid. I requested a refund and have received it in full with no issues. It took about 12 weeks as stated but came through as promised.
I phoned & requested a refund on my airfares on 26/4/20 as they had put me onto a different flight without my prior agreement, plus i didn’t really want to travel because of covid-19, they said they would refund the full cost ($3666) less $100 per ticket (that’s 3 tickets so -$300) i agreed, i expected $3366 but today i found they actually refunded the FULL amount ($3666) & didn’t take the $100 per ticket deduction. It’s taken a ridiculously long time but i’m super glad it’s over & i’ve got the money back!
Refund of airfare cancelled due to COVID
I booked two business class flights to London in February for departure in early July. By early May it was clear that we did not want to travel and would have to cancel. I was unable to contact Aunt Betty by phone but their website was fairly clear as to what choices I had and understandably that they were focusing closer departures.
I was annoyed that it looked like we would have to pay a cancellation fee for both Cathay and Aunt Betty )circa $1000 per ticket) but this clearly stated in the terms of the tickets I purchased
In the end because t...
Resolved issue quickly and professionally
I had received a conditional credit as my booking was with Virgin Australia. I used the credit to book a domestic business class flight, however, upon checking my itinerary, I noticed that my ticket was an economy ticket (at the same cost as business class). Long story short, I was given the opportunity to re-book the flight or have my credit extended to March 2021. Now I don't have to waste my credit on a domestic flight and use my credit next year for an international flight.
Costumer service was available quickly, there was a bit of a language barrier with the representatieve so didn’t 100% understand everything she said but nice and answered most of my questions.
Questions & Answers

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
