Booking process was simple and well priced. Refund process was easy. A simple email and online form to fill out. The funds took a while to come through but that was explained in the emails and online form.
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.
A long tough process but professional customer service representative (Brad)
In the midst of the changing face of tourism, resulting from the CoVID-19 pandemic, I found Aunt Betty customer service representative, Brad, to be professional, courteous, realistic and reasonable in his management of a difficult customer complaint.
I had travel booked for 2 x tickets return from the UK in MAY/June 2020. After initially requesting a "quote for refund" through the online web-form as requested by the automated Aunt Betty email service, I found myself receiving a myriad of contrasting communications from the automated Aunt Bet...ty service. Some of the varied responses included emails acknowledging our request, others telling us that a refund was being processed (we didn't ask for this to occur), and even an email with the receipt of a travel credit (we never asked for this either). I raised these concerns with customer service representative 'Brad" after receiving his contact through an online forum. Brad deserves credit for his professionalism in taking care for the needs of the business whilst communicating effectively and in a timely fashion with us as the customer. He communicated consistently in a fair and professional tone and gave considered and thoughtful responses to our questions. My key feedback for Brad is his noticeable focus on providing business best practice whilst using good reasoning in application to our specific case. Brad and I traded 36 emails which eventuated in a fair and reasonable outcome which was justifiable on both ends. NOTE: Brad's customer service and communication will make me consider Aunt Betty as a future option for booking travel.
Money was refunded
My money was fully refunded which took a lot longer than expected but glad I got it back.
I thought it would be not possible but it all got sorted in the end.
Thanks Aunt BETTY
Wow much better than the last
Spoken with aunt Betty waiting time less than a minute and issue resolved in a very professional manner will get refund in the next 12 weeks from today. Very amazed to the outcome and very happy no further fees and full refund will apply

Great customer service at a time of uncertainty
I just spent a long time with an Aunt Betty phone consultant trying to re-arrange my flight bookings to get home (to Australia) from the US, related to our coronavirus fears. I did this via Skype which was the least expensive way to manage the long wait times. Once my consultant was on the phone, I gave him quite a range of various date pairings of how my booking might be altered. With each change of question, the consultant calmly and coherently researched the answer, explained the rationale for the possible solution and its ramifications, etc. He was polite, respectful and clear. I could not have asked for more. Well done to that employee and your organisation.
Need help! Urgent support ABY2408503
I understand how busy things are but we are becoming quite stressed with our flights less than 2 weeks away.
I have tried sending emails and calling but no response.
I don't want to put an angry review up as I understand these times are unique.
Our reservation code is ABY2408503 and. Our final destination is Israel via Jordan. Both countries have blocked tourists from entry.
We would like a refund and email confirming this.
Hope to hear from you soon.
can i get Refund for my flight?
Hi me and my wife have a flight on the 3rd of June to Zagreb Croatia , is it possible to cancel the tickets and get a refund? Aunt Betty Reservation ABY3355548, thank you
received call back, hence changing the rating
I have been calling countless time (once was on hold for over 4 hrs), also have emailed and no response to specific questions. Only response I have received so far is on generic email stating COVID-19 update. I along with my family have flights booked for 2nd April to Melbourne-Shanghai-Melbourne and want to cancel and get a refund on our fares, Cathay has also confirmed full refund without any penalties. Submitted cancellation request on AuntBetty website, but no confirmation received. Also the card I used for booking will not be active in an...other months time, I need to provide the bank details to the team for refund as well. Can someone please get it touch ..... My booking ref is ABY3089943. Edited 14 March. I got call back from Aunt Betty team and they processed my cancellation also sent the confirmation email. I thank Auntbetty team and happily change my overall rating to 4 star. Hope you continue resolving the concerns of other customers as well.
Need to get in touch
Let's give things a try via this website instead of calling/filling out forms. I tried both for the last few days with no luck. I have a great experience with Aunt Betty in the past, easy to reach and clear communication, which is why I don't want to leave a negative review. I also understand and emphasize with the immense amount of messages Aunt Betty must receive.
However, I need to change my flight from Sydney to Amsterdam through Abu Dhabi with Etibad from the 28th of March to the 21st. And I know this isn't in the 4 days-limit you guys cl...early set, I do need to give my work my week final notice TOMORROW. So please come back to me as soon as possible with confirmation, I am happy to pay extra costs. Cheers and thanks for the help! Bart
ABY3103285 Reschedule Thai airway flights from Perth 14th March to the 13th March
I have requested previously to reschedule my flight from Perth to Bangkok on March 14, to March 13. I must arrive in Phu Quoc on March 14 2020 due to important training starting on the 15th of March. You have updated my itinerary to arrive in Vietnam on March 15th. This will defeat the purpose of traveling as I will not make it on time. Can you please reschedule this otherwise I'm going to have to put through a refund request
Urgent notification of flight change - can't get through to customer service
UPDATE: I woke up at 6 am this morning to attempt to call Aunt Betty and got through straight away. The lady I spoke with was very helpful and I will be receiving a refund for the flights minus admin charges.
This morning I received and email stating there is an urgent flight change to my itinerary. I have called multiple times and haven't been able to get through to anyone.
I can't accept these changes as the flight change doesn't work for me. Booking number ABY3251596
No response to online requests - please advise *UPDATED 10/03
Update: A representative has been helpful through private message to deal with our flight changes. Issue is currently resolved for the time being. Thanks for your hard work during this busy time.
I have tried to leave this as a private mediation but I see your representatives responding to public reviews posted after mine but not responding to this one so I will post this as a public review now.
Booking Ref: ABY3028333
We have submitted 2 requests online in regards to our booking on 02/03/20. No confirmation of the submission has been sent to our emails to confirm receipt of the request, or any sort of submission reference number so we know that the request has actually been received.
My requests got successfully resolved
I had to contact customer service with 2 different requests. As many others mentioned below, waiting on the phone line is hopeless, no answers for hours. I started with a negative feedback, however both of my issues promtly got resolved by the team since (requests I submitted via forms on the website) including a typing mistake I made during booking. Hence, I'm updating my review, and thanking to the person who helped with my booking.
Canceling the booking
Spoke to Keith, who was very helpful, unfortunately couldn’t cancel the booking, the refund was only the airport tax, but that wasn’t the travel agency company’s fault, I will use this company again.
Customer service Lala is very good!
I booked one way tickets first and then change to round one. Nearly the same price shows online, there is very little changing fee, and I am very appreciated. Lala is very good , she is patient, and helpful, and solved problems quick!

Thank you to Marvin
Marvin was so professional and helpful when I rang to discuss our China Southern flights to China and how to cancel our tickets due to Coronavirus. Thank you to Marvin
Excellent assistance and help. I can't thank you enough for helping me Re-book my ticket

Refund of tickets to Wuhan without hassle
I had to cancel two return tickets to Wuhan, China with AuntBetty due to Coronavirus outbreak. There was very short waiting time when I called AB customer support line 1300 472 222. I was assisted by Enzo who was extremely helpful and kind. Enzo checked very carefully my booking and Cathay Pacific ticketing details and showed utmost sympathy to those affected by the virus. This is my second time booking with AuntBetty and both times went very smoothly. Full refund was issued this time without hassle. I will definitely book with AuntBetty again in the future.
Exemplary customer service.
I booked a ticket to Japan via Taiwan and had to cancel due to issues in relation to the recent outbreak. We're still working on getting the refund but I just wanted to call out that Djehll's service was above and beyond and that all businesses should strive to have people like her in customer service. Not only did she show professionalism, empathy and clear communication, she also demonstrated immense patience as I had her ask her manager questions multiple times. Really appreciate being looked after despite making a cancellations and I don't expect this kind of service in any other company. Thanks again Djhell!
Amazing after service
For somewhat reason, the booking system booked my flight ticket for an incorrect date. Upon calling Aunty Betty and speaking to Zel, she immediately offered to rectify the flight booking and waive any additional fees. Zel was very professional, polite and considerate on the telephone. Five stars to Zel!
Great customer service.
I booked a ticket to my homeland and due to some issues I had to cancel and asked for a refund. These people helped me with the refund of my $900 which is great. Thanks aunt betty team! Speacially Raffy who was leading it. Thankyou.
Easy to use website, fantastic prices. We have used Aunt Betty twice so far and the prices offered just cannot be beat!! Thanks Aunt Betty for helping us afford to travel more often.
Full refund and zero penalties due to Coronavirus outbreak (CZ)
I booked tickets to Europe via Aunt Betty on 11th August 2019 transiting in GuangZhou via China Southern Airline. My flights got reissued to the 15th Jan 2020 due to an airline schedule change. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, China Southern made a statement about full refunds for flights booked before the 24th January 2020 with flight tickets starting with "CZxxx"
Then I contact Aunt Betty about my cancellation refund and they complied with China Southern policies & statements. Usually as a third party company, they would charge a fee however this wasn't the case and I was very pleased about the customer service and prompt response from the team.
